If he travels through many TV shows since the rumors about his possible presidential candidacy, Eric Zemmour has so far never been invited to the France Info set.
During an exchange between the elected Communist Ian Brossat and the political journalist of France Televisions Gilles Bornstein in the program “Your political guest”, on France Info, this absence was justified, thus raising a controversy.
While discussing the potential candidacy of Eric Zemmour in the presidential election of 2022, the journalist indicated that Eric Zemmour “was not allowed to come here”.

He said that Mr Zemmour will “of course” be invited to France Télé, but only once he has formalized his candidacy for the election.
