Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Aa for Germany - I suspect a poll of publishers and editors, who define narratives, would show that their sympathies are far more right leaning than those of journalists who usually have to write what they're told to.

Probably to focus the poll only on the economy department of a newspaper would already give you a more right wing result than including the feulliton and the klatsch section.
But my impression is largely, that the narratives are taken from the politicians, less self created - and that there are little narratives around at all.

is being replaced with corporate control of curricula
That seems to be for profit.

health care is heading in the same direction
As well for profit?

infrastructure is mostly mismanaged by the private sector at vast public expense
Seems somebody wanted to make profit with the initial privatisation.

tax rates place the burden of taxation on the poorest earners
For profit - of those who pay the lobbyists, which not to tend to be the poor.

tax avoidance by the rich is endemic
Never seen something that clearly done for profit.

the press collude to cover up the true state of things with scare stories about racism and missing blonde girls.
Nobody told them, that the country is looted. That would be the job of the party head of the labour party. Hey, but after more than a decade of labour gov't it may fall back to himself negatively.
