Mainstream German Reporter: “Most Journalists Are CIA Operatives”

From what I gather through a little research he may be a racist, but that might be inaccurate so I won’t label him as such, and I suppose that would be no reason to disbelieve his story either, as it has nothing to do with race.

A former journalist for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung — a mainstream German news publication — Udo Ulfkotte (pronounced Ulf-Cot) has written a number of books and articles in his 25 year career as a high profile European writer, most notably anti-Islamist volumes dealing with his distaste of the “Muslimization” of Germany and other European countries. In his defense, somewhat, between the years of 1986 and 1998 Ulfkotte travelled throughout 60 countries in the war torn Middle East as a reporter documenting extremist jihadist groups, so his view of Islam’s principles has no choice but to be skewed to one side.

Mainstream German Newspaper Udo Ulfcotte wrote propaganda for.

Nonetheless, in an interview with RT last week Ulfkotte shocked viewers by stating he and countless other reporters — in Europe, the US, and basically every other country in the world — are bought mouthpieces and propagandists for the American Central Intelligence Agency.

“I’ve been a journalist for about twenty-five years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public.”

Obviously if this is true then Ulfcotte’s life could be in grave danger for exposing the covert actions of the CIA, which begs the question of why he is whistleblowing so loudly in the first place.

“I’m very fearful of another war in Europe… I don’t want a situation like that happening again because war is never coming from itself, there are always people behind it to push for war, and this not only politicians, this is journalists too… I have written…how we have betrayed [our readers] in the past just to push for war because I don’t want this anymore. I’m fed up with this propaganda.”

When asked about his affiliation with American intelligence services, Ulfkotte confirmed he has been forming his articles based on information he received from agents for years; not information he had found for himself through actual investigation, and certainly nothing he could fact check once presented with the data.

“Most of the journalists you see in foreign countries, they claim to be journalists and they might be journalists, European or American journalists, but many of them, like me in the past, are so-called ‘non-official cover’; that’s what the American’s call that. I have been a non-official cover.”

According to Ulfcotte, working as a “non-official cover” is when the CIA recruits a reporter who could be useful to them and puts them on the payroll. If the journalist is fingered as a spy the CIA will deny ever knowing them.

“All journalists from really big respected and recommended German newspapers, magazines, radio stations, TV stations; they are all members or are guests of those big transAtlantic organizations, and in these transAtlantic organizations you are approached to be pro-American.”

Continuing on in his thick German accent, Ulfcotte, a dual German-American citizen, explained how becoming a servant for the US propaganda machine comes about:

“There’s nobody coming to you and saying, ‘Well we are the Central Intelligence Agency, would you like to work for us?’ No, this is not the case… What they do, these transAtlantic organizations, is they invite you [to see] the United States. They pay for that. They pay for all your expenses and everything. So you’re bribed. You become more and more corrupt because they make you good contacts, you won’t know that those contacts are non-official covers or officially people working for the Central Intelligence Agency or other American agencies.”

A little later Ulfcotte recounted a memory of an article he was ordered to write about Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, where he claims he was given information by the German intelligence service about Gadhafi murdering his own people; a story he now says was a lie.

“I had no secret informations about Col. Muammar Gaddafi… they provided me with these ‘secret informations’. They just wanted me to sign the article with my name. I did that. It was an article that was published in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that originally came from the German Foreign Intelligence Agency. So do you think this is really journalism? Intelligence agencies writing articles?”

Hearing the interview couldn’t help but to remind me of the face of CNN and American magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt’s great grandson Anderson Cooper, a man who had never even taken a class in journalism before becoming the lead anchor on the most watched American news network in history. The only credentials CNN needed, it seems, was the 2 years of intern work Cooper had done for the CIA before they hired him. Strange coincidence?

