Deconstructive Journalism: Disciplinary Power Affecting Journalists in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Journalists’ safety is decreasing world-wide (RSF, 2022). The components of polarization and global crises over the last years, fueled by the opportunities the internet provides has made the work of journalists more challenging. The country of Bosnia and Herzegovina is no exception. However, the working conditions of Bosnian journalists might be even more difficult, adding to the domestic political polarized situation, complicating their duty to serve the public interest (KAS, 2021). It is within the core of the profession to have no other interests than those of one’s public. Despite all good intentions and the key element journalism is within a healthy democracy, journalists are targeted by smear campaigns, threats, strategic lawsuits and socio-economic challenges. With a load of perseverance active journalists hold on to their duty, albeit the consequences it brings along.
