Ideology: "Tagesschau" spokesman writer frustrated: Too much politics

"Tagesschau" spokesman and author Constantin Schreiber considers too many political and ideological debates in private conversations to be a problem. "You can no longer escape from politics," said Schreiber in an interview with the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" (weekend edition).

"Haven't you noticed? That every topic today - sports, culture, nutrition, travel, entertainment - is shaped by political and ideological debates? That no matter what you're talking about, you're constantly being evaluated and sorted? You rave about you Visiting the museum, someone counters that the exhibition is problematic because it only shows art by men."

More serenity required

Of course, people should deal with politics, said the journalist and publicist. "Nevertheless, political issues shouldn't constantly creep into our most private moments. There have to be interruptions."

You always have to “behave about something” through social media, said the 43-year-old. He pleads for more serenity. "People become more sympathetic when you get to know them in their individuality and not just as a reflection of political attitudes."

Schreiber has been a "Tagesschau" spokesman since January 2021, and he has published several books as an author, most recently the non-fiction book "Glück im Unglück - How I remain optimistic despite bad news". He lives in Hamburg with his wife and two children.
