corrigo goes MoJo

  1. 1. 1 Based on the diploma thesis “conception of a web annotation system for improvement in German media accountability” Department of Online Journalism at Kersten A. Riechers {kersten@corrigo.org} h_da University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt, Germany Tobias Reitz {tobias@corrigo.org}
  2. 2. 2 Newsroom, we have a problem.
  3. 3. 3 Would you buy a car with such a high failure rate? (Silverman 2009: xv) 559 factual errors and 400 imprecise formulations have been found by the fact-checkers at German news magazine Der Spiegel. They would classify 85 per cent of the erros as relevant. Janssen 2010: 100 Published corrections represent two per cent of factual errors in newspapers. Maier 2009 Counterchecking, editing – journalists sacrifice no more than one hour per day for these tasks. Weischenberg et al. 2006: 80;267 Of 130 news stories in which the news sources […] informed the newspapers of factual inaccuracy, complaints yielded only four published corrections. Maier 2009
  4. 4. 4 Things are getting worse online … constant need to update stories, permanent time pressure. Eberwein 2010 … no time for fact-checking: newsrooms are always in competiton for a good rank (e.g. Google News) … factual errors are being twittered, facebooked, shared – and thus are massively spread. The dangerous reality is that today‘s journalists are required to do more with less. Jeff Jarvis (2007)

Readers should be given new tools to help them report and track corrections and errors. Craig Silverman (2007)
  12. 12. 12 It‘s possible because it‘s online Newspapers and magazines must wait for their next issue to cor- rect their errors – on the internet you can do that immediately. A letter to the editors used to take days to be delivered – using corrigo you can adress them within seconds. Every reader beco- mes a potential fact-checker. We do journalism differently, because we can. Jeff Jarvis (2009)
  13. 13. 13 media accountability on a new layer corrigo helps you flag and correct factual errors, missing links and typos in online news sources. It comes as a browser add-on based on web annotation technology. This makes you see errors and corrections right in context.
  14. 14. 14 press councils the public online media watchblogs As factual errors corrigo lets the and opinion are public see and signal seperated, editors are errors in online media enabled to react and cor- on a public and inde- rect quicker - and in a pendent basis. more transparent way.
  15. 15. 15 Alliance of the Open-Minded corrigo is meant to work with journalists, not against them. Although corrigo is technically capable to work independently from the media‘s servers, it counts on the collaboration with edi- tors and reporters. Because the more professionals join and keep open for criticism, the better the whole media landscape gets. We all make mistakes. That‘s not the question. The question is what we do next. Jeff Jarvis (2007)

  30. 30. 30 corrigo visions Browser Add-On, error categories, highlighting – for the moment, these features represent the basic configuration to make corrigo function without overstraining the users right from the beginning. Nonetheless, corrigo has the potential to scale in functionality and use once it is established and “understood“ by a wider range of people. An open source structure is taken for granted. Here are some of our visions.
  31. 31. 31 corrigo visions fighting haste and paste: If you wonder whether parts of an article are basically copy-pasted from a press release, you should check that right away. So why not plug in the great service of Churnal- ism.com? sample photos: If an article is illustrated by a sample photo but does not disclose it in the caption, an image-check could be one click away with the cooperation of reverse image search engines like TinEye.com
  32. 32. 32 corrigo visions press council: Depending on the national media landscape, press councils can be the right institution to deal with moral issues (which corrigo does not). Filing complaints could be possible from the corrigo interface. response rate: How long does it take the editors to respond to an error claim – and how accurate are their corrections? A constant ranking could reinforce the media‘s brands and help people choosing their news sources.
  33. 33. 33 corrigo visions process journalism: Journalists could use corrigo for their research. Statements from interviewees that the journalist cannot verify will be published and highlighted – so that corrigo users are invited to collaborate. aggregated corrections columns: Everytime an errors gets correc- ted it adds automatically to the news site‘s corrections column. CMS plugin: corrigo wants to make editors’ lifes easier. A plugin could connect corrigo with the newsrooms’ content management systems. That way, editors could correct minor errors without even quitting their working environment.
  34. 34. 34 corrigo has the potential… … to uncover and correct factual errors in their very context … to keep records of corrections and evaluate them … to counter the massive circulation of wrong (news wire) articles … seperate opinion from facts … connect existing instruments of media accountability … to turn sober fact-checking into fun!
