In today’s episode of PINcast, we discuss what happens when a person answers a newsroom’s questions with false information.
Linda Lockhart, from the St. Louis Beacon, tells us about a near miss with a source who was pretending to be a local journalist – he even went as far as submitting false photos of himself.
Then Joellen Easton, from our own PIN team, tells us how PIN tools can help prevent and reveal liars — and just how often this type of thing happens.
