German Journalist Who Spilled the Beans on CIA Media Influence Dead of “Heart Attack”

“I was bribed by billionaires, I was bribed by the Americans to report…not exactly the truth.”

On January 13, 2017, German journalist Udo Ulfkotte died of a heart attack. Long-time readers of Liberty Blitzkrieg will remember his name since he went public with explosive claims about how the CIA manipulates and controls much of Western media.

Here are a few excerpts from the 2014 post,  “Non-Official Cover” – Respected German Journalist Blows Whistle on How the CIA Controls the Media.

“I was bribed by billionaires, I was bribed by the Americans to report…not exactly the truth.”

– Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of one of Germany’s main daily publications, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

This is where the concept of “non-official cover” comes into play. The term was recently described by German journalist Udo Ulfkotte, in a blistering RT interview. Mr. Ulfkotte was previously a respected journalist for one of Germany’s main dailies, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), so he is no small fry.

“Non-official cover” occurs when a journalist is essentially working for the CIA, but it’s not in an official capacity. This allows both parties to reap the rewards of the partnership, while at the same time giving both sides plausible deniability. The CIA will find young journalists and mentor them. Suddenly doors will open up, rewards will be given, and before you know it, you owe your entire career to them. That’s essentially how it works. But don’t take it from me…

Mr. Ulfkotte’s death was reported by Spiegel, which went out of its way to make him look as bad as possible. He apparently had a history of heart attacks. The below is from Spiegel courtesy of Google translate.

The controversial book author and political activist Udo Ulfkotte has died. He succumbed to a heart attack on Friday, as his SPIEGEL ONLINE family confirmed. The former editor of the “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung” (FAZ), which already had several heart attacks, became 56 years old.
