AFP FACT CHECK
Fighting disinformation in Asia
@AFPFactCheck
AFP Fact Check
● AFP Fact Check launched in early 2018
● Now 20+ countries globally. In Asia:
Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia,
Malaysia, Philippines, Pakistan,
Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand
● Eight languages including French,
Arabic, Indonesian
● Fake news global -- see same content
multiple languages eg HK facial
recognition. This video was circulated
in English and Polish.
AFP + Facebook
● Facebook Third Party Fact
Checker
● Facebook provide AFP Fact
check with feeds of
potentially misleading
content
● AFP fact checks on merit
● Once fact check is written,
add back to FB ecosystem
● Facebook take steps to
stop fake news spreading
Hong Kong protests
Man mauled by bear?
After our fact check report
was published...
Tackling misinformation
First Draft is an
excellent
organisation
dedicated to
researching and
tackling
misinformation
Why is online fact-checking becoming more important?
● Increasing amounts of unverified
content online globally
● Media job cuts can lead to decline in
standards
● Pressure to be first can result in
mistakes
● Increasing scrutiny on media
accuracy/scepticism about
mainstream media
Fact checks on our wire
● Asia fact check
reporters add value to
AFP’s regional
coverage -- writing
sidebars, focus pieces,
contributing key info to
breaking news wraps
● Eg -- Indian elections
Christchurch shooter
video verification; Hong
Kong disinformation
analysis
Verifying UGC in the newsroom: Christchurch mosque shooting
Christchurch mosque shooting: geolocation
● The footage shows the
gunman drove less than
2 kilometres in the
video
Key tools for fact checking: Reverse image search
● Upload the image to Google
Image Search, Yandex or try
the RevEye extension
● Google will provide you with a
list of search results which
you can analyse to try to
establish where and when the
image first appeared online
● Example: Hong Kong protest
pictures?
STEP 1: Choose your image to
investigate, save it on your desktop
STEP 2: Run it through an image
search on Google
STEP 3: Check the results, look
for examples of the image being
used in the correct context
STEP 4: If the
image is credited
to AFP, check our
archive to
confirm!
Verifying after reverse image search
● Check date news report was published;
does it make sense in the context of the
image? Try this handy tool if you can’t
find the web page date.
● Check the web page source; is it reliable?
● Does the image appear on other pages
which will help you verify it?
● Can you geo-locate the image?
Geo-location of UGC
Key clues to look for:
● Shop signs
● Landmarks
● Style of buildings
● Logos
● Street signs
● Ethnicity of the people featured
● Clothing/props
● Languages spoken
● Background music
● Terrain/style of cityscape
We can geolocate the
image to here on Google
Street View, on Rue Arsène
Houssaye.
● For videos, eg this misleading tweet,
use InVid -- breaks down videos into
keyframes then runs a reverse
image search
You will often locate news
reports about the video, or at
least clues about where and
when it was filmed and what it
features.
Video verification: InVID/WeVerify
STEP 1: Download the InVID/WeVerify Google
Chrome extension
STEP 2: Open the video you want
to verify in Google Chrome. Click
the InVID extension (top right)
and select ‘Open in InVID’.
STEP 3: Select ‘Keyframes’.
Input the video URL and
click ‘Submit’.
STEP 4: InVID will give
you a selection of
keyframes. Click on a
keyframe to reverse
image search it on Google
STEP 5: Analyse the results
as you would do for a
normal reverse image
search. If you get no results
for one keyframe, try
another
More video verification tips
● Is the video high quality footage? If not, it is less
likely to be an original source
● On YouTube/ Facebook, you can toggle on the video
settings to check if the video is available in high
definition
● Is the purported video taker based in the country
where the video was filmed? If not, is there a
reasonable explanation for why they would have
been there? Can they send you the original file to
check the metadata?
● Does the clip play a continuous scene or has it been
edited? Is the audio consistent with what you can
see on the clip?
Establishing when photos/videos were uploaded
● YouTube data viewer:
provides specific time video
was uploaded to YouTube
● Instagram posts: choose
public image/video, select
‘embed’ and find the time it
was uploaded at the very end
of the code
● Twitter/Facebook: expand
post and hover over date to
see the upload time.
Remember it will normally be
set to your timezone.
Establishing when photos/videos were captured
● Can you find corroborating
sources/witnesses to pin down when the
photo/video was taken?
● Can you find local media reports from the
time the photo/video was taken?
● Have you found the original photo/video
source? If so, can they send you the original
file to check the metadata?
● Is the photo/video consistent with other
photos/videos of the same incident shared
on social media?
What if I still can’t verify the image/video?
● Sometimes social media footage is
scraped (copied and re-shared) so
many times, that you will struggle to
find who filmed it through reverse
image search alone
● This clip went viral in Indonesia
shortly after the Lion Air flight 610
crash in October 2018 near Jakarta
● Google Image search for this video
screengrab only suggested this was a
Boeing 747 plane, but gave no detail
about the location
● Conducting a quick
search for Boeing 747
crashes suggests there
have been many over
the years
● But how many have
been filmed crashing into
the sea? Perhaps worth
conducting a search for
‘plane crashes into sea’
on YouTube?
● News reports and other
archive footage tally with
this news footage from
the event
Other handy online fact-checking tools
● Checkusernames.com; gives an assessment of which platforms a particular username is used on
● The WayBack Machine: online archive, useful for finding web pages which have been removed
● Trendsmap.com or Google Trends show you to what extent certain keywords are trending worldwide
● Carbon Dating the Web: free tool which gives you an estimated date that a web page was published
● Get-Metadata.com: check the metadata of a video or photo to see if it is an original file

