Top German Journalist Admits Mainstream Media Is Completely Fake: "We All Lie For The CIA"

Tyler Durden's picture

With the increasing propaganda wars, we thought a reminder of just how naive many Westerners are when it comes to their news-feed. As Arjun Walia, of, notes,  Dr. Ulfkotte went on public television stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also adding that noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job.

He recently made an appearance on RT news to share these facts:

I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public.


But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.

It’s important to keep in mind that Dr. Ulfkotte is not the only person making these claims; multiple reporters have done the same and this kind of truthfulness is something the world needs more of.

One (out of many) great examples of a whistleblowing reporter is investigative journalist and former CBC News reporter Sharyl Attkisson.

She delivered a hard-hitting TEDx talk showing how fake grassroots movements funded by political, corporate, or other special interests very effectively manipulate and distort media messages.

Another great example is Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy award winning journalist at CC, who said that they are routinely paid by the US government and foreign governments to selectively report and even distort information on certain events. She has also indicated that the government has editorial control over content.

Ever since Operation Mockingbird, a CIA-based initiative to control mainstream media, more and more people are expressing their concern that what we see in the media is nothing short of brainwashing.

This is also evident by blatant lies that continue to spam the TV screen, especially when it comes to topics such as health, food, war (‘terrorism‘), poverty, and more.

Things have not changed, in fact, when in comes to mainstream media distorting information and telling lies. They have gotten much worse in recent years, in fact, so it is highly encouraging that more people are starting to see through these lies, even without the help of whistleblowers like Dr. Ulfkotte.

One great example is the supposed ‘war on terror,’ or ‘false flag terrorism.’ There are evenWikileaks documents alluding to the fact that the United States government planned to “retaliate and cause pain” to countries refusing GMOs.

Mainstream media’s continual support of GMOs rages on, despite the fact that a number of countries are now banning these products.

The list of lies goes on and on. It’s time to turn off your T.V. and do your own research if you are curious about what is happening on our planet. It’s time to wake up.

My favorite propaganda piece is the Interacvtive Brokers commercial on CNBC all the time where she walks in and says, 'did you hear about the NATO plane shot down by Russia? Right on the freakin heels of NATO shooting down a Russian plane. It makes me wanna hurl.

Udo Ulfkotte is and has been for quite a while a very competent journalist, a rare gem in the controlled German propaganda media.

A major component of a fascist regime is disseminating government propaganda through controlled mechanisms.  This is exactly that and we are under fascist rule.

My favorite recent moment was in 2008 when TSwasHTF bigtime.  Erin Burnet was on CNBC and she started the show by saying:  "So now that the stock market has corrected, let's talk about what shape the recovery may look like."

It was the most disturbing piece of journalism that I ingested for quite some time, only because it was clear to me at the time that we had no recovery occuring and she was directly lying on national TV with the sole intent of swaying public opinion in favor of an illusion and away from reality.  That's freakin' sick.

CNBC is the comedy network on drugs.

The way that AIPAC runs America, the same way Mossad runs the CIA.

Just read the protocols of the World Jewish congress and know they are out to control the media.

Recently Broadcom the cable giant, owned by the Jewish Roberstson family,  bought out MSNBC.  Same NBC that was paying Chelsea Clinton 400K a year to stay home and fart.   a slide of Jewish ownership of media.

Now watch I will be called anti semetic for using the word Jew.

COSMOS's picture

One more thing the head of the World Jewish Congress, Ronald Lauder took advantage of his banking ties and bribed Eastern Euro politicians after collapse of Berlin wall to buy up for pennies on the dollar many TV stations throughout Eastern and Central Europe to duplicate the stranglehold on info they have in the west.

CME is a media and entertainment company operating leading businesses in primarily six Central and Eastern European markets: Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Romania, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia. We operate 36 television channels broadcasting to approximately 50 million people across our six markets. We also develop and produce content for our television channels. Content is also distributed to third parties, both within our region and globally.

If this is not a concerted effort by the Jews in AIPAC and World Jewish Congress to control the flow of information I dont know what is.  They are replicatiing this on the internet with google and facebook etc.  Jews giving media attention and pumping up companies for other jews.  Its a perpetual self tightening nooose for the goys.

