The decision was taken after the controversial words of the philosopher around the Duhamel affair.
Five months and then leaves. LCI will stop its collaboration with Alain Finkielkraut, recruited last September as a columnist, as revealed by Télérama. The news channel of the TF1 group made this decision on Tuesday morning, after controversial comments made in David Pujadas show. Monday January 11, Alain Finkielkraut returns to the Duhamel affair. In “La Familia grande” (Seuil), the lawyer Camille Kouchner recounts the incestuous attacks that her father-in-law, political scientist Olivier Duhamel, would have imposed on his twin brother when he was a teenager in the late 1980s.
Faced with David Pujadas, Alain Finkielkraut unequivocally condemns the behavior of Duhamel, who committed “A wrongdoing. What he did is very serious, it is inexcusable ”. But, denouncing ” a victim society At the same time he ventures into questionable reasoning. “Was there consent? At what age did it start? When we try to find out if there was consent or a form of reciprocity, we immediately come across you ”, says the columnist. Facing him, David Pujadas specifies that “it is because we are talking about a 14 year old child». «So what? answers the philosopher. First, we’re talking about a teenager, it’s not the same thing. And in addition, to specify the crime, it is necessary to know whether there was consent or not».
LCI management felt that such comments had no place on the air. And she decided to stop in the wake of the weekly chronicle of the philosopher. Alain Finkielkraut debated once a week in “24H Pujadas”.
