In the centre of this documentary by NDR-reporter Klaus Scherer, are many so-called fake news stories. These – especially due to social networks and online platforms like YouTube – achieve millions of spectators. The BND, which for the first time allowed a TV reporter access to its video analyses, assumes that foreign governments are behind other fake stories. Author Klaus Scherer also scrutinises how established news desks handle their often unsecured sources. The Ukrainian Information Minister, as well as the speaker for the Israeli Army, also have their say, both of whom lament online lies, while at the same time extol the distribution of their own truths in connection with social media.
