Emmanuel Macron’s campaign refused to give press passes to RT’s journalists and crew. As a result RT could not enter Macron’s victory rally.
Despite asking for full press accreditation in April, the Macron campaign did not give RT what is a standard press credential to cover major campaign events. According to RT, Emmanuel Macron’s campaign didn’t give an actual reason for denying RT’s journalists and crew passes.
Because RT never got the passes, RT’s journalists and crew had to cover the Macron victory rally from outside the hall. None of the other candidates denied RT access to their events, including Marine Le Pen who will now face Macron in the second round of elections in two weeks.
Is a national ban of RT to come in France should Macron become president?
