Highlights: Gérald Darmanin announces police protection of Ruth Elkrief. Minister of the Interior says Jean-Luc Mélenchon's tweet put "a target on the back" of the journalist. "This is what the irresponsible behavior of France insoumise produces," concludes the minister. The method and tone used by the LFI leader have sparked a wave of protests within the journalistic profession as well as among the political class. "We are in a democracy, journalists do what they want and question politicians as they want," says Darman in an interview with Apolline de Malherbe.


According to the Minister of the Interior, the particularly hostile tweet of the far-left leader had the effect of putting "a target on the back" of the LCI journalist.


"Ruth Elkrief. Manipulative. If Muslims are not insulted, this fanatic will be indignant. (...) Elkrief reduces all political life to his contempt for Muslims. On Sunday, Jean-Luc Mélenchon published this message on the social network X to criticize the interview of MP Manuel Bompard by the LCI journalist. The method and tone used by the LFI leader have sparked a wave of protests within the journalistic profession as well as among the political class. According to Gérald Darmanin, a guest of Apolline de Malherbe on Monday morning, Jean-Luc Mélenchon "puts a target on Mrs. Elkrief's back."

During the same interview, the Minister of the Interior announced that he had placed the woman who was for a long time an emblematic face of BFMTV under police protection. "We are in a democracy, journalists do what they want and question politicians as they want. I decided, this morning, to hand over police protection to your colleague," Gérald Darmanin announced. Ruth Elkrief would therefore have already been the subject of such a device in the past. "This is what the irresponsible behavior of France Insoumise produces," concludes the minister.
