David/Ray,

es wäre einfacher für uns, bei der Namenssuche behilflich zu sein, wenn wir wüssten, welche Zielrichtung der Blog in etwa verfolgt. Geht es um die Bundestagswahl 2006, oder bleibt das Thema Deutschland - Amerika: biased media, oder Deutschland - Amerika: transatlantische Freundschaft?

Im übrigen freue ich mich über Eure Entscheidung; denn uns Deutschen geht es doch eigentlich darum, Deutschland zu verändern, und nicht etwa in erster Linie darum, Amerika unsere Mißstände, an denen die Amerikaner ohnehin nichts ändern können, zu klagen.

Wünsche Euch sehr viel Erfolg und alles Gute.

1. how about a name based on cowboy capitalismus?
2. Leidkultur?
3. Deutschland/Meckern über alles?

David and Ray, I am full of praise for you. Keep up the good work!

Kind regards

Scuderia Austria

@ ralph,

We want a site similar to Davids Medienkritik in German. It will not be focused on any single event like the 2006 election.

---Ray D.

Name suggestion: Schwarze Schafe unter den deutschen Journalisten

Name suggestion: Davids Medienkritik auf Deutsch

@ David,

"Davids Medienkritik" ist ein vortrefflicher Markenname.

Gute Idee. Habe schon mal hier gemailt, dass alles auch in Deutsch kommen sollte, sonst lesen es die betroffenen Journalisten gar nicht.

Ich würde Davids Medienkritik lassen, weil der Name schon bekannt ist!

I think "Davids Medienkritik" is still the best name for both sites, but if it really has to be different, then I would suggest "Rays Medienkritik".

Keep the suggestions for names going! This is helping.

---Ray D.

How about Media-Cop, but in german of course.

How about "media critique"? Something French-sounding, German journalists will like it. (Or "The Post-Modernist's Corporate Media Critiquè", if you want to appeal to academics, too.)

How about "MEDIENKRITIK ONLINE"?

@ Scuderia Austria:

That is actually what I had settled upon: "Medienkritik Online". It is not fixed in stone and I would like to hear some more ideas...

---Ray D.

1. Anti-SPON
2. Goetzendaemmerung
3. Kritik der reinen Unsinn
4. Gerhard Schroeder is a stinker!
5. Deutschland erwache!
6. Blogologie
7. Davids Netzwerke
8. Deutsches Karneval

How about "Kritik am Schwachsinn deutschsprachiger Journalisten"?

"How about "media critique"? Something French-sounding, German journalists will like it. (Or "The Post-Modernist's Corporate Media Critiquè", if you want to appeal to academics, too.")

Although I absolutely love this suggestion, I think Medienkritik Online is the best name.

@Jim Doherty

sounds like: Medien-Streife

Davids Medienkritik vs. Goliath Deutsche Presse

Vier Vorschläge:

1. German Observer
2. Medienkritik AG
3. Medienkritik Alliance
4. German Viewpoint

english site:medienkritik.com
german site: medienkritik.de

Wie wäre es mit "Medienkritik weiß-blau, hurra und helau"?

Medienkritik East, Medienkritik West?

@Mike H.

In Germany East and West is a strong synonym for East Germany (former GDR) and West Germany, BRD.

hey, zensor!
vorschlag 3, "mediendämmerung" ist ernst gemeint!

Ich glaube Medienkritik Online klingt gut. Meine persönliche Meinung ist, dass der Name nicht unbedingt provokativ oder pompös sein muss. Er soll sachlich und kurz den Inhalt des Blogs wiedergeben.

Europe and America have a different history. Hence the different political opinions. Especially when it comes to war. The memories of the last war are still fresh on the old continent. But this blog is directed at young ppl. Maybe it has a chance that way.

Perhaps a German variant of "Straighten Up and Fly Right" would be helpful.

Hmm
Beacon of truth

fair and blanced

Reality Dose

For the rest of the story

Imprimis which BTW means in the first place.

To express (one's thoughts or feelings, for example), especially forcefully

Am not sure how that would translate but it might not need a translation.

