What is NewsVerify?

NewsVerify is a news publishing platform with a verification framework.NewsVerify acknowledges the positive contribution citizen journalism is making to todays information landscape, and attempts to address the lack of fact-checking and verification in social media sources. It also addresses the delay media organisations face when publishing stories emerging from non-traditional channels. By ensuring that the verification status is transparent, it is possible to publish earlier, while further fact-checking is undertaken, maintaining credibility and keeping readers informed.

NewsVerify allows you to curate pieces of evidence from social media and the web, and tie them together as a news Event. An event has a verification status and narrative which can be updated as more evidence is added. Events can be collected together to form a Story. A story allows you to tie events together with editorial analysis and original content.
