Le Nouvel Observateur

The weekly magazine Le Nouvel Observateur was founded in 1954 by former resistance fighters, including Gilles Martinet, a former journalist for the news agency Agence France Presse. The magazine soon encountered financial difficulties and in 1964 was taken over by entrepreneur Claude Perdriel, who created his own press group. The magazine became successful thanks to its description of the socio-cultural trends of the post-1968 years. After running into financial difficulties again it shifted its focus to major reports. In 1999 it launched its website with its own editing team. Today Le Nouvel Observateur is one of France's leading news magazines.
