Fair is foul, and foul is fair:
Hover through the fog and filthy air.
We’ve already become accustomed to press reports of happenings and hearing the statements of our politicians as something seen through a camera obscura – passing them through a very small hole at first, and then looking at them upside down (which in this case nearly generates a kind of truth). But during the last few days the gyrations performed with definitions and invocations have turned so wild, moved around so incessently that it takes one’s breath away and any clear image dissappears in the whirl.
First the coalition of defenders of western values invoked these values on a street in Paris. In short succession after that came the jubulation by the hired butchers of words over the choice of the “Unword of the Year“, making the whole bunch feel ennobled while the same motive used for the uplifting of the presstitutes became a completely irrelevant footnote when dealing with the brown shirted view of history presented by the Ukrainian ally. And even human compassion, although it appeared briefly on the frontpages after the Paris assault, was hurriedly sent back into hibernation, considering the continuous artillery barrage of Novorossija. It makes one long for a slow motion button, or at least a vow not to take in more than one of these twistings at a time, just to keep one’s sanity.
What a jubilation arose after the word „Lügenpresse“ (press of lies) was elected to be the „Unword of the Year”. It had been, so the the jury´s statement, „a keyword for ideological attack already during WWI and was also used by the Nazis to generally defame independent media.“ And suddenly they all felt independent, the scribbling serfs of Springer and Bertelsmann. It came about so easily. The jury described „a general defamation on the part of the independent media, because the overwhelming majority of their representatives try to counter the intentionally incited fear of an alleged „islamisation of the Occident“ with neutral presentation of social issues and a differenciated sight.“ Deutsche Welle, all those months prematurely yearning for a status of war correspondent, built the bridge between the French community’s western values to the choice of the „UNword“ straight away. You can only observe with stunned amazement how the inhabitants of the media trenches define themselves as „critical media“ and, after launching a continuous barrage of sheer twisted reality, still have the daring to decorate themselves with sentences like this one:
“Because, what is the consequence of a term like „press of lies“? It means that there is only one writing the truth and that is the only truth. But the pluralism of democracy opposes this single truth.“
