An unidentified News Caster is a female news reporter who can be heard giving the news at specific points in the game (mainly about the war in the Middle East). Her main purpose is to give the player background info on multiple events that happen in-game. However, not everything she says is the truth. She told the public that the "six day" campaign was just small military struggles and nuclear testing, while dismissing further investigations, namely that of the missing Estonian cargo ship. Her only appearance is in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
False Information Edit
- She says that Russia claims that the launched missiles were a test that fell well within UN Protocols, when in fact they were warheads aimed at the USA to cause mass death and destruction. This was probably information released by the Russian Government to keep things in order.
- She also claims that the search for a missing cargo ship lost in the Bering Strait was called off. This is referring to the mission "Crew Expendable" in which a ship is sunk by missiles in the Bering Strait. However, she says the ship was lost "due to a major storm".
- "...and less than a day after the televised execution of deposed Arab leader Yasir Al-Fulani, US Marines stationed on high alert in the Persian gulf were given the order to invade the small but oil rich nation. His successor Khaled Al-Asad conducted the high profile execution personally on national television, accusing Al-Fulani of placing foreign interests ahead of those of his countrymen. While the exact time and location of the American operation have been withheld for security reasons, the US Secretary of Defense stated that the forces deployed would be significant, and that Al-Asad would not be permitted to further destabilize the region through military expansionism."

No comment was received from the Ultranationalist Party, where rumors of a possible leadership struggle has just begun to surface. In other news, the search for a ship lost in the Bering Strait due to a major storm has been called off..."
