"Highly respected" "Journalist" from the MSM media is finished!
Prize after Prize, for lying! A good time we are living in!!!
Name Dirk Gieselmann he wrote also vor The Spiegel, like ClaasRelotius!
The SZ - as well as the time media and the mirror, according to Meedia have already separated from Gieselmann, her next lie author. The Relotius clone had not responded to requests from Meedia yet. So all this seems to be a system. The system "Left lying press"
Updated story from last month, but it is always entertaining to see how the New Yorker can so artfully display the irony of its own existence:
The reputation of Der Spiegel, perhaps the most prestigious magazine in Europe, rests in no small part on the esteem of its fact-checking department, which employs at least sixty people full time.
Staff at Der Spiegel learned last month that ClaasRelotius, one of the publication's star reporters, had invented characters, conversations, and other details in many of the dozens of stories he published in the magazine in the past seven years.
"We were all shocked and sad," one reporter said. "It went to the core of how we understood our work. How could one single person be so harmful to all that we have been working on and pride ourselves on?"
Notably absent from this New Yorker piece, that reflects on how so many fake news stories could ever be published at such a highly esteemed magazine, is there an any mention of the possibility that false stories could be planted in the media for political purposes, or that a news magazine could ever be used to manipulate public opinion, regardless of any fact checking procedures that might be in place.
Oh, I forgot, just a few stories down in the New Yorker, there is an interview with a historian about her new book on truth and democracy (see attached highlight above).

Disgraced anti-Trump journalist may have embezzled donations meant for Syrian orphans
An award-winning German journalist who was recently found to have fabricated parts of stories may be facing more trouble. ClaasRelotius, 33, is facing new accusations that he solicited donations for orphans of the war in Syria, donations that he ultimately pocketed, reported CBS.
As part of the scandal over the former CNN International's Journalist of the Year, residents of Fergus Falls, Minn., dispelled a variety of falsehoods in his piece " In a small town" that took aim at "the people who pray for Trump on Sundays." Relotius is accused of making up quotes, interview subjects, and facts in potentially dozens of stories spanning years.
Der Spiegel, for which Relotius wrote, said readers had contacted the German news magazine about donations Relotius collected from readers who had emailed him about his 2016 story about two Syrian children living on the streets of Turkey, according to CNN.
The magazine said Relotius has resigned and it will press charges against him.
Wait til the WORLD hears about Haiti, HRC and those associated with her.
The streets will not be safe for any of them.

Der Spiegel to Press Charges Against Reporter Who Made Up Articles
HANOVER, Germany - Der Spiegel has announced that it will press charges against a former star reporter accused of systemically faking interviews and articles, in what might be the biggest journalism scandal in Germany since another newsmagazine published fake Hitler diaries 35 years ago.
The announcement came as the United States ambassador waded into the scandal by accusing the newsmagazine of anti-American bias and calling for an independent audit.
Richard Grenell, the American ambassador to Germany, wrote a letter to Der Spiegel on Friday that appeared to try to tie the fraud committed by the reporter, ClaasRelotius, 33, to the newsmagazine's editorial methods.
Some of the most notable articles that Mr. Relotius admitted faking are set in the United States, such as profiles of a religious activist who travels the country to witness executions, anti-immigrant militiamen in Arizona and a town of Trump supporters in Minnesota.

Germany's Der Spiegel Says Reporter Made Up Facts
BERLIN-Europe faces its largest journalistic scandal in years after Der Spiegel, the continent's biggest-selling news magazine, said one of its star reporters fabricated facts in his articles for years.
The magazine's disclosure, which came after a colleague raised concerns about a recent piece on supporters of President Trump in rural America, was made as Europe's established media faces attacks by populist forces at home and abroad.
ClaasRelotius, an award-winning journalist, resigned from the magazine last week after admitting to making up parts of his reporting in the past decade, Der Spiegel said late Wednesday.
Mr. Relotius couldn't be reached for comment.
According to the magazine, Mr. Relotius, 33, invented characters, dialogue and events in his coverage of subjects ranging from a Guantanamo inmate who no longer wanted to leave the prison to civil war orphans in Syria.
"We must see what control mechanisms failed, whether they did or whether we were negligent," Steffen Klusmann, who will become the magazine's editor in chief next year, said in a video interview posted on the magazine's website.

