His 1995 interview with Princess Diana was widely resonant, and it emerged that BBC Editor Martin Bashir, who gained notoriety after that interview, had persuaded Diana to do so using forged documents. The BBC apologized following the completion of the investigation into Bashir.
The world’s press is talking about the fraudulent methods used by BBC editor Martin Bashir to interview Princess Diana in 1995. Martin Bashir, 58, who interviewed Princess Diana for BBC Panorama in 1995, was found to have tricked Princess Diana into using false documents, who were never convinced for the program.
Bashir, who used his brother Earl Spencer to gain Princess Diana’s trust, asked matt Weissler, the BBC’s former graphic designer, to create fake bank documents suggesting Buckingham had made news by paying journalists. Bashir, who delivered them to Princess Diana through Earl Spencer, managed to convince her for an interview.
Martin Bashir, who returned to the BBC in 2016 after many years, most recently served as religious affairs editor. However, Bashir, who was suspended due to health problems, had to undergo multiple heart surgeries. The BBC announced last week that Bashir had resigned from his post.
The BBC has been criticized in many respects in today’s report of an independent inquiry into allegations res relying on an interview with Princess Diana, Prince Charles’s wife. The BBC apologized “fully and unconditionally” for the mistakes made.
