“Future advice” for public broadcasters: Comedy saves the world
Next week, the broadcasting commission of the federal states wants to reveal who is now advising them on the future of public service media.
Next week, the broadcasting commission of the federal states wants to reveal who is now advising them on the future of public service media. camels! So the 911 is coming just in time for carnival! “Future Council”. Of course, only with an advisory function should people from science, technology and creative minds think about how the acceptance of public broadcasters can be improved. And advise politicians on their broadcasting reform agenda.
Have fun! ARD has just announced that its directors had developed “a common vision of the future” at their most recent meeting in Hanover. It would also be even nicer if all the highly paid lemmings had all thrown themselves on the leash for lack of a vision for the future. One can only hope that the same future is meant.
In any case, the ARD is now also relying on “the biggest reform agenda in its history”, as the new one says ARD chairman Kai Gniffke from SWR put it this way: “We’re starting this with a mixture of courage and humility.” That’s great, especially since ARD has humbly announced the biggest reform in its history every year since 2017. Now, for example, she wants to “take the media library seriously”. Didn’t she have that before? Yes, yes, says Gniffke, “the train is already rolling, the only question is at what speed.”
But it’s mean to take a few press conference phrases out of context, after all, the old adage “comedy saves the world” applies even to public broadcasters. Therefore, the future Elferrat could really do great things here. It just depends on who’s in there. “And the speed at which they overtake politics and public service!” says the roommate.
Practitioners and creative people have to get their chance
Originally, the countries governed by the Union had the foolish plan of turning it into a kind of CDU-led sub-broadcasting commission, because it is not at the helm in the real one. That’s off the table now. It would be wise to involve friends and foes alike in the festival committee. Doctor Döpfner from Springer, for example, is no longer the president of the publishing house and therefore has the necessary free time as a radio-political carnival prince.
On the other hand, it is not recommended to use retired constitutional judges who are heavily influenced by public law as farmers. The result would probably be arthrosis in Bitburg, and they are always so expensive. It is important that practitioners and creative people really get their chance. And don’t think of the really big ones here. Take the clever little ones like Lutz Hachmeister. If then Jan Böhmermann as a virgin leading and hosting this next greatest broadcast reform agenda in history, everything is scratched. Although: like in the triumvirate, they are all guys!
