Event Title

Fake News

Session

Journalism, Media and Communication

Description

The phenomenon of fake news is present in the media even in Kosovo. This is a global and word phenomenon that is being discussed more and more, and measures and solutions are required, given the implications that such a phenomenon of false information reveals, which is different from propaganda and misinformation. We are often witnessing misinformation cases, false information, announcement of news in the context of any agenda or news created by any other center, or simply received information is not controlled and as such is advertised in the media. One of the possible measures would be to raise the level of media education to citizens. Serious journalism is the foundation for free and liberal democracy, whereas fake news are the opposite. Fake news has nothing in common with journalism and media freedom.
