    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.

      Yeah, Morrissey must have forgotten about the audio file that was released that backed up everything written in his Der Speigel piece...

      The only thing he's provoking is that people go and research if its the same journo that interviewed him and find that response audio der Spiegel released.
      Better say nothing Moz, honestly.

      Awkward that it isn't the same journalist.
      He could have put the recording of the interview on the new LIHS reissue.


      PS - Thought Skinny would have been all over this- is he doing a crossword?

      I’m not saying the ‘Der Spiegel’ Interview was rigged. But here is an example from 2016 that shows what is possible nowadays...

      So be careful when watching or listening the news... ;-)

      I stopped believing anything I read in the press long ago. In fact I never did believe everything I read. Particularly if in The Guardian :rolleyes:

      Why is he sighing? Is it because it's bringing back embarrassing memories of being called out for lying? Like, when he claimed he never said all that stuff about Kevin Spacey and rape and immigration and whatnot, then dared them to release the audio? We share your pain, Moz. Believe me, we were probably cringing almost as much as you.

      What a silly bastard Morrissey is. Totally ignores the fact the the audio is there for all to hear and that this guy has fuck-all to do with the story. He's entitled to his opinions, however outre or bigoted they may be, but he is NOT entitled to his own facts.

      What a fucking weirdo! Is he also saying they fabricated an audio recording of his interview as well? The guy has reached Brittany-shaved head status.
