Germany’s media regulator has revised its code of conduct on reporting whether crime suspects belong to an ethnic or religious minority after complaints the previous guidance was unclear.
Breitbart (h/t Dallas B) The German Press Council – a voluntary, industry-run body – says information about a person’s ethnicity shouldn’t be published “unless there is a justified public interest in doing so.” The wording agreed Wednesday replaces previous guidance that said such details should only be published if there was a link between a person’s ethnicity or religion and the crime.
Numerous German media outlets complained that the old code was hard to interpret during a breaking news situation. They argued that withholding such information left readers searching for it on questionable social media sites and stirred conspiracy theories of media cover-ups of migrant crimes.
From now on, headlines like the ones below will be forbidden in Germany, I guess. What’s next, censoring names if they sound Muslim?
