Don't Trust! Verify. Using traditional skills to vet new media leads and sources.

These days, journalists are bombarded by messages and leads via social media and traditional avenues. While it used to be enough to meet a source face-to-face or even via the phone, it's become more difficult to vet sources and stories when they come in via new technology channels.
In this presentation and interactive session, educators will learn the nuts and bolts of common social media communication tools and then will explore the best techniques to use in vetting stories and verifying sources.
As with many journalistic techniques, the process has changed slightly because the pace of news gathering has increased. But being accurate is still more important than being first, and this session will help you teach students how to focus on the importance of accuracy in a new media world.
