Description

You may not have heard of Bellingcat, and at first glance, it may seem like some sort of mysterious cyber creation. But from its humble beginnings as just another internet blog, Bellingcat has grown into a revolutionary collective of "citizen investigative journalists" from around the world who are dedicated to transforming the world of reporting in this era of "fake news." Using advanced digital research techniques, these talented and devoted truth-seekers are exposing seemingly impenetrable news stories such as the MH1 airline disaster, the poisoning of a Russian spy in the UK, and hidden crimes of the Syrian regime. This fascinating and exciting documentary will give you insight and hope for the world of journalism, which is being challenged every day.
