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.
On the 3rd of December 2017, an article was posted on the patriot post claiming the Jacksonville Jaguars, an NFL team since 1993, was filing bankruptcy because of the kneeling of multiple players on the team. On August 14th 2016, Colin Kaepernick started a protest by kneeling during the national anthem that is sang before every NFL game. His cause for this process is to raise awareness on the racial inequalities present in the Unites States of America.

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.
