While the news was very intense in June with the announcement of the early legislative elections, CNews achieved a 3.5% audience share (PDA), compared to 3.4% for BFMTV. LCI comes third among the news channels with 2% and the public channel - last with 1%. CNews marks its “historic monthly record”, she said in a press release. In May, it achieved an audience share of 2.8%, compared to 2.7% for BFMTV. CNews is boycotted by many left-wing personalities who accuse it of being positioned on the extreme right, which it disputes.

“A mirror of society”

Two of his former columnists, Pierre Gentillet and Guillaume Bigot, are RN candidates in the legislative elections. In the first round on Sunday, they came out on top in their constituency, Mr. Gentillet with more than 43% in Cher and Mr. Bigot with nearly 38% in Territoire de Belfort. “There are a lot of sensitivities” at CNews, Mr. Bigot assured AFP before the first round. “There is something Pavlovian about saying right – far right – Bolloré, it is much more complicated than that,” he said.

“We are a mirror of society. Our progress has been constant and has accelerated for several months,” Serge Nedjar, general director of CNews, declared in May. Like C8, which belongs to the same group, CNews is regularly called to order by the audiovisual regulator, Arcom, due to comments made on its channel.
