I'd like to learn how to become an expert debunker. Will you teach me how to:
A. Debunk photographs/videos.
What image-manipulation techniques do you use? What things do you look for? Are there tell-tale signs that immediately tip you off?
B. Debunking testimonies/stories/accounts
What are some ways to tell if someone is spinning a yarn? Are there narrative patterns you look for? What questions can you ask to trip them up and force them to backpeddle etc?
C. Debunking groups/cults
How can you tell when a group of people is starting to believe their own rubbish to the point that you can't tell if they're lying?
