ABCNews-us.com

Another fake news website has emerged.  It's in the same mold as cnn-internationaledition.com and cnn-globalnews.com.

This latest website is www.abcnews-us.com.  Today, it printed a story alleging that Warren Buffet has significantly invested in bitcoin.  The story also ran an alleged quote from an interview Buffet gave to the Financial Times.  Here's an archive of that story: http://archive.is/eTmvh.


















I could not find any news stories mentioning that Warren Buffet had recently invested in bitcoin.  The only such "source" for this news is abcnews-us.com.

I'm not sure yet who controls abcnews-us.com.  The WhoIs record from RegistryDB.com indicates the domain was registered by "Scott Lee," using the e-mail address bigstack1000@gmail.com.  The About page for abcnews-us.com is simply a copy-and-paste from a different fake news site called the Jackson Telegraph.  All that being said, it sure seems like whoever runs abcnews-us.com is a bitcoin fan, right?
