Diffusion of a song devoted to the attacks in Turkey in the emission “If you listenings, I cancel all”: intervention at Radio France

Publication date: Thursday, July 13, 2017
Plenary assembly of May 31st, 2017

The CSA was seized about the diffusion, on January 6th, 2017 on France Inter, of a song of Mr. Frédéric Fromet within the emission If you listenings, I cancel all.  The song “In Reina of Istanbul” in the night of December 31st, 2016 had as an aim the attack which has occurred in Turkey and had as an ambition to underline the media treatment difference between the attacks according to the country in which they are perpetrated. 

After examination of the litigious sequence, the Council considered that the diffusion of this sequence, in spite of the humorous kind to which it is attached, carried out little time after the attack which has occurred in Turkey, had legitimately been able to run up against the victims, their close relations or the public.

The CSA thus asked the persons in charge of the radio to show a particular vigilance in the humorous treatment of the news when this one refers to particularly dramatic events.
