Launched in March, 2008, Mediapart is France's first fully-independent, ad-free news website, updated three times daily, seven days a week. The editor-in-chief is Edwy Plenel, former editor of the French daily Le Monde. With an editorial team of 25, Mediapart places investigative journalism at its core, with the focus on French politics, the economy and other significant issues of public interest.

Now established as one of the leading, news agenda-setting media in France, Mediapart launched its English-language service, Mediapart English,  in October 2010.

Mediapart English brings a varied selection of the site's reports, translated from French and enriched with explanatory information by experienced, professional journalists from the Anglophone press, offering an essential insight into France and French society today.

Because Mediapart carries no advertising, its revenues are from subscriptions only. You can access Mediapart English and all the rest of the site for just 1 euro for 15 days, and you can enjoy a special offer of a 12-month subscription for just 90 euros instead of the usual monthly fee of 9 euros.
