Meet Bellingcat & Eliot Higgins

Eliot Higgins is the founder of Bellingcat and the Brown Moses Blog. Higgins developed the website called Bellingcat as a resource for Citizen Journalists to investigate current events using open source information such as videos, maps and pictures. In this video Eliot outlines the use of the Checkdesk platform as a fact-checking tool to investigate the story on the “Shooting down of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 on 17 July 2014.”
