French news channel iTélé strikes over controversial presenter

Jean-Marc Morandini has been hired by French rolling news channel iTélé, seeing 85% of its journalists down tools. Morandini is facing charges of sexual harassment of underage boys during castings for a reality TV show that subsequently never went to air. So far, the charges remain just that with no proof of their veracity, but with iTélé undergoing a major change in strategy, journalists for the channel fear Morandini is a symptom of a plan to "dumb down" content.
