Libération - France | Friday, February 14, 2014

Traditional journalism Libé's strong point

The majority shareholders of the crisis-ridden left-liberal daily Libération have presented a new financing model in which not the paper edition but digital content and additional activities such as a cultural centre take the foreground. The paper's editors have voiced loud protest. Libération should concentrate on its traditional strengths, senior editor Fabrice Rousselot writes: "We must be allowed to work on the relaunch in a less dire economic context. We must come up with a clearer editorial line, we must be more incisive and more unpredictable. Less provocative at times, too. But also more intelligent. We must retain our distinctive perspective on news that is increasingly becoming trivialised, but which must nevertheless be decoded on a daily basis. Libé must once again set the tone in culture, politics, economics and society, and take pride in its differences, its writing style, and its freedom of expression."
