#1 As the Left always asserts, lies in the service of The Greater Good™

#2 Fabrications? The media considers it the 'narrative'. The legacy infotainment enterprises are a social construct.

#3 But, it's a philosophy seminar: If a Cherman or Belchian cat lady believes it, is it true?

#4 Fake but accurate.

Note that like any "good" leftist he claims to be sick.

#5 Someone should start a Dan Rather Fake but Accurate award and hand them out like 5 year old participation trophies.

#7 More proof why my policy of assuming every reporter is a liar, traitor, enemy of humanity and just plain scum is justified.

#8 The list of fabricators misses Scott Thomas Beauchamp, the New Republic’s Baghdad fabulist. For some reason he is generally skipped, despite our Hemingway yearning to follow in his footsteps.

#10 Since I don't often read Der Spiegel, I didn't even know his name. The Spiegel (leftist) has an annoying habit of embellishing stories, which always had me suspicious. They have been doing this for decades.

The stories of Relotius fit the "narrative", that's why he got so many trophys. Now everyone is shocked like Capitaine Renaud.

But he's hardly the only offender. I'll stick to FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung,) and NZZ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung), both conservative/classical liberal.

If you skip politics, the weekly Die Zeit has some good stories, too. The SZ (Süddeutsche) is moderately left, but still readable.

Die Welt (conservative) is surprisingly good, too, given the fact that it comes from the same publisher who publishes BILD (biggest tabloid).
