Languages of publication
This paper attempts to answer a pressing question of whether or not the media affects the recipients and – if so – to what an extent and under what circumstances. The author of this publication, basing on scientific theories and media influence models divided into concepts of the omnipotence of the media and its indirect influence, touches upon chosen elements of election campaign preceding 2018 parliamentary election in Hungary. The predominant goal of this dissertation is to check whether or not the media manipulate us.
