The CSA asks television channels to count Eric Zemmour’s speaking time

This will not please CNews or its main figurehead, Eric Zemmour. The Superior Audiovisual Council (CSA) has decided to ask television channels to count the polemicist’s speaking time from September 9. This decision, which applies to all the channels where Eric Zemmour operates, should especially concern CNews. The Canal + news channel (Vivendi) has made Eric Zemmour the figurehead of Face à l’Info, a daily one-hour program broadcast from Monday to Friday between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

If Eric Zemmour is not officially a candidate for the presidential election, the CSA has ruled that“In view of recent developments, he could henceforth be regarded, both by his positions and his actions, and by the comments to which they give rise, as an actor in the national political debate”. The reactionary essayist has just started a tour of France in the scent of an electoral campaign to promote his new book, France has not said its last word. Its supporters are also seeking the 500 signatures from elected officials necessary for a potential candidacy. How will CNews react? The Paris Première channel should also be affected: Eric Zemmour participates in a weekly two-hour show with Eric Naulleau. But the channel was already considering its possible replacement.
