Who comes in the Arena at the most, word

The accusation is right and bourgeois politicians again and again, loudly: SRF to green, to the left, and reports are not balanced about right-wing politics. Recently, SVP-President Albert Rösti made the Swiss television for the defeat of his party in the cantonal of Zurich, elections responsible. The television did in the weeks before the elections, as a rule, the rights of climate-Propaganda. Green and left-wing politicians were partly to come without question. Against such media opinion-making his party not to come.

at Least in "Arena" were, however, SVP-politicians and policy makers in the current legislative session more often to speak as a representative of other parties. The initial analysis of the speeches of the most important Swiss political broadcast by the Digital Democracy Lab at the University of Zurich.

the subtitle of 130 screenings of the years 2016 to 2018 were Investigated; around 1,000 guests took part in the period of the consignment. The University has assigned to each spoken sentence, a speaker, in order to analyze the Text by using Computer Codes. The second most talked thus, SP-a politician, and politicians; at the third, most of those from the FDP.

The high number of spoken words of SVP members has a logic. In the interest of Fairness and public Service "Arena", the creators are trying to give politicians so much time on the screen, this is the percentage strength of the party in the national Parliament. The big Problem: If in a political discussion or a vote, five parties are of the same opinion, and only one other position, the result is often one-sided discussions.

As the "Arena"-Moderator Jonas Projer took over five years ago the shipment, he wanted to clean up exactly. He threw the rear Bank from the show and invited each of the four main guests; only those that have to say to the topic to be really something. Guests of the voters overall, however, the parties ' shares represent, the "Arena"-editorial staff since then, a meticulous, accurate line list. The consignment should remain over time, however, an Image of the Parliament. Publicly, the list is not. However, the SRF indicates that everyone can request it on demand.

Individual politicians talk faster, others slower

in Spite of all the efforts of the "Arena"-editorial: words-analysis of the Democracy Lab shows that the ratios are not balanced as they could be. The SVP speaks of all the parties the most. However, according to their share of over 30 percent in National Council and Council of States, it should come on a lot more words. The even greater disproportion in the case of the CVP is that it comes in comparison to their strength in the Parliament have a lot less content.

SRF argues that word-Counting is not a fair means to check the balance of the "Arena". Individual politicians would be faster and others slower to talk. In addition, the use does not mean less words necessarily, that a party get less attention. The almost most statements are often the ones that have the most weight.

For the affected parties don't count. CVP-President Gerhard Pfister has to understand the poor performance of his party. He says: "This is certainly due to the fact that the CVP represents as a constructive middle party no polarizing opinions, and thus not like other parties, the majority of for spectacle."

at The core, feels Pfister but ignored. About the poll-"Arena" to the AHV and tax package of 12. April. Although the CVP was the architect of this template, should never have to stand in the first row. "Editorial freedom in honor, but this is hard for me to explain." The analysis of the University of Zurich, shows for Pfister that make it the "Arena", to lead a balanced political discussion. Pfister says: "spectacle and ratings to SRF a factual opinion clearly. This is poor public Service."

The SVP, and the other "Arena"is a loser, and resents the good performance of the Greens. Party President Rösti says: "The results have not surprised me. It is, however, so that the small parties are treated with less than 10 percent of the Voters share in the "Arena" similar to a SVP, which has a vote share of close to 30 percent." This is not fair.

For the Green Party is not one size Argument. The party said on request: "The reporting may not reflect simply the Size of the parties, but is a competition of opinions and ideas." In accordance with the law slip in Parliament four years ago the Greens would have had to increase their activities outside the Parliament. Since the "Arena" of each vote template dedicate a shipment, has the positive effect on the presence.

string enter, profiled, but also louder

Between the lines, the Greens criticise the principle of "Arena", the public Service claim to offer the parties according to their share in the Parliament is a stage. Fair, and yet for the General Public that is relevant, entertaining show: this squaring of the circle possible?

Matthias Ackeret, publisher of media portal Persoenlich.com says: "The Arena has been lost for the political formation of opinion in Switzerland is certainly of relevance." Blame the media change. And there, in the meantime, a local TV competition, the lists of their guests to be less politically correct together. Ackeret says: "The "Sunday talk" by TeleZüri is today just as relevant for the political formation of opinion, such as the "Arena"."

The political scientist Mark Balsiger says that the "Arena" was in the Era of Jonas Projer string enter and profiled, but also grew louder. Him miss about the desire of the outgoing moderator, on polarizing figures and is always on a see-saw battle to engage. He says: "You should invite guests who have something to say – and the can under pressure." The veiled Nora Illi, for example, would have simply no accents. Nevertheless, the "Arena games" continues to play a Central role in Swiss politics, says Balsiger.

So, it looks also Fabrizio Gilardi, Director of the Institute for political science at the University of Zurich and co-founder of Digital Democracy Lab. He says: "The "Arena" will of all the Voters looked at, but it has a beam power, in particular in social media." The programme was mainly a place to party slogans were tested: What works in television, is used on podiums.
