Press Self Censorship prevents Racism, Xenophobia.Associated Press Stylebook
] and the German Press Codex Pressecodex 12.1
make sure that such prejudice will not be fanned by main stream media. Racist reports of refugee crime, racial and national crime differences, or, God forbid, IQ differences by races or nations are barely mentioned except in foreign, or extreme right wing publications
Section 12 DISCRIMINATION
There must be no discrimination against a person because of his/her sex, a disability or his membership of an ethnic, religious, social or national group.
GUIDELINE 12.1 REPORTS ON CRIMES
When reporting crimes, it is not permissible to refer to the suspect‘s religious, ethnic or other minority membership unless this information can be justified as being relevant to the readers‘ understanding of the incident. In particular, it must be borne in mind that such references could stir up prejudices against minorities
12.1 violates 12.0 as it is clearly discriminatory. It creates a special protected class, minorities. Of course, white minorities in Los Angeles, Zimbabwe or South Africa are NOT protected minorities,
But 12.1 is "positive discrimination" or "reverse racism" and thus good and acceptable. After all, it fights prejudice.
Or, as nasty racists might say, it allows biased reportint ghat misleads the population into thinking that White police hunting down innocent Blacks is one of the US' biggest problems.
Race differences in IQ, crime, a total taboo
German anti-racist censorship goes further than in the "free speech" USA. German Google actively removes information and Amazon withholds books to protect Germans from Racism.
Amazon refuses to sell the famous book "The Bell Curve". in Germany or Austria. Even total dissidents like Thilo Sarrazin would not dare to even hint at inborn hereditary differences between races.
Perusing only German media, it is almost impossible to know about established research on race and IQ, race and crime, Islamic Jihad immigrant crime and other racist taboo issues.
Virtually unknown is the content of "scientific racism" research papers like
- James Watson’s most inconvenient truth: Race realism and the moralistic fallacy by the preeminent researchers of race and IQ. Arthur Jensen, and J Philippe Rushton. Both were ostracized and persecuted for their serious academic research.
or of sites like
Political correctness and press self censorship are very successful in Germany and make sure Germans remain uninformed.
Thanks to Associated Press Stylebook   and the German Press codex 12.1, if you Google.de German "refugee crime" you get links about "crimes AGAINST refugees".
This was our translation, but the above official translation is better
Press codex 12.1: Reporting crime
When reporting about crime, the fact that a suspect or perpetrator belong to a religious, ethnic, or other minority wll only be mentioned, when that fact is of great relevance for understanding the event being reported on.
It is of special importance that mentioning such details could incite prejudice against minorities.
This 12.1 is in violation of
Press Codex 12: Discrimination
No one must be discriminated against because of his gender, handicap, or his membership of an ethnic, religious, social, or national group
The German “Press Council”, instituted in 1956 to head off government regulation by voluntary self-regulation, allows in its Code of Conduct the mention a criminal’s affiliation with an ethnic, religious or another minority only if the crime is directly related to that affiliation. [Guideline 12. 1 Reports On Crimes]You may report it, for instance, when Muslim gangs attack Christians because of their religion, or when Palestinians march together with German Communists and Nazis shouting “Hamas! Hamas! Jews to the gas!” as in Berlin last June. [Wave of anti-Semitic rallies hits cities across Germany, Times Of Israel, July 21, 2014] But you must not mention it in the case of sexual assaults, robbery, burglary or other crimes, because these crimes are not exclusively committed by these ethnic or religious groups.
In Cologne, there were simply too many women who described the sexual mob as of “Arab or North African origin” to be ignored. But one or even several individual cases would not have been enough to break the wall of silence.
Not less alarming are the attempts to shut down dissent voices against Merkel´s reckless policy of Open Borders. Take the case of Akif Pirincci, a German writer of Turkish origin, who warns constantly against the danger of Islamization and the transformation of Germany into a “Muslim dumping ground”. His books, among them Germany Gone Mad, [Deutschland von Sinnen ] were bestsellers—until this fall, the big publishers and bookshops decided not to distribute them anymore. It was the first time since the Nazi era that such a boycott had occurred. But instead of protesting, most German public intellectuals defended censorship.
Similarly, the Catholic journalist Matthias Matussek was fired by the newspaper Die Welt because he after the November massacres in Paris he posted on his personal Facebook page: “I think that the Terror in Paris will move also our debate about open borders and a quarter million of non-registered young Muslim men in our country in an entirely new and fresh direction”.
