A shocking portrait of Austria's highest selling newspaper
17 December 2003 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

This is a documentary about the Kronen Zeitung, Austria's most widely read newspaper. There are 8 million people in Austria and over 3 million of them read this newspaper. With such a large readership (in relation to the populace) comes enormous power and the film researches how this power is used or much rather abused.

First of all the Kronen Zeitung is extremely racist and pushes this opinion on its readers by portraying all foreigners as criminals and scum that needs to be thrown out of the country. In the film several key writers of the newspaper are interviewed and one of them proudly shows the camera-team his books of speeches by Adolf Hitler and his own paintings which are full of Nazi symbols. The film goes on to examine how this racist newspaper may have helped extreme right-wing populist Jörg Haider on his rise to power.

It then goes on to show how every politician in Austria is afraid of the Kronen Zeitung and always checks it first thing in the morning to find out what the editor thinks about certain things. Mr. Dichand, the owner and chief editor of the Kronen Zeitung, comes across as a very powerful (he has regular meetings with the Austrian president) and dangerous man who tries to rule the country through his newspaper.

I was very familiar with the Kronen Zeitung and with its political agenda but this film has revealed many things I had not known. It's scarier than most horror films, that's for sure!
