Invited on the Touche Pas à Mon Poste set this Monday, September 13, Christine Kelly said she was very touched by the ousting of Eric Zemmour from CNews.
This is news that surprised but not that much when it fell on September 13, 2021. The channel CNews announced that she was putting an end to her collaboration with Éric Zemmour.
Good that the decision was taken by mutual agreement, however, it has something to surprise. Because for two years, the polemicist has been one of the major assets of Canal+ and its interventions enabled the group to achieve some audience records on the TNT.

But we had to comply with the rules of CSA. The audiovisual regulatory authority decided on September 8 to count down speaking time granted to one who is lent presidential ambitions as a political candidate.
Christine Kelly upset
Guest on the set of Do not touch My TV this Monday, September 13, Christine Kelly reacted to the eviction of her colleague. After explaining that it would have been “materially impossible” for the news channel to keep Eric Zemmour, the presenter of Facing the info confessed thatshe deeply regretted this decision :
I am in mourning.
She said on the set of Cyril Hanouna.
It must be said that for two years, Eric Zemmour and Christine Kelly formed a duo of shock and have become very close. The former member of the CSA sometimes even had to come to the aid of the editorialist, some of whose remarks resulted in him being taken to court.
Beyond the end of a professional relationship, Christine Kelly is all the more affected as she considers that this decision was put in place “especially for him”:
Legally, the CSA made a decision and if they had truly considered him a candidate, there would have been a deliberation.
If we follow Christine Kelly’s reasoning, other PAF personalities would normally also have had their speaking time counted down. So, would Eric Zemmour have been targeted?
A tough decision to take
According to Christine Kelly, Eric Naulleau’s former friend had to pack up immediately. And this, without having been able to say goodbye to his loyal audience:
It was very difficult for him. He tried to find a solution to the end, but materially it was impossible.

However, his departure from CNews will not prevent Éric Zemmour from speaking. Via a video broadcast in TPMP, he invited his fans to join him on his channel YouTube.
Now, what will Eric Zemmour’s projects be? Actively prepare your campaign? Because although he has not confirmed anything, many want to believe that the 63-year-old would be ready to embark on the presidential race of 2022.
