Common Misconceptions About Bitcoin – A Guide for Journalists
by Vitalik Buterin

Here are two of the five:

Quote
The Bitcoin price did NOT fall to $0.01 in June 2011. [...] The root cause was a security mishap at a third party service.  Aside from the attacker, no human being was, at any point, willing to sell bitcoins at anything close to $0.01.

Bitcoin is NOT (yet) seeing massive growth in usage to evade trade sanctions in Iran. [...] The media took a single story of an Iranian earning bitcoins by selling music on CoinDL and wrongly extrapolated to a story about Iranians switching to Bitcoin en masse.
