Rückblick: Interview-Workshop mit Tim Sebastian
"You never ask what. When you go in and you're prepared for it, you are supposed to know what. You're supposed to know what they've done, what they think about this. [...] You don't ask them what, you ask them why."
"Don't do openers. Fire right between the eyes."
"The trend, the fashion in a lot of countries now is, that [...] an interviewer should seek to understand politicians. They have a very hard live, they have to get up in the morning and go to work. [...] We need more than that."
"I'm advocating that journalists are watchdogs in society and start behaving like watchdogs. I think too many people in our profession behave like lapdogs instead of watchdogs."
"The way you formulate the question matters. That decides, which answers you get."
"You don't do deals with politicians. You simply don't give them the questions in advance. That's a red line you don't cross. You never ever give them the questions in advance."
"I am constantly trawling for newspapers, magazines, talking to people, to get nuggets of information [...] I am constantly looking for those nuggets that make a difference."
"You zero in exactly on what the problem is. [...] You don't do generalizations. You backed up your questions with facts. You know the day, and the date and the place, where he said, what he's going to argue about. [...] You can't hold people to account with generalizations."
"I tell you why I think, free speech is important, because it is the basic enabling right, that allows you to ask for all your other rights. If you don't have a voice, if you don't have a free voice, you're never going to get those other rights like independent judiciary, or free elections, or the right for free association, or to demonstrate, or to have your voice heard by the government that rules you."
"I don't think journalist's should be lovable members of society. We don't go into this job to make friends."
"The EU is about to sign an association agreement with Egypt. Despite the fact that there has been no free press for at least two or three years. Recently an Italian student back in January, who was investigating trade unions on behalf of his project at Cambridge University, was actually picked up by the police, tortured and murdered and his body left by the side of the road. That doesn't give us cause for thought in Europe. We're going ahead anyway and sign the association-agreement with Egypt, which will give them green light to do whatever they want with future-students and future-journalists, who go there and decide to investigate something that the government doesn't want investigated. So as you see there is very little sense for principle, when it comes to free speech."
"To me a political interview is an exercise in accountability - absolutely essential for a free society, for a democratic society. Without that you're just going to have corrupt governments, governments which are opaque, which close their doors to their own citizens and where you never find out, what's going on. Tyranny in other words."

"If you're not backing free speech, if it is that unimportant to you, you'll be soon doing without it and you'll miss it, when it's gone."

Münchner Unternehmen legen Entwurf für Urhebervertragsrecht vor
Das „Gesetz zur Stärkung der vertraglichen Stellung von Urhebern und ausübenden Künstlern“ löst auch nach dreizehn Jahren noch Diskussionen darüber aus, ob die vertragliche Stellung von Urhebern und ausübenden Künstlern wirksam gestärkt wurde. Die Verfasser des „Münchner Entwurfs“ sind überzeugt, dass durch die Anpassung einzelvertraglicher Regelungen, den Abschluss einer Reihe von Gemeinsamen Vergütungsregeln und Tarifverträgen sowie durch Rechtsprechung dem Urhebervertragsrecht Geltung verschafft wurde (mehr)
