I watched a pretty funny video yesterday that sort of reminded me of what we are about to talk about. Sometime in the mid 1980s, there was a WWF show at Madison Square Garden and there was a celebrity that got introduced to the audience.
It was rock legend Sammy Hagar. He came out and wave to the crowd, and everyone seemed happy to see him. There was one problem. It wasnt Sammy Hagar. It wasn’t even close.
Now, this was just a stage show. If you are interviewing someone for a news story, you had better make sure that the people are the real people…
A legendary fake news organization was so eager to gorge themselves on the feast of anti-Trump press that they took a chance at an interview with Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) without asking too many questions. It proved to be an extremely bad decision that has cost them what little credibility they had left.
What we’re having trouble figuring out, is how they found someone so fake that they could fake the fakest Senator in America…
NBC Affiliate LEX18 reports, “THE BBC HAS ISSUED AN APOLOGY AFTER JOURNALISTS AT THE NETWORK INTERVIEWED AN IMPOSTOR CLAIMING TO BE SEN. CORY BOOKER ON THE AIR.
BBC Newshour has published the apology on its website, and said that the network interviewed the impostor on air last Friday in what “appears to be a deliberate hoax.”
According to the BBC the interview “only ran once” and no audio or video could be easily located online so its difficult to ascertain how potentially embarrassing this could have been for the radical Democratic-Socialist Senator who once claimed to be “spartacus” during the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The interview was apparently regarding the recently declassified CIA reports that the 2018 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey was ordered by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
