The German public broadcaster apologised for having been late, like most major national media outlets, in mentioning the sexual aggressions on women that occurred on New Year's Eve in Cologne, which has provoked public criticism. 
The fact that the daily 7 pm news on Monday "did not at least mention the incidents was a failing", writes the TV news editorial team on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. Not speaking of it on Monday "was ... clearly an error of judgement," acknowledges ZDF, whose Facebook page is filled with comments from unhappy viewers: "my confidence in (this channel), for which I pay my taxes, is diminishing more and more," writes one them, while are astonished that ZDF "has passed over certain things in silence for some time."
