The fake war photographer – BBC News

Eduardo Martins’ story was too perfect even for the world of internet celebrity.
The 32-year-old from Brazil said he had been abused as a child and beat leukaemia as a young adult.
But he had turned his life around and now worked as a UN photographer whose experiences helped him connect with human suffering in some of the world’s most dangerous conflict zones.
His work appeared in reputable international outlets such as Getty Images, The Wall Street Journal, Vice and BBC Brasil.
In between trips to Mosul in Iraq, the Syrian city of Raqqa under the control of so-called Islamic State (IS) and the Gaza Strip, Eduardo Martins enjoyed surfing.
He shared glimpses of his life with his almost 125,000 Instagram followers.
Until it all came crumbling down when a BBC Brasil investigation found out that Eduardo Martins was a completely fictitious character.

    What's new? Conflict zone news is so often a dramatical propaganda production? Flood victims in Bangladesh can read TV film crew autocue and and be portrayed as conflict victims? Etc.

    So the BBC lied about the Harlow murder of a Polish man blaming it on Hate and Nigel Farage. Turns out this was bollocks. DO NOT PAY THE TV TAX.

    To all the people who think all mainstream media is fake news; why watch it? Just stick to your safe little echo chambers that confirm your more than likely bigoted world view and report far more opinion than fact. Go on; fuck off.

    Hey BBC, nice move disabling the comments on the Digital Blackface video. REAAAALLY nice move.

  23. I think I'm going to have to move to Germany as a refugee, firstly you've all fucked the economy, you've fucked that up, secondly, on a daily daily daily basis I face persecution and flat out torture for have the mildest autism, I just cannot understand the social aspect of life at all, and the government refuses to help, I'm being written out of society, cleansed, its the only sensible answer, isn't it?

  24. I'm in a living hell, I've not been hugged or shown any affection for 13 years, the biological consequences of not reproducing, they're very harsh, I feel sick and have headaches all the time, I can see escorts, and the symptoms stop for 12 hours, what am I supposed to do?

    Three stories on the BBC web page about the i phone X right now, THREE and all on the first page!!!… and not one of them have a negative thing to say about that pile of garbage.
    I thought the BBC didn't advertise?!?
    Such an obvious pay off to promote the i phone X… Fake News Channel.
    Where's my cut? Where is the reduction in my TV licence fee seeing as the BBC is taking payments to give products positive exposure.
