What is more, the lying hounds at the heart of our national news organisation are already deeply distrusted over the cover-ups of migrant crimes, particularly sex crimes by Pakistani men. They are not alone. As Der Spiegel reports
Siegfried Vollmert, 57, is the purchasing and sales director of a steel company in Essen. He travels a lot, driving 80,000 kilometers (49,710 miles) a year through Europe. He no longer believes what the papers write, he says, adding that he prefers to see things for himself. "There must be a reason why the media are losing circulation," Vollmert says. "The average Joe has a keen sense for when he's being taken for a ride." Vollmert accuses the media of having lost sight of the interests and concerns of its audience. The teacher shortage, poor hygiene in hospitals and a growing number of burglaries -- journalists ignore all of these issues, says Vollmert, because they have blockaded themselves in their ivory towers. "They don't listen to what's happening down below."
Philipp Karger, a 33-year-old engineer, hardly gets any of his news from classic media anymore. "It's obvious that you get your information from above," he says, citing coverage of the New Year's violence in Cologne as evidence. The fact that the media took so long to report on the ethnic background of the presumed perpetrators was the result of instructions from the federal government, or at least an organization affiliated with the government, says Karger. He is so sure of himself that he reacts with genuine surprise when his accusation is rejected. "I thought that had already been officially confirmed," he says. According to Karger, the media had to respond as they did so as not to undermine Merkel's refugee policy.As the people of Europe are waking up to the fact that you really can't believe what you read on the newspapers - or hear from the BBC - a million more economic migrants are tearing at the southern fences. No doubt the guilty hacks at the BBC who are now so happily compliant in suppressing all negative aspects of economic migration will squeal in future that they lied about it because they were 'scared'. Sorry, no defence.
