Are the Headlines too sensational?Are the story content matching the headline?Are the pictures driving the story? or adding to it?

Are you looking at Clickbait?

Example of a poor story.Website has incomplete "About" section. The page is riddled with grammar errors.The layout is built around advertisementsThe quotes and text appear to come from several other stories merged together

Note: Several sources use the same (or similar) image. Reverse Image searching indicates these likely come from same site hosting free space pictures. Verdict: Not necessarily a sign of Misinformation.

Example of Good StoryGeneric Image. But proper attributions given to photographer and source.Within first paragraph there is clear explanation and citation to Nature journal.Author has adequate biography explaining their connection.

A web app like NewsGuard can indicate if the source is credible and sticks to journalistic standards.
