TOP WRITER FOR CNN ADMITS HE MADE UP SEVERAL STORIES, REPORTS

CNN used to be an organization a good long time ago mind you that you could go to in order to hear a reasonable accounting of something that happened.

A few backroom deals and envelopes slipped under doors later and they have become the de facto press agency for the Democratic Party just based on the way they lean so far to the left its hard to not wonder how they haven’t tipped right on over and hit their heads.

Added to that is that the people running CNN or the people that are working for them seemingly have no problem at all completely making a story up as long as it gets eyes on their product.

Via Daily Wire:

A recent winner of CNN’s “Journalist of the Year” award has admitted to fabricating reports for years “on a grand scale” while at Der Spiegel, a German publication which warned other media organizations may have been affected.

“Claas Relotius, a reporter and editor, falsified his articles on a grand scale and even invented characters, deceiving both readers and his colleagues,” Der Spiegel reported. “This has been uncovered as a result of tips, internal research and, ultimately, a comprehensive confession by the editor himself.”




The publications said that suspicions grew after a November report by Relotius “about an American vigilante group that patrols the border between Mexico and the United States.”

A co-author on the report said that he observed Relotius’ behavior and grew distrustful, then reported what happened, which led to the publication confronting him.
