The news story I found was about murders in Germany committed by Neo-Nazi's. It was in The Telegraph, and can be found here.
I talked to Blake, a German-American student at UMD, about the article, and he thought that the article was substantive, and didn't really deal with any stereotypes.
One of the main points of the article is that Germans are soul searching after a Neo-Nazi gang committed murders over a 13 year period. Blake thought that that largely encapsulates what Germans are going through. Even in the U.S., he said he's reminded of Nazism often when he mentions his German heritage. He agreed with the article in saying that Germans are becoming less haunted by their past. He thought that the use of quotes helped the story substantiate itself.
The story is substantiated by using quotes from people involved in the situation, including a shop keeper, a relative of a victim and a leader of a controversial far right group in Germany. By using quotes from actual Germans, it's doesn't stereotype, and lets the actual cultural group tell the story
