Readers, don't be confused. Hugh Edwards has not joined any Bengali YouTube channel job. Instead, the BBC World News Bangla YouTube channel has created a fake video image using his image and putting another person's voice there. This channel is modeled after the BBC logo.

DismissLab, a fact-checking initiative of Digitally Right Limited (DRL), a research firm that researches the impact of technology on information systems, has identified 58 YouTube channels that are practically fakes of well-known foreign and Bangladeshi media. The channels broadcast news targeting Bangladeshi audience. Some have named themselves after well-known media names, some have copied logos, some are releasing videos using pictures of well-known presenters of the respective media.

According to the DismissLab report, the main task of fake YouTube channels is to increase their publicity (views) and earn through it. But they spread false and misleading information. They choose sensitive topics for video promotion. For example, on January 3, a channel named BBC-News BD reported (in the thumbnail of the video) that 'Army's paw in the election, the January 7 election has been cancelled'. However, the news is fake.
