Adjust font size:

Discontented at German media's biased coverage of the riots in Tibet, a German author has accused German media of hysteria against China.

"The coverage is very biased and unfair to China. Behind this is a China hysteria in Germany where people can only read negative news about China, which I think is wrong," Bernhard Ganter told Xinhua in a telephone interview on Friday.

The Munich-based author and journalist said he has sent several articles to German newspapers to express his opinions, but none of them has got published.

"We have press freedom in Germany, I can write what I want, but it just won't be published if it does not suit those people," said Ganter,. "No dissenting voice can be published. They want to publish what politicians and the major media want, which are one-sided and unfair to China."

In an opinion piece titled "China hysteria", which is posted on his own website, Ganter said: "As long as human rights and press freedom are also trampled upon in Germany, Germany should not call for human rights in other cultures, of which they have no idea."

Ganter also noted in the article that "The Dalai Lama is a very political man, greedy of power and double-faced. There are many sources to prove that. If people want to know the truth, just read."
