Test of “asylum” in Fort Boyard: France Televisions warning statement

Publication date: Monday, September 11, 2017
Plenary assembly of September 6th, 2017

The CSA was seized about a sequence entitled “asylum” diffused on France 2 in the emission Strong Boyard of June 24th, 2017.

Under the terms of article 36 of its specifications, France Televisions “ takes care of the her dignity and respect for human dignity. It contributes, through its programs and its information processing and of the societies' problem, to the fight against discriminations and exclusions of all kinds “.

While raising that the litigious test had been famous “the upholstered cell” and had been the object of a new work of assembly the week following the first diffusion, the Council regretted the diffusion of such a test in this family and emblematic emission of the public service. It estimated that the sequence in question, caricatural and stigmatizing with regard to the people suffering from psychiatric disorders or psychic, undermined the above mentioned provisions of the specifications of France Televisions. Consequently, the Council asked the officials of France Televisions to take care of better respecting, in the future, its obligations as regards respect of the rights and freedoms and warned them against the renewal of such practices.
