Journalists from the troubled French daily newspaper Libération are finding life after print. (At the IHT we have chronicled the iconic newspaper’s problems numerous times.)
Pierre Haski, a longtime and respected Beijing correspondent for Liberation, last week launched a news site called Rue89 and has already gained traction with a scoop about French first lady Cecilia Sarkozy not voting for her husband.
According to Rue89, the original story scheduled for publication in the Journal du Dimanche was suppressed by the owner, a friend of Sarkozy.
