German media follow the political course of Washington and act as the fourth power, spreading propaganda and promoting negative images of certain countries, German newspaper Freie Welt wrote.

According to the newspaper, German newspapers and television not only promote a negative image of Russia, but also put pressure on businesses and politicians in Germany.

“While German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier make relatively sober press statements on the policy of Vladimir Putin, newspapers, newscasts and news magazines are always ready to use sharp headlines,” the article said.

The website also noted that German media have become a “transatlantic propaganda machine,” which follows the mood of Washington and ignores the interests of Berlin.

“If one takes a look at the articles and publications over the past three years, one will see that the German media do not act as the mouthpiece of Berlin, but rather as a means of external pressure on the federal government, politicians and the public in Germany,” the article said.
