Questionable articles from highly dubious sources not only sets the agenda on social media. They are also involved in the Danish Parliament, where the politicians ask questions to the ministers based on misleading information. It writes Politiken.
at Least 69 written questions ago 2015 based on articles from the 24nyt, NewSpeek, The Short Newspaper and Today's.dk.
It is the media, as an expert panel of also media researchers in Wednesday's Politiken described as 'junkmedier', after having examined the button 250 articles on the basis of 20 criteria of good journalism.
the Media will get the ram, because, according to the researchers often deceives, omits material information and rarely hear the other party.
In Politiken's review of the 69 questions, there are several examples of politicians refers to information, which turns out to be wrong.
for Example, asked the Danish people's party, Pia Adelsteen, in 2018, the ministry of Justice to account for a case of two arab mothers, who, according to The Brief Newspaper stood on a walkway, while their children threw rocks at a car.
Police investigated the matter and concluded that there was not a team in history.
- I can't sit and spend my time to find out whether a journalist has been good enough or not, then I'd have enough to see to, says Pia Adelsteen today to Politiken.
the Politicians ' use of the above-mentioned junkmedier is 'problematic', think a professor of political science at Aarhus University Michael Bang Petersen, a researcher in the misinformation.
Politicians are behaving here just like many citizens on social media. They assess not critical, if the information is right or wrong. It is purely to maintain its own perspective. And it risks distorting the public debate, says Michael Bang Petersen.
Six out of seven of the written questions from the criticized media derived from the Danish people's party mps. The other is made by members of the Left or Unity.
the Questions trades basically all about immigration, muslims or the expulsion of the criminals.
In connection with the 69 questions in writing to the ministries, among others, had to activate the Police Intelligence service (PET), the national Police, the immigration office, the University of Copenhagen and Indsamlingsnævnet to answer them.
