BERLIN — He told the story of a Syrian boy who believed he had helped start the country’s civil war with a prank. He profiled an American woman who traveled around the United States to watch executions. He brought to life, in astoundingly granular detail, the anguish of a would-be suicide bomber in Iraq.

Claas Relotius, a star writer at Der Spiegel, Germany’s most respected newsmagazine, won many awards for his reporting on the most important stories of the day.

Except, it turns out, much of it was invented.

I am looking for more to be revealed next month. Panic in DC and MSM is causing some to bail out before being called out.

Did you know that President Trump issued an EO changing the rules governing military tribunals under the UCMJ?

I wonder if he is planning to use them.
Look for the shiny things of God revealed by the Holy Spirit. They only last for an instant but it is a Holy Instant. Let your soul absorb them.

No industry is immune from con-men and malign actors. But the story highlights why, in general, Der Spiegel and other MSM sources are honest and reliable. When his fraud was discovered they fired him and publicised his deception, despite it being damaging and embarrassing for them.

The real purveyors of fake news, like Trump, would never do that.

And, of course, one 'MSM' journalist being shown to make up stories means that all of them are.

We really need a sarcasm font.

Ron - Do you have a link for that EO changing the rules for UCMJ tribunals?

Everything I've found is from seriously fringe sites.

The example I've linked is just one.
But obviously it's waaaaay out there.

Their primary focus is on UFOs.

And they refer to 'posts' from 'Qanon'. They obviously don't know jack.

You've made it pretty clear that the real info comes from [Q] in 'drops'.

Wouldn't it be lovely if Ron would tell us which exact part of those amendments he thinks is significant? One thing I noticed was that it appears to delete the offense of sharing without consent a sexual recording that was made with consent (revenge porn) which seems a positively Trumpian thing to do, but I kinda doubt that's what Ron was on about.

I also saw saw those whacked out fringe websites you mention, but funnily enough they've been wanking over the thought of Trump using the UCMJ against civilians since way before this Order was written. Chances are they've just hitched their fantasy onto the EO without ever even glancing at the contents. Hands up who's surprised that Ron's taken the bait?

That was mostly my point.

Oh I know.

I'm just saying that while Ron is probably borderline capable of finding and linking the real EO, he's also the kind of guy that would simply drop the entire 1000 (or whatever) page document and claim it as proof for whatever the hell he's talking about.

Yup.

Dang. Too bad he didn't work for FOX. He would have gotten a hefty promotion and an appointment to a Cabinet position for that sort of lying.



If he worked for FOX the lie would get lost in the pander-babble that passes for news. FOX almost without exceptions parrots trumps lies without challenge. Then their audience, Pavlov's canines, lap it up.

If FOX fired people for lying they would devoid of journalists, management and ownership. Within a day.

Well, to be fair.....





Comparing Der Spiegel to Fox is not realistic. One is journalism and one is entertainment. They can not be expected to have the same standards.
Always remember the brave children who died defending your right to bear arms. Freedom is not free.

Is it invent a statement to argue against day?

PS: Check out a history of banned books and censorship in the USA and you'll find a long and proud conservative tradition.

PPS: Have a third go at spelling 'opinion' once you've sobered up, you might just get it.
