Dr. Ulfkotte comes clean and admits he was secretly on the payroll of U.S. intelligence. “Moreover, Ulfkotte said that some media outlets are just an appendage of NATO propaganda service.”:
RT: ‘Bought Journalism': Dr. Udo Ulfkotte a German bestseller reveals that CIA pay Western media for spin & bias
The media is a key tool in the battle for hearts and minds. But a bestseller by German author reveals some details on journalism that would be considered too outlandish, even in a spy novel.

The sound of a Mockingbird singing?

MOCKINGBIRD: The Subversion Of The Free Press By The CIA

"You could get a journalist cheaper than a good call girl, for a couple hundred dollars a month." - CIA operative discussing with Philip Graham, editor Washington Post, on the availability and prices of journalists willing to peddle CIA propaganda and cover stories. "Katherine The Great," by Deborah Davis (New York: Sheridan Square Press, 1991)

"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media." -- William Colby, former CIA Director, cited by Dave Mcgowan, Derailing Democracy

"There is quite an incredible spread of relationships. You don't need to manipulate Time magazine, for example, because there are [Central Intelligence] Agency people at the management level." -- William B. Bader, former CIA intelligence officer, briefing members of the Senate Intelligence Committee, The CIA and the Media, by Carl Bernstein

"The Agency's relationship with [The New York] Times was by far its most valuable among newspapers, according to CIA officials. [It was] general Times policy ... to provide assistance to the CIA whenever possible." -- The CIA and the Media, by Carl Bernstein

Any ulterior motives?

A review of the Wikipedia articles on Ulfkotte, both in English and German, makes clear that he (partly through his writings) has been strongly identified with anti-Islamic politics in Europe. I hope that his sudden 'conversion' concerning the wrongness of anti-Russian bias in news reporting isn't motivated by a desire to shift the public's animosities away from Russia and more towards Islam. Or likewise, by a desire to win credibility with the more critically-minded public, the better to serve US and NATO propaganda interests where operations against Muslim populations are concerned.
