"Germany's new domain"


A misleading and fake news site with no connection to CNN.com.

The site’s M.O. is publishing legitimate-looking stories to cover for their other, totally false articles. While much of the content appears to be articles about iPhone sales figures, programming, and other mundane topics, the text in these articles is often machine-generated gibberish.

The real reason the site exists is to publish elaborate, possibly satirical fake news pieces like Obama Signs Executive Order Banning The National Anthem At All Sporting Events Nationwide and Donald Trump Says The Earth Is Flat.

According to the site’s footer, “CNN” stands for “Carla’s Nice Nunnery.”

A domain's WHOIS records theoretically reveal who owns the domain. In reality, virtually all of these sites have hidden or false ownership information. The "creation date" value can be helpful in determining the true age of a site.
