Veteran German journalist planning exclusive reports for FWM

Intrepid German reporter Manuel Ochsenreiter has announced exiting new plans for 2019 to bring readers of Free West Media fresh analysis, reports and interviews.

Published: December 23, 2018, 8:14 am


    In combatting fake news, Oschenreiter plans to do on-the-spot, exclusive coverage from Berlin, Eastern Europe, eastern Ukraine and Syria. He is widely considered to be a Syria and Middle East expert.

    In 1995 he was one of the authors in the Roland Bubik anthology Wir 89er , in which twelve representatives of a generation of “young conservatives” presented their 1968 opposition movement.

    Ochsenreiter, today a journalistic heavyweight, was also one of the youngest editors while heading the department Zeitgeist & Lebensart of the Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit.

    Thorsten Thaler , deputy editor-in-chief of Junge Freiheit , has praised Ochsenreiter’s contributions to the understanding of the rise of Islamism and leftist radicalism.

    Ochsenreiter was editor-in-chief of the German Military Journal (DMZ) from 2004 to 2011, but during this time, the coalition red-green federal government prohibited the libraries and specialist information centers of the Bundeswehr to continue to source the journal because it was part of the “right-wing extremist spectrum”.

    Readers of FWM are already familiar with Oschenreiters fearless contributions from the conflict-ridden Syria as well as Donbass.
