Emission “Hello the land ones!” of September 23rd, 2017: answer to the plaintiffs

Publication date: Friday, February 23, 2018
Plenary assembly of January 24th, 2018

The CSA was seized about a diffused sequence on September 23rd, 2017 in the emission Hello the Land ones! on C8, during which a chronicler reassembled the dress of one of the guests on the thighs of the latter. 

Under the terms of article 3-1 of the law n° 86-1067 of September 30th, 1986, the Council ensures: “ the respect of the women's rights in the field of the audio-visual communication. For this purpose, it takes care, on the one hand, with a right representation of the women and men in the programs of the departments of communication audio-visual and, on the other hand, with the image of the women who appears in these programs, in particular while fighting against the stereotypes, the prejudices sexists, the degrading images, the violences made to the women and the violences made within the couples. […] ». 

Even if it understands the reactions which this gesture near certain televiewers could cause, the CSA, by examining the sequence, took into account on the one hand, the obviously humorous and provocative context of the emission and on the other hand, the declaration of the guest minimizing the range of this gesture. He considered, in the species, that such circumstances did not justify a measurement of warning near the chain. 

The Council answered in this direction the plaintiffs, while them ensuring that it will be particularly attentive so that the respect of the women's rights is ensured in the whole of the televised programs of the chain.
