"Le Monde" is a daily newspaper published in Paris, one of the most important and widely respected newspapers in the world. Since its start, "Le Monde" has covered national and world news in-depth and analyzed it closely. Its writers have the freedom to present their own views, with the result that Le Monde reveals no unified policies or consistent ideological outlook. Its independence, which never wavered from its founding, despite early and grave financial worries, has brought it denunciation at one time or another from every part of the French political spectrum.
