Lest we forget, it was Galileo who discovered craters and mountains on that body and it was he whose last words were that the earth moves, that it goes around the sun. Fake news of course! He must be joking. Throw him in the clink.
The EU's recent 'edict' (source: EU Observer) abolishing April Fool's Day 'fake news' items and mentioning, in the same breath, the word 'Russia' appears to have had an unfortunate consequence.
Or maybe it's a strange coincidence.
Dear Frau Von der Leyen, in times like the present we need something to laugh at. Your predecessor the joker clearly understood that.
You apparently not? That's a question.
Following your April Fool 'edict' I appear to have a problem. The channel RT - Russia Today - now shows me a blank screen.
Fortunately I still have Al Jazeera.
But how long before it too is gone?
An Al Jazeera news item this morning said China's early under reporting is responsible for the pandemic. Can that be allowed EU?
Who decides these things Mrs VdL?

is a Zen My Ass April 1st Fake News Joke!
Alternative sources of news are essential to the understanding the world of today. I object to being told which news channels I may watch and not watch. I like to flick through Al Jazeera, CNN, Bloomberg TV, Euronews, BBC World and even the Chinese channel I'm still allowed to watch (for the time being). The TV has hundreds of channels. Most in German and most of them uninteresting.
The truth shall set you free. Although maybe not immediately. It was 350 years after his death that Galileo was granted a pardon by those who imprisoned him in his house for 32 years.
