TELEVISION – “ It’s too heavy ! Yann Barthès returned this Saturday, September 3 to his relationship with notoriety, which he considers complicated. The presenter of “Quotidien” on TMC explained that he ” might have thought a bit more » before doing this job if he had known what he was going to have to manage.

Yann Barthès notably said that he had become agoraphobic since he had become one of the most famous faces of the PAF. ” People are absolutely not rude, that’s not what I’m saying, but it’s very heavy, you have to think about it all the time and after a while, maybe it made me a little agoraphobic. I may have withdrawn, because it scares me, ”he explained at the microphone of Jade and Éric Dussart in We redo the TV on RTL.

Yann Barthès made himself known to the public on Canal+ in 2004 with “Le Petit Journal” which was originally just a simple chronicle of the “Grand Journal”. A sequence in which the journalist did not even appear on the air at first since he was content to do the voiceover. Everything changed when in 2007 the host came to present his column on the set, opposite Michel Denisot.

Yann Barthès acknowledges that as his presence on the air grew and “Le Petit Journal” evolved, his relationships with onlookers in the street changed.

“There are people who are ready to punch you in the face”

During Le Petit Journal, it was very benevolent. Even Daily, people are 99% benevolent. Except that there is also a society that has changed and there are people who are ready to punch you in the face. Especially for some time, especially since last year, it’s a little more complicated “, he explained, referring in particular to the tensions with the militants of the National Rally, a party which always prohibits access to meetings and press conferences to the teams of “Quotidien”.

The host said he had already experienced complicated situations in the street because of his political commitment against the far right and in particular Éric Zemmour, against whom the show is on trial for theft of images. ” You see how our society has been doing for some time, so there is a one in ten chance or bad luck of running into someone who thinks you are a sellout. “, he added, specifying that he had taken up Thai boxing.
