French-German broadcaster faces backlash after ditching anti-Semitism film

ARTE, a Franco-German public TV station, has been accused of censorship over its decision to remove a 90-minute documentary titled ‘Chosen and Excluded – The Hate for Jews in Europe’ from its planned broadcasting schedule, saying the film lacks “balance.”

ARTE’s program director, Alain Le Diberder, said in a press statement that the film’s producers, Joachim Schroeder and Sophie Hafner, failed to make a documentary about anti-Semitism in Europe because they used too much footage from Israel and too little from European countries.

    Maybe they could farm the job out to the comments section at Taki’s for some added balance?
    Now I’m curious to see this film?

    They ordered a anti right wing Docu and got a narrative endangering
    Docu about Leftwing and Muselmaniac Antisemitism,
    that can fuel anger, from the population
    which can be upset and the
    Muhamedamns who are offended even without reason and violent to the core.

    A movie about Jew hate in Europe? Just walk around with your eyes open

    I have seen the Docu now, it’s harder Anti Left than I imagined and I can
    understand the furious censoring attempts of the Gulg Communists in
    TV and Press which are literally running it, to stop it from
    boing viral to the uninformed Public.
