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.

The M.I.C. knows it must lie on the nightly news to keep the funding flowing.

"Whatever it takes" is their motto.  Stop sacrificing our kids for these psychopaths!

I have a TV, I suspect it still works, no time to watch if even if I wanted to.  *Husband and father*

Strange thing, my kids could watch it all the time if they wanted to.  They rarely turn it on.  Near as I can tell YouTube is their generation's version of television.  The spend as much time rotting their brains watching YouTube as I spent at their age rotting my brain in front of the TV.

I remember the associated stories around both of these women. I applaud them both for their intelligence and journalistic integrity. Respect.

Sibel Edmonds too.


I shall not absolve you of your crimes against humanity and you will hang from homemade gallows like the scum you lied for in the last 25 years, motherfucker. Don't think getting religion at this late stage will buy you an favours from the 99% former apologist whore hack bastard. You should have ratted out the slimey bastards decades ago.

 These lies are at the very heart of whats really wrong with this world. Its no wonder so many people dont have a clue about so many things. They were fed a steady diet of lies from the time they started to comprehend speach. Its not just the media either. Its everyone that people might look to for some truth.

 The best way to show respect to another is tell them the truth as best you can. Any pussy could spew lies. It takes more to tell people truths simply because people would rather be lied too. That part sucks worst of all.

Yep sir, you end up being the bad guy about 98% of the time. Once you get past that part of the process it makes you appreciate those rare birds that can square talk you back. …. Better not be too much of a herd animal if you are going to go around spewing truth all day.


Truth ain’t all that much fun but it is empowering.


Good insight there, VW.

Respect is where the Freedom is. We used to respect each other as individuals with rights. Yeah, go march in a protest if you want. But you didn't hate me because I don't make it my cause.


TPTB destroyed that line of respect. Decades in the making, too. Once we lost repect for one another as individuals with equal rights (note that I did not say respect for one another as equals), we lost respect for ourselves, our rule of law, our Constitution. Without that invisible line of respect for the rights of the individual first and foremost, TPTB is trampling us and our Freedoms and our rule of law.


I'm willing to let them think that this will continue indefinitely, but woe the unintended consequences.

I gotta say that I love people who speak truth. I support amnesty for those who tell it straight and have lied in the past. This is good news.

Telling the truth will out the liars. Here's a fun podcast that drills down to that.

Take your pick: they're all good.

If their lips are moving they are lying. No one gets face time on TV unless they have been bought and paid for by tptb. 

That is why it is so irritating to endure people bickering over anything presented by the media whores.

Just annoying.

Sanders, Clinton or Trump is only one choice. Even with the internet people insist on being duped. They couldn't form an original opinion if their lives depended on it. And their lives do depend on it. Sad that their ignorance determines my destiny!

I unplugged my TV for over FIVE YEARS.  I turned it back on after "9-11".

Well, I unplugged in 2008. To save my child's mind since I have to be away long enough of a day to keep the lights on.


I am resolved to not plugging the thing back in. Ever.


Kid get straight-a's, holds a job, and told a friend the other day that there isn't anything free in this life--someone's got to pay for it.


She didn't get that from the media.

Not had TV this century.

My kids were only subjected to the lying, manipulative box when they were with their mother.

Neither of them have one now that they are adults.

We spent time DOING stuff instead.

They both see the world more clearly than most of their generation.

"Journalists" do what their Masters tell them to do. Gasp!

Russian journalists, Chinese journalists, Zimbabwean journalists, Argentinean journalists, Costa Rican journalists, as well as American and all other western journalists. It's not like there is any such thing as a virtuous prostitute in any corner of the globe. 

They are all there as the "media". That means that they put themseles in the middle between you and what happens in the world. Then they select what you will find out about and what you will not find out about.

Media is not a method of transmission but rather a location. IN THE MIDDLE. Classic Newspeak to redefine it away from what it really is into something that sounds innocuous to the poorly-educated.

It's all news rigging and easier when you have bots writing your news for you today.  I used that same Atkinson video in my News Rigging post along with another one that shows how smart journobots are.  One bot, which was patented way back in 2009 wrote 10k books and put them on sale on Amazon.

I use the free Narrative Science bot to write me a story about my blog every week, as I wanted to see how it works.  Also it made it easy for me to spot other news written by bots as you can see some of the same patterns.  Bots an also kick out "knock off news" in a hurry as well, wonder why it all looks the same?  Nanex and I a couple years ago had this conversation on how these news stories find their way into the SIP news feeds, algos trade and jounobots write about that topic and companies.  It comes full circle as the the algos in the markets and the news bots just keep it going.  They play together and at some point one has to maybe wonder is this a new way to rig the market to a degree?  You can schedule a bot story to write at the end of the day for example with stocks you want to cover and tell the bot where to put the emphasis.  ProPublica and Forbes both do quite a bit with the Narrative Science bot.  

So yeah, news is rigged and the bots are doing it with a little human supervision.

What? The RT interview with Dr. Ulfakatte is 18 months old. And he is still alive.

While what he says is undoubtedly true, perhaps he is just tring to revive his book sales and paid speaking engagements.

 he is still alive.

He is missing the contents of his ball sack and a goodly part of his penis

uhland62's picture

His story is not widely known so it does not hurt to bring it up again. He was in influential positions (see Dr. Udo Ulfkotte on English and German wikipedia) which makes the lying severe. This spelling of his name is correct.

The German system just doesn't like people who don't tow the line, now with the US and its organisations like German Marshall Fund, Atalntik-Brücke or in Australia " Australian-American Leadership Dialogue'.

It's just the same methods as the NAZIS used and which were used by the STASI. That's the German nature, cheating and gypping, kowtowing to who has more money. I was a German once, I know - and I left because of it all. But even from far away, the Kohl-Regime's machinations caught up with me. They just know how to steal and cheat. But the Americans will be bitterly disappointed one day when they don't pay any more or someone else pays more - the Germans will flip.

And all they had to do to put this whore on his knees was to threaten to take away his job?  Are you kidding me?  Oh, the horror!   Not his job!

And he even has the audacity to use that as his excuse for being a traitor to the public he was duty bound to if that makes it okay.  I'd give him a new job.....for the rest of his life.

 Anybody who thinks they are going to get the truth from RT, Putin's pet cable channel, is truly clueless.
