Online Emport: Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger criticized'cancel culture''cancel culture'

The new German than "Cancel Culture" designated emport culture in social media, which aims to make more or less well-known people’s mouth and outlock their opinions, abfill the Fruheren Federal Minister of Justice Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger.


"Controversy must be possible", Stressed the FDP politician on Monday at a debate of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom "Future of the political discourse" in Berlin. If in certain topics as the discussion at a university over the headscarf ban always "Immediately the moralizing forefinger" be unpacked and it is one "Shitstorm also of colleagues" Haile, according to the board member of the Foundation, there is a risk that views are massively understood. Many wanted to prevent, "that others intonate it differently".

"The more social media is radicalized, polarized, the sooner I have a scissor in mind", Gave Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger to consider. The language is reduced, "If you think about having no responsibility at all". The traditional media therefore had to dare, an online emportshaft about Twitter or Facebook "even go dead" allow. Over Likes often only topics were highly jazzed. Better goods there "Respect-button", To treat the handling of the network with each other.

A lot of freedom

Generally, the opinion and media freedom in Germany go "very far", Consted the lawyer. Also a pointed commentary was possible, in which sharply criticized and clear edge is shown, as long as nobody is insulted or defamed. Has danger "very targeted disinformation", As it is currently about opponents of the Corona Mabs "to the Qanon movement" widespread.

In uncertain times, strained myths and positions partly had the potential to get caught with manners. So konne the impression arises, the above "Do not take our interests right true". If the confidence in state institutions is massively damaged until in justice, you can contribute to this, "The sucks of our democracy" To undermine, warn Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger. In this country, the company does not see the company in such a situation. But it could be different in the USA, where Prasident Donald Trump’s journalists have exploring his favorite opponents and himself "Fakes against facts" Job.

In special cases, however, the confidence of state action was lost in this country, the liberals meant. If racism in chat groups grass in individual police rides, affected people were allowed to convince themselves three times whether they should contact the order routes. The Burger had to be sure how the criminal crushers moved with such aspects.

Keyboard warrior

Sometimes you have to "Twitter Twitter", Also included the manager of N-TV, Tanit Koch. Like Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger she baught the "Excitation culture in social media" skeptical, although the ex-editor-in-chief of the "image"-Newspaper itself have experiences with the abobined public debates allowed.

Facebook Co. generated "Keyboard warrior", which started out from home from home with sands that they have never been to the face to third parties. Other opinions were no longer accepted at all. The traditional media had to concentrate so that they were believed. The negative prere from press freedom could not have such a slight game to fascinate others with their lugs.

More control

Social media also made the reporting transparent. It is not that easy to rub quotes from the context. Journalists were committed much more to account. In the classic editors, Koch sometimes sometimes one "Imbalance", as reported on scandals. Corresponding decisions went partly "past the interests of the wide population", so that these other media turn to. It is therefore necessary "Rough burger competence", while "a little less suffisan" often more goods. Who about doubt login to Corona restrictions, this may also be able to do so, without being immediately offset as a conspiration theorist.

Used emorungshafts

The long-term turkey correspondent of the "world"-Group, Deniz Yucel, recalled that too "Classic boulevard" of emport waves live. He find this mesh as well as the supposedly new Cancel Culture "annoying". On the other hand, however, some institutions are missing on certain sovereignty, with excitement and criticism. The German Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) For example, with your back and forth, a commentary of the cabaret artist Dieter Nuhr to the network campaign "Together #FurdasWissen" treasure.

A completely different feature as in this country the journalist, who spent because of research in Kurdistan 367 days without charge in Turkische fehrnisse, social media in authority states. Where the freedom of expression is due to state censorship, social networks played their strong as a lung pipe of the opposition. The Turkish Prasident Recep Tayyip Erdogan has therefore referred to Twitter as a plague. In this country, the freedom of information is also imprisoned even if newspapers had no subscribers and could not hold on water.