US ambassador to Germany demands Spiegel fake news investigation
US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell on Friday demanded an independent investigation into a German journalist who was caught making up key details in a series of reports for Der Spiegel news magazine.
He said the revelations "are troubling to the US Embassy, particularly because several of these fake stories focused on US policies and certain segments of the American people."
He said he wrote to the editors of the respected news weekly calling for an "independent and transparent investigation."
He said it was clear the US had been the victim of institutional bias at the magazine, saying the outlet encouraged anti-American reporting, particularly since Donald Trump was elected president.
Journalist ClaasRelotius, 33, resigned after admitting to making up stories and inventing protagonists in more than a dozen articles in the magazine's print and online editions. Since then, other outlets the freelancer wrote for, such as Die Welt and Die Zeit, have been poring over their articles.
On Friday, Der Spiegel published a letter in response to Grenell's requests.
"We apologize to all American citizens who have been insulted and denigrated by these reports. We are very sorry. That should never have happened," Der Spiegel's Dirk Kurbjuweit wrote.
"However, I would like to contradict you on one point. If we criticize the American president, it is not anti-Americanism, but criticism of the policy of the man in the White House. Anti-Americanism is deeply foreign to me and I am absolutely aware of what Germany owes to the United States: a great deal. At Spiegel, there is no institutional bias towards the USA.
"You suggest that in other cases, too, there has been erroneous reporting about your country. Please tell us about these cases and we will investigate them immediately," Kurbjuweit wrote.

>>4389460 ClaasRelotius wrote a hit piece on Trump and his supporters in November 2017 that Der Spiegel now says he made up.
"Among the articles that he is found to have fabricated concerns one about Fergus Falls, Minnesota, where Relotius spent some time in early 2017 with the intention of writing about a Trump-voting area of America.
"The underpinning idea, originating in the Hamburg news office/editorial office, was not about haughty demonization of the first months of Trump from the perspective of Europeans, but about looking at that time frame through the eyes of those who had presumably voted for Big Don," Der Spiegel says.
"The plan was for Relotius to rent in Fergus Falls, meet people, listen, and record a small time image that would make you understand the Americans a little better."
However, the magazine notes that Relotius found nobody who could give him the story he was looking for, with Der Spiegel writing: "There is simply no story, no one can be found."
But rather than give up and admit this, he started making stuff up, beginning his story by generating a fictional sign at the entrance of the city that read: "Mexicans Keep Out - Mexicans, Stay Away."
This sign never existed, "it was only in the imagination of the author," and as a result "insulted the inhabitants of Fergus Falls."
Relotius went on to write that students at Kennedy High School were asked to paint models of the American Dream, and he said that all but a few painted Donald Trump.
"All this is a lie, just everything, it's crap," Der Spiegel says.
The German magazine Der Spiegel revealed Wednesday that one of its top award-winning journalists fabricated many of his articles, inventing characters, sources, and their quotes "on a grand scale" for many years.
ClaasRelotius, a reporter and editor, admitted to fabricating parts of at least 14 stories following the magazine's internal investigation. The publication said the issue "marks a low point in the 70-year history of Der Spiegel."
"I am sick and I need to get help," he reportedly told the magazine.

CNN's "Journalist Of The Year" Committed Journalistic Fraud "On A Grand Scale" At Der Spiegel
German news magazine Der Spiegel has admitted that one of its top reporters has faked stories for several years.
Award-winning journalist ClaasRelotius had "made up stories and invented protagonists" in approximately 14 out of 60 articles which appeared both in print and online editions. He had worked for Der Spiegel for seven years, winning numerous awards for his investigative journalism - including CNN's Journalist of the Year award in 2014, according to the Guardian.
Relotius, 33, tendered his resignation after admitting to the fraud.
Earlier this month Relotius won Germany's Reporter of the Year (Reporterpreis) honor for his story about a young Syrian boy. Since the report was written, it has emerged that all of the sources were hazy at best, and most of what he wrote was completely fabricated.
The falsification came to light after a colleague who worked with him on a story along the US-Mexican border raised suspicions about some of the details in Relotius's reporting, having harboured doubts about him for some time.
The colleague, Juan Moreno, eventually tracked down two alleged sources quoted extensively by Relotius in the article, which was published in November. Both said they had never met Relotius. Relotius had also lied about seeing a hand-painted sign that read "Mexicans keep out", a subsequent investigation found.
Other fraudulent stories included one about a Yemeni prisoner in Guantanamo Bay, and one about the American football star Colin Kaepernick. -Guardian
The Spiegel - which has an online readership of over 6.5 million and sells around 725,000 print copies per month, admitted to the fraud in a lengthy article in which they said they were "shocked" by the discovery - apologizing for anyone deceived by Relotius's "fraudulent quotes, made-up personal details or invented scenes at fictitious places."
The magazine added that Relotius had committed journalistic fraud "on a grand scale," and has described the incident as "a low point in Spiegel's 70-year history."
Relotius worked for several other outlets, including Germany's taz, Welt and the Frankfurter Allgemeine's Sunday edition.
Relotius told Spiegel that he was deeply ashamed for his fabrications, claiming "I am sick and I need to get help."
Moreno, who has worked for the magazine since 2007, risked his own job when he confronted other colleagues with his suspicions, many of whom did not want to believe him. "For three to four weeks Moreno went through hell because colleagues and those senior to him did not want to believe his accusations at first," Der Spiegel wrote in an apology to its readers. For several weeks, the magazine said, Relotius was even considered to be the victim of a cunning plot by Moreno.
"Relotius cleverly rebuffed all the attacks, all of Moreno's well-researched pieces of evidence ... until there came a point when that didn't work any more, until he finally couldn't sleep any more, hunted by the fear of being discovered," the magazine wrote. -Guardian
After being confronted by a senior editor, Relotius finally caved and admitted to the fraud. In his confession, he said "It wasn't because of the next big thing. It was fear of failing. My pressure to not be able to fail got ever bigger the more successful I became."

