In the article, YouTube’s fake news problems are not going away by Shephard, 2018. It is a peer-reviewed article as databases allow to limit searches for items to peer-reviewed journals only. It addresses the issue of YouTube not being able to have a solution for false news circulation on its website. Sources- this is a reliable website; it has cited the source of information presented. The article talks about the Stoneman High school in Florida shooting being either a staged acting or was reality. The article talks about David Hogg, who was a survivor and an activist for gun control, but a video suggests he was an actor. The article asks the questions of what YouTube officials, despite its announcement that it is working to curb the problem of fake news.
My stand in the research question is that it is true that YouTube spreads fake news, but some of the information in there is true. It cannot all be blamed on YouTube officials but also the advancement of technology along with the invention of new applications that make it easy to Photoshop and filter items on a video or photo hence the distribution of fake news

Fake News on Social Media: People Believe What They Want to Believe When it Makes no Sense at all. Article Authors: Moravec et al., 2019. The article is peer-reviewed. The material is scientifically valid, reach reasonable conclusions. It talks about how fake news of social media is increasing in the past few years. They conducted performance research with EEG data from 83 social media workers to comprehend whether they could spot false news on social media and whether the existence of a fake news flag impacted their judgment and cognition. They found that the presence of a false news flag triggered more prominent cognitive activity, and users consumed more time because of the frontpage. Though, the flag did not impact decisions about the fact; flagging headings as untrue did not affect users’ opinions. A post hoc study displays that approval bias is persistent, with users expected to trust news headlines that line up with their political views. Headlines that test their views take little cognitive attention, and users are less likely to trust them. (Moravec, 2019)
