I'm not dead yet!

Slain Russian Reporter, looking surprisingly well at press conference...
 
Apparently his death was faked in an attempt to capture real assassins.   :o

So is this 'Fake News' meant to smear Russia? 

Is it a 'legitimate' means of law enforcement to prevent a hit and capture its perpetrators?

Is this a case of fighting fire with fire? 

Does nobody give a damn that people are being trained not to trust anything 'the media' tells them? 

How many actual conspiracies does it take to make all the bat-*censored* ones seem plausible?

Dead Collector: 'Ere, he says he's not dead.
Russia Assassin: Yes he is.
Journalist: I'm not.
Dead Collector: He isn't.
Russia Assassin: Well, he will be soon, he's very ill.
Journalist: I'm getting better.
Russia Assassin: No you're not, you'll be stone dead in a moment.
Dead Collector: Well, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations.
Journalist: I don't want to go on the cart.
Russia Assassin: Oh, don't be such a baby.
Dead Collector: I can't take him.
Journalist: I feel fine.
Russia Assassin: Oh, do me a favor.
Dead Collector: I can't.
Russia Assassin: Well, can you hang around for a couple of minutes? He won't be long.
Dead Collector: I promised I'd be in Syria. They've lost nine today.
Russia Assassin: Well, when's your next round?
Dead Collector: Thursday.
Journalist: I think I'll go for a walk.
Russia Assassin: You're not fooling anyone, you know. Isn't there anything you could do?
Journalist: I feel happy. I feel happy.
[The collector paces for an idea, then whacks the body with his club, solving the problem]
Russia Assassin: Ah, thank you very much.
Dead Collector: Not at all. See you on Thursday.
Russia Assassin: Right
