BBC Apologizes to Senator Cory Booker for Airing Interview Featuring an Imposter


Senator Cory Booker has been issued an apology by the BBC.

If you don’t know, in late February, a person claiming to be the Senator from New Jersey did an interview with BBC radio and spoke about the United States placing sanctions on Saudi Arabia after the disappearance and murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

“In our Newshour radio programme on Friday, a man claiming to be Senator Cory Booker was interviewed in what appears to be a deliberate hoax. We have apologised to Senator Booker and are looking into what went wrong to make sure it doesn’t happen again. The interview only aired once at 2000 GMT on Newshour on Friday 26 February and has not appeared elsewhere,” the BBC said in their apology to the Senator.

In other news, did you know the Senator is dating a famous actress!?
