Re: RIP Eddie Murphy

Is this verified? Looks dodgy like.

His brother died last week.

Right. Charlie Murphy is dead, not Eddie.

Re: RIP Eddie Murphy [Eddie Murphy not dead]

Definitely fake. Either confused him with his brother or with Cuba Gooding Snr.

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-39657941

Age given is also wrong. Eddie Murply is 56.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_Murphy

As said by one of the commentators, the site only prints fake news items.

Now that is a topic on it´s own, a news site that publishes only fake news.
We know from a recent election, (can´t remember who´s) that fake news can become real news, society is kinda stupid that way. How can the intellectually challenged trash TV watchers make up their minds on important issues? Yonks back there was some effort to watermark news pictures with something like "probability 60%, or so which beggers the question over how far can free speech be allowed?

I almost fell for this as well. They should be charged for libel.

Ah, but you must remember that this is now acceptable, it's what is known as "Alternative Facts"!

And we are happy with that? We shrug it off as "acceptable?" Where is the world wide outrage?

Does this, in your opinion, characterize FMF, too?

Re: RIP Eddie Murphy [Eddie Murphy not dead]

Absolutely not, in fact I really don't know which global news feed offers anything neutral and 100% factual to allow the viewer/reader to come to their own educated conclusion. My father, who recently passed away, said he was reduced to watching Al Jazeera for any semblance of truth!!

Wasn´t talking about people who go out of their way to look for 100% content, there are a few pearls in the sea of trash and all the kudo´s to people like your father.... however the majority wants the easy digested pre-chewed or better pre-though news that they wish to hear. They will no longer tolerate news that does not fit into their Weltanschauung. If I were to be prophetic I would say that these people will give their way of thinking to the next generation who will become the opinion makers of tomorrow... and if I were to spin this further, then that is how religions start with all the "my god´s dick is bigger than your god´s" that goes with it.
