Only good journalism can solve the problem of information warfare. United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications Alison Smale said this in an interview with the Editor-in-Chief of the International Affairs Journal Armen Oganesyan. She believes that good journalism, first of all, is objectivity. Moreover, in her opinion, much depends on the chosen tone. It is possible to start a dispute or a reasoned discussion, and the result will be different. She believes that “fake news” make relevant the question of what kind of control over the media should be carried out.
