Politicians must always have something to say. But talking is dangerous. Every utterance can be taken out of context and deliberately misinterpreted by political opponents. Nothing is as simple as one would like, but explaining complex matters is a unique challenge.
Anyone who wishes to succeed in politics learns early on what voters supposedly want to hear. And that may include half-truths.
In “Was Politiker nicht sagen”, political veteran Gregor Gysi explains how communication works in politics, why elected representatives can’t be nominated according to professionalism, why he speaks mainly to the audience in talk shows and the differences between talk shows and print media. A fact- and anecdote-enriched look behind the scenes of the political stage.
Moderation: Marie-Christine Knop
