The malaise was palpable on the France 2 set on Sunday June 12, 2022. And for good reason, while Laurent Delahousse hosted a program dedicated to the results of the first round of the legislative elections, the latter received Laure Lavalette, candidate for the National Rally in the Var… And the least we can say is that the latter was not afraid to say what she thought….
A heated exchange
“I’m going to ask you a question: what is this media overexposure of Jean-Luc Mélenchon due to? », indeed launched the candidate to the journalist, before continuing in the same accusing tone: “You must have seen the same figures as me on Arcom, we know that there is an overexposure of Mélenchon”she said, referring to information disclosed by the Regulatory Authority for Audiovisual and Digital Communication (Arcom).
Accusations that obviously did not please Laurent Delahousse who immediately retorted: “Ooh la la, are you telling us that the media campaigned for Jean-Luc Mélenchon? » A question that did not destabilize the RN candidate who answered: “Yes, I think Jean-Luc Mélenchon was a media darling. But you know, it’s something that is very well verified. For a time, Zemmour was the darling of the media and it even rose to 14% when it finished at 7%.
