Faced with a newsroom revolt, the editor in chief of Le Monde, France’s most prominent newspaper, stepped down on Wednesday after a 14-month tenure marked by staff resistance to her efforts to push the paper faster and more fully into the digital era.  

The editor, Natalie Nougayrède, had been criticized by her staff for a top-down management style and an inability to build consensus.
