Doublespeak Orwell would be ‘proud’ of on premier German State news program
by Sally Ross
Found at Gates of Vienna: Tagesschau is the premier German State TV news program. It is broadcast at 8pm when people tend to be home from work, assuming they are not in the black economy and working all hours even with the “need to import migrants to do jobs Germans won’t.” Until 1990 or so there was no commercial TV in Germany, so this news program still retains enormous national credibility – and like the BBC, there are millions of citizens who rely on it for their information. For older US news watchers think CBS and Walter Cronkite. That is the status of this program.
Last week a news program was presented. It featured Caren Miosga, the presenter, and Andreas Zick, who leads an organization called the Institute for Interdisciplinary Conflict- and Violence-Research (IKG). It was a blatant propaganda piece about the murder of a 15-year-old girl named Mia, who was stabbed to death in the town of Kandel by an Afghan immigrant named Abdul. The TV segment was obviously intended to obfuscate the plain facts of what happened and direct public opinion towards politically correct conclusions.

Just so you get an idea of the kind of Doublespeak being deployed, here also courtesy of GoV, is a handy ‘cheat sheet’ translation into English of the original German phrasing used by Tagesschau to lead viewers away from rational conclusions about this killing. See above.
