The Tagesschau (own spelling: tagesschau ) is a news program of the ARD , which is produced by ARD-aktuell in Hamburg and several times a day in the Erste , on tagesschau24 and as a live stream on tagesschau.de as well as the main edition at 8 p.m. additionally in the third television programs (except MDR ), Phoenix , 3sat , DW-TV , tagesschau24 and ARD-alpha .

The Tagesschau is the oldest broadcast on German television that still exists . Editing and production of the Tagesschau are based at NDR (previously at NWDR ) in Hamburg . Up to 20 issues are created and broadcast per day. Up to 16 million viewers see the main edition of the Tagesschau . The website tagesschau.de is created under the responsibility of ARD and is increasingly operated as a news portal with an independent share of current news in its own editorial team.

In autumn 1951, the castle NWDR with the New German newsreel an agreement: From the footage of newsreels , the first and initially only should an editor Martin S. Svoboda with two sectional champions compile news show for the scheduled TV program. The small team worked in the basement of today's Hamburg Warburg house at Heilwigstrasse 116; Svoboda took the film roll to the Heiligengeistfeld by underground , because broadcasts were broadcast from the local World War II bunker.

First broadcasts

The first Tagesschau officially started on December 26, 1952, one day after the NWDR television program started on the station's northern program and five days after the first issue of its GDR counterpart Current Camera . In the NWDR test program, the Tagesschau was already running from January 4, 1952, initially under the name of Fernseh-Filmbericht and from November 1 as Tagesschau  - if otherwise stated, the name was already renamed in August. Initially, three issues were broadcast a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8 p.m. (in between the daily news was repeated at 10 p.m.). The program initially reached around 1,000 viewers. The topic of the first broadcast of the day was Eisenhower's trip to Korea several weeks ago, the topping-out ceremony for the television studios in Hamburg-Lokstedt , an ice revue and the soccer game between Germany and Yugoslavia.

The difference with the newsreel was mainly the fact that the evening news was current and faster. However, it also consisted of film reports and still images without a news announcer and with a commentary voice (narrator Cay-Dietrich Voss ) from the off that was typical of films and followed the film plot. Until 1953, all material came from the newsreel . In terms of content, there was a mix of disasters, sports and 'colorful news', politics played a subordinate role. The focus was on conversation.

As a summary of the Tagesschau , the Wochenspiegel was broadcast on Sundays from January 4, 1953 .


In 1955 the editorial office was relocated to Hamburg-Lokstedt , where the NDR set up its first television building; the contract with the newsreel expired. Agencies in particular now supplied film images, and Eurovision began exchanging messages in October 1958 . Since October 1, 1956, the Tagesschau broadcast daily from Monday to Saturday; it continued to consist only of films. From March 2, 1959, the NDR radio provided a five-minute block of words; Karl-Heinz Köpcke was the first news anchor. The cinematic message became the illustrated word message - that is the form that is still valid today. "For millions of German citizens, the daily news of German television has become a natural habit," wrote the then ARD chairman Hans Bausch in 1962 on the tenth anniversary of the program, which has also been shown on Sundays since September 1961. "No German television program or series has such a consistently high audience rate as this daily television news service."

Since 1960, the Tagesschau has had its own weather department, which is located in the Hessischer Rundfunk . The first weather forecast was called The Weather of Tomorrow on March 1, 1960. The data are obtained from the German Weather Service . First, Germany was shown on the weather maps within the boundaries of 1937 . With that change, protesting the expellees' associations .

Since the beginning, every Tagesschau broadcast has been introduced with a chime of the gong . The tagesschau's signature music, used from 1956 and later modified several times, comes from the composition Hammond-Fantasie by Hans Carste and was arranged by Rudolf Kühn for the radio orchestra. From 1967 onwards there was a legal dispute between the two composers over their share in the work.


The Tagesschau has been broadcasting in color since March 29, 1970 , the design has been changed, and illustrations should clarify the news topics. Since the same day, the editors have dispensed with the old imperial borders for the weather map.

From January 1972, the blue screen process was used to project changeable images onto the artificial studio background.

From 1976 Dagmar Berghoff appeared as the first Tagesschau spokeswoman .

