How are you sure that great source with the perfect quote isn't too good to be true? Even great reporters can get tricked by fake names or sketchy backgrounds. We'll walk through some websites and strategies you can use to create a routine and spot potential red flags before you get burned. This session is great for new reporters or anyone who wants to background people more thoroughly.

The Demo Track is sponsored by Knight Foundation. IRE retains control of content, including the topic and speaker selection, for all conference sessions.
