German Of The Day: Gegenteil

That means the opposite.

German state TV in action: An Islamist fires a machine gun in Israel, killing one Israeli and injuring others. Israeli security forces kill the attacker.

What does German state news channel ZDF do? They broadcast: “Israel: Palestinian Shot.”

This is nothing new in “journalism,” of course, whether in Germany or anywhere else. But here you can’t “switch the dail.” Germans are taxed to support these state channels, whether they support them or not.
