Big tackles! For many years now, news presenters have been accustomed to receiving candidates for the next presidential election. However, for this year’s election, it seems that journalists are not always behind their files. In any case, this is what many Internet users seem to assume. Proof of this is the criticism of Gilles Bouleau when he received Éric Zemmour on TF1 last November. The latter does not hesitate to also criticize, and even insult, the presenter of the first channel.
And Internet users seem to have once again been disappointed with the new interview with a presidential candidate. This took place on Saturday January 15 on France 2. Laurent Delahousse received Christiane Taubira who had just, a few hours earlier, officially announced her candidacy. As soon as the politician arrived, the journalist threw at her: “A few weeks ago you said you didn’t want to add confusion to the confusion, are you really sure tonight that you are not adding to it?”. He began by referring to the fact that this announcement came late and that it could weaken the left because of the multitude of candidates. “There is no confusion, there is total clarity. We are all convinced that the left’s only chance is unity. […] The only contradiction is to proclaim that the union is necessary, which each candidate does, and to stay each in his lane. I say very clearly that I recognize the rules of the popular Primary and that I recognize in advance the result of the Primary”, she defended herself before criticizing Laurent Delahousse for not questioning her about her program and her ideas, subjects that interest the French much more.
A regret shared by many Internet users who did not hesitate to shout their anger on Twitter. “A revolting interview, so much Delahousse spent his time accumulating Madame Taubira, at no time could she talk about her program, shame on you!, regretted one of them, somewhat upset by the turn the interview had taken. While another did not hesitate to violently tackle the journalist: “Delahousse odious, aggressive, arrogant, contemptuous, condescending, false… pathetic journalism, incriminating show, without any ethics… Total shame”. “An aberration the interview of Mrs. Taubira on #France2tv Laurent Delahousse who spent his time interrupting her, he does not listen, does not allow the development of ideas, is aggressive…. So unpleasant!”, reproached another.
Delahousse is much more complacent when it comes to interviewing Macron. #Taubira2022 #taubira — ificouldturn (@plaplepliplopou) January 15, 2022
