The German show that said they altered the Yanis Varoufakis ‘finger video’ in an attempt to show the world the truth behind Europe’s “serious media” operations, now says the video is fake!
It turns out that there is more confusion about Greece’s Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis who appeared to show his middle finger to Germany and was strongly confronted by German media. The video explanation that now creators say is fake was produced by Neo Magazin Royale, the provocative German TV show that had also created the ‘V for Varoufakis’ viral video last month.
The creators of the video said that they wanted to prove that many media outlets that are considered serious and trustworthy don’t check their facts and are willing to show anything that serves their purpose these days. Later their station said that this was purely satire, adding more confusion to the case.
Yanis Varoufakis had said repeatedly that the video was fake and altered, but German media outlets quickly ran headlines calling him a “liar.”
Here’s the video by NEO Magazine Royale claiming to explain the truth (english subtitles kick in at 3:00).
