Just like their Arab-language counterparts, the French-language media in Lebanon are currently facing significant financial problems and an ageing readership. Nevertheless, the French-language press is highly valued by many in Lebanon who retain an attachment towards France and the French language. It has always been seen as a bastion of freedom, promoting the values of tolerance and openness towards others.
