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.

I have told my wife and children from day one. If you really want a clue as to what is really going on, watch the mainstream news. THIS is what they want you to believe. And always remember its all halftruths or outright lies orchestrated by people that are up to no good. So use that information to try to figure out WHY????

And, so this article appears at near midnight? This should be one of the biggest prime time articles on ZH... and do not ignore the possibility that ZH is CIA (or an associate organization) run.

BTW, the CIA was formed from Nazis brought over with operation paperclip. (but they must now be composed of second and third generations operatives, right? ... not sure if or how Nazi control of the CIA has been propagated)

If you believe in a very strong spiritual influence on earth and that Hitler and his Nazis tapped into that ... because there is ample evidence that the Nazis were actively seeking spritual help, then one can directly link the Nazis to the fallen angels (demonic influence) ... which are then directly linked to the CIA and the banks and the global elitist secret societies. These Nazi/CIA/Fallen ones have userped all positions of power on earth. One can make an argument that the world is not really allowed to run as a human society.

The question then is how do these fallen ones/demons manifest themselves on earth? AND what can be done to counter them without becoming influenced by them.

The Europeans are not to be taken seriously until they begin to refer to us as jew-ridden America and the jew-run CIA.

But the jews are the false jews prophesized in the bible, not the Hebrew jews ... so who are they really?

We were warned about this when the republic was created.

The CIA contains tools for the elite.

A media owned by the elite to control the masses.

Want to actually DO something about ‘freedom of the press’?

Like him or not, they are indicting Pete Santilli in Nevada on some trumped up charges regarding the Bundy Ranch standoff.

From everything I can tell he was there as a journalist and little else.

I want to hear ALL sides to a story and think arresting reporters on interfering or obstructing LEO charges when they are simply getting the news out is lowlife dot gov behavior and clearly unconstitutional.

Time to scream ‘FOUL’ loud and often about the Santilli case.

Are readers here questioning ZH, who stands behind Tyler?  That's true skeptical tradition.  We arrive back to the Socratic question of what is truth and how can we know it?   In the modern world we need mass media.  Mass media is infiltrated by 5th columns.  Left and right.  How can we discern them?  How to avoid being a Munzeneburg useful idiot or just a pig in goebbels herd of swine? 

That's the question.

You are clueless.  There is no left and right at the CFR.  There is their agenda and that is it and all media must tow the Pravda propaganda social engineering party line.  Stop being a complete and utter moron.

The CIA is a puppet of the Council on Foreign Relations that coodinates all western media.  Without mentioning the actual source of all the lies and crime, this story does not do justice to the truth.  Arrest every member of the Council of Foreign Relations and hang them either on the National Mall or in Central Park as an example of what should happen to traitors and those that would advocate and create crimes against humanity.

Most I speak with slurp up the MSM without question.  Seems their BS meter is broken or non existent.  They are unwilling to go online and research things.  If you are reading ZH and other secondary/alt media for additional information, kudos to you!

Note:  I also like to try to verify what I find on alternative media.  Fair share of bad info there also.

People still watch TeeVee? I shut down that cable *garbage* almost twenty years ago. Internet so-called news is just as bad. One needs to control one's own intellectual agenda. Develop questions on your own and then search out answers. Do not let the media control the topic of conversation or you're lost. Propaganda distortions are often based upon errors of omission, so without independently searching and corroborating a story, you will never become aware of what has been left out. Learn to read between the lines.

The internet is a communication medium ... like newsprint. It's no more bad than your telephone line or cell phone.

Top-German Journalist Udo Ulfkotte :)

I don't know what Zerohedge is calling a "Top-Journalist" and Ulkottes critics are everything but not "brand-new". 

Nevertheless: His contribution is worthy to be published and discussed.

