Youtube creates a coalition of social media journalism experts to design educational resources aimed at learning how to verify eyewitness news reports. First Draft Coalition will also examine the ethics of using eyewitness reports in journalism media. Experts will be recruited from Eyewitness Media Hub, Storyful, Bellingcat, First Look Media’s Reported ly, Meedan, Emergent, SAM Desk and Verification Junkie.

The Coalition will develop and program a new site for verification and ethics training, tools, research, and, most importantly, case studies around the biggest news stories of the moment. The site will launch this fall.
