Anne-Sophie Lapix returns to the interview that upset Edouard Philippe

Anne-Sophie Lapix is ​​not about to forget her interview of March 17, 2020, the day after the announcement of the first confinement. Indeed, the journalist from France 2 received in duplex from Matignon the former Prime Minister Edouard Philippe, in order to discuss the measures aimed at combating the Covid-19 pandemic. Known for her pugnacity, Anne-Sophie Lapix had not gone through four paths when questioning the politician: “Did we not fall behind by wanting to maintain the first round of the Municipalities at all costs?” A question that Edouard Philippe did not appreciate at all. Ulcerated, the latter would have even dropped in off: “If she had been in front of me, I would have put my hand in her face”according to information from Télérama magazine.

On the viewer side, it wasn’t much better. The viewers had notably criticized the presenter for her smile during the interview. Consequence: Anne-Sophie Lapix had decided to close her Twitter account, in the face of the onslaught of criticism. “I received a torrent of dung on social networks (…) Under these conditions, it is complicated to cut off your interlocutor. We feel a little stuck, specifies the presenter of the 20 Hours. With the sound shift, it’s never an easy exercise, neither for one nor for the other”she confided to the Parisian.

This Sunday, July 10, it is once again it is in the columns of Parisian that the journalist returned to this sequence: “ This interview cost me a little dear (…) A lot of people took it badly, believing that it was not the right tone. In my defense, I had no feedback, so I couldn’t see myself. Maybe I would do this interview differently today, but I would ask the same questions “estimated the journalist, and to specify:” You can more or less appreciate my tone. But I try to make it more neutral, to erase the irony and even the smile. At 20 hours, it does not pass “.
