2014 CNN Journalist of the Year Admits He Just Made Up Stories

On December 20th, 2018Claas Relotius was forced to resign after admitting that he routinely just made up stories and invented protagonists in at least 14 out of 60 articles that appeared in Spiegel. He had written for the magazine for seven years and won numerous awards for his investigative journalism, including CNN Journalist of the Year in 2014. This is just another example of the epidemic we have in Fake News of so many subjects – not just about Trump.

The greatest danger is that the majority of the people actually believe what they want to believe. The fact that news outlets think they have the right to twist the news and report only what they want to, or in this case, just make up what they want to be news, threatens our very foundation of society.

All now seems lost and there is no way to put everything back together again.
