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.

They probably killed a goat, but that's just splitting hairs...

SixIsNinE's picture

nah, it was the old #4 guy who was promoted to #1 but was demoted to #2 last week who was killed...

and they just happened to have the same name and beard.... who who's the wiser?

and the camel ate the thumb drive so they had to re-do the data....

belief is an action. the object of belief is things you don't know and/or you can't prove

knowledge is on the other side, the object of knowledge is things you can prove

educated intelligence is action, too. it's objects are thoughts you entertain in your mind... without accepting them yet (paraphrased from Aristotle)

educated intelligence is therefore the capability of listening, reading, checking... while not committing to a judgement yet, even if the material becomes vaster and conflicting

in short, the opposite of prejudice, and possibly of belief in general

Too much trouble for no good reason. There are very few news worthy of our attention out there...

They lost 650 some staff and 15 years later operate 5x or 7x the trade volume, presumably not as many staff but still... obviously one of the greater beneficiaries from that "tragic" day. Maybe they traded airline shorts in the weeks prior as well. Lots of stuff got destroyed. But hey, who is asking questions later from company that suffered so much and is now giving a day's worth commission to the victims.

Good find.

Yet the U.S. Media is silent, "free press" my ass, for 100 bucks they would eviscerate their own mother. Weak minded piece of shit pawns for the elite.

I know exactly the commercial you mean.  My fav in the series (I think it's the same company) is with the geeky middle school kid playing with his "practice" account where he made $600 pretend dollars.  The girl in the class pipes up and says "in 10 years he'll have a lot of REAL money", offers to let the the geek to walk her home and then asks if he can show her how to do "that simulated trading."

That last comment I can't get out of my head because in 8th grade if some girl asked me to show her how to do "similated trading" that would have meant only one thing for certain.  I'm getting at least mutual masturbation out of her.  Possibly a dry-hump.

Actually that commercial pisses me off because the one kid shoves the other kid in the back in a bullying manner, nice message

Actually in regards to MSM, politicians, banksters, oligarchs, the PTB, etc etc I apply a very simple concept : presumption of guilt.
Outside of sports, and weather reports, everything is a lie.

Sports are becoming pretty questionable as well.

lolz there is no UFOkotte (sic) or whatever you name the fella in German media, never been, never was.
This is the best pre-April joke in ages.

he's real

Germany is destined to undergo another revolution. Momentum is gaining and with 20 to 30 percent support in the population for massive changes, it is doable.

The US will of course try and "control" the vassal state as much as possible. We all know that the US interests are writing Angela Merkel's daily agenda. Just like many before her, she has been raised to comply and further US interests in Europe and beyond. If that culminates in the destruction of Germany, so be it.

We have always known.

He may be "real", but "top" is being way too generous.

That woman that quit RT saying the newsite was "nothing but Russian propaganda" I knew from that moment she was a CIA plant-other wise why in the hell would she bother working there at all if she felt that way?

So, the key is to eliminate the CIA. Got that #Trump2016 ?

I think I've lost the ability to be shocked at stuff like this any more.

You gotta admit though, it's nice to have your suspicions confirmed... years after the fact.

Yeah, that's true.  Just once I'd like to find out I was being overly cyinical, though.

It's called vindication...for all of us "crazy, conspiracy theorists."
A silent toast to all of us for sticking to our principles, when the rest of world laughed at and scorned us. Cheers, salud and nostrovia! I need more scotch.

someone should do a little card with the facts about the CIA creating the "conspiracy theorist" in anticipation of the fallout from them orchestrating and conducting the assassination of JFK and the following coverup and 300+ murders to shut people up. 

Just have that little card ready to hand to anyone dipshit dumbenough to still be under the "conspiracy theorist" hypnotic talking points ...

Now you know how cable news channels that have fewer primetime viewers than there are ZH readers on an average Monday night stay in business.  Getting enough ad revenue from your 1,700 MSNBC viewers to float the whole network ain't easy.  But as a loss-leader propoganda arm of the government and other powerful interests, there's no shortage of money to keep the lights on and pay everyone handsomely.

NYTimes should follow JP MOrgan's lead and sell their prime NYC real estate skyscraper to some Nouveau Riche Chinese who are ready to make a splash in the New York scene ...

they could convert it into apartments and sell them for $10 million each entry 1 bedrooms and on up to the suites and penthouses.

Give up the Ghost ol Lady Grey or whatever you used to be revered by ....

you're stinkin' up the place..... move it!

Anybody giving odds on Liesman of CNBS coming clean? lol. If he ever comes out and admits the truth, then I know Hell has truly frozen over.

and what if he came out and even admitted that he was given that name as a stage name for the LOLZZZZZZZZZZZZZ,

LIESMan !  The Jokester Puppeteers never stop !

It's interesting that the current political climate seems to "out" the MSM. It's so obvious to anyone paying attention that honest journalists are a thing of the past.

There are no "pro-US stories" in the mainstream media.

Shill/Troll Revolving Door None too bright grade 8 NSA. Why not make an effort to blend in, gain the trust of a % of the Z/H members (subvert/infiltrate)? They're probably employed on a zero-hour contract and been lifted/recruited off of the street. I much prefer the subtlety of Ghordius, whom even if not a shill, deserves some well-earned EU Funding for his efforts in presenting/portraying this bastion of bureaucratic bolshevism as a worthwhile entity.

You don't get it yet? CNN and the rest faithfully streaming the Bush Era "threat levels" at the bottom of the screen. Dutifully reporting the "evidence" of WMD'S in Iraq. Reporting with a straight face the reasons the military gave for letting Osama bin Laden escape when they had him surrounded: It was the Afghan forces they let handle it--the highest value target they invaded for, and they let the Afghans handle that one. --Not a typical military leader's approach.

But pro-U. S. does not mean your typical thought, with "pro-US". It has never meant the policy of whoever is president at the time. It is stories in benefit of the USA, but more specifically, policy of what has become Deep State. 

And there are multiple layers to this. For example, traditionally thinking Americans cherish the concepts of freedom, free speech, self defense tools, the Bill of Rights, etc. like almost nowhere else. Switzerland maybe. So after decades of failure at trying for gun restrictions, they send out the order to make the case for even more massive immigration.  From countries south of the border where it is a way of life that only government and criminals have guns. From countries who are used to getting told what to do. And from cultures guaranteed to clash.

Christians being the most resistant to the worst of government plans like de-population and prenatal infanticide, they wanted to bring in the fiercest anti-Christians.