Fälschen für Europa
Der Schriftsteller Menasse hat jahrelang Zitate eines EU-Kommissionschefs gefälscht, um Propaganda für ein vereintes Europa zu betreiben.

Hat Zitate des 1. EU-Kommissionspräsidenten Hallstein gefälscht: der österreichische Schriftsteller Robert Menasse Foto: dpa
Nun also Robert Menasse. Nur wenige Wochen nach ClaasRelotius haben liberale Linke und Medien ihren nächsten Fälschungsfall. Der österreichische Schriftsteller hat über Jahre hinweg Zitate des ersten EWG-Kommissionschefs gefälscht, die Menasses Vision der Vereinigten Staaten von Europa besser legtimierten. Sogar eine Antrittsrede von Hallstein in Auschwitz hat Menasse erfunden.
In beiden Fällen haben die Sicherungsmechanismen versagt. Im Fall Relotius musste sein Kollege Juan Moreno auf eigene Faust recherchieren, weil seine Chefs zunächst Relotius und nicht ihm glaubten. Bei Menasse ist das Versagen noch eklatanter: Der Historiker Heinrich August Winkler begründete schon im Oktober 2017 in einem Spiegel-Essay, warum er die Hallstein-Zitate für falsch hielt. Niemand reagierte. Weder Menasse noch seine zeitweilige Co-Autorin Ulrike Guérot, weder der "Spiegel" selbst noch andere Medien oder andere Institutionen im Kulturbetrieb.
Menasse hielt weiter Lesungen, schrieb Essays, nahm Ehrungen entgegen, ohne dass er auf die falschen Zitate angesprochen wurde. Weite Teile des linksliberalen Betriebs fühlen sich derzeit im Kulturkampf gegen Rechts - seine Antennen sind darauf gerichtet, rassistische Äußerungen von Provinzverwaltungen aufzuspüren. Fälschungen im eigenen Lager erkennen sie nicht.
Ebenso wie Relotius' hat auch Menasse das Schwarz-Weiß-Denken des Kulturkampfs bedient. Bei Menasse ist es die Position, dass die Nationalstaaten obsolet seien und die Vereinigten Staaten von Europa kommen müssten. Erst das hat den Österreicher in Deutschland richtig bekannt gemacht.
Dabei hat gerade diese sich selbst als pro-europäisch verstehende Position etwas sehr Deutsches: Es ist die Sehnsucht nach absoluten Lösungen statt mühsam Kompromisse auszuhandeln oder sich durchzumogeln. Und es ist zugleich eine Bewältigung der deutschen und österreichischen Geschichte: Weil Deutschland (und Österreich) mit Auschwitz ein einmaliges Verbrechen in der europäischen Geschichte begangen haben, sollen auch alle anderen ihre Nationalstaatlichkeit aufgeben. In Deutschland hat man nur wenig Verständnis dafür, dass Länder, die einmal Opfer der deutschen Geschichte wurden, schon wieder anders denken als man selbst.
Kann man etwas aus dem Fall Menasse lernen? Zumindest soviel: Es tut der liberalen Linken nicht gut, in Schwarz-Weiß-Mustern zu denken. Die fehlende Lust an differenziertem Denken führt auch zum Verlust, offenkundige Fälschungen zu erkennen oder wahrzunehmen. Menasse selbst fühlte sich berufen, Auschwitz für seine politischen Vorstellungen zu instrumentalisieren und Zitate zu erfinden - und dies auch noch als legitimes Mittel zu rechtfertigen. Dabei gewinnt man politisch so nichts: Der FPÖ wird es von jetzt an eine Freude sein, Menasse als Fälscher vorzuführen.
