    French poll. While the media, Macron and other state leaders hype Biden, everyone else (regular Joes) do not share the same enthusiasm. For those who don’t read French, it says: Should Trump recognize his defeat?

    "By the start of World War II, Le Figaro had become France's leading newspaper. After the war, it became the voice of the upper middle class, and continues to maintain a conservative position.

    In 1975, Le Figaro was bought by Robert Hersant's Socpresse. In 1999, the Carlyle Group obtained a 40% stake in the paper, which it later sold in March 2002. Since March 2004, Le Figaro has been controlled by Serge Dassault,[9] a conservative businessman and politician best known for running the aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation, which he inherited from his father, its founder, Marcel Dassault (1892–1986). Dassault owns 80% of the paper, by way of its media subsidiary Groupe Figaro.[9]

    In 2006, Le Figaro was banned in Egypt and Tunisia for publishing articles allegedly insulting Islam.[18][19]"

    Why did you stop at 2006 loool. Keep going. Here let me finish your copy pasta from Wiki:
    “Le Figaro has traditionally held a conservativeeditorial stance, becoming the voice of the French upper and middle classes.[8] More recently, the newspaper's political stance has become more centrist”

    read the last word. I don’t care about Le Figaro from 2006. The one I read is from 2020. And it’s highly critical of left and right stance. Have you even read one?

    And this :
    Mougeotte publicly replied: "Our editorial line pleases our readers as it is, it works. I don't see why I should change it. [...] We are a right-wing newspaper and we express it clearly, by the way. Our readers know it, our journalists too. There's nothing new to that!"

    Fake news. Mougeotte hasn’t worked for Figaro for almost a decade now. Dude we’re in 2020.

    It's still owned by Dassault. The idea of it being "Centrist" is laughable.
