Journalism in Germany today has very different segments and orientations. Thus, it is often difficult to distinguish the "classical" journalism, that focuses on stories and reports, from other objectives such as public relations, marketing, advertising or pure entertainment. We can only list here a certain range of sources. Please note that most of the sources and references listed are in German only. If information is offered in foreign languages, it is often only a shortened text of the information in German.
