Yes, although I think this article misses the point of many of the grievances - when he took over, France Télévisions outsourced some of its production as well as wanting to in-house some of the team who were on freelance/recurring temporary contracts - offering them lesser pay and conditions on a permanent contract. Bignolas' arrival must have added to this but anyone in that scenario would likely have come under fire unless they were an 'original'.
It is clear that there is some kind of backlash as many of the former team who have left/been kicked out have made appearances either on Sophie Le Saint's afternoon bulletins or Nathanaël de Rincquesen's
all of whom appeared very happy to be on air again with them and somewhat nostalgic about the old days. It's a very nice moment for the viewer yet does underline that they have been exiled.
I've never quite understood the format of
, it seems to be a 3 hour-long ramble interspersed with the weather, light features and a hardcore political interview which is really out of place. Now there is the Franceinfo matinale which makes more sense to me, I watch that when in France (or the F24 French morning
, which is very good).
