The Not-So-Objective Moneybags Behind ‘Correctiv’

Correctiv, the “investigative journalists” consortium that concocted the story about the right-wing AfD party’s alleged plans for “deportation of a million immigrants,” is heavily financed by U.S. millionaires and by the German government, according to a Feb. 6 report by Florian Warweg in NachDenkSeiten.

The largest funder of Correctiv, according to its own website, has been the Luminate-Omidyar Group, owned by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar. The second largest was the North Rhine-Westphalia state government, followed by the German Federal government.

Even the German Wikipedia page says that “Omidyar works closely with U.S. soft power leaders: From the [State Department’s] U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), acting as a facilitator for information warfare-style projects in countries around the world.”
