Session

Journalism, Media and Communication

Description

The occupation perjury, apartheid and, genocide on Albanians were the main goals of the propaganda that the Serbian government along with medias who were serving the 1990s government were trying to achieve. The methodology used in this “war” represents the extreme propaganda model which was used for politics while depicting the limits of the impossible using fictional happenings. These types of news used to make a great impact on the Serbian mobilization against Albanians, however they were not affected. Even though the medias in Albanian were few in numbers, starting from Kosova Information Center (KIC), and newspapers “Bujku”, “Koha ditore”, “Kosova sot”, still managed to fight this propaganda by providing facts to the citizens. There is one important fact which makes the difference between today’s and 1990s fake news, while the main goal is to damage the Kosovo’s image. Media’s in Albanian, with relatively small exceptions, on purpose or not, from time to time are becoming part of this propaganda.
