Footage Vs. Footage
Footage vs. Footage, hosted by Russian journalist Andrey Cherkasov, is a show about the news and the people who make it. This media-literacy program mines the week’s top international stories, dissecting fake news and sensationalized stories, and helping the viewer learn the difference between unintentional mistakes and conscious manipulation. Footage vs. Footage examines stories from all possible angles and sources – and lets you be the judge.
