The polemisten in “C’est pas tous les jours dimanche” should be especially cassante statements flushing, as appears from the history of Emmanuelle Praet. “If I think it will be a sterile right and wrong-debate will be, only I prefer’, says Mia Doornaert.

Scripted his discussion is still not – otherwise it was RTL not, of course, cases about the pronunciation of Emmanuelle Praet last Sunday. But the format of the duidingsprogramma C’est pas tous les jours dimanche is many people find quite surprising. On a central table interviews Christophe Deborsu people about the events of the week; to the left of him are four polemistes that respond to their statements.

Polemisten and opinion leaders are all in the corner of what in the English language so beautifully pundits : people who are often asked to on tv about a topic to talk. But a polemicist has a different role than a opiniemaker. C’est pas tous les jours dimanche has three fixed polemisten: Praet was supposed to be MR signature, while Alain Raviart, on the line of the CDH and Michel Henrion and that of the PS. Their responses are short and preferably as sharp as possible. Because the guests at the central table together to an up tempo changings, the program has the feel of a duel by some as controversial possible sound bites. The seventh day is in comparison civilized, even stricken in age.

After a piece about the quite out of hand protests of the yellow shirts in Charleroi, asked Deborsu Praet last Sunday to leave a comment. They pointed out that the riots in the society a lot of money would be cost, and added: “I want you to remember that Ecolo in the last elections have also grown. And that all the taxes that you pay milieutaksen. So think of anyway after the next election.’ Ecolo-president Zakia Khattabi protested, RTL said that the Praet out of her role as “cases,” and suspended her. Yesterday, the partnership was permanently discontinued.

Puppet

The word ‘role’ in this context always returns, yields the image of an actor who is a character created plays. Praet used that image in an interview with La dernière heure. After her suspension, she remained a few days away on social media. “It gave me the chance to think about what I want to do and what I will no longer be accepted. I’m almost ten years the puppet of RTL. I wondered what I could teach in a debate if my ideas can’t express.’

She adds that she is every Saturday and Sunday morning there is a ‘blokte’ to be well prepared for the broadcast. Between the rules should be read that they such preparation rarely fully able to use.

Ongerepeteerd

Mia Doornaert is both in C’est pas tous les jours dimanche has been a guest, as in a number of duidingsprogramma of the VRT. ‘At the VRT, no one has ever me in advance and asked what I was going to say. Someone of the editors will call you to ask you to the broadcast wants to participate. They tell you what topics to offer, and who the other participants will be. Possibly they have background about the documents that they will show. As I am about a subject is not enough to know, I’m not on the invitation. That’s what I do, not as I think it will be a sterile right and wrong-debate will be. But again: there is in advance not gone through what you will say. There is no corner indicated that you are going to speak.’

It remains a balancing act. The editors of The Appointment choose its participants, such as the editors of The Standard Opinion, her contributions are looking for: in the hope that different views are discussed. Doornaert himself speaks of a ‘different lighting’. “You can, for example, agree with one other guest in the programme on the fight against climate change, but disagree about the role of nuclear energy,” she says. “In a good debate-can you be a argumentation to develop. That is what concerns me the intention, not each other with cries to blows.’
