On March 16 at 9:05 p.m. on ORF 2; guest in the studio: Labor Minister Martin Kocher
Vienna (OTS) – Susanne Schnabl will present the “Report” on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 at 9:05 p.m. on ORF 2 with the following topics:
The federal government is arguing about the vaccination strategy, the vaccination officer has to go and further easing steps are postponed – the situation is tense. The reason for this is the increasing number of infections, which is also noticeable in hospitals. Contact tracing also has its limits. Vorarlberg, on the other hand, is sticking to its opening steps – restaurants and cafés will receive their first guests from Monday. Yilmaz Gülüm and Sophie-Kristin Hausberger report on the current situation.
Minister of Labor Martin Kocher is a guest in the studio.
Youth in crisis
The coronavirus has paralyzed everyday school life for months, instead of frontal lessons, the young people had to acquire most of the learning material at home. There is now talk of the “lost generation”, which is learning less than the previous generations. Even those who are currently looking for a job face major challenges. Compared to the previous year, youth unemployment has risen by a quarter. Sophie-Kristin Hausberger spoke to young people who talked about how the crisis is affecting their lives.
The federal government’s anti-corona measures are meeting with increasing resistance. There is hardly a weekend on which there is no demonstration. There are concerns on many levels: encroachment on fundamental rights, prohibited demonstrations, mask requirement or the planned renewed tightening of the Covid Measures Act. Right-wing to right-wing extremist groups are trying to coax the protests. A report by Martin Pusch and Stefan Daubrawa.
Journalism or PR?
Politicians are now relying more on their own news channels, so-called “Owned Media” – recently the new party medium “To the matter”, which is linked to the ÖVP parliamentary club, was launched, media such as the one founded in 2019 by ex-politician Peter Pilz “ZackZack” want to establish themselves on the domestic market with criticism of the government and investigative work. Are we experiencing a renaissance in party media? What is journalism, what is political PR? And what does this development say about the political media world? An analysis by Julia Ortner.
