Paul Martin

BBC's Palestine hoaxer Paul Martin tries to cover his online tracks

Paul Martin is a BBC-linked journalist who I exposed as a fraud last month, in a major investigative feature. Although a freelancer, Martin has been described by Newsnight as “our correspondent” at least once. The problem is that Martin has a bad habit of using false identities and making up stories, as my article showed. Since this story got out, Martin (whose real name seems to be Paul Cainer) has been trying to cover his tracks.
