The evaluation of information is an essential part of information seeking process. The more you do it, the more you become skilled in it.
A research publication has certain characteristics:
Click away from the story to investigate the site, its mission and its contact info.
Do a quick search on the author. Are they credible? Are they real?
Reposting old news stories doesn't mean they're relevant to current events.
Consider if your own beliefs could affect your judgement.
Headlines can be outrageous in an effort to get clicks. What's the whole story.
Click on those links. Determine if the info given actually supports the story.
If it is too outlandish, it might be satire. Research the site and author to be sure.
Ask a librarian, or consult a fact-checking site.
