The article elaborates on the phenomenon of crisis actors, hired by media for creating false news. It shows the examples of BBC faking the photos from Syria or false death of a student during the Velvet revolution.

Disproof

The news about BBC faking photos from Syria was published by Russia Today and British regulator OFCOM ruled that this RT's claim is false and that the broadcasting rules were violated by it (bit.ly/1UUYdHA), . The information about the dead student is false, but it wasn't made up by media but by the college dormitory doorkeeper.
