(NOT) LAST CHRISTMAS

Is A British Tabloid Lying About George Michael’s Recovery From Pneumonia?

The Agence France-Presse reports that pop singer George Michael’s doctors are generally optimistic about his recovery from pneumonia—he may even get to spend Christmas at home with his porn-star boyfriend Fadi Fawaz. That’s great! But has the UK Tabloid The Daily Mirror wrongly quoted Fawaz to make Michael’s recovery seem better than it is?

The Mirror claims that Fawaz tweeted the following message: “Christmas at home. I cannot stop smiling today, the best day ever. He is getting better and better. Nothing to worry about, happy days.”

The only problem: no such tweet appears on Fawaz’s Twitter page, nor has any other paper reported the alleged post.

Is The Daily Mirror making some early Christmas wishes and putting them in Fawaz’s mouth?

      The implication, therefore, is that he is dying of AIDS, right?

      Speaking of aids, no post on the fda approving vaccine trials in the us on an experimental vaccine that worked wonders in mice?

      It’s a British tabloid. Of course it’s lying.

      The Daily Mail is better known as The Daily Fail.

      the only thing printed in a tabloid that you can really believe is the price!

      He actually said that on the phone and the Mail was ‘hacked’ in.

      According to a George Michael forum the tweet existed and was then deleted. The tabloid probably got it from there
