CNN gave a leg up to German fraudster Claas Relotius

The journalist profession is colluded down to its last fibers, cramped up with con artists, fakers, and press soldiers. They invent story details, characters, interviews. They cross-reference each other and give each other “prizes” and “awards.” Over the years, a qua criminal network evolves.

So it happened in the cause Claas Relotius, a German fraud and faker, who was given up a leg by CNN, the American “Crap News Network.” The Network awarded Relotius the CNN Journalist of the Year award without him ever been working for CNN. Now, 4 years later in hindsight, the award is a disgrace to CNN.

“The case has recalled other cases of fabrication in journalism, including those by Stephen Glass, a magazine writer whose inventions were found out in 1998; Jayson Blair, a New York Times reporter who resigned in 2003 after editors discovered “frequent acts of journalistic fraud”; and Janet Cooke, a Washington Post reporter who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1981 for an article the paper later determined to be untrue.”-New York Times

Relotius was finally exposed in Germany in December 2018 as a lifelong fraud and journalist misfit. CNN obviously has helped him to pursue and perfect his criminal career up to that point.

“His work had received awards from CNN, but a CNN spokesperson said, ‘Relotius was not associated with CNN, he never worked for the company and never had anything published on CNN platforms.'”-CNN
