Workshop: Making time and space for fact-checking in your newsroom

Understanding how to verify content and sources, debunk misinformation, and produce fact-checking content is becoming a crucial part of the reporter’s toolkit, as has become especially apparent during the covid-19 pandemic and conflict in Ukraine. Yet there are challenges involved in this kind of work, including the need to understand how disinformation actors work and how to verify content.

Shayan Sardarizadeh, who reports on disinformation as well as on conspiracy theories for the BBC, will shed light on how to bolster these skills in your newsroom and give tips on making fact-checking part of your reporting workflow.