Rachel BLUNDY - Overview of AFP Fact Check

  • 1. AFP FACT CHECK Fighting disinformation in Asia @AFPFactCheck
  • 2.
  • 3.
  • 4. AFP Fact Check ● AFP Fact Check launched in early 2018 ● Now 20+ countries globally. In Asia: Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Pakistan, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand ● Eight languages including French, Arabic, Indonesian ● Fake news global -- see same content multiple languages eg HK facial recognition. This video was circulated in English and Polish.
  • 5. AFP + Facebook ● Facebook Third Party Fact Checker ● Facebook provide AFP Fact check with feeds of potentially misleading content ● AFP fact checks on merit ● Once fact check is written, add back to FB ecosystem ● Facebook take steps to stop fake news spreading

  • 11. Tackling misinformation First Draft is an excellent organisation dedicated to researching and tackling misinformation
  • 12. Why is online fact-checking becoming more important? ● Increasing amounts of unverified content online globally ● Media job cuts can lead to decline in standards ● Pressure to be first can result in mistakes ● Increasing scrutiny on media accuracy/scepticism about mainstream media
  • 13. Fact checks on our wire ● Asia fact check reporters add value to AFP’s regional coverage -- writing sidebars, focus pieces, contributing key info to breaking news wraps ● Eg -- Indian elections Christchurch shooter video verification; Hong Kong disinformation analysis
  • 14. Verifying UGC in the newsroom: Christchurch mosque shooting
  • 15. Christchurch mosque shooting: geolocation ● The footage shows the gunman drove less than 2 kilometres in the video
  • 16. Key tools for fact checking: Reverse image search ● Upload the image to Google Image Search, Yandex or try the RevEye extension ● Google will provide you with a list of search results which you can analyse to try to establish where and when the image first appeared online ● Example: Hong Kong protest pictures?
  • 17. STEP 1: Choose your image to investigate, save it on your desktop STEP 2: Run it through an image search on Google
  • 18. STEP 3: Check the results, look for examples of the image being used in the correct context STEP 4: If the image is credited to AFP, check our archive to confirm!
  • 19. Verifying after reverse image search ● Check date news report was published; does it make sense in the context of the image? Try this handy tool if you can’t find the web page date. ● Check the web page source; is it reliable? ● Does the image appear on other pages which will help you verify it? ● Can you geo-locate the image?
  • 20. Geo-location of UGC Key clues to look for: ● Shop signs ● Landmarks ● Style of buildings ● Logos ● Street signs ● Ethnicity of the people featured ● Clothing/props ● Languages spoken ● Background music ● Terrain/style of cityscape
  • 21. We can geolocate the image to here on Google Street View, on Rue Arsène Houssaye.
  • 22. ● For videos, eg this misleading tweet, use InVid -- breaks down videos into keyframes then runs a reverse image search You will often locate news reports about the video, or at least clues about where and when it was filmed and what it features. Video verification: InVID/WeVerify
  • 23. STEP 1: Download the InVID/WeVerify Google Chrome extension STEP 2: Open the video you want to verify in Google Chrome. Click the InVID extension (top right) and select ‘Open in InVID’. STEP 3: Select ‘Keyframes’. Input the video URL and click ‘Submit’.
  • 24. STEP 4: InVID will give you a selection of keyframes. Click on a keyframe to reverse image search it on Google STEP 5: Analyse the results as you would do for a normal reverse image search. If you get no results for one keyframe, try another
  • 25. More video verification tips ● Is the video high quality footage? If not, it is less likely to be an original source ● On YouTube/ Facebook, you can toggle on the video settings to check if the video is available in high definition ● Is the purported video taker based in the country where the video was filmed? If not, is there a reasonable explanation for why they would have been there? Can they send you the original file to check the metadata? ● Does the clip play a continuous scene or has it been edited? Is the audio consistent with what you can see on the clip?
  • 26. Establishing when photos/videos were uploaded ● YouTube data viewer: provides specific time video was uploaded to YouTube ● Instagram posts: choose public image/video, select ‘embed’ and find the time it was uploaded at the very end of the code ● Twitter/Facebook: expand post and hover over date to see the upload time. Remember it will normally be set to your timezone.
  • 27. Establishing when photos/videos were captured ● Can you find corroborating sources/witnesses to pin down when the photo/video was taken? ● Can you find local media reports from the time the photo/video was taken? ● Have you found the original photo/video source? If so, can they send you the original file to check the metadata? ● Is the photo/video consistent with other photos/videos of the same incident shared on social media?
  • 28. What if I still can’t verify the image/video? ● Sometimes social media footage is scraped (copied and re-shared) so many times, that you will struggle to find who filmed it through reverse image search alone ● This clip went viral in Indonesia shortly after the Lion Air flight 610 crash in October 2018 near Jakarta ● Google Image search for this video screengrab only suggested this was a Boeing 747 plane, but gave no detail about the location
  • 29. ● Conducting a quick search for Boeing 747 crashes suggests there have been many over the years ● But how many have been filmed crashing into the sea? Perhaps worth conducting a search for ‘plane crashes into sea’ on YouTube? ● News reports and other archive footage tally with this news footage from the event
  • 30. Other handy online fact-checking tools ● Checkusernames.com; gives an assessment of which platforms a particular username is used on ● The WayBack Machine: online archive, useful for finding web pages which have been removed ● Trendsmap.com or Google Trends show you to what extent certain keywords are trending worldwide ● Carbon Dating the Web: free tool which gives you an estimated date that a web page was published ● Get-Metadata.com: check the metadata of a video or photo to see if it is an original file
