the heart of the enlightenment can be pretty dark. A skyscraper in any case, the ZDF once left in the Mainz-lerchenberg RAM, in 1974, was perhaps fashionable; today, the massive headquarters of Germany's zuschauerträchtigstem news magazine is seen architectural the middle ages, on the outside. Who by Wulf Schmieses office can view a different window into the Free roam, you could forget the concrete monsters around it smooth. Already from the second floor, he reaches deep into the Rhine in Hesse, where twelve floors higher, even Frankfurt's Skyline. So ugly, the broadcasting centre is also when the editor-in-chief of the "today journal" of the considered here from the world, he feels important, Vastness, sublimity – all are ingredients of the new, the old Self-consciousness of a news institution.
a Good 40 years after the Premiere, the Format is not only solid, but growing in popularity. "We have the largest range of since 1995", said Wulf Schmiese. Nine out of ten Germans to see at least once in a year, four millions of it be pro edition. And, now, the duration is doubled on Sunday. To this date, the shipment had just 15 instead of 30 minutes. An Expansion, while all the world talks of media crisis – from the perspective of the principal "is a true Statement". Or as it is expressed in its star presenter Claus Kleber: "the decision against the current, we show that the talk of the descending Branch, the public media are, supposedly, is true."
And as that of Claus Kleber in the conversation, he seems a little more relaxed than usual. In the afternoon, in front of the Live performance, he sits with oblique apex over casual Sweater under 15 colleagues at the final team meeting before the broadcast to 21: 45 with a laugh. And to fight with. And kids. And quarrels. And praises. And is clearly in his Element. Because dedicated debates would better show than a quiet, "where is the interesting core of the story is," he explains later in his deceptively simple cubbyhole, "provoke I in the conference, fond of contradiction".
showcase of messages of relevance
Mannered to Argue, to inform good: an afternoon in the light-filled heart in matters of information, basic care, shows how News in a public manner will be taught. Macron, Merkel and Hungary, China, cars, or football, the issues of the day-of-Mainstream for a Long time message. Nevertheless, the tense atmosphere in the case of the Heralds from time to time. Because before in the exact joint time round is self-baked birthday cake is distributed, the weighting, placement, emphasis, from the point of view of outsiders, so to trifles. Claus Kleber says, it's about the Whole. "We are the showcase of the news relevance", from the irons, he is a policy issue and calls instead for more emphasis on a contribution to the computer game addiction. Electric mobility looks to be glue at the beginning of the broadcast, Macrons speech on Europe if at all far behind, a poorly-documented HIV cure at all anywhere.
of 21: 45 he is on the rise – carefully President a dressing – but then with France, followed by post-fossil mobility. After all, the Aids Story is missing. He had no right of veto, says Kleber, "but I haven't moderated any contribution that I wanted to". Pugnacious, never at odds.
As for the proof of the good atmosphere not only in the Anchor Team from Marietta Slomka, Christian Sievers, and adhesive Co-host Gundula Gause bursts after the conference on the barren course and serene comes into the Chat, as your TV is animated face. "I'm really happy about the extra work," enthuses you from the duplicate news block you are reading now also open on Sundays between five Reports plus Interview. The latter should be "with George Clooney," emphasizes your boss Schmiese. "Who is bored, can not inform," adds Claus Kleber. He then prepares to explain the world to us. And of all places, a place where you are is particularly ugly.More about