In January 1978 the first Daily Themes broadcast went over the screen. With the new format, ARD established a longer news format in the late evening, which usually lasts 30 minutes. In addition to current events, the program sheds light on the background to political, economic and cultural events. Hanns Joachim Friedrichs , one of the two Tagesthemen moderators since October 1985 , was soon “Mister Tagesthemen” and, like Karl-Heinz Köpcke, a trademark for journalistic quality.

On July 25, 1988, the Tagesschau from Hamburg (NDR) was canceled at 8 p.m. A warning strike organized by the then radio union RFFU ( Rundfunk-Fernseh-Film-Union ) prevented the broadcast of the program for the first time in the history of ARD. As an alternative, the Tagesschau was produced and broadcast at short notice by Bavarian Broadcasting in Munich. Michael Winter was the spokesperson for this issue. To justify this, it said in this broadcast that the Tagesschau was being broadcast “today because of force majeure from Munich”.

Breakfast television started in 1992 with daily news broadcasts every half hour. From March 1, 1995, the moderated night magazine replaced the night edition of the Tagesschau . In 1997 the moderated daily news came at five in the afternoon, which was quickly followed by other long issues at 12 noon, 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. From January 1, 2000 to April 19, 2014, the traditional opening fanfare was played with a similar but markedly different melody, in which the last four of the six notes differed from the original version.


In 2001, Das Erste closed the night gap with two currently produced Tagesschau broadcasts at around 2:30 a.m. and 4:45 a.m. - Tagesschau became a 24-hour service.

After the new construction of the ARD-aktuell complex on the premises of the NDR in Hamburg-Lokstedt, there were two almost identical studios until 2014. In the first, larger one, the programs for the Erste program were produced as well as the night and weekend editions of the Tagesschau in 100 seconds . The tagesschau24 program was broadcast daily from the second studio . In case of need or emergency, this studio could be used as a replacement for the first studio. In the event of overlaps in broadcasting operations, for example if the 8 p.m. edition is postponed in the first, but has to start punctually in the third ARD programs, both studios were in use at the same time.

Transcript: "Brief interruption (this post may not be shown on the Internet for legal reasons)"

At ARD-aktuell - that's the name of the editorial team since 1977 - around 90 editors worked in 2005. You produce Tagesschau editions for Das Erste and the digital channel tagesschau24 , a daily themed issue, a night magazine from Monday to Friday around midnight or later, and on Sundays the weekly mirror - on a normal working day, that's 240 minutes of programming. Special broadcasts for important events are part of the routine; After the broadcast, the programs can be seen on the Internet at tagesschau.de . The 8 p.m. edition can be downloaded there as a podcast format (audio and video). The Tagesschau has also been broadcast as a live stream on tagesschau.de at least since 2005 .

The Tagesschau has been broadcast in 16: 9 since July 1, 2007 . In addition, as part of the new ARD digital strategy, there is a daily news in 100 seconds , which has been available on mobile phones and on the Internet since July 16, 2007. This is updated every hour from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Since February 2008, the news offering from EinsExtra (today: tagesschau24 ) has been expanded.

At the end of 2009 a free Tagesschau app for the iPhone and iPod Touch was announced for the first quarter of 2010, which was criticized by the media and politics. Kai Gniffke , who started the discussion with the dpa in which he announced the app, defended the plans to publish the app in two posts on his blog. Contrary to the plans to publish the Tagesschau app in the first quarter of the year, the offer did not start until December 21, 2010. No additional content should be offered via the initially free app, but rather the new mobile offer, according to NDR's own information - Intendant Lutz Marmor provides a contemporary service for the audience. Since 2011 the logo of the Tagesschau app has also been shown in the opening credits. On June 20, 2012, the Tagesschau app won the Grimme Online Award audience award and in October 2012 the Eyes & Ears Award .

On December 31, 2010, the 20,000. 8 pm broadcast of the Tagesschau .

Both the live stream available on the Internet and the version of the daily news that can be accessed as an “online stream” or podcast differ from the television version that was previously broadcast or that was broadcast at the same time. Some posts - especially posts from the sports category - are either completely excluded or a waiting screen is displayed. In this case, the message: "Brief interruption (this post may not be shown on the Internet for legal reasons)". Other contributions will be editorially corrected before they are published on the Internet. In this case, the message: "Note: The post 'XY' was edited later".

The average age of the audience is 61 years (as of 2013).

