Americans are controlling German media

Summary of Disinformation

The media in Germany is largely dependent on their owners in the United States. Today, none of the chief editors of leading media organizations can be appointed to the position unless they have completed a half-year internship in the American media outlets.



No evidence given. German law does not limit or prohibit foreign ownership of the media. However, foreign ownership is a minor factor in the German media market.

Recurring pro - Kremlin disinformation about US presence in Europe.
