Critical (not cynical) thinking is the hardest part of journalism and the mother’s milk of investigative work. We will take a high energy interactive romp through tons of real examples of lies, fabrications, photo alterations and video trickery that are out there waiting for you. You will learn how to find the metadata hidden in photos and documents. You will see how even live video feeds can lie and how tiny production tools can totally alter the truthfulness of a story. You will learn a lot of great new skills at IRE but this hour of learning may just save your reputation.
