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.

In the news article that I chose, the main subject is “Cognitive Ability and Vulnerability to Fake News”, which is the title of the article, and it is written by David Z. Hambrick, Madeline Marquardt on February 6, 2018. You can find it on Scientific American. It talks about a study that prove there is a link between cognitive ability and vulnerability to fake news. Researchers find out a major risk factor for damaging effects of misinformation. The study demonstrate that older adults are particularly affect by fake news; they have more tendency to think it is true information.

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.

It was written by Chris Mills, a news editor, and was published on January 29th, 2018.

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.
