People are circulating this & commenting on China’s lightning fast cover up (literally & figuratively) of the fire. But how do they know this isn’t just a pic taken before the fire? OSINT + sceptism + corroboration + caveats needed folks. Don’t blindly chase likes & retweets 1/x
it very well could be legit, but at least hedge your statements so people don’t take it as fact. Way too much uncorroberated OSINT stuff gets passed around as fact and blindly retweeted. Sets good accounts apart from bad. Everyone has a stinker here and there, trust me it happens
but some make a popular hobby out of doing this with no regard for public trust etc.
Also these types of photos can be easily doctored & are. Just last week a photo was spreading on here of the second Type 075 in the water next to the first. It was a fake. One photo alone is especially questionable. It doesn’t mean it isn’t legit, but let people know the caveats
Just the words “appears to be” can go a long way in letting people know it isn’t 100% yet. If you do this for a living or get daily feedback on your work, you know that you have to separate claims or a single bit of evidence with no chain of custody from outright fact
