Christiane Meier works as correspondent for the television channel ARD in Berlin. She says: “We have to encourage people not to blindly follow the echo-room news of their own peer group. Or in other words: Use your brain.”



Malte Lehming is the editor of the opinion page of "Der Tagesspiegel". He says: "After the allegedly massive Russian interference into the American election, president elect Donald Trump has to decide, whom to be loyal to - Wladimir Putin or American democracy and American Intelligence services like CIA and FBI."


Daniel Domscheit-Berg, net activist and former spokesperson of Wikileaks, says: “Before we believe anyone, be that WikiLeaks, politicians or secret services, we should always ask for proof and not be satisfied with anything less."
