Slovenia European Behavioral Studies Institute (E.B.S.I.)

MediaScanner (Round 3)

The project will attempt to evaluate and scrutinize the credibility of statements asserted by opinion makers, who get the spotlight on the Slovenian prime-time news program Odmevi, which is presented as a reliable source of factual information. Our goal is to determine whether their guests, Slovenian public figures, uphold a standard of trustworthiness in their interviews. This will be achieved by applying a method of analysis (SCAN), which recognizes linguistic inconsistencies and thereby determines probable deception in statements. Combined with open-source software, we will offer journalists and the public a tool to go behind the scenes of public discourse.
