Martin Bashir Biography

Martin Bashir was a British journalist and news anchor who came to prominence on British television with his BBC interview with Diana, Princess of Wales, and then his fly-on-the-wall documentary with pop singer Michael Jackson on ITV. He is known for having worked for MSNBC as a political commentator. He started his career as a journalist in 1986 when he worked for the BBC on the program "Songs of Praise". He gained further attention as an anchor for ABC's program "Nightline". He is also recognized for playing bass guitar and recorded the reggae album "Bass Lion" in October of 2010. Bashir was appointed as BBC News Religious Affairs correspondent from October 2016, taking over the post from Caroline Wyatt. He resigned from his position at MSNBC on 4th December 2013 after he made comments described as "ill-judged" about the former Governor of Alaska and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. In recent news, a BBC report on the "Panorama" scandal claimed that Earl Spencer may have greased the wheels for Martin Bashir's fake bank statements that led to his interview with Diana.