Since 2014

The current Tagesschau studio has been broadcasting since April 19, 2014 . The central element of the new studio is a 19-meter-long, arched media wall, which is played with seven projectors from the rear . The background is displayed on it and forms a coherent overall picture with both the moderator and the studio. A computer revises distortions in real time.

Production takes place in HD  - beforehand, the image was subsequently extrapolated for broadcasting in HD. Two rounded, three-sided moderation tables facing the front, each with two speaker sides, form the front of the studio on a dark wooden floor.

The opening fanfare by composer Hans Carste was rearranged by Henning Lohner . It now uses the original melody of the Hammond Fantasy again instead of the modified version that was broadcast from 2000 to 2014. The intro was recorded by Claudia Urbschat-Mingues , Angelina Jolie's German dubbing voice .

Up to 20 issues of the Tagesschau are broadcast daily from the 320 square meter studio. In addition, the digital news channel tagesschau24 , the daily themes , the night magazine and until August 24, 2014 the weekly mirror are produced in this studio. The construction costs for the new studio amounted to 23.8 million euros, financed from public contributions .

After the Cologne Higher Regional Court in December 2013 still considered the so-called "three-step test" to be sufficient to ensure that the Tagesschau app was not a press-like product, the First Civil Senate of the Federal Court of Justice granted the complainant newspaper publishers' appeal for appeal and rejected it returned the case to the lower court in April 2015. This had to re-examine to what extent the content of the app would be a press-like offer and thus unfair competition between the public broadcasters. The trade union ver.di regretted the decision against the NDR in a press release .

The Tagesschau in 100 seconds has also been produced in English and Arabic since November 16, 2015 and was available on the Internet. It was discontinued in October 2019.

Since April 11, 2016, the 8 pm daily news has also been shown on BR television . The reason for this was the popularity of the Tagesschau in the BR broadcasting area. The daily news broadcast on the BR has a different weather forecast .

The speakers of the Tagesschau are paid per issue. For the high-rated 8 p.m. program it was (as of December 2020) 260 euros per issue.


A graphic illustration of the ratings of several nationally informative German news programs showed the Tagesschau 2012 in first place in terms of audience numbers.
(Viewers in millions)

The Tagesschau main edition is by far the most watched news program on German television. In 2015 it reached an average of 9.11 million viewers on the first, the third program of ARD, on 3sat , Phoenix and Tagesschau24 . The market share of the Tagesschau main edition at 8 p.m. was 32.7% in 2015. In 2014 there were 8.9 million viewers, the market share in 2014 was 31.9%. In the first, the Tagesschau had an average of around five million viewers. In comparison, in 2015 the Today news on ZDF was seen by an average of 3.60 million viewers. In third place in 2015 was RTL currently at 6:45 p.m. with an average of 3.14 million viewers. The Tagesschau thus reached more viewers in the first and simultaneously in several third programs on 3sat, Phoenix and Tagesschau24 than the main news from ZDF, RTL and Sat.1 combined. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in Germany , the 8 p.m. Tagesschau saw an average of 11.77 million viewers in 2020. This corresponds to a market share of 39.5 percent, two million more viewers than in 2019, and is the highest value measured since the measurement of overall German television behavior (1990). A particularly large number of viewers were recorded during the “ lockdown ” months.

The main edition of the Tagesschau at 8:00 p.m. defines the start of the main evening program. At the end of the 1990s, inter alia Sat.1 and ProSieben to break with this habit by starting their evening program at 8 p.m. After only a few months, both channels returned at the usual time at 8:15 p.m. - viewers were too used to this time. In this context, the former RTL boss Helmut Thoma once said the sentence “The Tagesschau is not a broadcast, but pure habit. Which can also read out in Latin man. "In general, the messages are in the evening news from a teleprompter read. The sheets are now only used as a substitute for technical problems with the "Prompter".

The term “Tagesschau” is protected by trademark law. The taz had to rename its so-called rubric after it was sued by the ARD (it is now called "forbidden"). The project, which ProSieben messages early 1990s Tagesbild to name, was due to an alleged risk of confusion and exploitation of reputation of the title Tagesschau by the judgment of the Higher Regional Court in Hamburg eliminated in the second instance. In the last instance, however, the ARD was defeated in 2001 before the Federal Court of Justice , which denied any likelihood of confusion. Furthermore, the BGH allowed competitors of the Tagesschau to use a title with the words daily for a daily broadcast , as the selection of meaningful titles was limited. The judgment was not used by ProSieben, as it had refrained from the Tagesbild project during the ten-year legal dispute .

