German Media Watchdog Instructs Press to Censor Ethnicity and Religion in Reports

German Media Watchdog Instructs Press to Censor Ethnicity and Religion in Reports, by Breitbart.

Germany’s media regulator has revised its code of conduct on reporting whether crime suspects belong to an ethnic or religious minority after complaints the previous guidance was unclear.

The German Press Council – a voluntary, industry-run body – says information about a person’s ethnicity shouldn’t be published “unless there is a justified public interest in doing so.”

So there. It’s official in some places.
