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.
Including media from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia and Serbia, this documentary features conversations with journalists and media professionals about the ways they can empower themselves and the public to identify fake news.
This documentary was produced by Mediacentar Sarajevo in cooperation with the South East European Network for Professionalization of Media (SEENPM).
