Der journalistische Analphabetismus deutscher Leitmedien: ein Fallbeispiel

27/01/2017

Am Abend des 26.01.2017 veröffentlichte die Zeit-Online Redaktion einen Artikel mit dem Titel „Führungsriege tritt geschlossen zurück“. Mit jeglichen wissenschaftlichen Standards brechend, so gab es keinen Verweis auf einen oder gar mehrere Autoren, wurde von Zeit Online (ZON) über die Tatsache berichtet, dass mehrere führende Beamte des amerikanischen Außenministeriums, des […]

Europa a più velocità – più problemi?

15/01/2016

Qualche giorno fa Sandro Gozi fu intervistato da Alberto D’Argenio (Repubblica). [1] Tema dell’intervista era il dibattito presente al livello europeo che richiede un nuovo movimento riformatorio per l’Ue per rispondere in una maniera adeguata ai problemi imminenti: (i) il tentativo di diversi membri di ritornare ad una protezione dei […]

06/01/2016

The current debate surrounding the mass exodus of people from the Middle East towards Europe results not only in a humanitarian catastrophe, a part that has been severely neglected over the past weeks in the public discourse, but also in a political stress test for the Union. While there are […]

Congratulations, Mr President?

08/11/2016

“We are doomed”, “Nobody expected this”, Trump won”. Why is it so easy to make predictions what the mainstream media is going to report on November 9th after Trump wins? In recent months and in recent years the appalling disconnection between the media and the people has become clearer than […]

Not a victory for “honest people”, but also federalists

24/06/2016

“L’Angleterre, ce n’est plus grand chose” Wise words. Wise words, indeed. When Charles de Gaulle presented his views on the grandeur of the UK back in 1963 he tried to prevent the UK from entering into an abusive relationship. One that would last over 40 years and seems to come […]

Bargaining sovereignty

23/05/2016

Is the European Union one of the many conspiracies aimed at the unification of this heterogeneous continent under one, in this case the commission’s, rule? Just as Hitler and Napoleon tried to do?

Who to Support in the Syrian Civil War?

26/11/2015

The downing of a Russian aircraft over Turkish or Syrian territory on Tuesday by Turkish F-16s seems to complicate the already highly complex situation in the Syrian civil war. What most media seemed to focus on was whether the Russian planes (two Su-24 bombers engaging ground targets in Syria) did […]

Freedom of movement for all*

12/10/2015

One of the core principles of the Union is, and always has been, the positive right of freedom of one own’s movement through every single member state of the European Union. Closely tied to economic policy, as most of Europe’s social policy is, freedom of movement managed to become one […]
