Chuck Peters on API

Chuck Peters, chief executive of The Gazette Company in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, left an important comment on my post about the American Press Institute’s summit, which he attended and liveblogged:

Is this video “missing context,” “transformed,” or “edited”? This effort wants to standardize how we categorize visual misinformation
MediaReview wants to turn the mishmash vocabulary around manipulated photos and video into something structured.
