Germany’s Media Coverage of the Anders Breivik Trial
The shooting on the Norwegian island of Utøya and the subsequent court trial were closely followed also by German media. The island is just 1,000 kilometers from Germany’s capital Berlin, or 460 miles from Kiel where this article is written. This article, however, will not explore the deed in itself but rather the media coverage and the ethical discussion in Germany about the media coverage of the trial.
The shooting left the German audience shocked and seeing the perpetrator Anders Breivik live in court during the trial was of great interest. Besides the actual court procedures considering whether Breivik was mentally sane or of diminished responsibility, another issue was raised by the media and subsequently also discussed within a media ethics context: his salute on the first day of the trial that was widely repeated in broadcast and print media.

“Smart phones do many things these days: surf the Internet, send e-mail, take photos and video (and — oh, yes — send and receive calls). But one thing they can do that phone companies don’t advertise is spy on you.”
