Broadcaster ProSieben sells assets as owners mull exit from the firm

first_img German broadcaster ProSieben has sold its Belgian and Dutch assets for €1.23bn (£1.1bn), allowing it to pay down debt ahead of a possible exit by its owners.ProSieben, controlled by private equity firms KKR and Permira, said yesterday it has sold the unit to a consortium led by Finnish media group Sanoma. The sale comes four years after Munich-based ProSieben bought SBS Broadcasting as it tried and failed to create a pan-European rival to RTL Group.The deal saddled the German group with a pile of debt, which stood at €3.02bn by the end of 2010, and led chief executive Thomas Ebeling to start a strategic review. ProSieben aims to improve its ratio of net debt to EBITDA to 1.5-2.5 in the short to medium term, from 3.3 times at the end of last year. Cleaning up its balance sheet is seen as a precondition to a potential exit by owners KKR and Permira.The two private equity companies own about 88 per cent of ProSieben’s common shares and 18 per cent of preferred shares, which lack voting rights, via investment vehicle Lavena Holding. Only the preferred stock is currently listed.

Because of the uneven platform, rooms of different function need to be properly allocated, with living room on the higher elevation and the bedrooms the lower. The traditional stone walls are ingeniously used as ties to connect each relatively independent spaces in order to meet requirements for function and aesthetics. The enclosed living area thus blurs the solar orientation of traditional architectures, allowing the natural light to enter from the west and conforming to the distinct spirit of the old house.Save this picture!© Lian HeThe roofs of the living room and bedrooms are made of steel, seeming inconsistent with people’s expectation of traditional village houses which normally constructed by wood or bricks. In fact, steel-made roof, often ignored, is aligned with modern construction of village since its advantages are widely appreciated. Besides, the rectangular roof of the living room contrasts the triangular counterpart of the bedrooms and therefore evokes a sharp feeling of spatial relation. Furthermore, the side facing the yard is replaced by large glass panes, neutralizing the spatial difference between indoors and outdoors as well as permitting daylight.Save this picture!© Lian HeSave this picture!© Lian HeSave this picture!© Lian HeThe centered tower with multiple functions serves the purpose of extended visual effect.Save this picture!© Lian HeThe shed in the backyard with wooden pillars and beams, and grey tiles from neighbors, respecting the traditional roof truss ratio (the height of the ridge is 30% of the horizontal length), lives to people’s expectation of village house. Save this picture!© Lian HeSave this picture!© Lian HeConstructionThe traditional bricklayers, stonemasons and carpenters are fully involved in the construction, and ironworkers and welders who represent the new blood of the construction also play their part.

French regulator objects to bodies in TV report on Mali atrocities

first_imgNews June 8, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Organisation RSF helps coordinate support for French journalist kidnapped in Mali May 5, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is astounded by the warnings that France’s Higher Council for Broadcasting (CSA) has given to the state-owned national TV broadcaster, France Télévisions, over a report on France 2’s “Envoyé Spécial” programme about the situation in Mali.The warnings have set a disturbing precedent for the entire media profession.Entitled “Atrocities in Mali?” and labelled as “not for viewers under the age of 10,” the report was about atrocities by the Malian armed forces since the start of the French intervention. Broadcast after 10 p.m. on 7 February, the 22-minute report showed human bodies for less than a minute.The CSA issued a statement on 14 February which it described as a “firm warning to those in charge of France Télévisions.” It accused Envoyé Spécial of broadcasting “repeated and particularly insistent shots of the bodies of dead persons without any corresponding analysis, and liable to constitute a violation of human dignity.”After meeting with France Télévisions executives, the CSA issued a second, more nuanced statement on 26 February acknowledging the broadcaster’s “desire to draw viewers’ attention to tragic events and the identity of those responsible.” But it reiterated its warning about “the repeated and excessive presentation of the remains of human bodies, which was hard to bear, especially for young viewers over the age of 10.”“Bodies are shown on TV every day, so why is the CSA suddenly offended by sequences totalling just tens of seconds in length in an investigative report on Mali,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire asked. “Reporting has been closely controlled since the start of the French intervention, as we have already complained.“Isn’t the CSA using the protection of ‘young viewers over the age of 10’ as a pretext for protecting a military operation’s public relations? Is it an independent regulatory body’s job to make recommendations to the French media about their coverage of the fighting in Mali?”Envoyé Spécial editors and presenters Guilaine Chenu and Françoise Joly told Reporters Without Borders that they were “shocked” by the warnings, which “create a precedent” and place the media “in a situation of legal uncertainty.”“The CSA is not longer taking issue with this footage as such, just its length,” they said. “The disputed shots constitute 45 seconds of a 22-minute report. Is it the CSA’s job to determine the length of shots? What is its job? To invite itself into editing rooms? We can discuss child protection labelling with the CSA, for example, but definitely not how long shots last.“Our report was not intended to be sensational. It was the fruit of four weeks of reporting in Mali. We thought carefully about each shot and each word. The images we showed constitute evidence. Their journalistic significance is historic and they may one day be used in court.”They added that they did not get any letters from viewers objecting to the report’s content.

