A locally-focused system for surfacing misinformation.
This project is executed through a partnership among interdisciplinary academics and news organizations, including the local newsroom Detroit Free Press, Univision News, The Des Moines Register, and the University of Texas at Austin and University of Michigan. The goal of this project is to produce a tool, Local Misinformation Pipelines, that surfaces misinformation circulating in local communities.

I liked that global look of what's happening everywhere, but let me know specifically what's happening in my city. You know, we're not going to have the bandwidth to tackle things that are outside of Texas. - Local newsroom Team member
I want to see the trending topics, and I want to know what is going viral. Because I want to let our readers know what they should pay attention to. - Journalist
