Germany: Der Spiegel says star reporter made up material

BERLIN (AP) — An award-winning journalist who worked for Der Spiegel, one of Germany's leading news outlets, has left the weekly magazine after evidence emerged that he committed journalistic fraud "on a grand scale" over a number of years, the publication said Wednesday.

Spiegel published a lengthy report on its website after conducting an initial internal probe of the work of Claas Relotius, a 33-year-old staff writer known for vivid investigative stories. The magazine said Relotius resigned Monday after admitting some of his articles included made-up material from interviews that never happened.

The Hamburg-based magazine said Relotius contributed almost to 60 articles published in print or online since 2011, first as a freelance writer before being hired full-time last year. The reporter previously worked for other German and Swiss publications and won numerous awards, including CNN Journalist of the Year in 2014.

President Trump accurately claims that fake news is an enemy of the people. It is also fair to say that dishonest, incompetent reporters are enemies of journalism.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. The entire media was hijacked decades ago after the Vietnam war and they have been indoctrinating us with their ideology ever since. I often think some of them are not even aware that they have been brainwashed. Those that are aware simply believe the ends justifies the means, even if they act dishonestly and untruthfully and spin the stories their way. Their other technique is to stonewall stories that do not fit their narrative , blacklist those journalists that don`t go along and mock any challengers. They have convinced millions of people to go along with their tactics and strategy. The universities were also hijacked by Marxists and socialists and these are the people who now teach and graduate today`s journalists. They have lost some of their control with the advent of the internet and so are now fighting for their lives, censoring and vigorously attacking anyone who challenges them. In fact, I doubt this comment will get past their censors.

Der Spiegel 'fake news' reporter could face charges

Der Spiegel says it is filing a criminal complaint alleging he solicited donations for Syrian orphans from readers with any proceeds going to his personal account.

Der Spiegel said last week that Relotius admitted faking some stories.

The reporter, 33, has yet to comment on the embezzlement allegations.

In the latest development, Der Spiegel reports (in German) that it received messages from readers saying Relotius had used a private email account to ask for donations to help Syrian orphans in Turkey.

The money should be sent to his personal bank account, the magazine quotes readers as saying.

The publication says it is not yet clear what sort of response he received - how much money was collected or where it ended up.

Der Spiegel is gathering evidence to pass on to prosecutors.

Relotius' appeal for donations was linked to an article he wrote about two Syrian street-children, a brother and sister, in Turkey - parts of which Der Spiegel says were faked.

Der Spiegel to run 23-page special on reporter who faked stories

German magazine calls Claas Relotius scam ‘worst thing that can happen’ to editorial team

The German news weekly Der Spiegel is to publish a 23-page special report on how one of its award-winning reporters faked stories for years and dealt a blow to media credibility.

Claas Relotius, 33, resigned after admitting making up stories and inventing protagonists in more than a dozen articles in the magazine’s print and online editions.

Since the scandal was revealed by the magazine on Wednesday, other mainstream German outlets including Die Welt and Die Zeit, which once used Relotius as a freelancer, have also begun poring through articles that he wrote for them.

“Tell it like it is,” wrote Der Spiegel on its latest magazine cover page, in an allusion to the publication’s motto coined by its founder, Rudolf Augstein, that also hangs at the entrance of its headquarters in Hamburg.

In its editorial, the magazine said the scam, involving subjects including Syrian orphans and a Holocaust survivor, was the “worst thing that can happen to an editorial team”.

It also apologised for the mistake and promised to “do everything to boost our credibility again”.
