Reporeted.ly is a new type of newsroom where journalists, based all over the world, report, verify and investigate international stories emerging on social media and the open web. By using satellite images, tracking flights and maritime routes and crowdsourced citizen videos they were able to follow arms trade between Italy and Saudi Arabia and the use of arms against civilians in Yemen. “This is becoming traditional reporting,” says Malachy Browne, managing editor at Reported.ly. “By applying these methods and tools, we are able to cover a disproportioned amount of stories on what’s happening around the world,” he adds.
