For the past several weeks, a writer who goes only by "Ulsterman" has produced a series of interviews with a nameless "White House Insider," who he claims has close access to the inner workings of the Obama Administration. Since the first appearance of the "Insider" in September, "Ulsterman" has published more than a dozen supposed interviews with his own personal Deep Throat.
Some people have completely bought into these stories, while others have been more skeptical.
And for good reason. "Ulsterman" offers no evidence that he's an actual reporter, or that he has any legitimate contacts. The websites that he submits articles to, such as Newsflavor, are for user-submitted content, and have no editorial oversight. He is an anonymous person claiming to interview a second anonymous person. And as time has gone on, more people have begun to believe that the "Insider" is nothing but an attempt at a hoax, as the "interviews" have become increasingly conversational and unprofessional, resembling bad fiction more than actual conversations with a valued asset.
The important question is: can it be proven that "Ulsterman" has made up stories? The answer is: yes. "Ulsterman" has repeatedly made up individual subjects, given them fake jobs and employers, and fabricated whole interviews with these imaginary people. With "the Washington Insider," he kept his fake person anonymous, so that his fraud couldn't be exposed directly. But in multiple other articles, he wasn't so careful, and he simply presented fiction as if it were news.
In all, "Ulsterman" has used fabricated interviews in at least seven articles he wrote and published between September and November. Four of these articles he has already scrubbed. Below, you will see each of those seven articles exposed as the lie it is.
