I recently found a text, written by Nina Berman, an American documentary photographer as well as an associate professor at Columbia University, called « The victims of fake news ». I read this article on the Columbia Journalism Review website, which is an American magazine, published at a frequency of two editions per year since 1961 by the Columbia University Graduate School of journalism. This magazine treats about news, media industry trends, analysis, professional ethics and the stories behind news.

A new study from the “computational propaganda project” of the University of Oxford says that Trump supporters consume the largest volume of fake news on Facebook and Twitter. They explain it saying that the right wing shared and consumed the most part of the extremist, conspiratorial and bad quality news.

Who’s affected by fake news? The notion of fake news has made a lot of controversy especially in the last years during the contentious US presidential campaign. Nowadays with the omnipresence of social media, many falsehoods are spread to entice marketing money or to value a political cause. Although, fake news has repercussions far outside politics. Because of that, the verification of sources is now crucial for legacy media, but also for social-media platforms.

The current generation suffers from a global phenomenon called fake news. Journalists who publish misinformation that affects others in a bad way is mostly what generates fake news. These news are a big concern for the society because they often cause damage to individuals, political parties and institutions. For example, some journalists said that the Barisan Nasional government won the last elections because they had imported 40 000 Bangladeshis to vote for them when in facts, no one ever found a proof about this declaration and still, some people believe this story.

If you have a Facebook account, you probably saw one time an article using false information that could potentially influence your opinion on a subject. Well, an article post by the Anna Momigliano from the Washington Post on February 2 2017 is saying that Italy and Facebook as paired up to ban the most fake news as possible from the Facebook feed to make sure that electors from that country could not be influenced by those articles who could lead to disinformation at nearly one month of the election.

This article is about how the Australian population is now more aware of the credibility of the news they see on the social medias, such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. It says that this new consciousness also brings people to be feared about fake information and how it affects people’s trust on actual medias.  They are now more willing to trust the traditional medias (online media, newspapers, etc.). People are now more conscious about the difference between fake news and actual news.

The article I chose is about a person who writes fake news. The author is anonymous, the title of his article is “Experience: I write fake news” and he published it in January 2018 (https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/jan/26/experience-i-write-...). The author of the article was a student and he was starting to run out of money. He looked for a job and found out he could write fake news.

I’m going to explain in a simple manner the article I read that is called: Pope Francis vs Donald Trump: Each one has a guide to fake news — and they couldn't be more different. The article talks about, mainly, how pope Francis view Fake news. They compare their point of view, explaining how Donald Trump would just give you examples, Pope Francis would rather give you clue on how to figure out if a news is fake or not. It is more of a how to spot fake news guide.

This news article jumps right to the point when stating in its headline that it will be addressing fake news, regarding a train that hit a garbage truck near Charlottesville, Virginia. A passenger in the garbage truck died. However, just 65 minutes after this article was posted, a fully-fledged conspiracy theory was launched and promoted on twitter. The conspiracy states that the train crash featured republican members of the U.S congress, and it was a false flag orchestrated by the Deep State, in an attempt to avoid the release of FISA abuse.

Elena Cresci is a young woman who attended Cardiff University and received a diploma in Journalism and also attended Swansea University in English Literature and German.I would consider Cresci a reliable source based on her education level and experiences working for The Guardian and Channel 4 News. This can be seen as a credible source that can be taken seriously.

The article is well summarized, and we clearly understand the point. Because the words are well chosen, we understand your point of view in relation to this article of news. Besides, I have the same opinion as you in terms of the credibility of the article, it is not very convincing. All like you, I think it's important to check the source of an article. I think the article would have been more captivating if it had been more detailed despite the fact that there were a number of words to respect. In the end, it’s a very good summary.

In your summary, you mention that an event was narrated and interpreted in an inappropriate way, the facts of which were modified by social networks. I like that you made a link between this event and the reality of the fake news, a real problem for today's society. By using this news to describe the phenomenon of fake news, your text is more interesting. The reader clearly understands the information given. The way you wrote your text, makes the content intriguing. The comments you mentioned help to make readers aware of the reliability of the source of an article. I agree with you, I think that checking if the source is reliable is very important, since the fake news are more and more numerous on unreliable websites.

I laughed when you said that « older adults are particularly affect by fake news» It's so true! I already heard a woman who had read that there was a shark in the Lac-Saint-Jean and she believed it ! Older adults are too often naive with fake news because they believe everything even if it's obvious that this is not the truth. In a kind of way, fake news are dangerous because they are often considered realistic. If the fake news it's scary it can sometimes make some people panic. With articles on Internet, you have to remember that people can write whatever they want without it being true. You have to know how to select the true of the false!
