Fewer errors to regret
Jay Rosen's open-source reporting project names a director of verification: Craig Silverman, who runs Regret the Error.
Working with the NewAssignment.net team and you, we will conceive and deploy a distributed fact checking system to check and verify the information contained in NewAssignment.Net stories. We’re going to use a combination of people, protocol and technology to do this. But the heart of the system is the people. We need motivated, competent folks – you – to come together and create a powerful force for fact checking. Our goal is to mix the wisdom of the crowd with the best practices and technology available to achieve accuracy and transparency.
