Le Monde is reacting to the book as a political attack and is filing suit for defamation.
Le Monde, a newspaper where I have many friends, has established ties with Le Nouvel Observateur, at the bidding of their president and ours—ties that suit Le Monde but which worry our editors.
Neither Serge Dassault, targeted by Le Monde’s editors as the villain because he’s from a rival clan (Dassault controls Le Figaro and L’Express), nor Jean-Luc Lagardère (who wasn’t alerted to what was going on at Fayard, part of his Hachette publishing house) had anything to do with the Péan-Cohen bombshell.

Le monde and figaro sales figures are down 12-15%(i don't even bother to count the copies they "give" for free to airliners, counting them as sales), and le monde plans to fire 100 personnel.

 RSF - Letters of protest - Guinea - February 14 2001
Aboubacar Sakho, editor of the weekly "Le Nouvel Observateur", was condemned on 14 February 2001 to ten months in jail and a fine of one million Guinean francs, for an article criticising decisions of the ministry of justice.
He was released yesterday (14 March 2001) and all the proceedings have been abandonned, after many Guinean journalists had called for mobilization against this imprisonment.
Justice Minister Abou Camara had lodged a complaint against Sakho after Le Nouvel Observateur published an article on 15 January criticising the minister's decision to relieve certain magistrates of their duties.

Le Nouvel Observateur, in fact, like all journals, sells the reprint rights of its articles or interviews abroad.
She wrote that whereas Derrida "would have wished" ("aurait souhaité") that his permission be asked concerning the translation—a courtesy, she said, that was forgotten by Le Nouvel Observateur as well as by Wolin—she nonetheless could guarantee Wolin that there would be no further consequences ("cette affaire n'aurait pas d'autre suite").
