The controversy continues. And it now looks like a real ping-pong game between the two presenters of "Complement d'enquête", the former and the current, Jacques Cardoze and Tristan Waleckx. "A journalist of the show in custody, a former presenter who balances on his team and his methods, a number on the Puy du Fou that drives the Bolloré media crazy, it's a lot of news for the show," begins the presenter of "Quotidien".

Indeed, Jacques Cardoze, the former presenter of the investigative magazine broadcast on France 2 launched the hostilities while he was the guest of the Buzz TV. The latter did not hesitate to make "serious accusations" against his former team.

"Everything is fake, we investigate everything and everyone. We even checked in our listings, everything is freely available on the site France.TV", says Tristan Waleckx directly to close the debate. He adds that, with his teams, he and his teams have counted the number of programs and their subjects. In total, of the 62 "Supplementary Investigations" there are "only seven political portraits and of these seven there are three that concern left-wing personalities. So the four that remain are the presidential majority, the right and the extreme right."
"I can imagine some interests"
The presenter of the program then recalls - to counter the accusations of Jacques Cardoze who accused the team of not being sufficiently open - that he investigates as much on facts "of society, as the scourge of crack in Paris or pedophilia". So a question remains: what interest does Cyril Hanouna's new columnist have in attacking his former employer in this way if nothing is founded?
"Today, he no longer works for France Télévisions so I can imagine some interests.It is in "Don't touch my post", we are preparing a portrait of Cyril Hanounawho is the new boss of Jacques Cardoze [...] From what I know - I arrived in 2012 - we have no pressure internally or externally to do or not to do subjects, "says Tristan Waleckx going so far as to say that some are even jealous of the independence they enjoy.
If the 38-year-old, holder of an Albert Londres prize for his report on Bolloré in 2017, explains on the set of Yann Barthès the internal functioning of the editorial staff of "Complement of investigation" - similar to that of an SME -, he also reveals information that Jacques Cardoze had refrained from mentioning. "Until very recently, just before the summer, he sold us in quotes reports via a press agency so it's funny to see it in retrospect," laughs Tristan Waleckx.
