Kali Tribune's Department of History and Delusion Drainage proudly presents the first episode in the series of enclosures on twofold subject: history of the war in the aftermath of dissolution of Yugoslavia and already noted phenomena of prevalent urge to dissolve the reality of the past, present among the alarming number of so called "alternative media" outlets.

However, as we shall see, under the hood the dividing line between alternative and mainstream fades to nothing. Could it be that the bulk of alt media is just one step further into oblivion?
