The conviction of Nicolas Sarkozy in the wiretapping affair, the rape accusation against Patrick Poivre d'Arvor and the revelations about his behavior with his female colleagues, the new information on the incredible escape of Carlos Ghosn … The news at the end of February and the beginning of March 2021 was rich in twists and turns and many media have covered these topics. But on Wednesday March 3, 2021, it is obviously on the channels of the TF1 group that we had to connect if we wanted to have the freshest news. Indeed, the former President of the Republic, who recently had to justify himself on his early vaccination against Covid-19, was the guest of the 20 Hours Journal by Gilles Bouleau. On TMC, in the show Daily, Yann Barthès received Patrick Poivre d'Arvor. LCI, the continuous news channel of the TF1 group, finally offered an interview with the former boss of Renault conducted by David Pujadas. A programming that has caused a lot of reaction on social networks, Internet users are surprised by the presence of these three powerful men, but nevertheless targeted by the courts, on the air.
Irony, mockery and even dismay: Twitter is in turmoil
"Sarkozy on TF1 and PPDA at Quotidien. The cancel culture has struck again", wrote one internet user while another commented: "Do you say that tonight there will be Carlos Ghosn on LCI, followed at 8 p.m. by Nicolas Sarkozy on TF1 and that the next day, you will be able to see Isabelle Balkany on C8. We will soon find more major delinquents in prime time on French television? than in Fleury-Mérogis ". Ironic comments that flourished on Twitter and made Internet users laugh, some even mocking the famous slogan of the TF1 channel, "Let's share positive waves". Remember that, despite the surprise and annoyance of Internet users, the three men remain presumed innocent (Nicolas Sarkozy having announced his intention to appeal).
