Criticism

TF1 is criticized for pandering to the "lowest common denominator": emphasis on non-informative "news", anecdotes, TV games and shows; some calling it "Trash TV". In 2004 Patrick Le Lay, CEO of TF1 made the following statement: A WNYW-TV full screen segment intro from 2005. ...

"There are many ways to speak about TV, but in a business perspective, let's be realistic: at the basis, TF1's job is helping Coca-Cola, for example, to sell its product. What we sell to Coca-Cola is available human brain time. Nothing is more difficult than obtaining this availability. This is where permanent change is located. We must always look out for popular programs, follow trends, surf on tendencies, in a context in which information is speeding up, getting manifold and trivialized." [1] The wave shape (known as the dynamic ribbon device) present on all Coca-Cola cans throughout the world derives from the contour of the original Coca-Cola bottles. ...

Critics of TF1 also contend that its news coverage is slanted towards supporting right-wing politicians — they were in particular accused of supporting Édouard Balladur in the 1995 presidential elections, and of overstating crime during the 2002 electoral campaign to tilt the balance in favour of former French president Jacques Chirac, who campaigned on law-strengthening proposals. Immigration and violence are still amalgamated in most of the channel's news programmes. Heads and famous journalists of TF1 are close friends to some of the most powerful politicians in France. TF1 allegedly gives them a hand before elections — Nicolas Sarkozy (current president of France) is a frequent guest of the channel — and expects from them a more liberal legislation on media matters, if not a bonus for Bouygues when a public contract must be signed. In politics, right-wing, the political right, or simply the right, are terms which refer, with no particular precision, to the segment of the political spectrum in opposition to left-wing politics. ... The Politics series Politics Portal This box:      A politician is an individual who is a formally recognized and active member of a government, or a person who influences the way a society is governed through an understanding of political power and group dynamics. ... Édouard Balladur (born 2 May 1929) is a French right-wing politician. ... Second Round First Round See also: President of France, France, Politics of France Categories: Elections in France | 1995 elections ... The 2002 French presidential election consisted of a first round election on 21 April 2002, and a runoff election between the top two candidates (Jacques Chirac and Jean-Marie Le Pen) on 5 May 2002. ... Jacques René Chirac (born 29 November 1932) is a French politician and a former President of France. ... Nicolas Sarkozy (IPA: —  ), (born Nicolas Paul Stéphane Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa on 28 January 1955 in Paris, France) is the current President of France and ex officio Co-prince of Andorra. ... Bouygues (Euronext: EN) is a French industrial group listed on Euronext Paris. ...


In addition, it is occasionally alleged that news reports from TF1 tend to ignore issues yielding a bad light on their parent group (Bouygues), while stressing problems of competitors (such as VINCI). VINCI (Euronext: DG) is a French construction company, formerly called Société Générale dEnterprises. ...


As of 2005/2006, average ratings range from 30-35%. Programs shown on the network are more likely to be taken off the air if these figures are not met.


Such criticism is heavy in the satirical show Les Guignols de l'info, broadcast on rival private network Canal Plus. However, TF1 now competes in this category with M6, which was initially a generalist channel focusing on musical programmes, but now has programming more resembling TF1 (notably, reality shows that TF1 started running just after M6 introduced them). PPD (modeled on Patrick Poivre dArvor) is the resident news anchor of the guignols. ... The title of this article is incorrect due to technical limitations. ... Métropole 6, known popularly as simply M6, is a French television service owned by a company called Métropole Télévision. ...

Ce que nous vendons à Coca-Cola, c'est du temps de cerveau humain disponible. Rien n’est plus difficile que d’obtenir cette disponibilité. C’est là que se trouve le changement permanent. Il faut chercher en permanence les programmes qui marchent, suivre les modes, surfer sur les tendances, dans un contexte où l’information s’accélère, se multiplie et se banalise.

TF1 se lance dans la téléphonie mobile (505 words)
TF1 Mobile repose donc sur une alliance dans laquelle le groupe audiovisuel fournit la marque et les services multimédias, tandis que Bouygues Telecom gère les services techniques (réseau, communications) et commerciaux (facturation, gestion des abonnements clients qui "appartiennent" à Bouygues Telecom).
Au-delà, TF1 Mobile apparaît comme un rapprochement naturel entre deux filiales du groupe Bouygues, spécialistes respectivement du contenant et du contenu.
La gamme TF1 Vidéo va remplacer en juin les deux mini forfaits actuels de Bouygues Telecom, que les abonnés actuels pourront néanmoins conserver.
