The latest edition of the Verification Handbook arrives at a critical moment. Today’s information environment is more chaotic and easier to manipulate than ever before. This book equips journalists with the knowledge to investigate social media accounts, bots, private messaging apps, information operations, deep fakes, as well as other forms of disinformation and media manipulation. The first resource of its kind, it builds on the first edition of the Verification Handbook and the Verification Handbook for Investigative Reporting.
Editor Craig Silverman recruited top reporters and academics focused on disinformation and media manipulation to share their tools and techniques. The Verification Handbook For Disinformation And Media Manipulation is a must-have reference for professionals seeking to improve the quality of information for people around the world, and to deter and expose bad actors.
