You have been Bonanzaed #5: a fake audio expert

In a serie of blogposts I will show how Yana Yerlashova, a former Kremlin funded RT journalist, and  Dutch blogger Max van der Werff present all kind of nonsense on MH17 with the intention to spread disinformation. They use their company or label Bonanza Media for this. Hence the ‘You have been Bonanzaed’ like in ‘You have been fooled’. This is example 5.  The whole serie of examples of nonsense by this duo can be read here.

At 18:17 in the documentary Max van der Werff tells about a “German audio expert”. The man called Norman Ritter (from Berlin) was interviewed by German freelance journalist Billy Six in 2016. He investigated the audio tapes which were made available by the Ukraine SBU. He stated he found nine manipulations and doubts the authenticity of the recordings. Billy Six is a controversial journalist who made a documentary on MH17. He cooperated with pro Russia propagandist Graham Phillips.

Norman Ritter is presented by Yerlashova and Van der Werff as audio expert. However there is not a single proof he has any experience in investigation of audio. Ritter is a musician known for German electronic music and uses Alpha Boy as his alias.
