Hoax #2: VDB's "Suicide"

Who's worse, the Italian media or the Belgian media?

"What's being said is absolutely not true," Vandenbroucke told the Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws. "I am very depressed, that's true. Sarah (his wife) wants to leave me, now I am paying the price. But I did not try to commit suicide."

Yesterday it was the Italian agency ANSA who reported VDB tried to kill himself with a drug overdose. Today, Het Laatste Nieuws is trying to clean up the mess... the same HLN who "broke" yesterday's hoax about the Quick-Step non-raids.
