France: Faustine Bollaert slams Emmanuel Macron

His entourage urged him to keep a low profile during the early legislative election campaign. Emmanuel Macron would have none of it. According to “Le Parisien”, the president even considered speaking out in a televised interview a few days after his press conference on Wednesday, June 12. The head of state wanted to explain to the French his decision to dissolve the National Assembly and convince them to go to the polls.

According to the French daily, Macron initially wanted to organize a traditional interview with France 2 and TF1, which would have been broadcast on Sunday, June 23 at 8 p.m. The president’s team quickly dropped the idea, imagining a more original interview. The name of Faustine Bollaert then emerged. The journalist presents the show “Ça commence aujourd’hui”, which is a great success at midday on France 2.

“It wasn’t a special edition of ‘Ça commence aujourd’hui’, but a major one-on-one interview, just to crack the armor,” confided a France Télévisions executive. Contacted by an advisor to Emmanuel Macron on June 21, Faustine Bollaert declined the offer. A few minutes after hanging up, the journalist received another call. This time, it was the president calling her in person in the hope of convincing her.

The host, who did not wish to answer the questions of “Le Parisien”, warned her superiors and thought about it for a few hours, before refusing once again. “She thought that this type of interview in this context was inappropriate”, confided the anonymous source, who added that Faustine Bollaert feared that this interview “would not be well understood by her viewers”. It was finally via a letter to the French, published on Sunday, June 23, that Emmanuel Macron expressed himself.
