Germany’s largest newspaper, Der Spiegel suffered a massive embarrassment when it was discovered that one of their more prominent reporters, Claas Relotius, made-up many of his stories. To make the discovery even funnier, CNN had once given him their “Journalist of the Year” commendation. It was an opportunity Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson couldn’t pass up, especially considering the efforts by the CNN Media Team to bolster the left-wing ad boycott of his show.
And millions of people bought into it!
A habitual liar flourished at Europe's largest news magazine because his anti-Trump, anti-American stories were too good to check reads the headline at The Washington Examiner. It's true, a corrupt media, conformation bias plus Trump Derangement Syndrome has poisoned the minds of millions in the west thanks to Fake News!
