La Presse de Tunisie, founded in 1936, is a large-circulation French-language daily newspaper published in Tunis, Tunisia. As a result of the 2010-2011 Tunisian protests, La Presse de Tunisie transformed from being seen as propaganda for Zine El Abidine Ben Ali’s government to having editorial independence from the government.

La Presse de Tunisie was founded on 12 March 1936 by Henri Smadja, a Jewish French doctor and lawyer, born in Tunisia, who went on to become the owner of the daily newspaper Combat.
