TPMP: did Cyril Hanouna’s show really favor Éric Zemmour during the presidential election?

This Wednesday, November 9, Claire Sécail, researcher at the CNRS, revealed the results of her study on the distribution of speaking time in the program Touche pas à mon poste (TPMP) during the presidential election campaign.

Here “we can say everything” and “we invite everyone”. This Thursday, November 10, after violent son clash with the deputy Louis Boyard, Cyril Hanouna considered that this sequence was proof of the freedom of expression enjoyed by the guests and columnists of TPMP.

This sequence with @LouisBoyard is proof that on #TPMP we can say everything, and invite everyone. If even the deputies want to make a buzz now…Where are we going? Go take a chamomile my Louis and go buy yourself a suit! \u2764\ufe0f

An assertion, moreover, hammered out by the host throughout his invective with the LFI deputy, when the latter reproached him for “raising racism in France” and for having “made money on Zemmour”.

Zemmour ubiquitous in TPMP during the campaign

Accusations that echo the results of studies published by Claire Sécail, researcher at the CNRS, on the place granted by TPMP to the far right before the presidential election.

on first analysis on the pre-campaign published in autumn 2021 had demonstrated the overmediatization of Éric Zemmour. Yet not yet declared a candidate, the latter occupied 44.7% of the political airtime of the show.

The researcher also criticized TPMP for installing a “bipolar vision” of the ballot between Éric Zemmour and Emmanuel Macron, by making the other political forces invisible.

This trend was confirmed as the first round of the presidential election approached. This Wednesday, November 9, Claire Sécail shared the second part of his studyrelating to the weeks leading up to the election. According to the latter, “the framework for regulating pluralism during the electoral campaign had almost no no corrective effect on the disparities” previously observed.

A manifest insincerity reproached to the chain

Emmanuel Macron (31%) and Éric Zemmour (29.7%) continued to monopolize airtime in the home stretch of the campaign, during the period when the channels had to respect equal speaking time.

At the same time, other candidates, including Jean-Luc Mélenchon (3.2%), were subject to “particularly disadvantageous treatment”she believes.

Not as invisible as Jean-Luc Mélenchon but much less highlighted than Éric Zemmour, Marine Le Pen saw her airtime increase as the first round approached, rising from 7.1% in the fall of 2021, to 16.8% during the last days of the campaign.

“If the broadcaster has absorbed and smoothed out the strong disparities maintained by TPMP on its time slot, C8 has shown a manifest insincerity by not respecting the criterion of ‘comparable programming conditions'”, she concluded, questioning Arcom, the French audiovisual policeman, on “the concrete methods of controlling pluralism”.

The results show :
\u25aa\ufe0fa persistent rogue pluralism in TPMP (quantitatively and qualitatively)
\u25a\ufe0fl the insincerity of the broadcaster in its application of pluralism
\u25a\ufe0fl inability of Arcom to concretely defend the notion of “comparable programming conditions”