Hi David, Hi Ray

I really like your blog but I think there´s a reason why it transformed into english ( though I didn´t read it then): There are just not enough of us who really think that there is something wrong with the german media. Most people accept all the biased reporting as the truth and consider any opposing views as anti-intellectual stupidities. And if there are people who critizise the media it is much more popular to go radical (e.g. Attac) or spread conspiracy theories than to call the german media bunch what it really is: A pack of aged self declared revolutionaries lost in memories and stigmatas of 68 calling themselves "intellectual elite".
Anyway, I wish you luck with your new blog. Names that came to my mind were things like "Mediawatch", "Schlagseite", "Spiegelei"(red-framed), "Neues Europa" or "Paralleluniversum"(that´s what I feel like sometimes) but finally I think you should keep the current name or do the ...-online thing.
Think about a banner on my website. You´ll get a free link, anyway. Also I´d like to contribute some things sometimes. Could give me a hint what to do?
Saludos de Alex

"Medienkritik Online" - ein Stück deutsche Wertarbeit. ;-)

"Medienkritik Online" is certainly lame, if not entirely vapid. Be distinctive, as well as unique, without being pretentious or smug. I think "Paralleluniversum" (as proposed by Alex is something that both German speakers and English speakers can recognize as being meaningful. The two languages are from the same branch of the larger tree.

February 1, 2005 will be a good day for Austria, Germany, Liechtenstein, Switzerland and the United States. :-)

Ich muss sagen, dass es gerade der bisherige Mischmasch aus Deutsch und Englisch in den Kommentaren war, der mein Interesse für diesen Blog geweckt hat. Irgendwie fände ich es schade, das wieder auseinander zu reißen... Wie habt ihr das eigentlich geplant- soll der deutsche Blog eigenständig sein, oder bloß eine Übersetzung? Im letzteren Fall könnte man ja alle Kommentare trotzem in einen einzigen, zweisprachigen Kommentarteil zusammenführen.

How about/wie wär's mit "Medienspiegel"?

Suggestions:

1. Spiegel Beagle
2. Deutsche Idiotarian Watch


More coming up later. I am at work right now.

Der Schwarze Blog

My friends. If I could my $ would be flowing, however my kids need books and food. Poor me, teaching in parochial schools for less than 30 per year. 3 kids in university and I working on my master's.

I will however do my part in spreading the word!

I'm sorry I missed the beginnings of this blog as well. The idea of a German Medienkritik is great, because it won't sound as much like "another Americans bitching at Germans site". Which means I can recommend it to my friends here in the BRD.

I like "Medienkritik Online" - it is simple and sounds serious (lame, if you will). It may be that the zielpublikum are younger people, but my fellow pseudo-intellectual Germans will dismiss anything too funny as "unseriös".
My 2 cents...

@ Ray,

"We are also looking for German newspapers and publications to advertise our site", you wrote. How about the "Bayernkurier"? URL of this newspaper: http://www.bayernkurier.de/

Isn't it a bit redundant to call an online blog "online." Plus, how does this name (Medienkritik Online) distinguish itself from its English version, Davids Medienkritik.

You've got a bit of a branding problem.

I love it:

English "Davids Medienkritik" == German "Medienkritik Online"

Ihr koenntet fuer den Filmverleih amerikanische Filmtitel uebersetzen, haha.
Oder Telekomrechnungen aus dem Denglischen uebersetzen...

Sehr positiv, Medienkritik auf Deutsch! Müsste gleich erfolgreich werden. Das ist es, was wir brauchen, einen kritischen Blick für die Lügen und Manipulationen der deutschsprachigen Pesse, wobei ich sehr hoffe, dass David auch beim Lesen von Schweizerzeitungen hie und da das Stirnrunzeln überfällt.
RonaldCH

Ja, so sollt ihr den deutschsprachigen Blog nennen: "David's Stirnrunzeln".

Wha'about 'deutschlandhasser.typepad.com'?
Sounds really good to me.

Note from David: I guess the term "Deutschlandhasser" (Germany hater) is deservedly reserved for the German Left who up until recently (before their antiamerican campain started in earnest in 2001) desperately tried to paint Germany as a haven for right wing neonazi antisemits.

David,

You might want to be careful both now but also in the future. EU legislation regulating criticism(under various terms) of certain groups, people(s) and policies appears to be gaining favorable political consideration with space for expansion.

David and Ray,

I would suggest "David and Ray's Deutschemedienkritik"

Congrats on the the great site here and the new one in the near future. May God bless you both for exposing the hate and propaganda in the German media.

Blog on, blog on, blog on my brothers!
