Der Spiegel, groot bestrijder van ‘fake news’ bracht zelf jarenlang dit soort ‘nieuws’

Der Spiegel, een Duits weekblad, heeft de laatste jaren fiks op de ‘fake news trommel’ geslagen, echter nu blijkt dat een gelauwerd journalist van dit nieuws en actualiteiten medium, Claas Relotius, jarenlang fake news (nepnieuws) heeft verspreid zowel in de gedrukte versie van Der Spiegel als de digitale versie.

Je had natuurlijk al begrepen dat Der Spiegel buiten de bijdragen van Relotius hele bergen fake news (nepnieuws) heeft gepubliceerd, zoals die over de illegale oorlogen van de VS met hulp van haar oorlogshond de NAVO tegen Afghanistan, Irak, Libië en Syrië.
Hetzelfde geldt ook voor de berichtgeving over Oekraïne, waar Der Spiegel staatsgreep tegen de democratisch gekozen regering van Janoekovytsj ronduit heeft gepropageerd en de door de VS geparachuteerde neonazi-junta van Porosjenko te vuur en te zwaard heeft verdedigd en nog steeds verdedigt.
Het is als met de Joodse man, die meer dan 100 verhalen verzon over antisemitische incidenten in het westen. Veel van deze niet bestaande incidenten werden door de reguliere media gebracht, media waarvan ook Der Spiegel deel uitmaakt. Lullig genoeg blijven de reguliere (massa-) media met een stalen gezicht antisemitisme aan de kaak stellen, ‘antisemitisme’ als kritiek op de terreur van de fascistische apartheidsstaat Israël tegen de Palestijnen.
Uiteraard dient staatsterreur ten allen tijde te worden bestreden door echt onafhankelijke media, of die staatsterreur nu uitgeoefend wordt door de Filipijnse , die van de VS, dan wel de Israëlische overheid. Het is een schande om critici op de terreur die Israël uitoefent, uit te maken voor antisemieten, sterker nog het is zelfs belachelijk!!
Terug naar Der Spiegel: het is de zoveelste ‘fake news roeptoeter’ die plat op de bek is gegaan met…. fake news!! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! ha!

CNN’s “Journalist of the Year” Admits He Faked Stories for Years at Der Spiegel

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor CNN “Journalist of the Year” Admits He Faked Stories for Years at Der Spiegel

Written by Tyler Durden
(ZHE) — German news magazine Der Spiegel has admitted that one of its top reporters has faked stories for several years.
Award-winning journalist Claas Relotius had “made up stories and invented protagonists” in approximately 14 out of 60 articles which appeared both in print and online editions. He had worked for Der Spiegel for seven years, winning numerous awards for his investigative journalism – including CNN’s Journalist of the Year award in 2014, according to the Guardian.
Relotius, 33, tendered his resignation after admitting to the fraud.
Earlier this month Relotius won Germany’s Reporter of the Year (Reporterpreis) honor for his story about a young Syrian boy. Since the report was written, it has emerged that all of the sources were hazy at best, and most of what he wrote was completely fabricated.

The falsification came to light after a colleague who worked with him on a story along the US-Mexican border raised suspicions about some of the details in Relotius’s reporting, having harboured doubts about him for some time.

The colleague, Juan Moreno, eventually tracked down two alleged sources quoted extensively by Relotius in the article, which was published in November. Both said they had never met Relotius. Relotius had also lied about seeing a hand-painted sign that read “Mexicans keep out”, a subsequent investigation found.

Other fraudulent stories included one about a Yemeni prisoner in Guantanamo Bay, and one about the American football star Colin Kaepernick. –Guardian

The Spiegel – which has an online readership of over 6.5 million and sells around 725,000 print copies per month, admitted to the fraud in a lengthy article in which they said they were “shocked” by the discovery – apologizing for anyone deceived by Relotius’s “fraudulent quotes, made-up personal details or invented scenes at fictitious places.”
The magazine added that Relotius had committed journalistic fraud “on a grand scale,” and has described the incident as “a low point in Spiegel’s 70-year history.”
Relotius worked for several other outlets, including Germany’s taz, Welt and the Frankfurter Allgemeine’s Sunday edition.
Relotius told Spiegel that he was deeply ashamed for his fabrications, claiming “I am sick and I need to get help.

Moreno, who has worked for the magazine since 2007, risked his own job when he confronted other colleagues with his suspicions, many of whom did not want to believe him. “For three to four weeks Moreno went through hell because colleagues and those senior to him did not want to believe his accusations at first,” Der Spiegel wrote in an apology to its readers. For several weeks, the magazine said, Relotius was even considered to be the victim of a cunning plot by Moreno.

Relotius cleverly rebuffed all the attacks, all of Moreno’s well-researched pieces of evidence … until there came a point when that didn’t work any more, until he finally couldn’t sleep any more, hunted by the fear of being discovered,” the magazine wrote. –Guardian

After being confronted by a senior editor, Relotius finally caved and admitted to the fraud. In his confession, he said “It wasn’t because of the next big thing. It was fear of failing. My pressure to not be able to fail got ever bigger the more successful I became.
