Fake news

This ad, which aims to extract $300 from you to buy bitcoins, presents itself as text Journalism (With the real logo of this newspaper). The title is amazing. “Big scandal: ICI Télé management refuses to make comments about its employee Guy A. “LePage.”

You should already know because Jay A. Not an “employee” of Radio-Canada. But the first paragraph of this fake press transcript is completely fake: “During the live broadcast Everyone is talking about itA serious scandal broke out between host Jay A. Lepage and guest Normand Brathwaite. During a lively discussion, Guy A. LePage confirmed the validity of Normand Brathwaite's comments, calling him a liar in front of thousands of live viewers. In response to this incident, the channel's management decided to remove the interview from the broadcast, and refused to comment on Guy A. Lepage's position and behavior.

seriously? Is there anyone who read this and believed it? Do you really think Jay A. He would call Normand a liar in front of hundreds of thousands of people and that… the show could disappear from the airwaves with the wave of a magic wand?

Here is the dialogue that is supposed to happen: Guy A.“You're barely working – it's impossible to believe you're living on one salary! A year ago, you were driving an old car and living in a small apartment. How did you manage to change all that?” Norman: “It's only been a year? For me it was like a past life! Today I live in a country house. A month ago I bought a rented apartment, got rid of my old car long ago, and now I drive a new Land Rover. Hahahahahahaha! Normand Brathwaite who was driving an old car And he lives in a small apartment? At least we can say that these scammers have a sense of humor. That people believed this hideous scam and then clicked on the link that leads them to donate $300 to buy bitcoins and become as rich as Normand… leaves me speechless.


On Wednesday, at QUB, Normand Brathwaite told me: “I'm not afraid of AI, I'm afraid of the people using AI.” He added: “Instead of finding it funny, I started to feel blessed, because you work your whole life to build a good reputation. What's more, their product is rubbish!

What's even more shocking is that these unscrupulous companies rely on the gullibility of vulnerable people!
