The rise of fake news, often from politicians and source generators, is a common problem in journalism. It affects not only mainstream media but also draws into question the trustworthiness of much information seen online. To improve the accuracy and impartiality of journalism we introduce Deb8, a collaborative tool for fact checking in videos which can enhance the transparency of news production while engaging the public in constructive social discourse around topics under active debate.
