In cooperation with regional network of fact checkers we wanted to identify and analyse general dis-, mis- and mal-information trends during Covid-19 pandemic in the region as the unprecedented global crisis we found ourselves in only exaggerated the extremely negative societal impact of these phenomena.
First part of this publication authored by Prof. Lejla Turčilo and Mladen Obrenović PhD is a theoretical introduction into these phenomena and the importance of quality information in times of crisis, and the role of fact-checking in educating and guiding the public.
Second part represents the analysis proper edited by Tijana Cvjetićanin. Authors of analysis are Rašid Krupalija, Emir Zulejhić, Darko Brkan, Ajla Škrbić for Raskrinkavanje, Tin Puljić for Faktograf, Stefan Janjić for FakeNews Tragač, Vesna Radojević for Raskrikavanje, and Milan Jovanović.
