DigiPo News Analysis Project


1. Keep track of all places you find your claim.

2. Look at the coverage as you are tracking the claim back to its source. You may notice different inflections of the claim. Rewrite your claim if you see a significant portion of the claim's presentations are different from the one you have written.

3. If the story originated in an academic article, look to see where the distortion occurred:

  • In the article?
  • In the press release?
  • In social media?
