Since the talk show with the philosopher and prostitute Salomé Balthus, the waves go high. In the run-up to a false quote made the rounds, which is attributed to Balthus Schawinski. After the broadcast, Interviewer Roger Schawinski is criticised in various media for his interview style and his attitude towards women. In this Interview, he takes a position on the allegations. The Interview was conducted in writing. The answers are published in an unabridged Form.
Mr Schawinski, you have asked a woman to Primetime unsolicited and directly whether she had been abused as a child sexually abused. Why can you find the question appropriate?
Salomé Balthus as a studied philosopher, writer, and prostitute with extreme Blogs, in which they virtually exclusively about their sexual adventures reported ("Fuck the Rich"), a unique feature in the German-speaking area. With her, I wanted to treat some important aspects of Prostitution, and had several one-player of Prostitution, critics of the show. Alice Schwarzer mentioned in your Statement that prostitutes are disproportionately often been abused in her youth, sexually abused, and that this is evidenced by many studies. I went with my question, I would have only one Person with the very special profile of Salomé Balthus.
In an Interview with Persönlich.com you say, you would have asked, in retrospect, a psychiatrist, whether the question was legitimate. Have you also consulted in the run-up to professionals?
no, but I've relied on the published literature. There I learned, among other things, that the same phenomenon also on the sex offenders applies – above-average, many of them have also been sexually abused as children.
you Would have been prepared, if a woman Balthus would have actually said that they had been abused as a child sexually abused?
I expected four possible answers: "I will give no answer to that" and I accepted absolutely. Or "that was not the case with me". Or "Yes, I have, like many other of my professional colleagues, unfortunately, experienced". Or something Spongy. She decided to go for the last variant, which I immediately accepted. To do this, it is necessary to mention that this dialogue took place at the beginning of the show. Mrs. Balthus came to be extremely nervous in the Studio. Later, she has relaxed. At the end of the program she was disappointed that everything was over so quickly, as you said in front of the camera.
woman Balthus quoted you, in retrospect, incorrectly, that they have asked, whether she had been molested by his father, sexually abused. After that, she lost her column in the "world". You will find this is a sequel appropriate?
I was surprised about this procedure. Actually, I was thinking only to a correction of the fake quote that was the starting point of your entire attack on me. The decision was taken by the leadership of the "world", because in Germany, in the direct aftermath of the Relotius affair in terms of Fake quotes, absolute zero tolerance, what I can understand. It is interesting to note in the case of your attack on me, that she has reported to the recording with us and me requests left, if I could help her to further TV appearances. The shock of my actions, not sass, obviously, quite so deep, as she described it after the show in your Blog in a dramatic way.

To Personally.ch didn't you say it that women demand equality and then to the less critical questions in the so-called "soft issues" would throb. In essence, it comes to your interview style, whether in the Studio a man or a woman sitting. How do you deal with this criticism?
I have a critical interview. They do that by the way is currently with me. For years I was criticized that I deal with women a lot gentler than with men, which was partially entitled. Therefore, the implicit accusation of the woman's hostility shocked me, because that's the way I feel by no means. All people have to know me or be with me for decades worked, would confirm this.
angriffige ask your opinion on all of the issues adequately?
not at All. I don't do that. Maybe you should take a look at my recent shows, for instance, the one with Erich Gysling, or with Laura Zimmermann of the Operation of the Libero. But in the case of political issues, I take a quasi-automatic anti-thetic attitude, because only such an approach will lead to statements and findings that do not hang on the surface, because Yes, everyone Interviewed would like to, if possible, only its a chocolate present.
"I never would have thought that you want to hang me after a very long career in media, especially in a single sentence I never said."
do you feel by the media as a misogynist. You have the feeling that you need to hold out as a scapegoat, as an "old white man"?
Yes, this is apparently the new Mantra of extreme feminists. Wherein the term treacherous is because it can go with us in contrast to the United States only to the issue of Gender and not a race question. It is a US-directly import. The approach itself is not a fire hazard. Crucial will be the identity of a Person. Important what someone says or does, but who he is. And these "old white men", which up to now had all the privileges, in this diction no rights. You need to be eliminated, such as the "Watson"-the journalist Simone Meier explicitly demanded. To do this, all means are legal, the General denigration by means of question, thou most worthy statements. Yes, I'm Worried. If we go further on this path, we weaken ourselves as a society at a crucial point.
What consequences do you draw from this affair?
I never would have thought that you want to hang me after a very long career in media, especially in a single sentence I never said. This is disgraceful and exceeded my imagination. Also I underestimated the aggressiveness of certain feminists, the Black, and have even scolded Alice, the icon of the emancipation movement, the has a rating of my show, positively, the Worst. And I was surprised, why this thing took such a Dimension, because you have to pay from the beginning, enormous click generated. Some journalists could not get enough of it, and troubled self of journalistically questionable methods such as the "Sunday newspaper". So it has been suppressed-which for me is a positive assessment by the most qualified Alice Schwarzer, although the article in the editorial was, because this would have destroyed the Narrative from the unanimous Shitstorm. Apparently, some Journis took carriages for the Return to this impossible Schawinski, who is still resting, shot, spectacularly. Yes, and then this: I'm going to invite birds of Paradise as Salomé Balthus and me on the tried and tested talk show offer to leave. What a pity, I think.
