In a world where misinformation runs rampant, it is easy to forget that the most prolific fact-checkers are news organizations themselves. Go under the hood and learn from the ASU News Co/Lab and the Kansas City Star’s work upgrading corrections for the 21st century in this engaging training session.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsrooms that would like to forefront and improve their corrections program
  • Journalists looking for training in CrowdTangle and other analytics tools
  • Anyone who would like to better understand how to “chase” mistakes via social media
