How can you verify information in the chaos of a terror attack? Or dig up details about the suspects, like with Dylann Roof’s assault on a church in Charleston, South Carolina? Or the multi-site attacks in Paris last November?
Eliza Mackintosh demonstrates the tools and techniques used at Storyful for the recent #FDLive event at the Guardian offices in London.
Other talks at the event included:
- Bellingcat’s Eliot Higgins discusses advanced geolocation in Syria
- Reportedly’s Malachy Browne shows how he used verification techniques to get an exclusive story of bombs shipped to Yemen
#FDLive is a new series of workshops for journalists, hosted by global newsrooms and broadcast live online. Details of the next event will be announced soon.
