Editor of Major German Newspaper Says He Planted Stories for CIA
Saying he believes a medical condition gives him only a few years to live, and that he is filled with remorse, Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, the editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of Germany’s largest newspapers, said in an interview that he accepted news stories written and given to him by the CIA and published them under his own name. Ulfkotte said the aim of much of the deception was to drive nations toward war.
Dr. Ulfkoote has written a book about what he alleges is firsthand knowledge of international intelligence agencies manipulation of the mainstream media. Gekaufte Journalisten translates to Bought Journalists, per the article (originally from Digital Journal‘s Ralph Lopez); apparently, although it’s gotten no media coverage and is only available in German, the book has become a best seller.
The video apparently originated from a RT interview; I hope that everyone that has landed here takes the time to watch it.
