    Free Georg Thiel! 


    As disgust with BBC bias fuels the campaign to defund UK Pravda..

    ..

    .H

    ..

    ..we read about a middle-aged German, who has ‘become an unlikely cause celebre‘ in his homeland.

    i****Georg Thiel has been in prison since the end of February

    Georg Thiel
    ..

    Georg Thiel, aged 54, has been sentenced to imprisonment for six months.

    Hmm..

    So what heinous crime did Herr Thiel commit?

    ‘…refusing to pay the country’s television license fee.’

    Like millions of Brits, there must be millions of Germans who loathe the bias of Deutsche Welle.

    We have, in the past, looked at Germany’s network of state and regional media that leeches off the public purse…..

    .

    ..

    ..and spews forth shockingly biased propaganda….

    DW Quadriga ‘Debate’ – A Mere Anti-AfD Insult-Fest! 

    …even more notorious since that infamous leftist sow owned up to her readiness to flout her duty as a journalist to tell the truth.

    .

    ….as we have also noted previously.

    But the more we looked into this, the more unsavoury the story got, not least the jackboot antics…

    .

    ..

    …of a  talk-show host on another part of the network, WDR, the mouthy Jürgen Domian, who professes to welcome any caller on any topic…

    .

    .

    …but suddenly went into full-censor mode and rudely cut off a citizen who dared raise the issue of the draconian treatment of this man.

    NB

    The prisoner. ..

    .

    .

    (who had to go on hunger strike to get to make a phone call, for pity’s sakes!)

    …is not on our blog’s political wave-length.

    He says he’s leftwing.

    But he’s rational –  he ‘does not see why he should pay the same license fee with his annual income of 14,000 euros as the WDR boss Tom Buhrow with his annual salary of 400,000 euros.’

    And his simple common-sense plea may strike a sympathetic chord in the hearts of many UK readers:

    ARD and ZDF should concentrate on the news – leave expensive events to the private sector.. “

      That’s a rotten way to treat this man.
      I never understand why state radio and tv even exist in democracies.
      Dictatorships need them but in the West?
      Most of them are unimpressive, too.

    In Mama’s Reich, Dissent Censored By Lügenpresse! 


    Congratulations to the German patriot party, the AfD, on a valuable victory over the state Lügenpresse – lying media – this month, with a court order prohibiting it from referring to the AfD as an extremist party.

    Even the DW headline, please note, has omitted the usual smear-words ‘far-right’ and now refers to them as ‘rightwing populists.’

    So good luck to their spokesman Jorg Meuthen, who’s suggested further legal action against the notorious state media bias.

    • “It’s difficult to get issues across if they’re not communicated in the publicly financed media,” Meuthen said. “We’re considering right now whether or not to sue to appear on the talk shows. A lawsuit is possible.”

    • We’ve noticed – hard not to notice -the gross bias before.

    • 0000000000000000

    • Many a shocking example we’ve shown you before, the media clique pandering to the ruling class’s calls for crack-down on dissent.

    • AfD Verbot – SWR Goebbels-Clones Face Rising Protest! 

    • Hitler’s SPD Heirs – ‘Media Must Gag Critics of Crimmigration!’ 

    • Herr Meuthen revealed the sheer magnitude of the deliberate in-crowd censorship.

    …in the first quarter of 2017 only four AfD representatives had been invited to appear on Germany’s four biggest political talk shows on the public broadcasters ARD and ZDF…”That’s only 2.5 percent!” 

    Again, we should not be surprised, given the shameless prejudice exemplified by the ARD, such as when it ignored the murder of a young German woman by a savage.

    National broadcaster ARD provoked outrage by initially ignoring the story…

    oooooooooo

    And don’t forget that vicious leftist we’ve mentioned before!

    • The editor-in-chief defended her decision to suppress the rape story on public TV broadcaster ZDF: “We don’t want to inflame the situation and spread the bad mood.”   http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/6501/migration-crisis-germany
    • 0000000000
    • With breath-taking disregard for facts, the media creeps deny their guilt, denying even that fair play must be an iron-clad criterion for deciding who gets in front of the cameras.

    • “The editorial staffs of the shows themselves decide which guests they want to invite to which shows,” ARD editor-in-chief told Focus. “There are no quotas involved in the selection.
    • 00000000000
    • Even though they’re mainly financed by mandatory monthly contributions of 17.50 euros ($20) from every German household, and the law requires political neutrality, media attorney Tim Hoesmann told Deutsche Welle. “And from my perspective I don’t think this lawsuit would have much of a chance of success because there’s no right to participate in the talk-show format.”

    • =

    • In Mama Stasi’s Reich, says Hoesmann, these ‘talk-shows’ are  free to decide who they wanted to invite as guests.

    • oooooooooooo

    DW Quadriga ‘Debate’ – A Mere Anti-AfD Insult-Fest! 

    • So why pretend to be neutral –  just admit the bias !

    oooooooooooo

    What’s needed is root-and-branch reform -as AfD’s manifesto for this year’s big election demands.

    …mandatory contributions to public broadcasters to be abolished in favor of a pay-as-you go system that would apply only to those who actually watch the broadcasters’ programming.

    It also wants to see the members of the supervising committees that oversee the broadcaster directly elected by voters.

    That would be a huge step forward!

    As DW anxiously shrills…

    If they were to become reality, such suggestions would transform Germany’s media landscape beyond recognition. 

    Right-wing populist AfD may sue to get on talk shows

    JAWOHL!

    NOT BEFORE TIME!
