UGA Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication Hackathon: Verification + Fact-checking App (TORCH)
Created the prototype Torch, an online and app-based verified video movement targeted at college newspapers. Torch is designed to provide information in concise, digestible bites to reshape the news agenda to fit millennials and what they care about. Torch pairs grassroots video from college campuses with explanatory videos that help explain common misconceptions and misinformation. Torch offers college newspapers a verified toolkit on issues to help them further investigate, illuminate and ignite participation locally.
