It’s no secret that the only life-forms lower than American career politicians are any corporate media employees who pretend to be “journalists.” The long, long list of celebrated news pros who get outed as serial liars and fabricators grew once again recently.
Der Spiegel‘s Claas Relotius was exposed as yet another Fake Newsman, so it’s perfectly fitting that Fake News Network CNN once hailed Relotius as “Journalist of the Year.” LMAO. How appropriate. Der Spiegel has much more class than ANY American Fake News outfit because they pressured Claas to resign once his long line of falsehoods was made public.
As for why CNN loved Claas Relotius: in the eternal corporate media game of bias confirmation Relotius did a notorious – and now notoriously FAKED – article depicting Trump supporters in Fergus Falls, MN as the simpletons and fools that anti-Trump fanatics like to pretend Trump supporters are.
The residents of Fergus Falls did their OWN story on Relotius’ phony reporting, exposing all his falsehoods and even his lies about how he supposedly compiled his long list of falsehoods and biased narratives. With this exposure added to Claas’ long list of previous fabrications (remember the Stephen Randall Glass scandal) Der Spiegel confronted the disgraced Fake Newsman for repeated lies and for outrightly making up figures who appeared in his Fake News stories.
No doubt Relotius could still find a job as an “analyst” for CNN or MSNBC or any of the other shrill corporate media outlets over here in America. They like to ignore facts and just make up things, too.
