Who we are and what we want
The media landscape in Switzerland has been in decline for decades. Whereas there were countless independent newspapers in the middle of the 20th century, only five major media companies are still in existence today, which determine the content of our newspapers and in which we rarely find significantly different positions. An independent and comprehensive formation of opinion – essential for direct democracy – is no longer given. We are fed a uniform media mishmash, although freedom of the press is one of our undeniable fundamental rights; the necessary diversity of opinion has been lacking for a long time however.