After the announcement of a free Tagesschau app in 2009, Axel Springer AG criticized this project in a press release and described such an app as a "distortion of competition": The offer corresponds to that of a daily newspaper with the advantages of the public law framework. This was followed by identical criticism from politicians ( Wolfgang Börnsen , Bernd Neumann and Burkhardt Müller-Sönksen ) and the Association of German Magazine Publishers . The updated customizable app from 2016 has also been criticized again for the same reasons, even though it offers more video content.

  • The theme tune of the program comes from the composition Hammond-Fantasie by the film musician Hans Carste , which he wrote while a Soviet prisoner of war. The jazz clarinetist Rolf Kühn arranged the piece and had it recorded by a radio orchestra for the Tagesschau in 1956 . The melody was re-orchestrated in 1994, 1997 and 2005 in keeping with the times. Another revision was planned for 2012. After objections by the composer's widow to the revised version and due to technical problems, the 2005 version was still used until April 19, 2014. Since April 19, 2014, a version has been used that is very much based on the original melody. There is another, somewhat shorter variant that is used when, as an exception , the daily news does not start with the greeting of the speaker, but with pictures.
  • On December 26, 2012, the Tagesschau celebrated its 60th birthday. At the same time, a new news studio was to be put into operation. Due to technical problems, this deadline could not be kept. Instead, the new studio went into operation on April 19, 2014.
  • As the best-known German news program, the Tagesschau has been parodied several times by comedians . On the occasion of its 60th anniversary it was possible to vote on the most popular ones on the Internet. The parodies by Loriot , Rudi Carrell and Otto Waalkes took places 1–3.
  • On March 13, 2013, the main edition of the Tagesschau reported from 8 p.m. on the papal election in Rome . Due to the current events, there was a direct broadcast from St. Peter's Square . During the airing time, the Archbishop of Buenos Aires , Jorge Mario Bergoglio , was introduced to the public as the new Pope . This was followed by more news of the day in the Tagesschau edition, so that the broadcast time was around 48 minutes in total.
  • On the 25th anniversary of the fall of the wall , November 9, 2014, the Twitter account of the Tagesschau did not send any current news from 9 a.m., but repeated the events of November 9, 1989 under the hashtag #mauerfall in real time. On this occasion, the logo in the profile picture was replaced by a corresponding logo from 1989.
  • On January 3, 2016, Judith Rakers took on a role in the Hamburg crime scene Purgatory , in which she moderated the daily news while a hostage-taking took place.
  • On July 22, 2016, the main issue of the reported Tagesschau from 20 clock on the attack in Munich . The output lasted an hour and 14 minutes until Thomas Roth took over with the topics of the day .
  • The cost of a Tagesschau edition was put at 27,000 euros in 2017.
  • The duration of contributions for the broadcast is usually 1:30 minutes.
  • On March 14, 2019, Jan Hofer had to cancel the main edition of the Tagesschau shortly before the end of the program for health reasons.
  • In October 2019, a future format started with the podcast Malhaben , in which a five-person team of correspondents from the ARD capital studio in Berlin thinks ahead a current political idea for the future and theoretically plays through the possible consequences.
  • On October 1, 2020, the Tagesschau announced that it would publish selected videos on the Internet under a Creative Commons license. Since the contributions are under the most restrictive of all CC licenses ( CC BY-NC-ND ), they may not be changed or used commercially. For example, it can not be used in Wikipedia ; an even more free license such as CC BY or CC BY-SA would be required for this.
  • In 2020, Judith Rakers was shown before the live broadcast for the Tagesschau by Guido Cantz and Jan Hofer as part of the show Do you understand fun? tricked.
  • In 2021, it became apparent that the moderators were leaving the faces known from the main edition of the Tagesschau in the direction of private television . For example, long-time chief spokesman Jan Hofer , who presented his last 8 p.m. edition on December 14, 2020, announced his move to RTL ; Linda Zervakis has hosted her own program on ProSieben since September 2021 . The evening news presenter Pinar Atalay left the ARD and moderated since the federal election in 2021 for RTL.

