When Peter Hafidke published "Gerechtigkeit fur Serbien" in 1996, criticizing mass media of having reported about the Jugoslavian war with an anti Serbian bias, his opinion was rejected by a great majority. The author resumes the main arguments, and concludes that most of the critics were wrong because of the facts, which show that the writer's opinion about Jugoslavia is more than comprehensible.
