“Key not at my station”: sanctions against the C8 chain

Official statement of the Wednesday, June 7, 2017

The Superior council of audio-visual imposed today against C8 two sanctions, relating to sequences diffused in the emission Does not touch at my station, prohibiting to him to diffuse advertising sequences during this emission, as 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after his diffusion. This sanction applies to the live emissions as with their repeat broadcasts for one three weeks total duration during June. 

The first sanction relates to a sequence presented on November 3rd, 2016 during which were diffused image filmeds out of hidden camera showing one of the chroniclers victim of a show organized by the presenter-producer of the emission. During this scene, the chronicler introduced like witness of an aggression mortal made by the presenter, is summoned to show itself of the crime and appears to be informed handling only the following day, which placed it in a situation of distress and manifest vulnerability throughout all emission. The CSA estimated that by diffusing this sequence the C8 company seriously ignored its obligation to show reserve in the diffusion of images likely to humiliate the people. Consequently, first a one week sanction of prohibition of diffusion of the advertising sequences was inflicted to him.

The second sanction was marked because of a diffused sequence on December 7th, 2016 during which the presenter of the emission led a columnist, who had the closed eyes, to pose her hand on its sex. The CSA considered that this scene ignored the provisions of the law of September 30th, 1986 which give him the responsibility to fight against the stereotypes, the prejudices sexists, the degrading images and the violences made to the women, in particular in the emissions having an important impact on the young public. Consequently, a two weeks sanction of prohibition of diffusion of the advertising sequences was inflicted with the C8 chain.

The CSA, which multiplied in vain the warnings with regard to the emission Does not touch at my station, invites the C8 company to put in work from now on and without delay all the means guaranteeing the compliance with the rules fixed by the law and the stipulations of its convention, which are the counterpart of the use of the public frequency which allotted him free.
