News stories involving migrants or descendants of immigrants are treated in such a way as not to "play into the hands of the extreme right" by concealing the origin of the criminals in many cases. Thus, it is only incidentally, or in regional media, that the first names or even the names of the defendants appear. The so-called "far-right" media systematically cross-check the names of migrant or immigrant attackers.
