Arlette Chabot

Arlette ChabotTook over as news director of France 2 after Mazerolle’s resignation. Under pressure, she screened the original raw footage for independent journalists Luc Rosenzweig, Denis Jeambar, and Daniel Leconte. While she acknowleges that it is impossible to attribute Al Dura’s death to Israeli soldiers based on the France 2 film footage, she vehemently denies that the scene was staged or that there is any need to investigate further. She defends the network and its journalists and has threatened lawsuits against those who impugn the network’s professional integrity.
