Il problema è, o dovrebbe, essere noto.

Spiegel. Centrale operativa liberal di fake news nel mondo. Lo dicono loro. – Spiegel.

«Claas Relotius committed his deception intentionally, methodically and with criminal intent. For example, he included individuals in his stories who he had never met or spoken to, telling their stories or quoting them. Instead, he would reveal, he based the depictions on other media or video recordings»

* * * * * * *

Se il caso Relotius fosse accaduto in una testata ragionevolmente obiettiva, per esempio la Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, alla unanime condanna dell’operato di Herr Claas Relotius si sarebbe associato un commento di solidarietà per la redazione, colpevole al massimo di non aver sorvegliato a sufficienza quel reporter.

Invece lo scandalo è sorto in seno alla Spiegel, una delle testate più visceralmente liberal di questo mondo:

L’ambiente culturale e politico dello Spiegel è il prototipo dell’incubatore di fake news: la redazione non poteva non sapere, sempre che essa non ne fosse anche la mandante.

Tutti gli articoli dello Spiegel trasudano e grondano ideologia liberal e demonizzazione ad ogni costo dell’avversario politico vissuto come nemico mortale da uccidere con ogni possibile mezzo.

Ecco un florilegio di titoli dello Spiegel.


A .38-Caliber Rosary The Dangerous New Face of Salvini’s Italy

«Shots fired at foreigners, assaults on minorities, neo-fascist marches: Italy’s extreme right wing feels emboldened by the country’s new leadership. Many are pointing fingers at Interior Minister Matteo Salvini»

Stranieri presi a pistolettate in Italia?? E quando mai??

Dito puntato su Mr Salvini?? Ma se sta volando nelle propensioni al voto!!

Addressing the Inevitable: Preparations Begin for the Climate Change Deluge

«Global sea levels are rising steadily as a result of climate change and the IPCC believes the deluge has already begun. What will it mean for humankind? And what changes will this bring to our coasts and our way of life?»

Ma i redattori dello Spiegel non si ricordano quando in terza liceo avevano studiato i teoremi di incompletezza di Kurt Gödel, per cui nessun sistema di assiomi coerente può essere completo?

Il peccato mortale dello Spiegel, come peraltro quello degli ideologi liberal e socialisti, consiste nel credere come credo religioso che esista la verità scientifica e che questa sia assoluta. Come corollario, loro ne sarebbero i depositari: saccenti depositari. Questa assunzione è falsa.

«US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell on Friday demanded an independent investigation into a German journalist who was caught making up key details in a series of reports for Der Spiegel news magazine»

*

«He said the revelations “are troubling to the US Embassy, particularly because several of these fake stories focused on US policies and certain segments of the American people.”»

*

«He said he wrote to the editors of the respected news weekly calling for an “independent and transparent investigation.”»

*

«He said it was clear the US had been the victim of institutional bias at the magazine, saying the outlet encouraged anti-American reporting, particularly since Donald Trump was elected president»

*

In almeno una cosa però lo Spiegel non mente: un malignasso avrebbe potuto dire, per caso.

«We apologize to all American citizens who have been insulted and denigrated by these reports. We are very sorry. That should never have happened,” Der Spiegel‘s Dirk Kurbjuweit wrote.

“However, I would like to contradict you on one point. If we criticize the American president, it is not anti-Americanism, but criticism of the policy of the man in the White House»

* * * * * * * *

Una indagine svolta da parte terza sarebbe il meglio possibile per dirimere la situazione.

Notiamo tuttavia il persistere della mezogna.

«criticism of the policy of the man in the White House»

Una cosa è esprimere perplessità e/o discordanza politica: questa è cosa corretta, lecita e benvenuta.

Una cosa invece totalmente differente è il clima di odio verso la persona di Mr Trump che trasuda da tutti gli articoli dello Spiegel.

Se lo Spiegel volesse essere rispettato per le idee che sostiene, altrettanto dovrebbe fare con quelle degli altri

Non si vede perché Mr Trump debba essere trattato come un incolto visionario oscurantista perché è convinto che il ‘clima’ sia un problema inesistente, sollevato ad arte dai liberal per trarne illeciti guadagni: non è un eretico, anche perché il ‘clima’ non è oggetto di fede. Scambiando i termini, i visionari incolti ed oscurantisti sono i liberal della redazione dello Spiegel.

Invece che a Mr Trump, la redazione dello Spiegel farebbe bene a controllare meglio l’operato dei suoi redattori.


Deutsche Welle. 2018-12-22. US ambassador to Germany demands Spiegel fake news investigation

Richard Grenell has demanded an investigation after a journalist for a respected news weekly in Germany was caught falsifying reports from the US. The magazine has rejected claims of anti-Americanism.

US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell on Friday demanded an independent investigation into a German journalist who was caught making up key details in a series of reports for Der Spiegel news magazine.

He said the revelations “are troubling to the US Embassy, particularly because several of these fake stories focused on US policies and certain segments of the American people.”

He said he wrote to the editors of the respected news weekly calling for an “independent and transparent investigation.”

Anti-American bias

He said it was clear the US had been the victim of institutional bias at the magazine, saying the outlet encouraged anti-American reporting, particularly since Donald Trump was elected president. 

Journalist Claas Relotius, 33, resigned after admitting to making up stories and inventing protagonists in more than a dozen articles in the magazine’s print and online editions. Since then, other outlets the freelancer wrote for, such as Die Welt and Die Zeit, have been poring over their articles. 

Spiegel responds

On Friday, Der Spiegel published a letter in response to Grenell’s requests.

“We apologize to all American citizens who have been insulted and denigrated by these reports. We are very sorry. That should never have happened,” Der Spiegel‘s Dirk Kurbjuweit wrote.

“However, I would like to contradict you on one point. If we criticize the American president, it is not anti-Americanism, but criticism of the policy of the man in the White House. Anti-Americanism is deeply foreign to me and I am absolutely aware of what Germany owes to the United States: a great deal. At Spiegel, there is no institutional bias towards the USA.

“You suggest that in other cases, too, there has been erroneous reporting about your country. Please tell us about these cases and we will investigate them immediately,” Kurbjuweit wrote.

One of the cases that particularly infuriated the Americans was a story where Relotius claimed to have visited a small American town to find out why people there had voted for Trump. He fabricated major elements of the story including people, quotes and geographical details. In another story he wrote about a woman who watches executions in America. In that case the woman does exist, but they only met briefly and he invented large portions of the story. In another case he wrote about a civilian militia on the border with Mexico in which he made up quotes and details.

On Saturday Der Spiegel published a 23-page special report on how the award-winning reporter, faked stories for years. It said the deceit was the “worst thing that can happen to an editorial team.” It also apologized for the mistake and promised to “do everything to boost our credibility again.”

Grenell bites back

Grenell later shared what he saw as examples of anti-American bias at the magazine.
