Fake News Effectively Banned at German Meeting


German public broadcaster ARD is considering legal action against the country's right-wing, populist party after it was denied access to an upcoming meeting of European nationalist leaders in Koblenz, western Germany.
A host of other highly regarded German news organizations were also being blocked from the event, including the "Handelsblatt" business daily, the weekly "Der Spiegel" and the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" newspaper, according to Pretzell.
Frank √úberall, the chairman of the German Journalists' Association, said political parties that shape public life have an obligation to allow open press coverage.
