A Der Spiegel reporter and editor who won a CNN "journalist of the year" award was caught fabricating stories out of whole cloth.
From Fox News:
The German magazine Der Spiegel revealed that one of its top award-winning journalists fabricated many of his articles, inventing characters, sources, and their quotes 'on a grand scale' for many years.More from The Daily Mail:
One of the stories that brought Relotius down was the one he wrote about residents of Fergus Falls, Minnesota, a town that overwhelmingly voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.Locals Michele Anderson and Jake Krohn exposed that story in more detail.
The Daily Mail also reported that earlier this month Relotius "was named German Reporter of the Year for a story about a young Syrian boy."
Last year he dropped this propaganda piece titled, "A Syrian Family's Quest to Become German":
TIME Magazine hailed Der Spiegel last year for "having one of the world's biggest fact-checking departments."
Not one of these "fact checkers" caught wind of any of his blatant fabrications. The idea these major news organizations are sitting around fact-checking everything they put out is a total myth. Their editors' main goals are making sure everything they publish suits the narrative.
How many other reporters are running this same scam?
The Guardian has still yet to fess up about what really happened with their fabricated story on Julian Assange meeting multiple times in secret with Paul Manafort!
After this story broke on Thursday, CNN's Brian Stelter responded by saying it's only "Anti-CNN twitter accounts" who are criticizing his propaganda network:
Just because Relotius was CNN's "journalist of the year" doesn't mean CNN had anything to do with it!
