Google Open Newsroom

The brainchild of Storyful, Google Open Newsroom serves as a collaborative platform for a community of journalists and newsmakers who gather to establish maximum clarity and context around big breaking stories. 

It is a new platform for debunking, fact-checking and clarifying, helping Storyful when its efforts may otherwise have hit a dead end due to problems verifying sources for their stories.

The site itself is aimed at news professionals and experts, including From My Point of Viewprotagonist Brown Moses. However while limitations are imposed on those members of the community that can contribute, the rest of the world who can watch what they get up to, including showcases of different verification techniques used.
