The following video is not interesting in and of itself, but it is indicative of the way German state-sponsored television directs the political opinions of its viewers into acceptable channels.
Nash Montana, who translated the clip for subtitling, includes this introduction
This is an excerpt from a long-running series called “Lindenstrasse” from the German public broadcaster ARD. The show is extremely liberal, and this clip (from episode #1567 entitled “Flight”, February 7, 2016) is an excellent example of how the ARD manipulates its viewership — which has been in the millions for this show every Sunday night since 1985.
Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

|0:20||“Oh come on, that’s such an old story.”|
|0:23||“But it is so indicative, isn’t it?”|
