This video from Greece says about itself:
REPLY TO THE GERMAN MAGAZINE FOCUS AND NEWSPAPER BILD
Bild is part of the Axel Springer media empire.
4 March 2010
This video is the answer to the German magazine Focus, and other media and newspapers in Germany for the ridiculous publications against Greece at the time when Greece and the Greek people have been in critical condition.
In the 1960s, a hate campaign by the media of far Right German media baron Axel Caesar Springer, especially their flagship daily Bild, brought student activist Rudi Dutschke to the attention of Springer press reader Josef Erwin Bachmann. To Bachmann (coincidentally, the same family name as the Fuehrer of the present racist Pegida organisation), Dutschke was a “dirty communist pig”. On April 11, 1968, Bachmann tried to murder Dutschke, firing his gun at him. Dutschke did not die immediately; he died in 1979, after eleven horrible years with a damaged brain.
Now that Dutschke is dead, the Springer corporate media empire is aiming at new targets. Like Greeks.
Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
Trade union: Bild, stop anti-Greek campaign
The largest newspaper in Germany has called on readers to make a selfie with the newspaper of this morning. On its front page is in extremely big letters: “NEIN, Keine weiteren Milliarden für die gierigen Griechen!!”, meaning, “No, no more billions for the greedy Greeks!”
These billions of German and other countries’ taxpayers’ money go mainly to big banks, not to the Greek people. While the austerity imposed for that money ruins the lives of millions of Greeks who have not caused the big banks‘ financial crisis.
“One may approve or reject the German government’s policies on Greece”, says the union, “but trying with a political campaign to influence directly is contrary to the descriptive task of journalism.”
The union also says it is ethically problematic to blame a whole people for the financial missteps of its leaders.
Bild tries with its campaign to influence tomorrow’s vote in the Bundestag, the German parliament. People expect a large majority will agree to an extension of aid to Greece, though some forty members of the government parties will vote against.
