Bharat Nayak, as a founding editor, oversaw the rise of The Logical Indian, a digital media platform, from 20k followers to six million people. He has headed a newsroom for five years, strategized and oversaw the execution of content, and worked towards laying down the editorial policy at The Logical Indian. In addition, he has conceptualized & designed campaign strategies and headed collaborations for https://thelogicalindian.com
He heads the fact-check division and a verification trainer of the Google News Initiative Trainer Network in India, a program to help fellow/journalism students fight the tide of online misinformation.
He will talk to us about the emergence of ‘Fact Checkers’ – the new snappy vocation that comes with loads of responsibilities and physical threats. We will get to know the ABCs of Fact Checking and get a sneak peek into the murky world of propaganda artists.
The passion to engage in rational conversation about the pertinent social issues surrounding us drives him to what he does. He believes that through the use of social media, stories that focus on bringing social issues, provoke ones to think, and bring behavioral change should travel far.