Whether he’s being completely honest about his testimony or not, the point at the core of Ulfcotte’s story is more than believable and one many have been suspecting all along. It’s even more tenable from the intelligence’s standpoint. The mainstream news is pure propaganda for the government’s benefit, it contains slanted stories written for public control, and is not to be trusted in the least. With the luxury of the internet and the access to fact check at home, the mainstream news — TV, magazine, internet, or newspaper — has been proven deceitful by every person who has bothered to look into it. Still, if what Udo Ulfcotte said in his interview is absolutely correct, we can take some comfort in the hope he may encourage others and be the first whistleblower in a long line of media insiders, eventually gaining enough support to dismantle the machine permanently.

    • Thanks Maven,

      I read the article and found it interesting, though the translation made a bit hard to understand. One thing I take away from it is the fact the German Publishers’ Federation is talking about legal rental of reporters, not under-the-table deals with intelligence services, which Ulfkotte claims are how they are done — off the record.

      Personally I would expect the German authorities to deny Ulfkotte’s claims whether they were 100% true or 100% false. I also have no doubt, when looking at the situation from the intelligence agencies’ point of view, that reporters are used to push government agendas and form public opinion. Actually I think that should be an extremely apparent fact to anyone interested in researching it; or simply paying attention to the news with that little tidbit in mind.

      When I was researching Ulfkotte I must admit I ran into some information on him that I didn’t like. I’m also very skeptical that he’s promoting a book on the subject, but of course that doesn’t make him a liar as he is a writer and needs to earn a living.

      While I don’t consider the man a great person, I do consider him a great source based strictly on his decades experience in mainstream war journalism.

      Thanks for the article Maven! And to anyone reading this comment, be sure to click the link in Maven’s comment to read the German response to Ulfkotte’s claims. 🙂

    David Irwing/Albert Smith NUJ COMPLAINT
    According to press and internet sources author david irwing received a three year sentence for anti-semitc and anti-muslim offences,albert smith irish independent journalist can be found upon david irwings disturbed reichsmarschall web site promoting “banned” fascistic publications where such items can be his own words smith callously and insensitively introduces irwings goring diaries with the most medically inept and horrific of introductions gorings biography is unlikely to raise hackles

  6. their is alot of far right wing activity where mi6 agent albert smith lives type at google enniskerry nazis lots of cia manufactured sites also tourist german ww2 grave yard signs……sick

  7. 44b dublin bus drivers and 44 dublin bus drivers are working for foreign intelligence services here in ireland.the police and newspapers started a manhunt when albert smith tried to steal a mans laptop sergeant john heraughty enniskerry police

  8. Albert Smith Irish Independent will be in court on 18/5/2014 at Bray District court County Wicklow Ireland.Smith attempted to steal another writers laptop last year in April,it went wrong when the other man grabbed it back however Smith assaulted this writer David Dundale, Dundales work can be found on the socialist party of Great Britain,Dundale aint British and lives in Ireland for political reasons and maintains he isn’t a member of the socialist party great brtain.Smith on the other hand works for the far right he hasn’t apologized to the Israel Government for allowing Irwing to use his name to sell books on Irwings site,this really is the finest line of all the emmediate question is here will the judge listen to any evidence given by Smith in these circumstances knowing hes a closet far right bigot?
    Smith has been hung politically on the internet by V.Seths article..Irish Independent .NUJ complaint open letter forwarded to the national union of journalists this lletter is still live on the net as this article is published.Theres no connection between Dundale and Smith apparently Smith was waiting for him shortly after certain articles Dundale wrote on the internet shortly before incident coincidence?I don’t think so however the judge may look through this if hes the same persuasion,on the face of it Smith bears all the hallmarks of a failed inventory his book review of irwing was more personal than scientific leading to the belief that the smith is a closet further more theres no evidence that Smith has used the Irish police or the law to remove himself from this site,Amnesty international have been informed of this and the NUJ and yet he still remains a lifemember of the NUJ says a lot for the press and the NUJ in uk and Ireland!
