Who can we still believe? When even governments spread fake news to create confusion and uncertainty, it is increasingly difficult to spot the truth among the lies. BELLINGCAT follows an international team of citizen investigative journalists, who use audio analysis, cutting­edge digital techniques and their knowledge of social media to conduct in­depth research putting every major news publisher to the test. Can a bunch of self­funded “armchair researchers” hold powerful world leaders accountable for their crimes? And what does their success have to say of this century’s changes?
