Can you still say that? And may one still ask that, if one may say that? Many media worry these days about the freedom of expression. In the media podcast we talk about it. Plus: an interview with US reporter legend Tom Brokaw.

NAlmost all of the major opinion-forming media have written cover stories about freedom of expression in recent weeks. From WELT AM SONNTAG to “Spiegel”, “Süddeutsche Zeitung” to “Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung” and “Zeit”. The stories ask if they still exist, the freedom of expression – and if so, in what condition?

In the podcast “The Media Week” we talk about it. And ask us what this emphasis says about the media itself. A storm in a glass of water, the search for attention, or justified concern for a high good, which is creeping devalued?

Tom Brokaw on the fall of the Berlin Wall

In the interview, the legendary American television presenter and reporter Tom Brokaw talks about November 9, 1989. At that time, the NBC journalist was in Berlin and reported on the fall of the Berlin Wall. Brokaw remembers u.a. to the legendary press conference of Günter Schabowski – and he talks about the role of social media and its impact on journalism.
