Book review: The Changeling makes baby photos, trust in Internet disappear

Book review: The Changeling makes baby photos, trust in Internet disappear

Bundestagswahlkampf: Nach rechts verschoben

Die Fragen im TV-Duell und im Wahl-O-Mat zeigen, wie sehr sich die Debatte über Migranten verändert hat. Sie werden vorwiegend als Schmarotzer und Kriminelle gesehen.

Für viele Beobachter des TV-Duells war klar: Als Gewinner gehen weder Amtsinhaberin Angela Merkel noch Kanzlerkandidat Martin Schulz hervor, sondern die AfD. Auf Twitter klingt das etwa so: “Die AfD fragt, die große Koalition antwortet”. Ein anderer Nutzer schreibt: “Seit 35 Minuten Flüchtlinge, Abschiebung, Islam. Im Moment gewinnt eine andere Partei bei diesem #TVDuell” Wieder ein anderer: “75% der Deutschen finden Bildung wichtigstes Thema. 100% der #tvduell-Journalisten fanden AfD-Themen am wichtigsten.” Continue To Post...
