ESC United Mod Team
- February 10, 2021
Good news! Frances National finals have become one if my personal highlights in the NF-Season if not THE highlight.C'est vous qui décidez will be back to choose next year's French representative. So it's highly likely that Stéphane and Laurence will also be back as hosts (and the commentary team for France)

Just randomly remembered that dude :
Having him doing Eurovision would be iconic
what is this sorcery
Plus i have some worries about one thing : if you didn't know, french government are planning to cancel public television royalty fee even starting this very summer, making the french public broadcaster under the surveillance of the state only. FTV's editorial staff already did some strikes, fearing pressure from the government for their freedom of speech and potential cuts in the budget. I don't know how that would translate to ESC but it doesn't smell good anyway.
You're exagerating a bit, I think. there are some countries in Europe like Poland or Italy where "extreme right" has an even bigger place and they didn't withdrew. Plus, Macron's party and also the traditional right party voted for the cancellation. And most ov the NUPES allaince (extreme left alliance) didn't even vote or were. Anyway I'm still curious to see where France Televisions will find the money.Little update about this : royalty fee has been cancelled, voted by the politic majority, helped by extreme right-wing who starts to take a frightening big place here. Dark days ahead for french public broadcaster, since that royalty fee helped the broadcaster to keep its financial and redactional independance.
As i told earlier, don't know exactly how that would translate to ESC but the future does look quite grim... For example, there should be cuts in the budget. Another example : there are people saying that secretly, Macron would like to privatize FTV.
Or, for another example, we all know here that Macron likes ESC (he even sent messages to Stéphane Bern during Pravi's 2nd place), so maybe we have no worries for the moment... But, imagine that in five years, extreme right-wing reaches the Elysée (which would be likely to happen sadly, this country keeps on disappointing me each day), i'm quite sure they would totally like France to get off the ESC, then we would be in a Hungary-like situation.
I must admit that I didn't read that, indeed, have you a link for that part, please ?Lol, nupes (the left alliance, against the vote) is only 1/3 of the parliament. 2/3 are far-right, right or right-centrist, who voted for.
You probably missed the RN députée saying that "a great democracy doesn't need a public broadcasting service" or all the online attacks by the far-right against eurovision, drag race or culturebox for having tv shows and series which show gay people.
I must admit that I didn't read that, indeed, have you a link for that part, please ?
Ok, thank you.
L'Assemblée nationale vote la suppression de la redevance audiovisuelle | LCP - Assemblée nationaleLes députés ont approuvé la suppression de la redevance audiovisuelle publique, ce samedi 23 juillet, par 170 voix contre 57. Les élus ont également affecté à l'audiovisuel public une fraction de la TVA, afin garantir son financement.lcp.fr
"Au contraire, les élus du Rassemblement national ont soutenu la suppression de la redevance, tout en regrettant que l'exécutif n'aille pas plus loin en privatisant France Télévisions et Radio France. "Une grande démocratie comme la nôtre n'a plus besoin d'un service public", a plaidé Caroline Parmentier. Plus tard, Alexandre Loubet a fustigé des médias publics coupables, selon lui, d'avoir "discriminé" le RN au cours de la campagne des élections législatives, et d'avoir contribué au bon score de la Nupes, au mépris de leur devoir de neutralité."
