Navigating Misinformation: How to identify and verify what you see on the web
Descripción del Curso
Content from the social web is now used daily in traditional reporting, whether that’s a photo from a breaking news event, a viral video from YouTube, or a tweet from a politician. Research however, shows that few newsrooms are trained on how to verify social media content and even fewer have policies about the ethics of including this type of material in their reporting. Finding content on social media might seem easy, but if you can’t ascertain the provenance or verify the source, date or location of a piece of content, integrating it into reporting can be incredibly risky. We won’t just explain what the tools are, we’ll show you how to use them.
