A parody of Pascal Praud’s show

Sébastien Thoen, who in addition to his role as a columnist also hosted the “Journal du hard”, was fired at the end of November from the channel after having participated in a sketch which parodied the program of Pascal Praud on CNews, “L’Heure des pros” .

On Wednesday, the director of antennas and programs of Canal +, Gérald-Brice Viret, had confirmed this dismissal, justified according to him because the columnist had appeared in this sketch with a person who “Constantly denigrates” the chain teams and had “Legitimized” his words, an allusion to the comedian Julien Cazarre.

The Canal + and CNews channels both belong to the Canal + group, whose parent company, Vivendi, is controlled by Vincent Bolloré.
