Police: Chester Bennington Was Murdered

BuzzFeed News contacted YNW cofounder Sean Adl-Tabatabai, who used to work for British conspiracy theorist David Icke, for a comment on his site’s presence on the top 50 fake news stories list.

“The number one spot surely has to go to the Trump Russian dossier unverified report published by Buzzfeed in January?” he said in an email. (As his reply helpfully noted, the information in the Steele dossier is unverified, rather than fabricated, and is still the subject of investigation by law enforcement and Congress.)

Adl-Tabatabai also included a screenshot of a YouTube video titled “BuzzFeed Is Cancer” in his email
