Plenary assembly of April 4th, 2018

The CSA was seized by many televiewers about the diffusion, on November 25th, in the 20 hour old Newspaper of France 2, of remarks of Mr. Jean-Luc Mélenchon which, according to them, would have been truncated.

Pursuant to article 35 of its specifications, France Televisions “shows rigour in the presentation and the information processing ”.

After examination of the litigious sequence, the Council noted that the sentence pronounced by Mr. Mélenchon had not been reproduced indeed in its entirety, which was suitable for denature the initial direction of them.

If it noted that, as of two days later, the chain had admitted its error and process with a corrigendum under the same conditions of programming by repeating the remarks of Mr. Mélenchon in their entirety, the CSA considered that it was about one failure to the obligation of rigour in the presentation and the data processing envisaged by article 35 of the schedule of conditions of France Televisions.

He thus consequently, asked the persons in charge of the chain to exert a particular vigilance in the future.
