#CIJSummer Investigative Journalism Conference 2017
How to Fact-check 'Alternative Facts'
The CIJ Summer Conference is UK’s only investigative journalism training event with an emphasis on teaching investigative skills. This year we will focus on the skills needed to counteract the world of 'alternative facts' and plain lies: from fBeastact checking, holding the strong and powerful to account to grassroots journalism projects with hands-on classes, case studies and talks.
