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.

Here's a complete run-down of what this "top journalist" has been up to:


Oh, and as for Amber Lyons, those Emmys of hers were strictly regional - for work on a local station Tucson. After that, she had a brief, unsuccessful stint at CNN. Now she does podcasts and runs a site that advocates psychedelic drugs:

The author of dialoginternational is a regular contributor to Daily Kos - an openly communist website - and claims that criticism of central banking/the Federal Reserve is nothing more than a far-right conspiracy borne of anti-Semitism. He also claims that wanting to investigate 9/11 is also a vast anti-Jewish right-wing conspiracy.

Ergo, his credibility is already lower than anything you can try to smear Dr. Ulfkotte with.

Now that I think about it, the author of dialoginternational sounds suspiciously like ZH's very own Eirik Magnus Larsson.

Udo Ulfkotte worked 17 years for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). After quitting he wrote the book "Bought Journalists". I read it and believe he is credible. But he is a loner. I think it would need 1-2 more key-journalists to join the camp to bring change about. Unfortunately most people don't speak up. It is only one in several thousand. We know that from German history.'s picture

One of the great demonstrations of the limits of the media is "global warming".  Despite non-stop effort by the self-interested and media, polls repeatedly show it is at the bottom of most people's list of concerns.

So if a president Trump decides to junk all those programs, while the media and the pigs will holler, most people won't be bothered.

As I've said I like you but you have no clue about war. You intend to hide: good. Maybe you'll escape detection. Good. This isn't going that way. If you have a mailbox commissars want to know where you were. You said you were gone. Get gone.

Before God. Ahmen. 

I'm not leaving. I have a score to settle. You need to be gone. Ths isn't for you. Go away. Find God. That is all.

I know all I need to know about war, namely, I will never participate in one.  If I kill anyone (or even try), it will be someone trying to harm me.

I will never try to kill any human just because some human "authority" told me to.  Nor will I fund those who behave this way.

I agree that the best way to deal with human predators is to exterminate them.  Or as you say, "settle a score".  However, to have any chance of success requires the percentage of humans with the same idea and willing to act is at least 1% of the population.  But in fact, the percentage seems to be somewhere around 0.000001%... vastly too few.

Too late! The "propaganda war" is lost. The people manipulating have made huge progress over the last 50 years. Conversely people have not become more educated, quite the opposite. Most "intelligent" people understand that there is no point fighting the system whence the incredible level of cynicism right now. The alliance of the 0.1% and the silent majority is unstoppable. Let's see where it takes us.

There are millions of people who are perfectly aware of what is going on, and millions more who may not be in the know, but have been born and bred to despise aristocracy and ridiculous authority.  There has never been a time of greater movement away from centrally controlled systems by the people, along with an enlightened attitude towards technology and the future.

This drumbeat of misery and defeat is planned despair, feeding negativity in an attempt to dampen the evolution of people away from oligarchy.  The useless parasite class will soon be on the run; this is all just rear guard action on their part, though they do not know it yet.

The "alliance" of the one percent and the silent majority is unstoppable?


Get a grip. TPTB destroyed that alliance. But they don't know that yet. Not fully. Wonder why the media stopped reporting on how many folks have cut the cord to their propaganda box? Because it's millions now, and growing. That's why. They're losing their "war".


When the Free Shit Army is set loose upon the cities by the manufactured "failure" of EBT cards to work, TPTB thinks to ride in to save the day, just as they are planning right now. But no one's going to buy it.


If they even get to my house, they better bring an army. They're going to need it. They might find out I'm not even home, but off fighting the Second American Revolution, 2.0, now out of Beta.


They send idiots like you out to spread doom and gloom. Know why? Because they and you don't have one fucking clue what the American Spirit is, where it was born, and who watches over it. But it's damn sure the reason a bunch of farmers with pitchforks kicked the shit out of the British Empire with only 3% of the population actually on the front lines.


I keep telling them, and I'm telling you: God is watching. This is his country and he made it and TPTB's arrogance and hubris in thinking they can subdue it will be their downfall. History may not repeat exactly, but it does surely rhyme.

Weapon of mass deception! 