Well Germany is a curious creature. Via a Saker comment

BERLIN/DRESDEN/MUNICH (Own report) German espionage organizations have been involved in the deadly hostage taking by Chechen terrorists in 2002. The Federal Government had to concede this on the strength of reports by the press. In spite of previous warning by Russian officials, preparations for the action during which 130 persons died in a Moscow music hall, were made in Germany. The German police did not intervene. Prominent Chechen separatists are being supported by German organizations and are in contact with German politicians involved in foreign affairs. An illegal ,,bureau representing the Chechen Republic of Itschkeria"is permitted to exist in Munich - unhindered. Tolerance and preferential treatment of Chechen activities enable the German government to exert covert influence in the Caucasus where, at the moment, bitter power struggles between the Russian Federation, the USA and Germany, i.e. the European Union are taking place.

It's not shocking that most people are bought into whatever the narrative is.

That's standard through history and technology only makes this more achievable to the delight of our dark lord's hosts.

Still there are more awake people as a percentage than at any time in history because of the internet.  The truth is of course out there sitting in plain sight along with all the goofball theories of everything but it's still readily available to those with any kind of discernment.

I have to think this is having an effect.   Yes it seems glacial to those who've arrived at the truth almost painfully slow but it's still there and historically, again, that's not normal at all and it will produce some kind of fruit however slow bearing it may seem.

The MSM have basically jumped the shark. The public is so poorly educated and so generally uninformed that the majority are literally incapable of being influenced by propaganda because they cannot even understand what they're being told. Ex. Yellen is giving a speech about monetary policy, today. Um, Yellen? Who?

Ask ten people at random how money gets created and listen to their explanations or ask them what John Maynard Keynes did at Bretton-Woods or whatever.

The media rationalizes and distracts to provide cover for whatever machinations are underway. The more 'informed' the conventional viewer is, the less contact with reality he or she is likely to have. Someone who never watches the news and knows absolutely nothing about economics or the markets probably has a higher percentage of truth on tap than the typical econ news buff. Knowing nothing is not bad if the mainstream alternative is worse than nothing.

Unfortunately, way too many people who tumble to the totally fraudulent nature of the news and the markets then proceed to fallaciously conclude that what they've been taught to reject must actually be true, from astrology to secret cabals. Truly, there is no hope...

"If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my papers, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of journalists is to destroy the truth; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell this country and this race for their daily bread. We are the tools and vessels for rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.” –John Swinton, former Chief of Staff of the New York Times and the "Dean of his Profession", in a toast before the New York Press Club, 1953


"We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the light of publicity during those years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." ~ David Rockefeller

The first time I voted it was for Nixon. Yeah, I know but there was little choice, IMO. By the time he left office I had stopped watching tv news, listening to radio news, and reading "news" papers or magazines.

Felt a lot mentally-healthier in just a few weeks. Never went back to that particular addiction. Now I watch some television but very few of today's shows; I never watch things like frontline anymore. I despise "public" tv; they play poor-mouth but collect millions of taxpayer money; liars.

Burn, Babylon, Burn!


It's all propaganda.  Everyone has an agenda whether they know it or not.  Those who know it use resources to push their own agendas.  Those who don't know it are pawns in other people's agendas.  There is no such thing as a consensus reality, because it has been taken over by psychopaths who concentrate all power, money, resources and knowledge in their own hands while enslaving the masses and sucking off of humanity like vampires.

If you believe the state-sponsored (Kremlin) RT, then you're a blithering idiot.

Anyone who gets their info needs to think twice and watch this following video first.

It's an ABSOLUTE MUST and eye opener. You don't watch it, you lose. This isn't "clickbait".

Of course RT isn't unbiased. But it's no worse than and probably better than what masquerades as news in the West today.

Yeah fine. Point is, this is the worst type of propaganda around.

Zero Hedge then sucked it up and proliferated it. Now it's on Drudge. Sadly a lot of people are still too dumb to know who's behind what, RT in this case. Watch that video I just linked. RT often puts fakes on the air. Fake economists, fake scientists, fake military personnel, etc.

It's not a joke. Zero Hedge unwittedly just did the Kremlin's bidding.

RT, Russia Insider and Sputnik News are all zionist MSM and nothing more.

They are all secretly allied with western MSM.

They have ALL banned me from posting, which is how I know they are zionists.

They are not Putin's friend, nor are they Trump's friend.

They are nothing more than controlled opposition set up by the usual suspects we all are all too familiar with already.
