    They strip him 4 years later, another progressive lying rag across the pond, of course they didn’t do any diligence because it fit their narrative.
     
    Keep the Fake News Network TDS links coming, boys

    How does this tie into CNN? I also read the post from the people in this town that called this Der Spiegel “journalist” out as a blatant liar. Der Spiegel should can this guy and he should get black balled but not seeing CNN here.

    ???? CNN? I read this as reported by Der Spiegel a couple of days ago. He did NOT work for CNN, he worked for Der Spiegel.
     
    Typical, You never get your stuff straight. you are like the clock that chimes 13 times, never correct, not even twice a day.
     
    From CNN:
     

    “Relotius was not associated with CNN, he never worked for the company and never had anything published on CNN platforms.”

     
    Too bad you don’t know how to do mea culpa anymore than any of the right-wingnut media sites that frequently knowingly report false information.
     
    Here, from Der Spiegel, English version.
     
    [link=http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist/der-spiegel-statement-on-relotius-fraud-case-a-1244896.html]http://www.spiegel.de/int…ud-case-a-1244896.html[/link]
     

    It has only been two days since we went public with the news that Claas Relotius, a reporter at DER SPIEGEL, was inventing and embellishing parts of the stories he wrote for the magazine.
     
    Claas Relotius worked for DER SPIEGEL for four years and wrote many fantastic features. Unfortunately, [link=http://www.spiegel.de/international/zeitgeist/claas-relotius-reporter-forgery-scandal-a-1244755.html]most of them included passages that were made up[/link]. He wrote about people that he never met or simply invented them out of thin air. He described scenes that never happened.
     
    We can’t yet precisely assess [link=http://www.spiegel.de/international/the-relotius-case-answers-to-the-most-important-questions-a-1244653.html]the full dimensions[/link] of what has taken place, but we nevertheless decided to make it public. We didn’t want to leave that task up to others. We have begun the investigation process and will establish a committee whose task will be that of leaving no stone unturned. Because we want to know exactly what happened and why, so that it can never happen again. We have a lot of questions for ourselves, and the answers will likely result in quite a few changes at DER SPIEGEL.
     
    We are deeply sorry about what has happened. We have a large readership which can now be forgiven for wondering if DER SPIEGEL should still be trusted. We have many journalists on our staff who do excellent work and who must now face the reality of living under a cloud of suspicion. It is up to us to prove that such suspicions are unfounded.
     
    We are now fighting for our credibility and of course we are angry that Relotius so bitterly disappointed our readers and us.
     
    He committed fraud and we allowed ourselves to be defrauded: the top editors, the section editors and the fact checkers. We were always proud of our system, which includes numerous safeguards ensuring that stories are read by many different people. Our fact checkers examine each story closely on the search for errors.
     
    Now we know that the system is flawed.

            I wonder why the Right-wingnuts are so concerned about Der Spiegel anyway? “Reverend” Huckabee seems very put out about the whole issue. Never a word though about the constant information inventions from Fox or even Trump’s Administration. 
             
            Oh wait, it’s his daughter lying through her whatever. That’s why.

              Ask your boyfriend Glenn Greenwald why he’s a huge leftist in many ways but still reports the truth about your derangement syndrome, and all of the fake news out there. It’s funny when one of your ilk actually tells the truth, yet you post garbage ad infinitum. Dave Rubin is another that has found the left is entirely void of anything useful in rational discussion anymore.

                So CNN’s Jim Acosta goes to McAllen TX at a point where there is a wall made of steel slats and reports he sees no crisis. Duh! You went to a wall and all is quiet. What point did you prove Jim?  Another brilliant news story by CNN.

                  Duhhhhhhhhh

                  The point is that there is no crisis

                  Seriously how many illegal aliens do you know?

                  Do you fear for your safety from them?

                    Fox & Friends deceptively edited President Bidens remarks on Satchel Paige to exclude his mention of the Negro leagues in an attempt to make Bidens comments appear racially insensitive.

                    You can see that the video was edited because at the 11-second mark Bidens hand suddenly vanishes.

                      The edited version is kinder to Biden. The full length version just sounds like he is an old man losing his marbles.

                      Between him and Nancy’s drunken press conference rambling incoherently about bird-baths, it’s a frightening time to be alive.

                      Was Satchel Paige a war veteran or a famous quotable figure like Yogi Berra?
                       
                      Biden, no matter what context he puts his near-universal anachronistic quotes, is embarrassingly and inappropriate out of touch in speech.  biden is our sundowing-senior in-chief

                      Brandon rambled about Satchel Paige when he met the Pope. With dementia you fixate on a topic and keep talking about it.

                      That explains playing the constant stolen election refrain then.

                      Meanwhile in Paris Willie Brown’s mistress trying to “blend” so she speaks English using a French accent inflection. No wonder her approval is 28%.

                      28%. If she keeps at it, she’ll make it all the way to the approval rating of congress (which to quote Dave Letterman, ‘is at the same number as the percentage people who would be willing to eat a rat’).

                      I was kind of thinking he would be a better fit to stand on stage and rip into Trump. I think when it comes time to debates thats what should be happening. Talk up policies and compare yourself to the greatest grifter in history. Im not sure Biden has it. I dont see Kamala doing well. Pete might be able to get that BO kind of enthusiasm going.

                      If Harris stays in the high 20/low 30s approval, Biden might have to have some #realtalk with Jim Clyburn about keeping her on ticket (and/or even giving her big support should Biden not run again)
                       
                      Clyburn might really want a black woman to be President … but he’s also a realist who wants a [b]D[/b] President first and foremost.
                       
                       
                      If Biden can get Clyburn to pivot and let him throw Harris under the bus….

                      I have said it before: He is inspiring, just as inspiring as our county administrator.

                      A weak candidate was able to prevail against trump. I don’t think a weak candidate will be able to prevail against ‘generic republican’ come 2024. Gas is going to be 5 bucks and filling your propane tank is going to be unaffordable while Kerry jets around the world praising the chinese .

                      Magnetism & inspiration aside, I rather doubt the solution for all of us who believe in anthropogenic global warming is rowboats and bicycles for global travel.
