Hi, have been reading the book in Lisa's link. Starts slow and then gets very hip fast. Some cutting edge techniques on spotting disinformation.

I agree - there are forgers out there that are amazingly audacious and dont' think people have half a brain to check things like purported shareholdings, or directorships etc. But some are a bit more sophisticated and may even know how to scrub or fake metadata from digital documents...

Us old fashioned types cling to the adage - 'if it looks too good to be true, chances are it isÖ.í and then set about proving each step. Chronology is an imperative - as is a cold, objective look.So may times Iíve been approached with documents etc that simply donít stand up to the test of timing and practicality. Protocols in newsrooms - havenít found any of those, but Iíd prefer being tortured by my peers, editors, and in house legal if you have one.

Dear Cynthia,
came across the following yesterday on twitter, is a mere list, but still good to share perhaps (if only for the title ;-)?

Hi all
I am doing a talk on open source investigation and also how to evaluate leaked information.
I am planning to run through both verification of digital and non-digital material. Does anyone have suggestions of what I ought to include, beyond the obvious stuff like reviewing the verifiable materials (looking for obvious errors) and metadata for example, and checking out the source....

Do newsrooms have "protocols" to verify source information for example?

Any thoughts, tips or reading material is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Cynthia