Now given the very liberal press coverage in Europe regarding the muslim invasion I can only say a few things.  The Liberal polticians of Europe are left wing multicultural radicals out to destroy European cultures so they can rule their mega state united under Islam.  We saw news suppression by their state run media outlets.

Also the Saudis have hundreds of billions of dollars invested with the World Jewish Congress affiliated banks.  Semites working with semites.  We have seen that in history a Jewish person will committ great crimes against his own for the sake of money.  This is also a move to force Jews in Europe to relocate to Israel.  I am sure the agreement between Saudis and Tel Aviv is that if the Jews help the invasion of Europe with their media coverage...The Erstatz Israel will become a reality if Syria is dismembered. That is another reason Israel was treating ISIS terrorists in their hospitals. The agreements for partitions I am sure had been worked out between USA, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, and Turkey.  Too bad the Iranians and Hezbollah and Russia didnt sign up to it.

Let's be concise in our language...

The "elites" are the Debt-Money Monopolists and their fascist mega-corporate cabal that finance and control every major institution in the Western World.

Did you know that Napoleon properly identified the Debt-Money Monopolists?

“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.”
? Napoléon Bonaparte

Did you know that Hitler correctly identified the effects of the Debt-Money Monopolists, but fell victim to their deflection program and blamed powerless ordinary Jewish people for the tyranny that emanated directly from the Debt-Money Monopolist cabal that includes European Royalty, the Rothschilds, and the Rockefellers.

Because of this, Hitler actually made business deals with Debt-Money Monopolist corporate fronts like IBM, Ford, Harriman and Harriman, and Standard Oil.

He hired and enriched the Debt-Money Monopolists through their corporate fronts... enriching the very people that eventually fire bombed the Germany he claimed to love (yeah, only his version, though - he was a tyrant, too!).

Details matter, people. Details matter.

I agree on that. Unfortunately, the Sheeple prefer to live in a fairytale in which the King / president / state is the good guy and they lap up every bit of disinfo as if it's The Ultimate Truth. 

Blue pill Red pill 

Ghordius's picture

a small correction: A) most people prefer to live in a magical fairytale. B) where there are good guys battling bad guys

what do we have here? a western journalist moaning about western MSM... on RT

remember that American girl working for RT and moaning about Russian propaganda in the the program, and quitting while doing it? the same but inverse act

both are very good sources of journalism, and both are engaged in a defamation and propaganda war in select sectors and on select themes

that blue pill / red pill thing is a fantasy, a magical wish: one pill, and in one moment you have The truth, One that explains everything, the Ultimate Truth

there is no such thing, but that's the exact reason why propaganda works. it supplies... simple

well, the simplest I can come with is this: both western MSM and RT bring the truth... and lies

if there is one ultimate truth about them is that they are battling in several propaganda wars

oh, and Turkey's Erdogan just used diplomatic channels to ask Germany to do something about some things that the German media is saying about him in a satirical programme... about Turkish freedom of the press

perhaps even simpler: most people want to believe. not know, not to entertain a thought without accepting it yet until tested or veryfied, just plain... believe

COSMOS's picture

Ghordius dont forget our 'freedom of the press' here where its anti semetic to comment on your increasing enslavement.

Let us not forget the words of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the most esteemed Jewish Rabbi for whom two million turned out for his funeral...

Here is what he said in his own words...

For instance, in 2010 he said in a weekly Saturday night sermon that the sole purpose God put non-Jews on earth was to be servants to Jews.

"Goyim (gentiles, non-Jews) were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel," he said, according to the Jerusalem Post. "Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. That is why gentiles were created." An "effendi" is a lord, or a master, in Arabic.

They can be war criminals against gentiles. But if you call them out on them being anti-gentile they drown you out with cries of anti-semetism. Same yiddish war criminals like Vicki Nuland aka Nudelman who spent five billion dollars to put in a natz1 regime in Kiev led by Ukrainian Jews. You cant make this stuff up. Yiddish Jews and Natz1s lying in bed again. Last Natz1 they funded was H1ttl6r. Looks like they are it again.

