Medienanalyse, Dezember, viertes Quartal, Jahr 2015: Wie häufig kamen die Parteien im öffentlichen Rundfunk zu Wort?

English summary: Each month WuG presents a media analysis answering the question how often German parties, represented in the national parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany, Deutsche Bundestag, are being interviewed by German public broadcasting. This in our view is decisive for a democratic formation of opinion. The high imbalances we found out so far resulted already in a case at the broadcasting commission. The final answer of this commission which we received is not at all convincing. On the contrary, the letter of the chairman of the broadcasting commission poses new questions. Against this background we found out in a further analysis that according to our information more than one third of the membership of the broadcasting commission is active in a political party and had or have a certain political rank in it, among them the chairman and the deputy chairman of the broadcasting commission. This contrasts with a judgment of the Federal Constitutional Court as we have outlined in the same article. Moreover, whereas the parties CDU, CSU, SPD, Bündnis 90/Die Grünen are represented in the broadcasting commission the left party “Die Linke” is not. One regular result of our analysis is that the public radio station Deutschlandfunk interviews politicians of the left party far less than those of the other parties represented in the national parliament. However, it is less important which party is strikingly underrepresented in public-broadcasting, but rather that one party is strikingly underrepresented at all – for years. The answers of the broadcasting commission have been so far completely ignorant. It seems they can afford it. So the only way it seems would be that the politicians of the underrepresented party, in this case “Die Linke”, starts complaining and develop legislative alternatives and even thinks about making another case at the Federal Constitutional Court. Here is our regular monthly analysis, the results for the thrid quarter and the whole year 2015, which shows that the subject has not lost urgency.

Auch im Jahr 2016 setzen wir unsere monatliche Medienanalyse fort. Nach der unbefriedigenden Antwort des Hörfunkrats auf unsere Programmbeschwerde im vergangenen Jahr haben wir begonnen, die Zusammensetzung des Hörfunkrats selbst zu untersuchen (siehe zum Ergebnis hier). Die Antworten des Hörfunkrats zeugen bisher von kompletter Ignoranz. Es scheint, als könnte er sich das leisten. Der einzig gangbare Weg, etwas zu verändern, wäre wohl, wenn Politiker der unterrepräsentierten Partei, in diesem Fall “Die Linke”, beginnen, sich zu beschweren, entsprechende gesetzliche Veränderungen anzustreben und sogar über einen Gang nach Karlsruhe nachzudenken. Hier sind die Ergebnisse unserer monatlichen Medienanalyse für den Monat Dezember 2015, ergänzt um die für das vierte Quartal und für das Jahr 2015. Sie zeigen, dass der Gegenstand nicht an Dringlichkeit verloren hat…Medienanalyse, Dezember, viertes Quartal, Jahr 2015: Wie häufig kamen die Parteien im öffentlichen Rundfunk zu Wort?
