British tabloid The Daily Star Sunday routinely puts out sensational tales of snipers killing Islamic State fighters in spectacular fashion, but an expert analysis reveals many flaws in the anonymous journalist’s reports.
Stories of snipers saving “hundreds of lives” by killing a suicide bomber and taking out four ISIS terrorists with a single shot have quickly gone viral, generating dozens of headlines in major news outlets. It would appear as though the reporter, Patrick Williams, either sits on a source network most journalists could only dream of or he simply has a wild imagination.
Oddly, The Daily Star Sunday — one of Britain’s most popular weekend tabloids — refuses to prove Williams actually exists. His bylines only appear in the Star Sunday. He has no digital signature outside of the outlet, and the Star Sunday has refused to arrange an interview with him about several of his stories.
