Francois Bugingo admts to faking stories

One week after an exposé pointed out his repeated lies, Montreal journalist Francois Bugingo has admitted to fabricating news articles throughout his career, CTV reports on its web page.
On Friday night Bugingo penned a Facebook post explaining his actions over the past 23 years as an attempt to "capture the interest of the Quebec public to subjects that appear to be very distant."
He admitted to multiple "errors in judgment" including making up stories out of whole cloth, including tales of an execution in Misrata and pretending to be involved in a hostage negotiation mission in Egypt.
He also said he plagiarized all details of an event that happened in Sarajevo.
