Reaction: Fact-Check It: Digital Tools to Verify Everything Online

“Always do a gut check,” said Daniel Funke.

A gut check is mentioned in almost every section of this webinar and something I often forget to do. I think it becomes harder to do a gut check if you don’t trust yourself so that’s something I want to work on to become a better journalist.

I didn’t realize there were so many free sites to check articles, pictures and videos. When it comes to videos I think it’s interesting to know the videos are mostly real just pulled out of context! I think it’s smart when looking at sites to check the dates first. I never thought about this or how to know for sure without simply picking through the comments.

#nuwebinar was super helpful!
