Sarajevo: Fact-checking and verification with Marek Miller

Sarajevo - May 18, 2019

The workshop is an example showcase of bigger fake news and situations that actually happened in media, and ways they could have been avoided. I will be showing some ideas on how to verify the source, images, videos, texts and location using various free online tools. In particular, the seminar will be focusing on:

  • reverse image search
  • Google Maps and Google Earth
  • Google Translate
  • YouTube
  • other free and handy online tools for fact-checking and verification such as The Wayback Machine, WHO IS, Link Explorer, Suncalc, Video News Debunker, Mapchecking, and others.

The seminar is an eye-opener to those worried about the future of journalism as well as those who still think fake news is just another buzz word.