I see thousands of USA veterans without limbs on TV and without adequate healthcare. But Israel gives ISIS terrorists the best healthcare in the world payed for by our money in Jewish Hospitals. Is that not wrong. Is it not wrong that our sons and daughters died or lost their limbs so that Jewish people can frolick and walk around on two legs on the boardwalk in Tel Aviv at and buy Ice Cream and hold it in their two hands. Why are we dying for their security by destroying countries in the middle east like Syria.

While ISIS beheaded our citizens and repeatedly raped that kidnapped young American woman, Israel was giving ISIS the best health care in the world. Are then not stabbing us in the BACK????

Ghordius's picture

COSMOS, I hear you. yes, there is plenty of propaganda trying to make barbarians out of civilized people, and yes, some of them are Jews

but in my view civilization has many enemies, and I see them on all fronts

there is an Ukrainian young woman, an officer of their army that is being held and tried by a Russian tribunal for crimes done in a war zone

you might want to defend the actions of the Russian side about her?

what I see is another attack out of many to what would be civilized rules of war, as done by the US around all things "Guantanamo"

at a certain point, we might get a problem

like a few hundred American or Russian soldiers kept as prisoners by someone else... and denied the same rights of Prisoners Of War that both the US and Russia are denying to many of their enemies

if you battle barbarians, you have to be very careful not to become like them


on the origin of the word "gentiles": it comes from "Gentes" (People) and denoted Roman and Greek tribes following the same (polytheistic) religion. the "Gentile Peace" of Antiquity was something very simple: no wars of religion. Jews were just the first monotheists to poke fun at this concept. Monotheists like us Christians and of course the later Muslims found it even more hilarious, and cherished religious wars

Paveway IV's picture

Good thoughts, Ghordius. But give your enemy the credit they deserve. There's plenty of propaganda tyring to make psychopaths out of civilized people - that's its purpose. The mistake it's easy to make is to focus on their last successful 'project' - the Jews. When people wake up an realize the Likud/Zionists are no different then Wahhabi head-choppers, then this will stop becoming a religious problem. Mis-attribution to religion (or ethnicity or political affiliation) is the only trick psychopaths have, but it works so well. Hardly the tool of a barbarian.

With RT at least you know who the source is and you are able to read it as such. No problem for me. I find them informative and refreshing.

The Western MSM however do claim to be independent.  In the meantime they have been bought and are parroting the products of their Ueberlords.

After the bankers they are #2 for a clean out.

Which way to the beach's picture

A lot can be determined about organisations from their mission statements.

CNN Mission Statement:

"Our mission is to create the finest possible news product and to present hard-breaking, national, and international news, as it unfolds. We deliver unparalleled perspectives across multiple categories, including political, medical, financial, technology, entertainment, and more." (I hope you didn't throw up over your key board)

RT Mission Statement:

"RT provides an alternative perspective on major global events, and acquaints international audience with the Russian viewpoint". RT QUESTION MORE

Which one is more open? Which one asks you to decide.

CNN states it will provide you with the finest.

RT states it will provide an alternative. QUESTION MORE


MSM doesn't like RT for the same reason they don't like Bernie or Donald, they can't control the narrative. When they can't control it, they hide the truth, lie or do both or ignore. Oh look a squirrel.

MSM reporting:

Palmyra fell to those nasty ISIS fellas (without telling viewers our friends are backing them 1000%  and the US didn't lay a finger on them). Oh look at the nasty things they are doing.

Oh look, that nasty Assad is barral bombing and gassing the poor folks in Palmyra with the Russians bombing civilians. Assad and Russia are aiding ISIS.

They even lie about Russian airstrikes by saying the US, France or some other western turd did them, except for the ones they lie about when Russians hit hospitals. Like the time they said Russians bombed Aleppo hospitals when the Russians wern't even in the city that day and the Russians tracked 2 A-10's from Turkey to Aleppo. On top of that, the Russians provided the US with their plans for the day.

I could throw in the referendum on Crimea but you get my point.

How stupid do they think we are?

