Getting Paid To Lie
In this blood-curdling interview in 2014, German journalist-turned whistleblower Udo Ulfkotte, tells how he published the book titled Gekaufte Journalisten (Bought Journalists: How Politicians, Intelligence Agencies and High Finance Control Germany’s Mass Media), in which he stated that the CIA and other secret services pay money to journalists to report stories in a certain light. He was subsequently found dead Jan. 13, 2017, of alleged heart failure.
A journalist for about 25 years, including a stint as a newspaper editor, Ulfkotte explains how he was educated to lie, to betray and not to tell the truth to the public. “It is not right what I have done in the past–to make propaganda, to manipulate people. I’m fed up with this propaganda.” He says he was a designated “non-official cover” for intelligence agencies, where he helped them distort information in many situations and in the end they disavowed ever knowing him. Could this have been an eerie prelude to today’s mainstream media in America? Here’s more of this creepy clip on TruthVideos 1984.
