“When we try to find out if there has been consent, a form of reciprocity, we immediately fall on you,” said Alain Finkielkraut on LCI. David Pujadas then reminded him that the facts were committed on “a child of 14 years”. “So what?” Replied the essayist and academician. First, we’re talking about a teenager, it’s not the same thing. And to specify the crime, it is necessary to know whether there was consent or not. Each time you want to make a distinction it appears as an absolution, each time you seek specificity, you are accused more or less of complicity in a crime. “
“Fallen from the clouds”
“When I was told that I was fired, I was amazed,” responded Alain. Finkielkraut to AFP. “What I’m saying is open to criticism, perhaps, at times. But what I say is irreproachable (…) I am fired like a mess, he says. We stop my column, and move around we do not discuss. I find that very unfair, but unfortunately very revealing of a time when it is in the press that the worst enemies of freedom of thought are recruited. “
And to conclude: “I will think about it, at least see if there is a way out on the labor tribunal side (…) I do not know at all what the nature of the contract I signed with LCI is, I do not I don’t understand much about all of these things, but I’ll think about it. “
In its press release, LCI “recalls that it makes the debate of ideas, argued and respectful, a priority of its editorial line. On a daily basis, LCI strives to put current events into perspective through the eyes of guests with multiple opinions and multiple sensibilities. “A precaution in order to avoid, no doubt, to be accused of hindering freedom of expression but that it does not want to give blank check to the propagation of the” culture of rape “.
