Documenting the war on disinformation.

The spread of disinformation has greatly challenged professional journalism in every country in the Balkans. However, some media outlets are seeking to challenge this phenomenon.

The mini-documentary “JUNK FOLDER” explores how disinformation damages professional journalism. It examines how journalists, researchers and professional fact-checkers are fighting disinformation and who is behind the fabricated news and what its intention is.
