The new media law (Federal law on electronic media) has little friends. Also, the CVP expressed in the consultation process critical to the design. The party was cautious, because after all, the now-retired CVP Federal councillor Doris Leuthard was the driving force behind the law. It would be to check whether there is a need for a law to accompany the technological change, wrote the CVP in its consultation response.
party President Gerhard Pfister has taken the diplomatic tone now. At the traditional Epiphany meeting of the Association of Swiss media, which took place on Wednesday in Zurich, made it clear to the CVP-chief, that he wants the law on the media. Pfister said: "Instead of big media law collects Hegelian the claim that the media world have to teach according to the law," prefer it small, but temporarily effective measures. Pfister built the criticism of his party colleague in an entertaining, witty speech in which he said the industry level.
The chances of the publisher improve
Pfisters new year's gift to the publisher, an uncompromising Yes to the Expansion of indirect press promotion, a key demand of the Association: The state grants for discounted newspaper delivery to be increased from 50 to 120 million Swiss francs per year.
With the consent of the CVP-President, the chances of the publishers that their call is heard in the Federal government in Bern or will be implemented to improve. The greens and the SP, the media, politicians, Matthias Aebischer and Edith Graf-Litscher (President of the national Council's telecommunications Commission) were also at the meeting, present to support the concern.
