The Press Council has condemned the free newspaper Heute [Today] for discrimination against Muslims. 66 readers, a record number, complained about an article. Heute is now taking the necessary steps in response to the incident. The authors of the piece, who according to the Press Council seriously infringed the Code of Standards, had already declared their willingness to do unpaid charity work for Islamic organisations.

The judgement came in response to the article: "Jealousy: Man strangles wife in front of nursery school", which appeared in the newspaper on 7 December. The following passage generated uproar:

The driver (43) is the type of man who fortunately tends to live behind the crescent moon. In countries where the backside is higher than the head while praying. They consider their partners to be their property. If they act independently, their pride is wounded and they crack up.

...The two authors, Jörg Michner and Wolfgang Höllrigl, who wrote the bad article, also declared their willingness to do unpaid charity work for Islamic organisations. Even more: In conjunction with the managing board, the editorial team intends to develop an internal editorial code of conduct. New review loops for the editorial team will be introduced for articles written late in the evening and there will be training sessions to heighten the sensitivity of the Heute writing staff, according to the Press Council.

Various government ministers, multicultists and genocide propagandists have praised the editors' reaction to the judgement, but I can't bring myself to translate it.

Why would they be condemned for speaking the truth. Disgraceful.
