A German journalist interviewed the co-leader of the far-right AfD, asking questions about climate change, pensions, housing & digitalisation. The far-right politician didn’t have any answers. Every journalist should read this. (via ⁦⁩)
I really can’t recommend this article enough; German media have worked out how to deal with the far right; STOP asking them about their pet issues, START asking them for answers on actual policy challenges. It exposes them for what they are. Charlatans.
While American journalists vastly outnumbered far-right protestors in DC this weekend--and still gave them front-page coverage--a German journalist shows an alternative (pun intended) for dealing with the far-right
