Populist talk-shows fuel rise of far right, German TV bosses told

The head of Germany’s most powerful cultural body has called for the plug to be pulled on the nation’s multitude of political talkshows for a year, arguing that their populist agenda has helped fuel the rise of the far right.

Olaf Zimmermann, who heads the German cultural council, an umbrella group for organisations from art galleries to television companies, said public broadcasters needed to step back and rethink a format that has helped cement gloom-ridden public attitudes towards refugees and Islam, and propelled the into parliament at last September’s election.

“I’d suggest for them, take a break for a year ... though the length of the intermission isn’t the decisive factor. What is crucial is that they return with new talkshow concepts and try to come up with more suitable contents with regards to social cohesion in our society,” Zimmermann said, arguing that the public broadcasters ARD and ZDF were obsessed with refugee-related issues, often framing them negatively.

Er, this is something NEW to me, quoting the Guardian, ......, .... :lol: , ... :box:

Amazing. I wouldn't believe this myself had I not read, gasp, the Guardian. The German "far" left-wing is trying to shut-down talk-shows. You just can't make this stuff up. Can you say, ...."Nazi?" Joseph Goebbels would be proud. .... :cheers:

Yes a surprising and ridiculous development - I agree, but Nazis, Mozzie, Nazis???

When they start gassing people and burning their bodies in mass crematoriums after having harvested their hair and gold teeth, then, yes Nazis would be a suitable definition.

An ill-advised attempt at a quasi-dictatorial control of the state media, perhaps, yes, but Nazis???

You really are a drama queen sometimes, my old misguided mate.

I dunno, Hugh. Here in the uS, we've kind of gotten used to people calling our President a Nazi for doing things like *helping* te Jews... or for ordering well-done steak with ketchup.

Our major media would support banning Trump from using Twitter or other social media....His ability to speak freely , without being filtered through their New World Order cultural censorship, is cutting into their previous cartel................ :shakeshead:

Yeah, well if he wants to be a rapper, the way to go on Twitter, but if you are the President of The United States, you are expected to have a little more style - anybody can Tweet, but only the PoTUS has the such an array of communication choices.

But hey, you wanted Coco the Clown, so what the hell... let the Twat Tweet.

The major media is hell bent on making Trump look like a fool....He was smart enough not to fall into their trap...FDR had the same problem with newspapers ...He bypassed them with "fireside chats" and won the hearts and minds of voters............ :nana:
