Cuban media and Internet users denounced a new fake news attributed to Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel and an alleged Facebook page of the president.
The lie attributes to the head of state a call to Cuban artists to the concert for Peace in Venezuela.
“We are facing a new fake news (…) For some time now there has been a page on Facebook, which allegedly belongs to President Díaz-Canel. This page is false and between copies of the content of the real account of our President in Twitter, at all times public statements that are not real,” warns the portal Cubadebate.
In this regard, it denounces the new maneuver, it says: “we already know what is hidden behind this lie” and it reminds social network users that the head of state “does not have an official Facebook page yet”.
Meanwhile, the daily Juventud Rebelde publishes on Twitter that “the enemy never tires of mounting lies and Fake news against Cuba, like this alleged call to artists.
In six decades of Revolution, the Caribbean nation has faced armed aggressions, terrorist actions, biological warfare and a sustained media attack with manipulation and misrepresentation as spearheads, a crusade that has escalated with the arrival of new information and communication technologies.
Diaz-Canel does have an account on the social network Twitter, in which since Oct. 10, the date on which he issued his first tweet, he has almost 98,000 followers.
The support for Venezuela, the Bolivarian Revolution and its president, Nicolás Maduro, the call to vote Yes for the new Constitution of the island and his travels around the country, in which he dialogues with the Cubans, stand out among the issues tuited daily by the dignitary.
