Rumors of Gates Death Exaggerated

6 posts in this topic

On 4 April 2003, South Korean Television Channels MBC,

YTN and SBS reported the Bill Gates was murdered during

a charity event in Los Angeles. The local stock market

dipped 1.5% at the news. Less than a half hour later the

News Channels retracted the story. It seems their story

was based on a film “Nothing so Strange”, a fictitious

report on the assassination of the Microsoft Founder. The

film’s promotional site includes writings such as this CNN

mock-up that may have confused the R.O.K. news

agencies... note the date.

"LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Microsoft Corp.

Chairman William H. Gates III was killed (Dec. 2, 1999)

in Los Angeles during an appearance at a charity event

held in MacArthur Park. Hit by two bullets believed to have

been shot from the adjacent Park Plaza Hotel, Gates was

rushed by ambulance to nearby St. Vincent Medical Center,

where doctors declared him dead on arrival at 12:46 p.m.

PST."

Sorry, I thought the words “Rumors” and “Exaggerated”

would deter such false hopes, but I understand the

temptation to clutch on to the phrase “Gates’ Death”.
