Wenn die Stimmung nicht zum Kriege reicht, dann muss sie gemacht werden. Wie bereits beschrieben hier, folgt ein greifbares Beispiel, wie die großen Nachrichtenagenturen die Kriegsmaschinerie medial flankieren. Ein Zufall oder ein bedauernswerter Fehler wird es nicht gewesen sein, dafür ist das Thema zu wichtig.

Western News Agencies Mistranslate Iran’s President Speech – It Is Not The First Time Such ‘Error’ Happens
Yesterday the news agencies Associated Press and Reuters mistranslated a speech by Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani. They made it sound as if Rouhani insulted U.S. President Donald Trump as ‘mentally retarded’. Rouhani never said that. The agencies previously made a similar ‘mistake’. […]
Despite the above and other explanations the false “wipe Israel off the map” translation never died. Years later it still reappeared in Guardian pieces which required it to issue multiple corrections and clarifications.
Now, as the Trump administration is pushing for war on Iran, a similar mistranslation miraculously happened. It were again ‘western’ news agencies who lightened the fire:
The Associated Press @AP – 7:52 utc – 25 Jun 2019
BREAKING: Iran’s President Rouhani mocks President Trump, says the White House is “afflicted by mental retardation.”
Farsi speakers pointed out that the Rouhani never used the Farsi word for “retarded”:

A lot of Western media is reporting that Iranian President Rouhani called Trump “mentally retarded.” This is inaccurate.
Regarding Trump, he just said “no wise person would take such an action [the new sanctions imposed].”

Absolutely incorrect. There is a word for “retarded” in Persian & Rouhani didn’t use it. Prior to him saying “mental disability” he even prefaced his comment by saying “mental weakness.” Those who speak Persian can listen & judge for themselves. Here is a video clip of Rouhani’s comment:
But the damage was already done:

Alle deutschen Medien haben hier falsch berichtet.
Ist das dann die vielgenannte "Lügenpresse"?
