El ascenso meteórico de Éric Zemmour

By Jordi Bou

October 12, 2021 - El comentarista de la TV francesa Éric Zemmour, de extrema derecha, superó a Marine Le Pen recientemente en los sondeos por primera vez, lo que sugiere que él en vez de ella podría enfrentar a Emmanuel Macron en la elección presidencial 2022.

Born in Paris to Jewish Berbers who emigrated from Algeria in 1950s, Zemmour is a longtime journalist for the conservative daily Le Figaro.

He has written best-selling books on topics such as the supposed incompatibility of Islam with secular French values, immigration and the crisis of French manhood.

Zemmour attracts huge audiences on a talk-show on CNews – an increasingly popular TV channel, backed by conservative billionaire Vincent Bolloré, that critics liken to Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News in the U.S.

Twice convicted of racial or religious provocation, Zemmour is seeking to use notoriety built up on the TV channel into a presidential run and is expected to soon declare his candidacy.
