Reprimand

Before the breakout of war, the French government was hardly gung-ho over having to fight in the Gulf. But wimps they’re not. So Defense Minister Jean-Pierre Chevenement got steamed when popular TF1 chat show host Christophe Dechavanne invited a uniformed soldier to appear on “Ciel Mon Mardi,” only to boldly declare himself to be against the war, adding that he would not fight. Chevenement was so mad that he asked the president of the broadcast regulatory body CSA, Jacques Boutet, to impose “sanctions” against Dechavanne and TF1. But Boutet was then advised by the presidential palace to let the whole affair drop. Chevenement has bigger things to worry about now anyway.