*German Journalist Blows Whistle On How The CIA Controls The Media *


jwoop66's picture

Cant deny or argue with anything this guy says, but this is a two and a half year old video.  Probably saw it on ZH for the first time shortly after it was released. Why does he not mention, or even better, expose why the euro govt is deliberately importing a different culture and discouraging its own citizens from protesting that invasion.  This is the perpetuation of the meme from two years ago.  How would this be played now?  What has he been doing since his "brave" admission two years ago?  Any current scoops Klaus?   Is he dead?  Well, if not, what has he exposed since then?  A guy who bares his soul and admits how he has been lying all his life should have some pretty good updates now.   No?   


if not..... just more (elite? establishment? psyop.)  Same with the blond at cnn. Another two, three, four year old story.  What new info do they have?  Who wrote this crap?  Tylers?  This doesn't have an author, so I assume it is you who wrote this......scoop.  Why?

Unfortunately you are not familiar what this journalist, Udo Ulfkotte has been writing for many years. I higly recommend his article, written in 2006, in german and english:

BobEore's picture

Your questions are those of an enquiring mind - something which the denizens of the "alternative media" world pride themselves upon having

yet usually leave with the hat check lady upon entering said universe. One of dueling black n white - good guy/bad guy - east vs west storylines modelled it seems, upon the comics and cartoons of youth.

This piece originates from a website that styles itself as a council or roundtable of groups preparing for "the event" - apparently something to do with a "Pleadian" named "Cobra" who is channeling something or other.

The author - one Dane Arr - has a number of gems on that site - including "Illuminazies Will Flee to Antartica" -  complete with illustrations of circular flying objects.

It's presence on a website purporting to give objective and informed financial advice to parties seeking relief from special interest group spin is part n parcel of what makes the alternative media space not just whacky, but dangerous - for those sufficiently naive to buy into the bulk of what they read there.

From "Prepare for Change" to Global Research, to ZH. The trail is not hard to follow, but few will do the due diligence that this piece advises at it's conclusion. Similar agit-prop eminating from the lobby "stink-tanks" of neoCondistan D.C. likewise make the journey to these pages without filtering, all the time. Cui Bono?

As for the "Dr" Herr "journalist" who is featured in this piece[err, why do all these types seem to need to put some kind of honorific in front of their names? Dr of Statistics this, Dr of Bombast that?]

his protests that  "noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job" seem a little light on cred. Nobody forces journos to lie - it is a career decision. One can walk away from being used as a tool of distortion. And thanks to the internet - even set up a platform that disseminates 'real' information designed to let the reader come to their own informed conclusions about current events.*

Now that would be a n alternative!

*Yes, I did take note of the link where Udo Ulfkotte is writing under his own auspices. Unfortunately, shilling for something called "christian-jewish civilisation in europe" does not qualify as objective journalism. But that's a topic for another time. 


Ghordius's picture

"Why does he not mention, or even better, expose why the euro govt is deliberately..."

perhaps also because there is no such thing as one "euro govt"? for sure not when it comes to immigration?

Hungary has a completely different opinion as Germany, Poland says: "we have already lots of Ukrainians", Sweden flip-flopped and closed it's borders, and so on

Let's be honest...what do we think ZeroHedge is???  A beacon of truth and light?  Or just a further mindfuck for those that prefer a non-standard mindfuck?  I see an awful lotta of bullshit and progressively worsening come from ZH...or maybe this is the best that can be done to offer a contrary viewpoint on a shoestring?  The trick to democracy is to make the people believe they chose the leadership, they chose the bad outcomes...then who's to blame but themselves.  And things like ZH simply are out there to offer offer supposed the parties are supposed to offer a "spectrum of thinking".

I don't know anything for sure but pretty sure ZH has an agenda like CNBC like so many other outlets.  All they all part of an interlocking whole?  Seems entirely possible.  What that agenda is and who ZH, Drudge, etc. serve should be considered more thoroughly.

I find what ZH doesn't explain, doesn't report on equally or maybe more important than what it does.  I believe there are simple explanations for much of what is taking place and why it's taking place...but ZH remains very quiet on this.  Not sure why.

I'm afraid the truth will not set you free...only further ostracize and castigate.  Be careful which pill you choose...or the tribe may vote you out.
