Since there's been a spike in online fake news, it is important for Pakistan Defence Forum to monitor the authenticity of the root sources used as OPs for initiating debate threads. Here are some things to keep in mind.

  • Tweets as root sources are only acceptable if the info given in the tweet can be easily cross verified. This would help us maintain the integrity of the debate.

  • Threads started based on user opinion are not to be taken as forum policy.

  • URLs used as root sources for threads must be linked from reputed sources.

  • Untrustworthy sources as determined by the Red Team can be flagged as unreliable or completely removed.

  • Sources determined to be used as an instrument of propaganda can also be moderated or removed.

  • Compliance is mandatory.
Pakistan Defence is committed to authentic debating experience and your resolute cooperation in making this happen is absolutely critical. If you have any issues to discuss, please approach the staff.

Thank You.
Can you ask people to please cooperate and point out [with proof] ANY thread that is based on "fake news"so that the Moderators can close it immediately? @WebMaster can we have a button like report one for this?

@Slav Defence @Oscar @The Eagle and any other mods?

1)All recognized and well reputed news agencies such as DAWN, Jung, CNN, BBC etc.
2)Journals with high impact factors such as nature, Springer etc
3)Sources such as National geography etc
4)References from books and articles written by neutral authors.
5)If discussing policy of any country then sources should be provided from their very own official agencies.
6) News release by government agencies such as ministries or army cell.

This is common trend.The simplest way is to watch "news analysis".If it pro govt, swtich it; it it turns out to be against govt, switch it.However, if the analysis turns out to be neutral and he host of the show has invited members of both mindsets then you can allow yourself to follow what news they are showing.
