What about political correctness these days
Armin Wolf on political correctness: "Social media messed up the debate"
The Munich Media Days ended this year with a debate on political correctness. ”As part of the panel discussion,“ ZiB 2 ”moderator Armin Wolf gave a lecture entitled:“ Democratic discourse is not a safe space ”.
The debate that "you shouldn't say anything these days" has "become ridiculously obsolete", explained Wolf. But just because everyone who has Internet access also has the opportunity to "pop their opinion on the Internet", the debate on freedom of expression is not over.
Wolf quoted media professor Bernd Pörksen and praised his book "Die große Iriztheit". Nowadays, "many of us seem to find it increasingly difficult to deal with other opinions," said Wolf, and then complained that social media had "spoiled the debate". Without the correction of an editorial team, everyone could spread their indignation, without the rule "Engage brain before typing!" to be observed.
Decency instead of censorship
The good old "decency" falls by the wayside, because racist and insulting expressions, for example, should prohibit decency and not insistence on political correctness.
The ORF presenter sees "alienation in front of the audience" as a major problem area. How do you use serious journalism to reach people who "like" populist politics and politicians, who don't question "fake news" and who get their information from "filter bubbles" - these questions led to the panel discussion. Subsequently, Gesa Mayr, editor-in-chief at "Watson" Germany, the outgoing "Spiegel" editor-in-chief Klaus Brinkbäumer and Julia Bönisch, editor-in-chief of sz.de, debated where the boundaries between political correctness and the right to freedom of expression run.