Criticism and quality management

The evening news was the most-watched newscast also the subject of media critical representations. The first critical presentations appeared as early as the 1970s when the Tagesschau was attested in six “empirical theses” that it made it difficult to identify complex problem contexts, that “transparent” information was preferred for the media, that socio-political issues and criticism were only poorly represented, and that there was one strong "governmental" component and the respective government is favored over the opposition.

From 2007, the criticism in the media and letters increased until it reached its climax in December 2016 due to the missing and later made up reporting in the criminal case Maria L. and the criminal case in Kandel 2017 . Criticisms were initially the allegedly unsuitable broadcast format, which did not allow a well-founded presentation, deficiencies in linguistic communication, poor journalistic quality and the alleged instrumentalisation, tabloidization and lack of perspective of the news.

The loyalty to the factual news format, which was even able to assert itself against the strongly boulevardizing tendencies of private programs, is positively highlighted.

The ARD studio usually qualified individual allegations as completely or partially unjustified. The broadcast format and style were justified, among other things, with the orientation towards the audience, the popularity of the program and the need for compressed transmission of selected political messages.

Ulrich Wickert , moderator of the Tagesthemen from 1991 to 2006, complained in the FAZ in 2009 that the public news broadcasts provided “fragmentary information and sloppy phrasing, entertainment seems to be the most important thing”. Especially at the Tagesschau he noticed a "linguistic deterioration". The authors “for the most part no longer even mastered the correct sentence structure”. The “cliché language of politics” and the “shorthand of the news agencies” would be adopted. The television coverage of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the federal election and the formation of a black and yellow cabinet met with strong criticism. Wickert's presentation culminated in the accusation that the makers seem to have lost awareness of their public service mandate to provide a basic supply of political information. The ARD commented in detail on Wickert's criticism and showed that the setting of priorities, the time scope of the topics, the completeness and relevance of the presentation of the topics had been carried out responsibly. Wickert's criticism was partly explained by the fact that he did not take into account the modern unity of Internet presence and television program when reporting: "Internet and television complement each other - that is completely different than in the days of Mr. Wickert." Kai Gniffke pointed on the Tagesschau blog criticism of the lack of awareness of the public service mandate also returned. Regarding the alleged deficiencies in the language, he said: "And I find our texts extremely linguistically accurate, and they also benefit from the accident-free, committed presentation of our presenters."

When he left ARD, the long-time news anchor Marc Bator had commented on the journalistic possibilities and the intelligibility of the news in a similar way to Wickert, but also put this criticism into perspective. The success shows the Tagesschau right.

In 2013, Claus Kleber characterized the style and format of the Tagesschau as outdated. In contrast to the Anglo-American news style, the Tagesschau had hardly any leeway. “Someone like the esteemed colleague Judith Rakers could of course moderate and classify more, but she shouldn't.” In his criticism, he went so far as to compare “dry news reading” with Korean television. Kai Gniffke contradicted the criticism of Kleber: The style of the Tagesschau belongs to the "brand maintenance". The Tagesschau is "successful as it is". In the SZ, Wili Winkler rated Kleber's comparison with Korea as absurd and self-righteous. The “Tagesschau” of the ARD has so far survived the barriers of its speakers without taking any visible damage. "For sixty years it has been broadcasting a strict selection of world news day after day, presented in the official tone of pure objectivity."

Stefan Niggemeier highlighted the aspect of the "ritualization" of the news in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung. The Tagesschau stages its own reality every day, which it is undesirable to doubt. The “corset” of the news is so tight that not even basic questions can be answered. The core of the program seems to have remained the same despite all the packaging changes and, as Georg Diez put it in 2015, offers an “ iconography of power and the apparatus and automatisms”. The viewer's view of a complex development would be narrowed through rituals of commentary to a simple, familiar, and if in doubt, comfortable position. Politics is often reduced to what it does with politicians, with no background, context or contradictions. The “self-embedded journalists” made themselves accomplices in the grand gestures of political staging.

Kai Gniffke promised changes in response to the criticism. So the topics should be reduced in order to be able to present them in more detail.

