Haltungsfragen – können Journalist*innen völlig neutral sein?

Info
Haltung im Journalismus wird von den einen unterstellt, von den anderen eingefordert und von dritten als unumgänglich bezeichnet. Wir diskutieren mit Journalist*innen, die in der Sache streiten, aber eine Gemeinsamkeit haben: Sie sind aufrichtig und wahrhaftig an exzellentem Journalismus mit hohen Standards interessiert.
