Pierre HaskiJournalist, L’Obs | France Speaker
Pierre Haski spent over 25 years on the editorial team at Libération, largely working on the international affairs desk. Then on 6 May 2007, the day that Nicolas Sarkozy was elected President of the French Republic, he founded Rue89. A simple coincidence? While Haski rejects the notion, the timing seems somewhat apt given the journalist’s fervent activity in defence of media independence. A complete stranger to objectivity, he recently contributed an opinion piece to L’Obs – his current place of work – stating that the election of Donald Trump was an opportunity for Europe, faced with a common enemy, to once more unite as one.
