Thursday, December 6, in the number of foreign and local mass-media there were messages that at the age of 88 years died on the world-renowned French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard. Already made data about this in Wikipedia. And then there were denials…
It turned out that the source of the fake death Godard is a page Tommasso Debenedetti on Twitter. It was created by Italian journalist December 6, 2018 for five hours before it launched its fake. The first was written in English and began with the word urgent – URGENT. Then followed the statement: “the Swiss Federal Council received the report about the death of film Director Jean-Luc Godard”.
Immediately followed by a second short “tweet” in German: “URGENT. Jean-Luc Godard died”. Followed by another: “the Ministry of culture of France confirmed the death of the film Director Jean-Luc Godard. An official statement in this regard is expected in the near future.”
And then Debenedetti posted a tweet in which he said that his Twitter account is created to spread fake news.
