Le Figaro

  • City: Paris
  • Language: French
  • Circulation: 336 939

Founded in 1828, Le Figaro is the oldest French daily. Firmly established as a conservative paper, Le Figaro, as The Irish Times puts it, is to Nicolas Sarkozy what Pravda was to the Soviet Politburo. Owned by Dassault, a major civil and military aeronautics group, it is particularly appreciated for its international coverage and its salmon-coloured financial news section.
