BBC apologizes for interview with Cory Booker impostor

The BBC has issued an apology for airing an interview with a man who claimed to be US Sen. Cory Booker but was actually someone impersonating him. The interview was aired on 26 Feb. on the BBC’s Newshour radio program. BBC said that the interview appeared ’to be a deliberate hoax’ and they ’are looking into what went wrong to make sure it doesn’t happen again.’

Raise your hand if you're surprised that the news media effed up this bad. Nobody? Thought so. But keep on trusting them anyway. (I'm assuming this newsvoice mess is going to resolve to the Cory Booker story)

Sloppy journalism by the Beeb? Just another mark of the decline into partisan, sub standard reporting.

Why are you complaining? a fake booker, would have to be a better interview than the real one. Apologize for thinking an interview with the real booker would actually be newsworthy.

It's really no surprise. "Journalists" don't actually practice journalism anymore. They used to investigate, confirm sources, do the leg work. You'd think it wouldn't be hard to confirm who you're talking to.

BBC has long stopped actual journalism and focused all it’s resources to spread liberal propaganda which means they have stopped looking for truth, closed their eyes and then mistakes are bound to happen.
