consumers can conduct an automatic reverse image search to check that a photo is genuine. Young people are quite vulnerable to misinformation (Scheufele & Krause, 2019). One of thegreatest problems is that young users are inexperienced. As a result, they are less likely to tellthe difference between genuine and misleading content. It is also applied to paid content. When it comes to limiting the impact of fake news on young users, I think they should be taught how to evaluate content for trustworthiness. For example, users should look for a source of an article that appears in the social media post. Topic 2The chosen news story is a Russian interference to aid Bernie Sanders. The two selected newspapers are The Wall Street Journaland The New York Times. The article in The New York Timesby Barnes and Ember (2020) firmly states that Sanders denounced any helping
efforts from Russia. The article inThe Wall Street Journalby Volz (2020) focuses on the fact that U.S. officials warned Bernie Sanders that Russia is trying to help Sanders. The reporting of these papers is different because they target slightly different audiences (“Newspapers FactSheet,” 2019).
