Ronald L. Ray: German Reporter Says Most Media is Run by Intelligence Agencies

This is an old story now but I thought it fitted in well with Tom's post about the CIA and Hollywood. Some say I'm a conspiracy theorist, well, maybe, but the evidence for some conspiracies is good. I'm a liberal so I don't buy into the crazy theories of the right, but I do believe that the CIA has its fingers in everything.

People on the mainstream right and left may say that Dr Udo Ulfkotti is exaggerating or making it up, but I believe him. Why, because it fits in with my narrative and everything I have read, but the books and blogs that I have read fit in my narrative too and that's why I chose them. I don't normally go to right wing sites to get my information except for Ron Paul.

AMERICAN FREE PRESS frequently exposes the noxious collaborators with tyranny who operate the mainstream media. Now a courageous German former journalist, Dr. Udo Ulfkotte, has written a powerful new bestselling book that exposes the rampant cooperation of the “Fourth Estate” with the world’s largest intelligence agencies, trans-Atlantic organizations, banks, corporations and billionaires, making it into a political “fifth column.”

The book, Gekaufte Journalisten (literally, “Bought Journalists”), is not yet in English, but this writer interviewed Ulfkotte on October 17 to bring this newspaper’s readers his stunning revelations. Admitting first his own guilt of participating in the destructive underworld of journalism, Ulfkotte fearlessly names other collaborators in his latest work and calls for a return to a free and morally-upright press. The book has garnered worldwide interest, but the German journalistic establishment is giving it the “silent treatment”—and worse.

Former Journalist Udo Ulfkotte in His Own Words

“I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I’ve been educated to lie, to betray—and not to tell the truth to the public. . . . The German and American media [is trying] to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia. This is a point of no return, and I am going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do, and have done in the past, because they are bribed to betray the people not only in Germany, but all over Europe. . . . I am very fearful of a new war in Europe, and I don’t [want to see] this situation again. There are always people who push for war, and this is not only politicians, it is journalists too. We have betrayed our readers. . . . I’m fed up with this propaganda. We live in a banana republic [Germany], and not in a democratic country where we have press freedom.”  — Udo Ulfkotte
