No one is surprised to hear that CNN reports fake news stories and lies about facts. We all know this has been going on for a while, but it's just nice to have someone admit to doing it.
Reporter and editor Claas Relotius is a top award-winning journalist who just admitted to fabricating at least parts of 14 different articles. Let that sink in...14 articles, and this is just one person. Imagine how many other people who work with the mainstream media are guilty of the same, but they don't admit it.
Claas Relotius writes for the German magazine Der Spiegel which has been undergoing an internal investigation. As a result of this investigation, it was uncovered that Relotius had been reporting false information in many articles including inventing characters, and quotes.
Fox News reports,
The reporter contributed around 60 articles to Der Spiegel, one of the leading German magazines for investigative reporting. He previously worked for other publications in Europe and won awards such as CNN Journalist of the Year in 2014.
The fabricated articles include a phone interview with the parents of free agent NFL player Colin Kaepernick and a story about an American woman who claims to have volunteered to witness the executions of death row inmates.
Relotius also drew the fury of locals in Fergus Falls, Minn., after spending three weeks in town and fabricating facts, characters and quotes from people in an effort to portray the town in a negative light.
This particular article was reportedly labeled as an endlessly insulting and hilarious excuse for journalism.
A spokesman for CNN said Thursday that the 2014 awards jury held a meeting after Der Spiegel went public with its investigation, and voted unanimously to strip Relotius of both awards.
Forbes identified Relotius as a top reporter last year, including him on a "30 Under 30" list for European media.
Several major features Relotius wrote for Der Spiegel that were also nominated for or won journalism awards are now under scrutiny, according to the magazine.
Among them, "The Last Witness," about an American who allegedly travels to an execution as a witness, "Lion Children," about two Iraqi children who have been kidnapped and reeducated by the Islamic State, and "Number 440," a feature about alleged prisoners at the US detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
CNN has in the past terminated employees for fake news, so we absolutely know that they do it. Lex Haris, Thomas Frank, and Eric Lichtblau were all forced to resign in 2017 over fake news surrounding the Russia investigation.
