Show Summary Details


This final chapter recapitulates the various effects of Germany's partisan press on journalists, politicians, civil servants, and the wider public by drawing on the findings of media science. It emphasizes the role of the press in providing contemporaries with a slanted picture of parliamentary democracy, which led to a political climate favourable to all anti‐democratic parties. The press helped to bring about Hitler, and with Hitler the end of press freedom. But with or without Hitler, it argues, the end of press freedom was coming in the early 1930s anyway.
