Challenge: A social approach to verifying sources in real-time crisis reporting
The London riots, Japanese tsunami, or Arab Spring. Information and human stories flood in, rumors spread, and images and data explode. How do we determine the authenticity of what’s being reported? How do we know someone is who they say they are? Use the social web, trust metrics, and other tools to help journalists accurately verify sources during the confusion of a crisis.