In February 2015, the Hanns Joachim Friedrichs Prize winner Christoph Maria Fröhder placed the journalistic quality of the Tagesschau and the daily topics at the center of his critical examination. In his opinion, it's mostly "not about journalism or quality, it's just about power". In his “symbolic resignation”, which he wanted to be understood as a signal to younger colleagues, the Tagesschau and Tagesthemen ( especially Tagesschau) accused of an inadequate journalistic environment: “structural agents” in the administration would “stifle” good journalism. Furthermore, career structures and competition between the ARD broadcasters ("small states") prevented a meaningful division of work between correspondent and reporter. In addition to linguistic "loser", Fröhder pointed to quality deficiencies as a result of the structural problems: "Apparently relevant facts would be added one after the other instead of questioning them". Foreign image material is not examined critically enough, there is a risk of being instrumentalized.

In an interview with the Frankfurter Rundschau in 2011, he stated that in addition to a lack of financial resources, manipulation, embedding, a lack of professional training and support and self-thematizing tabloidization, the political and professional attitudes of many journalists are problematic: the public broadcasters have the editorial offices from “politically handpicked journalists” who considered subtle reports dangerous and lighter reports more sympathetic.

To answer the many critical letters and comments, ARD employs nine employees and parts of the social media editorial team. From 2017, a quality manager will accompany the news operation, also due to the increased number of complaints with the Broadcasting Council .

In June 2014, the ARD program advisory board criticized ARD 's reporting on the Ukraine conflict between December 2013 and June 2014. The reporting was "not sufficiently differentiated" and "sometimes gave the impression of bias". In addition, the content “tends to be directed against Russia and the Russian positions”. Among other things, the negotiations on the Association Agreement , the political and strategic intentions of NATO , the constitutional conformity of the deposition of Yanukovych and the international legal status of Crimea were inadequately explained. The editor-in-chief of ARD Thomas Baumann rejected the criticism. In overall shipments in would first "the situation in Ukraine and the causes of the crisis differentiated and broach various aspects [...]." After presentation of the mirrors are "shape and sharpness of the criticism," "unprecedented in the history of ARD ". Benjamin Bidder relativized the statements of the summary of the minutes of the meeting launched by telepolis . This is "formulated much more carefully."

In August 2020, the editor-in-chief of ARD-aktuell admitted errors in the reporting of the explosion in the port of Beirut . Both the evening news and the daily themes treated on the evening of the accident as a lead story theme a new Corona concept of the German Football League (DFL) , rather than the event in Lebanon to report.

In 2021, a Hamas attack on Israel led to massive violence in the Middle East. The reporting was also discussed. On tagesschau.de, for example, there was talk of "Hamas activists", which critics saw as "playing down a terrorist organization". The daily broadcast to a demonstration in Berlin on May 15, 2021 was accused of "completely" suppressing anti-Semitic hatred from participants, "as well as the aggressive attitude of many demonstrators.

Studies and Monographs

Objective and informative format retained since 1960

Overall, the Tagesschau is certified to have remained true to the factual, informative format since 1960. Thus, the Tagesschau had so much success with the audience compared to the news of the private broadcasters that even this would have come closer to the style of the Tagesschau again . To a small extent, “ boulevardizing ” elements from the “human touch area” (celebrities and lifestyle, misfortune and crime) found their way into the public news broadcasts .

Volker Bräutigam: Die Tagesschauer (1982)

The former Tagesschaur editor (1975 to 1985), journalist (until 1996) and staff member of the North German Broadcasting Corporation, union executive (ver.di) and publicist Volker Bräutigam analyzed Die Tagesschauer in his 1982 publication . A Tagesschau editor reports on the structures and working methods of the Tagesschau editorial team amid the tension between economic and political influences. As an active editor, he came to the conclusion that the Tagesschau brought "what confirms and solidifies our political conditions and what the masses controlled by the public media supposedly want to hear and see". Bridegroom identified the causes primarily in the massive influence of party politics on the supervisory bodies, which he also witnessed: “Nobody becomes a director with us who is critical of the parties as a whole. Nobody becomes editor-in-chief unless he has the right connections or the right party membership ”. In a review for Die Zeit, Hans-Heinrich Obuch described the snapshots and information provided by the groom as "clear and precise". They enlightened the reader “Mechanisms of a superficial preparation of news that is up to date”.

