Campaign "dodo" on World Sleep Day

It's World Sleep Day and a couple of French papers lead on the need for more "dodo" (sleep time). The French who did do that wouldn't be missing much about the French presidential campaign which - today at any rate - is lacklustre. Papers had little to work with after Hollande's Thursday evening TV appearance. That's the French press review for this Friday 16th March 2012.

Le Parisien, the city paper here in Paris, and its national edition is Aujourd'hui-en-France (Today in France) marks World Sleep Day with the question: why are the French are so sleeping so badly?

The free paper 20 Minutes headlines: “From dream to reality” with a report about siestas in certain companies.

Le Monde looks at how the candidates in the French presidential race cope with the marathon on running for election.

Libération covers Francois Hollande’s appearance on French TV last night with the headline is “la relance tranquille”, saying that he is sticking with his campaign strategy despite losing ground as frontrunner in polls.

And Le Parisien also reports that Hollande is not changing anything … the paper says the Socialist stuck to recounting the general thrust of his policies without getting into detail.
