Media: NDR Broadcasting Council examines allegations in Kiel

Following allegations against Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) at the Kiel site, the independent Schleswig-Holstein State Broadcasting Council is launching an investigation. "We, as the sole control body, will carry out this check and, where necessary, consult external expertise. We take the allegations made very seriously," said Chairwoman Laura Pooth after a special meeting. The committee members will therefore collect documents and information and hold the necessary discussions.

The case revolves around allegations in connection with the political reporting of the public broadcaster ARD. The online medium "Business Insider" and then "Stern" had reported allegations that there could be a kind of filter by the superiors in the editorial office. For example, it was about an interview that an NDR journalist wanted to conduct, but his superiors refused.

The editor-in-chief of the NDR for Schleswig-Holstein, Norbert Lorentzen, said afterwards that the "accusation of political influence on our programs was decisively rejected". The ARD broadcaster NDR made a similar statement in a statement. "The NDR rejects the accusation that there is a "political filter" in the Schleswig-Holstein state radio station. The reporting is unbiased and independent."
