“I feel like he missed the show, refusing the match.” This is what Caroline Roux feels during the second issue of “L’Evènement” with Emmanuel Macron. At this exact moment, while the President of the Republic describes the tables and curves, and seems to refuse to discuss the reform of the pension system, the interviewer ends by saying to the President of the Republic: “At some point, I will still ask you questions!” For a journalist who specializes in political interviews, it is face to face with Head of State is one of the most complex exercises.
“If I fail, my career is over.”
In the mic of François Baudonnet, Caroline Roux asserts that her personal driving force is risk-taking. She likes to put herself at risk. Before each important performance, she often says to herself: “If I miss, my career is over.” In this episode of Comptoir de l’info, the journalist who participated in the July 14 interview admits that the fact that the Elysee chooses those who will question the President of the Republic is “shocking”. “We have to end this because it distorts the practice as much as we do,” she adds.
