BredowCast 52: Was Journalisten sollen und wollen

BredowCast 52: Was Journalisten sollen und wollen

A new study by the HBI examines what the German population expects from journalism and compares it with the expectations journalists have of themselves. The result: There is a broad consensus between the two groups about what journalism should achieve. The representative population survey was funded by the ZEIT Foundation. Johanna Sebauer spoke with the authors Prof. Dr. Wiebke Loosen and Dr. Sascha Hölig.

Reporting objectively, analysing and classifying events. These are the most important tasks of journalism, which both journalists and their audience in Germany agree on. However, tolerance and cultural diversity within society must also be promoted. It is also particularly important to the public that journalists make their sources transparent and explain their choice of topics.

1000 people were interviewed in a representative survey as part of this study. The results were compared with the findings of the study “Worlds of Journalism” by Hanitzsch et al., who asked German journalists about the perception of their own role. Wiebke Loosen and Sascha Hölig discuss the findings in detail in this episode of the BredowCast.
