The former director of opinion studies Stéphane Rozès presented for RT France his analysis of the recent decision of the CSA concerning the counting of the televised interventions of the editorialist Eric Zemmour “relating to the national political debate”.
“We are in a gray area, we do not know very well whether Eric Zemmour will go or not [à la présidentielle]. The CSA is an independent body which must judge in law and the only criterion is: Eric Zemmour he said “I am a presidential candidate”? He did not do it […]. It is not the role of the CSA to decide on this gray area ”, estimated this September 10 the political scientist Stéphane Rozès on the antenna of RT France.
He was referring to the recent decision of the French audiovisual regulatory authority to count the television interventions of the editorialist and polemicist Eric Zemmour, “relating to the national political debate”. A choice which, according to Stéphane Rozès, carries the risk of “passing Eric Zemmour as a victim of two weights, two measures”.
“The CSA weakens its legitimacy in a perception of opinion with regard to the media where one has the feeling that they depend on economic interests but also on political power”, also pointed out this former director of studies opinions while admitting not to understand the decision in question of the CSA.