Ulrich Schmitz 'long-term study (1990)

The linguist Ulrich Schmitz from the University of Duisburg-Essen examined the language of the Tagesschau in a long-term study in 1990 and came to the conclusion that the linguistic formulas of the Tagesschau had been repeated for many years and this uniformity was the reason for their popularity. The Tagesschau as a kind of “ postmodern concierge ” “gives the viewers consolation through its linguistic continuity.” It gives the safe feeling that all events in the world can be explained. The evening news have found their form of presentation an audience, "... that listens without being able to remember and understand." She creates, according to Schmitz, taking up a quote from Enzensberger, "'fictitious satisfaction of the need for meaning' (Enzensberger)".

Gewis Institute and SZ on language form and sustainability (2008)

After a Gewis study from 2008, only twelve percent of viewers every word and every message would in the Tagesschau understand. According to the result of another survey by the Süddeutsche Zeitung , the problem is not the lack of intelligibility of the language as such, but its density, which overburdens the viewer. According to the Federal Agency for Civic Education 2012, "it has been a problem since the 1960s that only a small proportion of reports (between 20 and 40 percent) can still be named by viewers immediately after the broadcast from memory." This raises the question of the importance that the news really has for the orientation of people.

Otto Brenner Study on Business Journalism (2010)

The study by the Otto Brenner Foundation by Hans-Jürgen Arlt and Wolfgang Storz from March 2010 on the subject of “Economic Journalism in Crisis - The Mass Media Dealing with Financial Market Policy” looked at, among other things, the way in which ARD worked from spring 1999 to autumn 2009 Tagesschau formats and topics of the day . The study comes to the conclusion that - in contrast to the leading print media - they failed not only in terms of their craftsmanship (as in previous years), but also when faced with the substantive challenges of reporting on the crisis itself. The editorial team worked “poorly in terms of perspectives”, the focus was on the officially most important actors: representatives of the German government first and foremost, bank representatives, a few academics and their points of view. The study comes to a hard assessment: "This is a narrowing of perspective with an enormous loss of reality, which can be classified as a serious journalistic error."

The ARD was also accused at times of exercising the New Social Market Economy initiative too large and covert influence on broadcasts of the ARD.

Walter von Rossum's accusation of "certificate of objectivity" (2007)

In 2007 Walter van Rossum presented the allegedly purely informative service as a myth and complained about the alleged adoption of trivial, predigested information. He also advocated the thesis of a kind of “voluntary synchronization of the media”. The mechanisms of homogenizing opinions at ARD-aktuell, however, are not based on specifications, but are the result of "daily fine-tuning" in conferences and meetings in which the language regulations for the current topics are developed. It is about a "semblance of objectivity, which should be achieved by approaching the political center as closely as possible." According to Nils Klawitter in Spiegel , Rossum is in the public service news bastion with an almost autistic narrative ritual. What remains is a "stereotypical preparation of pseudo-news that degrades the viewer to an onlooker and in the end conceals everything in a subtle incomprehensibility." Marco Bertolaso , the head of Deutschlandfunk news, criticized Rossum's presentation and the too narrow database (one broadcast day). In her review in Die Zeit , Insa Wilke , like the reviewer for Spiegel , came to the conclusion that Rossum's criticism was polemically exaggerated overall, but he succinctly described the use of “blind images” that reproduced stereotypes without any gain in knowledge.

The Force at Eight (2017)

The publication Volker Bräutigams with Friedhelm Klinkhammer Die Macht um Acht (2017) is dedicated to the illustration “that the Tagesschau machine is neither reliable nor neutral and by no means serious. It is little different than fifteen minutes of state radio. ”(Preface) In the papers for German and international politics , Daniela Dahn emphasizes in her review The Echolot der Macht , the authors argued very precisely when they complained about violations of program guidelines. The possibility of audience participation in the form of criticism turns out to be a farce in view of the inviolability of the Broadcasting Council . But it is probably more than just a brazen claim to infallibility, as the authors suspected, but in Dahn's opinion it may be even worse: “The program editors would certainly rather report on explosive backgrounds than repeat the same clichés . But only if they - perhaps even unconsciously - use these clichés can they count on recognition. Yes, one gets the impression that they are listening almost exclusively to the echo sounder of the hierarchies that support them - in addition, interested viewers and readers do not belong to the target group at all.
