TV tax

We are forced to pay a TV tax in France to support public TV. I keep reading about very high salaries of the program animators. Are these animators on commercial TV stations or are they paid from the funds of our TV tax?

I read an article in some TV guide last year about the 'high salaries' of French animators and was surprised by how little they earned. The likes of Jonathan Ross etc. wouldn't bother to get out of bed for the salaries quoted of equivalent French stars.
