Libération on Hollande: 'So far, so bad'

French papers this Friday are critical of President François Hollande's performance in his Thursday evening prime-time TV interview. He gets panned in the left-wing paper Libération for being an 'optimist addict' and in the right-wing Le Figaro for insisting on a new 75 percent tax band for those earning over a million euros. One paper, though, does say there are five reasons to be cheerful.
