Passing on the airwaves of Europe 1 this Wednesday January 1, Elise Lucet revealed a requirement of Olivier Véran which would have deeply annoyed her.
“We do not do ministerial communication“, highlighted Elise Lucet. This Wednesday, January 12, the journalist intervened in Media Culture on Europe 1 to promote the new issue of Cash Investigation, to be found on France 2 on January 13, 2022. An episode titled Freedom, health, inequalities which tends to reveal that clinics and hospitals operate without permissions that are necessary for them. The fight of a certain Olivier Véran, even before he became Minister of Solidarity and Health. The former deputy notably made vote on an amendment in 2018 aimed at sanctioning hospitals and demanding reimbursement of operations. An amendment which has unfortunately not been applied to date. What better speaker for the facilitator?
Only problem, and as she explained to Philippe Vandel, Olivier Véran refused to confide in Elise Lucet, provided the interview is live. A way for him to give a hard time to the one who is considered the bête noire of the powerful? Anyway, this requirement had the gift of ulcerating the journalist. “I find that asking a journalist to do live when there is none on the show, It is not possible“, she shouted in Media Culture. “We asked all the ministers of all the governments. All the ministers answered us. None of them did not complain about the editing of his words. ”
Elise Lucet: “we do journalism”
For her, the demand forOlivier Véran endangers the role of any journalist. “Excuse me, but we do no ministerial communication. Yes the journalist has a decision-making eye on the assembly. This is completely normal (…) We, we do journalism, we want to inform the citizens who are in front of us “, therefore recalled Elise Lucet. And if she can understand that the minister has an overloaded schedule, especially at a time of the health crisis, she would have liked him to take “a half hour” to respond to the concerns and questions of citizens. “He could have just answered the patients. You have to stop saying that we respond to Élise Lucet“, she added.
