Axel Springer, owner of Politico, pushed out Bild editor Julian Reichelt


Ippen had prepared its own investigation into Reichelt’s conduct, but the story was later withheld, prompting four Ippen media group reporters to write a letter that circulated on social media accusing the company of a “breach of trust.” In a statement, the company defended its decision, saying that “as a media group that stands in direct competition to Bild, we must carefully ensure that we avoid the impression we might want to economically harm a competitor,” the AP reported.
