Germany: Der Spiegel says star reporter made up material - Yahoo

Excerpt:

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.

Spiegel said Relotius acknowledged fabricating parts of at least 14 stories, including a piece about an American woman who he said volunteered to witness the executions of death row inmates, such as one in Texas at the beginning of the year.

Relotius didn't immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.

The case, which is still being investigated, "marks a low point in the 70-year history of Der Spiegel," the magazine said.


Recall the Morrissey interview in Der Spiegel in Nov. 2017 in which Morrissey denied saying some of the things printed, later refuted when the journalist Juliane Liebert released the audio file of the interview. It's unclear how the journalist Claas Relotius relates to Morrissey other than the Der Speigel link.

I hope Morrissey says some more 'controversial comments' (home truths) soon.

I love it when all the brainwashed idiots have a tantrum.

Something like: 'Israel is an ethnostate, why can't we be?' would be nice.

Or: "How come in London, a multicultural city, none of the violent criminals are white?'

I'd laugh my socks off.

Moz has been pissing (stupid) people off since 1983 - and long may it continue!

I hope he doesn't. He should just hand the hack a reading list & then talk about cats.

So Morrissey did say the things he claimed not to have said and worse. I am done with him.

All mainstream media are liars that promote a narrative. Look at any recent Guardian article. All they push is fear porn and lies

I agree with you for once. Mostly it's spin, hyperbole & 'satire' - rather than outright making up quotes or incidents (unless it's easy to fake because the person is anon in the piece & you're the only source).

Laurence Fox headlines have gone the full gamut:

I'd never heard of Laurence Fox until he started lecturing us about racism.
Laurence Fox and the curdling of the rational mind
Laurence Fox is the hero we deserve (satire)
Want to know what racism feels like, ask Laurence Fox (sarcasm)
Who is Laurence Fox & why is he annoying everyone?
Laurence Fox was a lamb to the culture war slaughter
The radicalisation of Laurence Fox shows the worrying power of right-wing YouTube
Foals Yannis Philippakis slams Laurence Fox
June Sarpong on white privilege & race after Laurence Fox
Andrew Castle jokes he's the new Laurence Fox

& on & on & on...
