On Press Freedom

“Seit die Massenmedien – Zeitungen, Radio, Fernsehen und Internet – zunehmend in privaten, zum Teil multinationalen Konzernen zusammengefaßt sind, wächst die Gefahr, daß die öffentliche Meinung und damit die wählenden Bürger in einseitiger, den jeweiligen Zwecken der Konzerne dienender Weise manipuliert werden.”

(Helmut Schmidt in “Außer Dienst”, Bundeskanzler in Deutschland & Herausgeber der ZEIT)

“Since the mass media – newspapers, radio, television and the internet – are more and more integrated into private, partly multinational corporations, the danger increases that the public opinion and the voting citizens get manipulated in a onesided way which serves the corresponding purposes of these corporations.”

(Helmut Schmidt in “Außer Dienst”, German Chancellor & editor of DIE ZEIT)
