ZDF Heute Nacht / EF18

Taken from the youtube description: "Short documentary about Eurofurence by German public television. Unfortunately, the editors in charge didn't really "get" the event, and sadly put it all under a rather cynic, hostile undertone. We didn't expect that from a news item on public TV, even though we are talking about late night news. Even RTL was more sensitive in most of their tabloid formats about us.
The item ran in the late night news. Sadly, that seems to be the usual style of hard news reports at the ZDF (and the reporter didn't seem to be too happy having to do a soft news item to begin with.)
EZWolf was quoted grossly out of context, and what he meant intentionally got lost in translation.
The reporter also asked Lucky Tiger to come back in suit after they basically wrapped it up, because she wanted to ask some more questions (for example, she totally forgot to ask his age, where he's living, what he does for a living, despite having talked to him more than an hour before) and get some additional shots of him in suit. Unfortunately,
he just had washed the body suit, so it was soaking wet.
That's pretty amateurish. 
In the end it feels a bit like both the newscutter and the editor were also pissed off by the kind of material they got, that was apparently not what they requested.
Oh well, that's the thing about working with the press: It's either hit or miss"
