France 24 demands withdrawal of footage in Trump campaign clip


Broadcaster France 24 on Saturday (Sept 5) demanded the withdrawal of footage from one of its reports; on a US demonstration which found its way into a Donald Trump US election campaign clip.

Marie-Christine Saragosse, director of France Medias Monde, which oversees state media; said round the clock news station France 24 had also been “shocked; to discover unauthorised use of images” from one of its reports; during recent public unrest in Minneapolis.

France 24 opposes in principle…use of its images in any partisan clip; and is outraged that moreover its images have been re-edited; and their sense twisted; seriously undermining the journalistic work of its teams; as well as its intellectual property,” said Saragosse.


She added the broadcaster was calling for the immediate pulling of the images; adding it was debating whether to take legal action if that demand was not met.
