MKeep on reporting Eidean: Everything on the Internet is not perfect. Editorial Network Germany (RND) is now concerned about the fact that many people prefer to diligently distribute screenshots without looking closely. pop singer Michael Wendler shared a picture on their Telegram channel that appears to be coming from the RND and shows CDU health politician Irwin Rudel with a purported quote: “I expect to be completely back to normal by March 2022. Until then , the unaffiliated should be brought to a final solution.” says there.
According to RND, it is a fakeWhich has been circulating on social networks for several months.

Until then, what matters to them will have to be weighed.” ” An interview given to the news portal by Joe Rudel, then chairman of the health committee in the Bundestag.
According to RND, hundreds of people have already shared the fake. Shortly after publication, Marco Fenske, editor-in-chief of the RND, described the picture as “disgusting”: “We will report the matter to the Central Office for Hate Crimes.”
Rudel also denied that the quote belonged to him. “The current picture was fake,” a spokesman for his constituency office told AFP news agency in late September. Since then, RND has demanded the deletion of the post under the fake tweet.
The fact that Michael Wendler has now also picked up on forgery was taken as an opportunity at RND to publish a lengthy article on the subject. “It certainly won’t surprise anyone that ‘The Wendler’ (‘doesn’t care’), as a man in denial of reality, before lashing out at his nearly 140,000 followers on Telegram with some blatant fake crap does not research. pop-bag platforms,” it says.
