Emission “7 days in the world” (BFM Business) of April 22nd, 2017: answer to the plaintiffs

Publication date: Monday, September 11, 2017
Plenary assembly of July 19th, 2017

The CSA was seized about the diffusion, on April 22nd, 2017 in the emission 7 days in the world on BFM Business, of a sequence during which a speaker considered the assumption of the assassination of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Article 2-2-1 of the convention of BFM Business provides that “ the editor is responsible for the contents of the emissions which it diffuses. It preserves in all circumstances the control of its antenna “.

The Council understood the sharp emotion that these remarks, lending to controversy, had been able to cause. It however raised that the journalist had immediately stopped his guest and had condemned his remarks, and that the speaker had thereafter taken the care to specify his matter.

Under these conditions, the CSA did not belong to failure of the chain to his obligations as regards respect to the rights and freedoms.
