Editor of 'Le Figaro' and later of the satirical magazine 'La Lanterne' which lampooned Napoleon III and supported the Paris Commune. Exiled 1873 to New Caledonia but escaped. Became professional politician but switched from extreme left to extreme right and supported the abortive coup of Gemeral Boulanger, resulting in a further (voluntary) exile. Later became an extreme anti-Dreyfusard.
