Liberation is the name of a French daily newspaper. It's is nominally on the left, but you wouldn't know it from reading it. Today for instance its headline runs. 'Sarkozy our saviour'. Now when I saw it one French24 this morning, like the presenter, I thought "Hmm irony - bit early for that but irony all the same." But no. In fact it seems that the paper has bought into the idea that Sarko is tacking to the left and that, anyway, the socialist party would have done and said pretty much the same thing. The journal is backing Sarko.

It comes to something when the only 'left' paper, remaining (poor old Humanité) looks dangerously left wing in comparison to it erstwhile competitor on the left scene.
