New From the Washington Post: The Fact Checker’s Guide to Manipulated Video
The Internet is increasingly populated with false and misleading videos. These videos — spread by politicians, advocacy groups and everyday users — are viewed by millions. The Fact Checker set out to develop a universal language to label manipulated video and hold creators and sharers of this misinformation accountable.
We have found three main ways video is being altered: footage taken out of context, deceptively edited or deliberately altered. These categories are further broken down into subcategories, which are shown below.
This guide is intended to help all of us navigate this new information landscape and start a necessary conversation.
This page will update with new examples as they emerge.
