NOTICIAS FALSAS: BitCoin Scandal article in Spanish!

Posted by

Aside from undermining truth in journalism, destroying credibility of major news outlets, empowering the general public with dangerous misinformation, and casting a long shadow of doubt over everything that we hear or read in the news, fake news stories are pretty fantastic!

This week, I read a news story about a man who was arrested in NYC after making over $1 million selling modified Chuck E Cheese coins as BitCoin. Since the Bex family loves cryptocurrency, I of course was drawn to this preposterous story!

Surprise, surprise–the story about the man selling scratched-off coins with capital ‘B’s written on them with permanent markers was fake news. Regardless–I have a feeling that each one of you has a group of students that would DEVOUR this story when they see it in your class library during FVR time!

I was much more careful this time to label this as a fake news story, and I accept BitCoin as payment (or you can just download it FREE here).

  1. Wonderful idea, Martina, as always! Just wanted to let you know there’s an error this sentence at the end of the middle column: “Compraron las monedas falsas con dólares americanas.” It would be “americanos” . Not trying to be a killjoy, just helping out!
