21 January 2016 | The role of RTS and journalist Yves Steiner denounced by an investigation in the German-language press

In a lengthy investigation, Weltwoche reveals the dubious actions and complicity of Yves Steiner, an RTS journalist who has since gone into the service of the Swiss Confederation, in the cyber-attack that allegedly targeted two journalists in French-speaking Switzerland in March 2014. The most troubling aspect of this case is that Yves Steiner is at both the front and the back of the line. [...]

21 January 2016 | Massive media dysfunction on the back of Dominique Giroud

L’affaire pourrait faire rire si elle n’était pas consternante. Elle illustre de manière éclatante les faiblesses d’un certain journalisme pratiqué en Suisse romande. Surtout, elle prouve une fois de plus que certains journalistes abandonnent toute retenue quand il s’agit d’enfoncer et de ridiculiser Dominique Giroud et ses sociétés. Seul problème en l’occurrence: ces journalistes se […]

13 January 2015 | All this for nothing? The Cogest report gives birth to a mouse

"L'Etat du Valais a presque tout fait juste" (ATS). "A report spares the State of Valais" (24 Heures). "Good report for the State of Valais" (La Liberté). "Report favourable to the State of Valais" (L'Agefi). "Le ministre Tornay disculpé" (Le Temps). Similar headlines appeared in the German and Ticino press. The Walliser Bote devoted [...]

24 December 2014 | Day 20, how will the media react to the Cogest report?

Journalists like to be right. What does a journalist do when he discovers that he was wrong at 80%? They point out that they were right at 20%. That's just the way it is. Which raises a legitimate question: what's going to happen on 13 January 2015 when the Valais Grand Council's management committee (the Cogest) publishes its report [...]?

23 December 2014 | Le Temps and RTS go wild

As a reminder: Dominique Giroud made a tax error. He has acknowledged this error. He said it was unacceptable. He has publicly expressed his regrets. He undertook to reimburse the amounts he had misappropriated. He was convicted by the courts. Fault-regrets-conviction-reparation. The case is closed. But not for everyone. In his [...]

14 December 2014 | There was never any Fendant in St-Saphorin (encore)

Dominique Giroud's reaction to the article in Le Matin Dimanche on 14 December 2014: On 3 December 2014, Dominique Giroud announced that, following an in-depth investigation, the courts had established that he had not tampered with his wine and that "the content of the St-Saphorin bottles complied with the applicable legislation".
