Openness and freedom, diversity and self-determination

But we also have to ask ourselves the further question: Do we as a society want a few listed companies to have such a comprehensive, in part state-like influence on our democratic coexistence? If not, then we need a non-commercial, public space for digital communication. That is why we advocate creating a public platform for communication and media.

Their goal would not be to maximize profits, but to make high-quality content accessible and to network people socially. This platform must be organized according to different principles than commercial ones. Openness and freedom, diversity and self-determination of the individual must be the goal. In order to achieve the necessary size at all, to develop charisma and to be able to build a counterweight, the new platform must be European.

At the moment, however, any offer that wanted to establish a counterweight to the commercial platforms on the free market would be seriously at a disadvantage, because it could hardly catch up with the lead of the platforms due to their years of data collection and their size and the associated network effects – and yes, too shouldn’t.

Bundle fee-financed content – across Europe

But there is another pound that can proliferate a public infrastructure: high quality content. There are already hundreds of thousands of films, documentaries, series, news produced with public money or fees. They could be bundled on one platform and presented in an attractive way.

To this end, European public broadcasters such as ARD, ZDF, BBC, RAI, DR would have to make their content publicly available on such a European media platform. This would, similar to the basic idea at ARTE in the early 1990s, break out of the national way of thinking and information.

Germany can take action and invite other partners such as France or the Scandinavian countries, or – regardless of Brexit – the British BBC with its award-winning offers. The platform can not only serve as a media library, i.e. a showcase, but also as a technical platform for sharing, discussing, remixing and providing your own content. This creates a communication platform that is independently financed and independent of national or European budget titles and which would also be completely free of advertising, open and data protection friendly.

Not a substitute, but an alternative

Such a platform will not replace established commercial platforms, but it will be a serious alternative to Facebook, YouTube and Co – and it can give individuals a real choice that is almost never given today.https://123helpme.me/community-service-essay/

It is precisely through the provision of attractive content that part of the political discourse will migrate to this public platform. In Germany, it could be legally anchored as the fourth major pillar alongside ARD, ZDF and Deutschlandradio and thus receive a relevant share of the funding from the broadcasting fee.

Thanks to its “data protection by design” approach, it could also be actively used in schools and thus help solve today’s dilemma that communication between school, pupils and parents usually takes place with a guilty conscience via problematic systems such as WhatsApp.

Independent of political influence

The platform needs its own agile management level (directorship). Users, including those selected at random from the respective participating countries, are to be involved in the supervision and control on an equal footing with the other members. The clear requirement is independence from politics and political influence in order not to repeat the mistakes of the previous German public service broadcasting and to bring together the strengths in the European network.

For the curation of content, search, value and sorting functions, a concept will have to be developed along the lines of the public service mandate in order to map plurality and controversies. The new digital possibilities of automatic translation make it possible to perceive foreign-language content regardless of one’s own language skills, for example through comprehensive subtitling and translation. This creates a genuinely multilingual platform. 

Private media providers can also participate in the platform and make their own offers available on it. Above all, such a new platform must enter into cooperation, especially with public authorities. Qualitatively checked media content, for example from universities, museums, parliaments could be provided. Cooperation with offers such as Wikipedia would also be desirable.

A secure digital place for school classes and clubs

Everyone should be able to use the new advantages. Additional communication options offer deeper social interaction, be it via your own channels, blogs, albums, or for communication between users. The platform offers the safe place where school classes can share content with each other, the photo gallery of the club festival is stored or adult education centers accompany their courses.

Open interfaces allow new offers and technical approaches to be tested and disseminated if they follow the basic principles of openness, data protection and high IT security. A tremendous synergy arises here if free and open software and applications are better promoted in parallel. It would be a test laboratory and innovation driver at the same time.

 This is how we create an advertising-free alternative to providers with questionable rules and non-transparent recommendation mechanisms. The new platform is not subject to the market logic of focusing attention. It counteracts the influence of foreign countries that want to exert influence through disinformation and bought reach. Instead, it strengthens the European public. For future European elections and debates, such a common platform would be a huge gain in public space and a step forward that serves everyone.

The popular crime series “Donna Leon” is coming to an end. In 2000, the first case of the novel was broadcast on ARD. At that time, Joachim Król was still investigating Guido Brunetti as Commissario. Uwe Kockisch has been investigating since 2003, but he is now also stepping down from this position.  

The last episode of the ARD series will be broadcast on Christmas Day, “Bild” now reports. There are a total of 26 film adaptations of the Commissario Brunetti novels by the writer Donna Leon, including this last case.  

Discussions about further cooperation with Uwe Kockisch

The end has now been decided by mutual agreement, they say. Christine Strobl, managing director of ARD Degeto, said “Bild”: “Together with UFA Fiction and bestselling author Donna Leon, we have decided to end our special crime series about Commissario Brunetti after more than twenty years with the 26th ‘Donna Leon’ case . My special thanks go to Donna Leon, who created everything, and the unmistakable Uwe Kockisch, with whom we are already talking about further cooperation. “

Did Anis Amri, the assassin from Breitscheidplatz, also have Chancellor Merkel in his sights? Research now shows: he went on a foray through Merkel’s residential area with his camera. 

The Breitscheidplatz assassin Anis Amri apparently photographed the Chancellor’s residence in Berlin in the run-up to the attack. On a photo that was found on Amri’s cell phone, the Chancellor’s house in Berlin-Mitte can be seen in the background, the AFP news agency learned from the Amri committee of inquiry in the Bundestag. There are also other photos from the area around Museum Island, where Merkel has her private apartment.

The ARD political magazine “Kontraste” first reported on the photos. It cited an assessment by the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA), according to which these photos could have been used to scout out possible attack targets.

Committee of Inquiry has doubts

However, this was questioned in the committee of inquiry. The photos found had no apparent intention of spying, the committee told AFP. The Chancellor’s house can only be seen “far in the background” in the photo in question.

 According to the ARD report, the photos were taken on October 23, 2016, just under seven weeks before the Christmas market attack. In their evaluation note six months later, according to ARD, the BKA investigators came to the conclusion that Amri “could have considered the area around Berlin Cathedral as a potential target at that time”.
