Yesterday evening, a program broadcast in pseudo-direct on RTBF1 (the equivalent of France Television for Belgium) created a shock in Belgium.
This program “simulated” in a very realistic way, the independence of Flanders. Flanders is the Dutch speaking part of Belgium and has more than 50% of the inhabitants of Belgium.
This event strongly recalls the panic movement linked to the O. Welles program of the year 1938 that “everyone” had taken for a Martian invasion of Earth.
If the subjects are widely different, the controversy over power, the veracity of information and media ethics are common there ...
This "case" will undoubtedly still spill a lot of ink!
