More fake news sites to be aware of:
*NBC.com.co* is a fake news website that attempts to confuse readers as to the legitimacy of the stories it creates by using the popular NBC brand in the domain name. However the site is not affiliated with or endorsed by the NBC National Broadcasting Company brand.
The site was created on June 29th 2015 and is one of a number of websites that use the .co extension. .co is the domain extension for Colombia. Other sites include *USAToday.com.co* and *NYTimes.com.co*, and thus it is likely that these sites are operated by the same person(s).
The website publishes fake news articles that are typically mistaken for genuine news. In the past it has used the pseudonym “Paul Horner” that is a pseudonym used by another popular fake news website NationalReport.net, suggesting both sites may be operated by the same person(s).
