Al Jazeera English - Focus - Journalism and 'the words of power'

Power and the media are not just about cosy relationships between journalists and political leaders, between editors and presidents. They are not just about the parasitic-osmotic relationship between supposedly honourable reporters and the nexus of power that runs between White House and state department and Pentagon, between Downing Street and the foreign office and the ministry of defence. In the western context, power and the media is about words - and the use of words.

Ich möchte hier einige Passagen der Antwort kommentieren: Uns wäre es sehr wichtig gewesen, Ihnen unsere Gründe für den gefundenen Kompromiss zum Kinderpornografiebekämpfungsgesetz persönlich zu erläutern. Womit er sowohl zugibt, dass es nichts mehr zu ändern gab (sonst würde er nicht nur erläutern wollen) aber nicht realisiert, dass wohl der gesamte AK Zensur die Übertragung aus dem Parlament gesehen hat und insofern seine “Erklärung” ohnehin bei uns angekommen ist.
