Željko Peratović started working as a journalist in 1991 in Croatian daily newspaper Vijesnik. At that time the war began, war propaganda strengthened, as well
„For me as a journalist, as a citizen and as a patriot, it was horrible. It was at the very beginning of my career in and war was all around. Back than, I had no choice to go to another newspaper. I worked only for a few months and I had to swallow the bitterness, but it is troubling you all the time“, said Peratovic.
