    Default Trust and verify: Digital Media in emergencies

    Just arrived via Twitter, so unread:
    A definitive guide to verifying digital content for emergency coverage

    Authored by leading journalists from the BBC, Storyful, ABC, Digital First Media and other verification experts, the Verification Handbook is a groundbreaking new resource for journalists and aid providers. It provides the tools, techniques and step-by-step guidelines for how to deal with user-generated content (UGC) during emergencies.

    Default Reporting the news: produsers and UGC explained

    A useful, short account by a BBC journalist on how producer-users and User Generated Content have changed covering 'black hole' stories like Syria:https://www.opendemocracy.net/ourbee...room-practices

    But how do journalists make sense of what is happening on the ground?
    Journalists cannot be everywhere - at home and in safer places than Syria, so her findings are also important and relevant when it is challenging to report, either due to logistics or safety. The OBL raid comes to mind, with a local resident Tweeting from nearby or the profusion of cellphone footage during the Paris attacks.

    In the UK context was it right for IIRC Sky, then the BBC, to broadcast "live" the footage from Woolwich after Drummer Rigby's killer explained why? That remains controversial today.

    Doubtless there is a main thread already.

    Default What Le Monde learned from the Paris terror attacks

    Speaking at the News Impact Summit in Milan, Le Monde's Samuel Laurent shared what he and his team learned about managing rumours in breaking news stories

    (He concluded) A really important journalistic mission, both now and for the future, is to validate the news and say ‘this is true and this is not.
