He had to Interview a "rather contemptuous relationship to the genre," said Tom Kummer in the SRF broadcast "Schawinski", his article, which had been exposed in the year 2000 as a forgery, had not been not journalism, but "entertainment at a very high level". The author, of the respondents living in Los Angeles, allegedly of Stars such as Sharon Stone and Bruce Willis, who lives since two years in Bern. His appearance on the television but hardly the entertainment value, he's striving for with his lyrics.
the broadcast began with a Bang. In the last "world week" published with his name signed an open letter with the title "Dear Claas Relotius" is not to be been by him, he said to the dumbfounded Roger Schawinski . In the letter Kummer gives his satisfaction to be the biggest cheaters in the German-speaking journalism. Has written to him as editor-in-chief Roger koeppel confirmed on the same evening to the SRF, in fact, not sorrow, but a "world-week"-author.

the Text of The Forger, the forger was, therefore, yourself a fake – journalism drives strange flowers. But Tom Kummer did in the half-hour TV show a little, in order to establish, at the latest, after the detection of the forgeries of the "mirror"Journalist Claas Relotius shook confidence in the profession. He repeated like a Mantra, his point of view, it is up to all editors – in-Chief, readers, but advertisers have been clear that his Interviews were pure fiction: Hollywood stars, art figures, which he had exposed with his lyrics. Who was not able to recognize some of the blame yourself: "So stupid it can, however, be no one."

But Tom Kummer had identified the culprit in the usual manner, immediately. On Twitter he spread after the show: "Schawinski was so harmless. Felt under-challenged ..."
