Eric Zemmour's replica

But behind the scenes, negotiations for the arrival of Eric Zemmour on the Elysée 2022 show of France 2 have advanced.

The information department of the France Télévisions group has confirmed that Eric Zemmour has been contacted to be the guest of the next political program Elysée 2022 on France 2, the date of which has not yet been decided.

And the reporter agreed.

This should end the controversy.

However, a reminder of the rules is important.

Freedom to invite

Monday morning questioned on the subject in the media program of Célyne Baït-Darcourt on the radio Franceinfo, Roch-Olivier Maistre, the president of the CSA recalled that all the media have the freedom to invite whoever they want on their antennas.

The CSA does not interfere with the editorial line of the media, it only measures the speaking time of each of the political guests.

Franceinfo is a global medium comprising both the TNT news channel, operated jointly by France Télévisions and Radio France, and the information radio station, a subsidiary of Radio France.

With regard to Radio France's antennas, it is considered that Eric Zemmour is a political fact and that he must be covered on the antennas.

Numerous contacts have been made with Eric Zemmour's team to invite the journalist to one of the branches of the France Inter, Franceinfo or France Bleu group.

And this, even if he is not yet officially a candidate for the presidential election.

Speaking time measurement

Once invited to a public service program, the question arises of the measurement of Eric Zemmour's speaking time.

On September 9, 2021, the CSA asked all the media to count the speaking time of Eric Zemmour on their antennas in the time reserved for the various right-wing group, whether or not he is a candidate for the presidential election.

For this count, the CSA distinguishes two periods:

Outside the election period

, the rule is that of one third of the speaking time for the executive (President of the Republic on remarks relating to the national political debate and the government) and two thirds for all the existing political parties of LREM, Modem, LR, PS, PCF, rebellious France, Europe Ecology The Greens… Up to all the small parties including Agir, Debout la France, Générations-S, Libres !, Public square …… The speaking time allocated to each party is estimated on the results of the previous elections weighted by the polls and the dynamics specific to the political personality.

Political figures who are not members of a party such as Éric Zemmour and Marion Maréchal are classified in various right and Arnaud Montebourg who is classified in various left.

During an election period.

CSA is preparing to publish the rules applicable by the media for the presidential election.

They will apply to the media from January 1, 2022. The principle is to achieve equality of speaking time for each of the presidential candidates two weeks before the first round of the election.