Here is A transcript of the Bill Cooper who predicted 9/11 , 3 months before it happened ,broadcast that on 6/28/2001

"Supposedly a CNN reporter found Osama bin Laden, took a television camera crew with him, went in to Osama bin laden's hideout, interviewed him and his top leadership, and he came out and told everybody 'within three weeks Osama bin laden is going to attack the United States and Israel.' Now don't you think that's kind of strange folks? You see because the largest intelligence apparatus in the world with the biggest budget in the history of the world has been looking for osama bin laden for years and years and years and can't find him. some doofus jerk off reporter with a camera crew waltzes right into his hideout and interviews him and i'm telling you be prepared for a major attack , but it won't be osama bin laden, it will be those behind the new world order. I wonder what "osama bin laden's" targets are supposed to be? And if this doesn't materialize within the next 2-3 weeks it will eventually materialize because they haven't succeeded in getting the guns out of the hand of the American people, nor have they succeeded in taking our freedoms away. And so I can tell you with a certainty they must do something terrible in order to stop this backlash and regain the sympathy of the mass herds of sheeple out there. "


The Same technique is being  used in promoting the made out terrorists like(I$I$) and keeps the 'Terror' agenda rolling everyday fucking day.

 I have no doubt readers that have made out reached@ZH can bust most of them easily and might enjoy it listening or seeing Crises Actors doing their thing before camera.CNN even have soundtrack for its terror news. 

Being a mainstream journalist is a murky business.


Can someone please tell me why some mainstream media analyst or supposed debaters or invited guests on RT, PressTV are mostly from London or Washington?

They invited over and over again despite their disgusting position on the obvious fact of what is going on the recent events.

Am I wrong to smell a rat when i see them that all media including RT, PressTV are controlled also?

For proof you only need look at any mass shooting/terrorist show. All the Media all show the same set of pictures, all tell exactly the same story, almost word for word. The commentary changes, but it's still based on the same story. I've even the same photo cropped differently to make it appear to be different.

It's all just a Managed Media Event.

The German people are suffering a gigantic national nervous breakdown.

This has nothing to do with immigrants or the shitty government they put up with on a daily basis.

This has everything to do with no war for so long.

They are a warring people who aren't really fulfilled unless they're putting the boots to some other nation.

Wait and see as those Volkswagen plant floors are pulled back and those ICBM's stick their noses out.

I know the first place they'll be headed too, Bibi's breakfast table.

This journalist is just another symptom of being leashed up and frustrated for so long.

It is so like the matrix and the cat double take or the woman in the red dress.

The contradictions of life to what the MSM preach has become so obvious but steadily over time more and more people are becoming immune. Once the contradiction occurs no matter what you do there is no way to live in the system as a sheeple anymore.

At the moment contradictions abound all over the place for example.

Jeremy Hunt the UK Health Minister now telling us the UK leaving the EU will be bad for the beloved NHS. When it is the number of people the NHS has to treat has mushroomed through immigration and all part of the people flocking to the UK at 300K+ a year. Those 300K+ arriving in such number is only possible through the EU migration policy when a right wing think tank estimated 10 years ago the EU needed a +30 million population growth to maintain economic growth.The UK would have a share on that 30 million quota.

So this politician has now used that people think is important as weapon to maintain us in the EU which is in fact a load of bullshit from the previous. Me I am all for burning out all the institution such as the NHS, education, retirement etc. from the system because that disarms the NEOCON politicians whose only intent is to farm the population for their own benefit whilst making the population pay for it.

Hang the bastard ... and I can say that because I am UK but the policy atually applies to all countries and how they operate the MSM to maintain your compliance.

So in your country today, what has your politician tried to use as a compliance tool on you!

Actually it is far worse than "merely" having United States Central Intelligence Agency controlling the media. On Central Intelligence's recommendation the United States Feral government approved the formation of the Mainstream Media Oligopoly for the sole purpose of making the MSM into the Unconstitutional and illegal propaganda organ of the Feral government. The US Feral government now controls the MSM Oligopoly beyond the CIA's wildest imaginings through its various organs of State terror (CIA, FBI, IRS, NSA, DHS, etc.).

The problem the oligarchs are facing is that fewer and fewer people are paying attention to the "news."  They are trying to control the new media but it is much more difficult.  The other major problem they face is that with the dumbing down of entire generations it is almost impossible to find people that can do detail oriented work which manipulation requires.  Thus there are plenty of holes in the stories right out of the box so it doesn't take much for the casual viewer to become skeptical.  Examples would be Benghazi when a reporter showed up at the US compound days later and the place was unsecured, the passenger plane crash/shot down scene in the Ukraine that was left open and lastly......

the apartment in San Bernadino that was open for the media the next day yet months later the FBI is in a tizzy because they can't break into an iPhone.  ???
