[D] Any arguments that a Fake News Classifier trained on *English* news articles won’t work for *German* news?

I am developing a German Fake News Classifier for my master thesis. There are large labelled datasets (up to 1M articles) of English Fake News articles and therefore also pretty accurate classifiers (based on the text of the articles and NLP). Now I have to argue and explain why these classifiers won’t detect Fake News in German language. For me it’s obvious, it’s trained on English words, so it won’t work! 😀

Any ideas, arguments or scientific sources I could use to theoretically explain why it won’t work / why I need a dataset with German News? Thank you so much!
