Thanks to everyone who attended my fact-checking session today at the ACES conference. If you want to see my slides (including the three I skipped because I’m long-winded), here they are:
The ACES: The Society for Editing conference is back in person this week, after a two-year virtual run, and Thursday afternoon I’ll be talking about doing fact-checking on the fly.
A lot of my presentation will be about getting a list of trusted sources, and I’m always interested in adding to that list. So if you have good trusted sources, put them in the comments here.
Meanwhile, I’m not really going to be spending a lot of time on social media or video verification, but in today’s climate, those are really important topics.
Here’s a video I made for one of my online classes about vetting video posted on social media.
Meanwhile, if you are in San Antonio at ACES this week, my session is right after the lunch break on Thursday. See you there!
