PPDA affair: France Télévisions ousts the journalist from its magazine “Une Maison, un Artiste”

His recognizable stamp will no longer resonate on the antennas of France Télévisions. According to our information, the public group has decided that from now on the collection of documentaries “A House, an Artist” will do without the voice of Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, who attended this meeting in 2011, three years after his expulsion from the 20 Hours of TF1 . It is a new personality who will comment on the new series of new episodes scheduled for this summer on France 5.

France Télévisions is thus responding to the Patrick Poivre d’Arvor affair, which is losing its last media attention there. Since an initial rape charge filed by author Florence Porcel, 26 other women have testified to sexual assault in court. 16 of them filed a complaint, including 8 for rape. PPDA categorically denies all charges against her and attacked the plaintiffs on defamatory charges.

The day after the publication by France 2 of the magazine “Complément d’Enquête” dedicated to the fall of PPDA, the association MeTooMédias, founded by several of the women who testified, had challenged the management of the public group: “It is important and touching for us to see that our stories have been heard on France Télé. As far as we know, the man we accuse is also still at the head of a program that is still broadcast on the same group. It is a problem, not? “.

For 11 years, “A House, an Artist” has shown viewers a designer’s residence every summer. Last season, Patrick Poivre d’Arvor, who is never physically seen in these documentaries, sometimes made by his daughter Dorothée, visited places dear to Michel Legrand, Jean d’Ormesson, Rosa Bonheur, Gustave Caillebotte, Azzedine Alaia or Pierre Cardin. The song on Jean Gabin’s La Pichonnière stud farm in Orne was watched by 620,000 viewers.

France Télévisions is not the only one who knew the voice of Patrick Poivre d’Arvor. The electronic music group Bon Entendeur has removed from the Spotify platform and from their YouTube channel the title “Entrevue Optimist”, from their first album “Aller-retour”, which consists of a long monologue by the former journalist of TF1 in which he defends “the French genius”.
