The “Tagesspiegel” insinuates in an article that the news portal “NachDenkseiten” is “right-wing”. Editor-in-Chief Berger responded to the open defamation. The fight against independent journalism in Germany reaches a new level.
on the NachThinkPages takes editor-in-chief Jens Berger to an article by the daily mirror Position. In this one the NachThinkPages-Editorial assumes to relativize and promote right-wing populist developments. The reason for this is an e-mail exchange between the editors and a former employee who was encouraged to correct the text. Several email exchanges were dem daily mirror leaked.
Correspondence between an editor and a correspondent about a contribution intended for publication is a completely everyday process daily mirror tries to imbue with a meaning that it doesn’t have.
To get to the result NachThinkPages are “legally open”, the author of the article in the daily mirrorMatthias Meisner, an ideologically charged vocabulary, speaks with regard to new formats and news offers in the network of parallel media, discriminates against those who criticize the measures as “corona trivializers” and thereby insinuates that reporting that tries to differentiate is right-wing.
The process is symptomatic of the German media landscape. New formats that fill the gap left by the established media by abandoning their journalistic mandate to report critical of the government are defamed and discredited by the same established media. German journalism is increasingly becoming the enemy of freedom of the press and freedom of expression, he says daily mirror-Post significantly.
This is particularly impressive in the defamation of Florian Warweg, a former employee of RT DEwho to the NachThinkPages changed. Meisner calls this change “remarkable”, without being more specific about what he means by that. However, it is implied that an employee of RT DE shouldn’t find employment with any other media company, otherwise it’s just “remarkable”. A journalist demands a de facto professional ban for a colleague.
Already before that NachThinkPages, which are mainly financed by donations, have withdrawn their charitable status. The ongoing media campaign against the NachThinkPages again suggests that diverse reporting is not only not desired in Germany, but should be actively suppressed.
