Checkdesk is a collaborative space for journalist led and citizen participating fact-checking. We are doing investigative journalism on individual social media objects, checking incoming media and citizen media (\u201cReports\u201d) our journalists believe are seminal to understanding events we are covering. This work is saved into an activity log that is attached to these media objects on Checkdesk. The journalists can assign (and change) the verification status of a media object on the system.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EWe have four statuses for incoming reports:\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cul\u003E\u003Cli\u003E\u003Cb\u003EIn progress:\u003C\/b\u003E We\u0027re working to check this report - get involved and help answer any questions our journalists are asking about the report, or ask new questions you think might help us establish how credible (or not) this report might be.\u003C\/li\u003E\n\u003Cli\u003E\u003Cb\u003EUndetermined:\u003C\/b\u003E We\u0027ve checked the report and followed all the leads we can, but we just can\u0027t say to a reasonable degree of certainty whether this report is Verified or False.\u003C\/li\u003E\n\u003Cli\u003E\u003Cb\u003EVerified:\u003C\/b\u003E We\u0027ve corroborated this report with reports from other media, checked that the video\/pictures accurately represent what they claim to, and have established the source as credible.\u003C\/li\u003E\n\u003Cli\u003E\u003Cb\u003EFalse:\u003C\/b\u003E We have found evidence that shows this report to be false, believe the report\u0027s media does not show what it purports to, or have serious questions about the credibility of the source.\u003C\/li\u003E\n\u003C\/ul\u003E\u003Cp\u003EInput from members of our community (you!) is greatly valued in helping establish whether a report is accurate and credible or not - if you have information or corroborating media that could verify a report please share it with us here on Checkdesk.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EPlease note that journalism is a process of ever-uncovering an always changing and very complex set of people, events, statements, assertions, artifacts, and opinions. Checkdesk\u2019s notion of verified, is not meant to imply other than that a journalist has done work to assess the likely credibility of the source and the likely veracity of their output. Making this work explicit and visible is the heart of Checkdesk, it provides the means for our users to assess for themselves the reporter\u2019s assessment. So don\u0027t think of our statuses as a rubber stamp of \u0022Right\u0022 or \u0022Wrong\u0022 but as an ongoing process of fact checking and asking questions\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003C\/div\u003E\n \u003C\/div\u003E\n \u003C\/article\u003E\n\u003C\/section\u003E\n"},{"command":"refreshFacebook"}]
