Women journalists did not have an easy career in television.
Lisa Lafilm, broadcaster CTV National Newsthe news It is the latest that suddenly disappears from the screen for reasons that are still unclear. Maybe not the last. In her case, as Radio Canada did in the Pascal Nadeau case, CTV, which is owned by Bell Media, will sponsor an “independent” investigation to highlight the reasons why Karen Moses, its vice president of media, and Michael Melling, its vice president of media, terminated his contract before Two years from the expiration date.
Do you have to be a god to predict there’s a slim chance the Inquisitors will end up proving Lisa Laflame? The company hired by Radio Canada to “investigate” Pascal Nadeau’s departure preferred management and issued a report that was not made public. Pascal Nadeau could not read it. The case is now before the courts, after Pascal Nadeau has started a lawsuit against her employer. Los Julien, Radio Canada’s News Director, can now summon a file subsidiary justice to remain silent.
Can money buy peace?
Will you sue Lisa for CTV movies? An important person from Bell Media, whose name I must not mention, told me that he was offered a large sum of money to terminate his contract. Is it enough to buy peace? Right now, the five million times (these are the most recent numbers) that the video announcing her departure has been viewed should reassure her of the engagement regulars have been attaching to her on her TV news. Unfortunately, despite his popularity, his passing is likely to have little impact on watching CTV National News. This is what Bell Media management should rely on.
It was not easy for women journalists before on television. The French Radio Canada network gave them a more important position than the English network and from the private networks, and, ironically, they did not have an enviable fate.
There is still a way to go
I, who knew Judith Jasmine well and who accompanied her until her last breath, can confirm that her relations with Radio Canada were always strained, especially when she was a correspondent in Washington. He was criticized for his mental independence, not to mention his “bad spirit”, a common accusation in societies and institutions at the time. Judith, who was almost always a freelancer, ended her days modestly.
This was also the fate of the excellent journalist and presenter Adrien Lafond, who worked with her on the show Crossroads. She is also said to be an “evil spirit”. So we stopped using her services when she was 50 years old and still fully owned her college. Even if Madeleine Boleyn had moved the magazine brilliantly the point Over the course of a decade, Radio Canada decided to make a change by replacing her with Jean-François Lépine. It was in order to get a new look as well, Michele Feroli was removed from the news to be assigned to RDI with the intention of getting her present Key Reports, trivial task. Louise Arcand was 40 years old when Radio Canada suddenly kicked her off the newscast at 6 p.m. She, too, was said to be in a bad mood. That’s what Radio Canada still has to consider, as he was sentenced to pay $400,000 for unfair dismissal.
Despite temporary denunciations and shouts from viewers, female journalists have not yet been treated like men on television.
