By Insider

A German reporter has been suspended for smearing herself with mud to make it appear that she had been helping clean up a flooded town.

In a news segment for “Guten Morgen Deutschland” on RTL, Susanna Ohlen suggested that she’d been participating in the cleanup efforts following the extreme flooding that had devastated the country.

Footage secretly filmed by an onlooker showed Ohlen smearing mud on her face and clothes before filming the segment.
