Trolling on Indymedia Ireland

category national | indymedia ireland | news report author Tuesday June 08, 2010 22:43author by 1 of imc - Indymedia Ireland Report this post to the editors

False reports of the death of Brian Lenihan T.D., Minister of Finance

Two stories posted this evening on Indymedia Ireland reporting the death of Brian Lenihan have been hidden by site moderators.

Two stories were posted on the site this evening, the first at 19.11, the second at 19.39, falsely reporting the death of Brian Lenihan. The 'story' was posted by 'Bethanne Killfoil' and a false RT email address given. Both stories were hidden promptly by Indymedia moderators.

The story was also posted on UK Indymedia at 18.10 and has now been hidden there too.

The 'story' was obviously not authored by RT journalist Bethan Kilfoil and would appear to be the product of a sick imagination.

It is significant that the 'story' was initially posted on UK Indymedia an hour before it was posted here, sufficient time perhaps for the author to utilise Twitter and other new media to disseminate the falsehood.
