The tale of the filter bubble

Since the election, Donald trump for President of the United States of America, the world finally know what is the real Problem: The filter bubble is to blame. At all. People no longer talk to each other, move in circles of their peers and chambers in secluded Echo the opinion to confirm.

particularly impenetrable seems to be the bladder, the journalists surrounds. Didn't have to see the media that Trump is President? The journalists with their condescending attitude towards those who have come to rallies in the Midwest, "Lock her up" screaming Trumps victory is not enabled in the first place?

And it doesn't stop with Trump. With him, it starts. There is the "Brussels bubble", in which journalists from each other, "against the impositions of Europe's critics warm" ("The mirror"). There are the left-liberal consensus bubble, the ausblendete the fakes of the reporter Claas Relotius aware of (so the reading of many on the Right). And there is the bubble in which journalists are "conservative, less articulate" as racist and Abschotter stamped and, therefore, the right-wing populists in the arms and bustle, as the former Price watchdog, Rudolf Strahm, formulated recently.

All of these bubbles summoners have completely missed, obviously, the media coverage of the past few years – or hide them consciously. There is hardly a Medium in the Western world, precisely as the Trump voters and to get voters the word was. Maximum transmission time for the AfD in Germany, for the yellow the West, in France, for all the people, the fear somewhere in front of anything.

It is not true. That any journalist would be, and journalists are left-liberal academics, daughters and sons, is interested only in the one, of one's own opinion, spoiled, with a degree of reflection, which extends only until the next trendy Café with free Wi-Fi – this story is not true, if you repeat them as often as possible.

With the "other" for every serious journalist.

This is especially true for Switzerland, where it is almost impossible to hide for all the times in a progressive urban bubble. Where should the be? In such a small country where everyone knows what it means to spend an evening at a Church meeting, in a mountain hut with other hikers to embark upon, and where almost everyone has ancestors, the farmers or simple workers were, is the formation of closed environments.

add to that: It doesn't take the own biographical experience – the ten years in the mixed choir or the Board of the gymnastics club (Buckten BL!) – to be able to "with the other" talk. This is also just like that. It's part of the craft of every serious journalist. Who is allowed to report as a political Journalist in Switzerland four times in the year, submissions to the ballot box, can't help it, with different opinions. It is normal.

And is it, conversely, meant not infinitely condescending, when you are facing the Language "conservative, less", the people from the country that represents ordinary employees and workers and peasants, constantly, as if they had no will of their own? No reflectance and no reason? As the flammable mass that thinks with the belly instead of the head?

Who, as a Conservative, the allegedly left-wing media blame that angry Americans choose Trump, angry French the arch of triumph, light, and the angry German Mrs Merkel wishes to Nowhere, the acting even as he accused the journalists in the bubble: pretty elitist.