RSF criticizes Germany’s ban of leftist website as constitutionally questionable

first_imgNews March 30, 2021 Find out more News German interior minister Thomas de Maizière © THIERRY CHARLIER / AFP GermanyEurope – Central Asia Online freedomsInternational bodies Freedom of expression News Reporters Without Borders criticizes as constitutionally questionable the ban announced by Germany’s ministry of interior against linksunten.indymedia, an online portal deemed left-wing extremist by security authorities. June 2, 2021 Find out more German interior minister Thomas de Maizière announced the website’s ban last Friday, invoking the law of associations by classifying its group of operators as an association which he declared dissolved. De Maizière called the portal “the most influential online platform of violent left-wing extremists in Germany”, saying the latter had used the website for years for “spreading posts with criminal and anti-constitutional contents”. His ministry cited examples such as calls for violent protests and claims of responsibility for arson attacks posted on the platform, including in the run-up to violent protests against the G20 summit in Hamburg in early July. Other examples included calls for acts of violence targeting police officers and dissenters as well as repeated post giving detailed instructions for building “Molotov cocktails” and time-controlled arson bombs. Radical offshoot of international anti-globalist network Linksunten.indymedia is a radical offshoot of Indymedia, an international network of anti-globalization media activist founded after the 1999 WTO summit in Seattle to help create an alternative media public. The network spread to more than 60 counties including Germany, where became a discussion platform for various leftist alternative groups. After internal disputes, a group of more radically-minded activists in the South-West of Germany split off and created – the name “linksunten” (“bottom left”) alludes both to the group’s geographical origins on the German map and to the leftist underground to which some of its supporters felt drawn. The portal was used by activists to coordinate protests against racism or nuclear waste transports, to discuss the political consequences of a series of Neonazi terror attacks or to exchange experiences, opinions and analyses. Activists also used it as a platform to track right-wing extremism in Germany. One recent post there was a protocol of an internal WhatsApp chat group of the populist AfD party that was widely discussed in German media because it included radical views such as calls for rigorous media controls or to overthrow the political system. Contributors usually wrote their posts anonymously, but according to the interior ministry they were moderated by the website’s administrators afterwards. Watched by security authorities German authorities had been watching the website’s activities for some time. Some media reports quoted security sources as saying they had had difficulties identifying the portal’s operators due to the latter’s secretive ways of working. They also said numerous criminal complaints had been made because of criminal content on the website, but the investigations had to be dropped because the authors could not be identified. However, as last week’s operation shows, authorities have by now been able to identify several alleged administrators of the website. It is therefore not evident why they neither summoned these to delete the incriminated posts nor sued them, choosing instead to ban the website as a whole. G20 accreditation withdrawals based on faulty or illegally stored information According to unsourced media reports, two of the three supposed administrators of the website were among the 32 journalists whose accreditations were withdrawn during the G20 summit in Hamburg last month, and at least one of them was considered by security authorities to be part of the “pro-violence left-wing extremist scene”. However, the reference to the G20 summit raises questions because at least ten of the 32 accreditation withdrawals have by now been shown to be based at least partly on either false assumptions or on information illegally stored in police databases such as accusations of criminal acts that have long been cleared in court. After ARD TV published its findings on these cases on Thursday, the interior ministry admitted that in at least four cases the decision to withdraw the accreditation was wrong. “It is becoming more and more clear that during the G20 summit German security authorities restricted some journalists’ ability to work and stigmatized them as supposed perpetrators of violence based on faulty and in parts illegally stored information,” said RSF Germany’s Mihr. “The Federal Office of Criminal Investigation obviously stores information of questionable security relevance on a large scale as it thinks best. The federal government now has to explain quickly how many journalists have been affected and how this practice is to be stopped.” Germany is ranked 16th among 180 countries on RSF’s annual World Press Freedom Index.
