This Friday, on CNews, Jean-Marc Morandini had to cut him off.
The Paris prosecutor's office said it had opened an investigation into the former general Dominique Delawarde, signatory of the so-called "generals" platform, accused of having made anti-Semitic remarks on the news channel.
"The Paris prosecutor's office today opened an investigation into the heads of public defamation and incitement to hatred and violence on grounds of origin or membership of an ethnic group, nation, race or religion", he announced to AFP.
The investigation was entrusted to the Brigade for the repression of delinquency in persons (BRDP).
"This is the community you know well"

Morandini Live program
, the communicator Claude Posternak asked him "who controls" the "media pack" that Dominique Delawarde evoked on the air.
Retired since the mid-2010s, the general smiles: “You know who controls the media pack in the world and in France.
Who controls the
New York Times
, with us BFMTV and all the newspapers which come to group around, who are these people…?
“, Pretends to wonder the ex-soldier.
" Who ?
», Insists Claude Posternak.
“This is the community that you know well,” replies Dominique Delawarde.
"We're not going to start on that, we're going to stop my general there, I'm sorry," Jean-Marc Morandini immediately cut off.

evoking “the disintegration” of France and which had sparked a political controversy.
"We are ready to support policies which will take into consideration the safeguard of the nation", added these soldiers.
