Discovery and verification

The media landscape has changed dramatically over the last decade and SWNS has been at the forefront of new content-gathering techniques.

Social media has revolutionised the way people share their stories and experiences; and we as a news organisation had to change to reflect that.

The result is our Discovery team – a dedicated group of journalists who discover and verify the incredible stories and media assets that surface online.

We use modern digital tools alongside our network of owned and operated digital brands to generate hundreds of story leads every day.

And everything we distribute is verified and licensed, giving publishers the peace of mind that everything is fact checked, legally sound safe to publish.
