The research behind the Stasi file Friedrich
| Reading time: 2 minutes
After the hope for a new start for the Berlin publishing house follows the shock: Publisher Holger Friedrich reported as IM to the Stasi. In the podcast, the authors talk about how to classify the file and what the find means for the publisher.
Drama for the “Berliner Zeitung”: Last Friday, WELT AM SONNTAG published that the new owner of the publishing house, Holger Friedrich, was active during his army time as an IM for the Stasi. The activity was relatively short-lived, but led to a series of reports with information and others. about other NVA soldiers.
In this issue of the “Media Week” we talk about the file and the case – and the consequences for the Berlin publishing house. Uwe Müller, editor at the Investigative Department of WELT, explains in an interview how he assesses the file and why the find hits the “Berliner Zeitung” twice as hard. We also clarify the files in which the media can access the Stasi documentation authority.
In addition, in this “media week”: As the AfD politician Alice Weidel insults after the deselection of Stephan Brandner journalists. Why ProSiebenSat.1 is planning an audio portal called “For Your Ears Only”. How Disney lays a record start with its new streaming offer. Why the planned index model for the calculation of broadcasting income does not come first.
The “Media Week” is a podcast about the world of the media and its makers. Christian Meier, editor of the WELT, and Stefan Winterbauer, editor of the industry service Meedia, always talk on Fridays about the most important topics of the week. Subtle, analytical, entertaining.
