Margo Gontar, co-founder of StopFake project, and Sevgil Musaieva-Borovyk, editor-in-chief of Ukrainska Pravda online version, shared their experience in struggling against untrue information and facts checking methods in journalism.
Sevgil Musaieva-Borovyk paid special attention to facts checking in investigative journalism. “Investigative journalism has significant influence and incites fear of those, whose schemes will be made public and whose stories will be revealed eventually”, she said.
More than 20 representatives of mass media and business attended the master class. During the hands-on part, participants created false pieces of news and learned to detect imperfect figures, groundless conclusions and other disinformation on their own.
