A media ping-pong. The series opposing Jacques Cardoze, former presenter of "Complement of investigation" on France 2, to Tristan Waleckx, his successor, never ends. Invited Wednesday, September 20 in the "Buzz TV", the former editor-in-chief of the show had launched hostilities by not depriving himself of giving the substance of his thoughts on the editorial line of the program.

"It's a show that leans a little too much to one side and less to the other. At the time, I wanted to investigateJean-Luc Mélenchon, I was refused," he said. Meanwhile, the public group was quick to respond by saying that the magazine dealt with "all social issues". The current presenter of "Additional investigation" could not help but also use his right of reply by publishing Thursday, September 21 a message - more than targeted - on X, ex-Twitter.

Columnist in "Touche pas à mon poste" on C8, Jacques Cardoze was asked about this new rebound. "Every time they don't contest. I am not answered on the substance [...] they do not question at all what I said, "he laments in front of Cyril Hanouna.
In his tweet, Tristan Waleckx denies dedicating the next show to Sophia Chikirou, former communication advisor to Jean-Luc Mélenchon during the 2019 European elections. "They did Le Pen, Véran, Darmanin, Castaner... Each time, it is the personality that is portrayed. I have never yet seen that we do the communication advisor, "recalls Jacques Cardoze.
"The same mode and the same direction"
"I want to play the role of a whistleblower. I'm not going to argue every week [...] In terms of quality, I don't blame this show for anything." What the columnist deplores is the lack of multiplicity of "intellectual approaches". "They are great journalists but they all look the same. They all live in the same neighbourhoods, they all have the same education, they all come from the same origins. Everything they do is good but let's try to be a little more open."
He then adds by addressing this time Elise Lucet and her program "Cash investigation". "I find that it is still always against the bosses, against wealth, against success," he explains before continuing with advice: "They may need to think about ensuring that "Additional investigation", "Cash Investigation" and "Special Envoy" may not all be in the same mode and the same direction. "
The one who had been, according to him, forbidden to go on the channels of the Canal + group when he was still in the public group explains the relationship maintained between the two groups. "It's boycotted ... When I say that France Télévisions is 70 or 80% left-wing, it is explained by this choice, by the fact of not wanting to go into the Bolloré media."
