Sunday, the 6th of November 2022, is Listeners' Day on Radio Romania International
Dear friends, Sunday, the 6th of November 2022, will be Listeners' Day on Radio Romania International, celebrated a week after the Romanian Radio Day marked on the 1st of November.
2022 will go down in history and, equally, in the collective memory, as a very special year, but not like the year when the whole world emerged out of the pandemic, as most of us would have expected.
On the morning of February 24, the old continent was shattered by an armed conflict, after almost 80 years of peace. Large-scale propaganda and disinformation campaigns, meant to create chaos and confusion, have also become part of the confrontation.
The information warfare is not a new kind of reality. However, its effects have become more visible than ever against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine, because the war has brought a real explosion of fake news and disinformation with it.
In this year's edition of Listeners' Day on RRI we ask you what sources of information about the war in Ukraine are the most reliable for you? How can you identify fake news from real news? How vulnerable you think you are to disinformation? Have you removed from your list the sources of information proven to be spreading fake news and disinform the public? Which is the role that public radio, and an international radio station in particular, plays in your life during this period of time?
We are looking forward to receiving your answers, which will be included in our show on the 6th of November! You can email them to us, at firstname.lastname@example.org, post them on Facebook or send them as a comment to this article on RRI's website at www.rri.ro. If you like, you can also send us pre-recorded answers via WhatsApp, at +40744312650, or you can send us your telephone number so we can call you from the studio and record your opinions. Thank you!
