Managing emotions so that “the journalist takes precedence over the human being”, this is how Frank Melloul sums up his job since the attack of October 7 and the war in Gaza that followed. He is the CEO of i24News, the only international news channel broadcast from Israel in French, English and Arabic since 2013 – with an audience of 10 million viewers in the United States, 5 million in the Gulf and 3 .5 million in France – and which in Switzerland can be described as right-wing in its French-speaking version. The former diplomat came to Geneva during a promotional tour for the channel. A return to his roots for this local child who grew up in Fribourg, did his recruit school in Moudon and his gymnasium in Lausanne.

Le Temps: i24News claims to support Israel throughout by providing balanced information. Isn’t that contradictory?
