Zpěváčková, Barbora ; Suk, Pavel (advisor) ; Cebe, Jan (referee)
From 1948 to 1989, the newspaper Rudé právo was the central press authority of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia. Its content that was presented to the public, was ideologically focused in accordance with the current propaganda line of the Communist Party. After the Velvet Revolution in 1989, the situation began to change and, above all, domestic political content began to go through considerable change. This thesis analyzes the domestic political articles that were published in the Rudé právo during 1989 - eleven months before the Velvet Revolution and the period after the Velvet Revolution until the end of 1989. This work captures what topics the texts dealt with, which topics were preferred and which were neglected. The thesis also captures and describes how and when exactly the content of the paper began to change, how the attitudes of editors and the tone of the texts has being changed, which new topics began to appear in the press and how the language and rhetoric of the newspaper have changed.

Břízová, Iva ; Jirák, Jan (advisor) ; Cebe, Jan (referee)
In her diploma thesis titled "Depiction of the figure of judge in selected Czech media", the author aims to analyse what levels of representation are used to depict the figure of a judge in selected Czech series. The selected five figures of judges are described on the basis of their physical description, roles in society, behaviour and relationships by which their character is co-created. The author focused mainly on stereotypes, which were used to depict the figures. Part of the analysis of the figures of judge is their classification into the category of heroes or villains according to the typology of figures by Brian McNair. Also utilized are the typology of figures by E.M. Forster and Seymour Chatman. The media's depiction of the judges in selected series is positive. At the level of representativeness, it influences the perception of the institution of courts, which are shaped by the depiction of the judicial profession. 1

The findings show both similarities but also differences between the two countries of interest. The findings can only be generalized to a certain extent as the research has its limitations.

Šauerová, Jana ; Cebe, Jan (advisor) ; Nečas, Vlastimil (referee)
Diploma thesis "Framing of sea arrivals of the migrants and refugees in the Italian press in 2011 and 2014" examines how Italian newspapers cover the topic of sea arrivals of migrants and refugees from North Africa during the Arab Spring and an exponential increase of arrivals in 2014, which heralded the migration crisis. At the first part of the thesis, theoretical concepts are summarized, including framing, securitization theory and moral panic, and researches of media representation and framing of the immigration. The theoretical section is followed by the contextual part. Within the analysis, the work is based on the concept of framing and therefore the primarily observed aspects are the emphasized or hidden aspects of the phenomenon. A combination of qualitative and quantitative analysis was chosen as the approach for describing the framing of the topic. The aim of the qualitative analysis is a deeper understanding of the analyzed material, generation of a set of specific frames, their detailed description and definition, and subsequent designation of hypotheses. The aim of the quantitative content analysis is to quantify the specified variables and, based on the outcomes, to compare both periods and journals and to confirm or disprove hypotheses. Research results suggest that despite...
The Munich agreement and its reflection in the press/ The reflection of the Munich agreement in the press
Legátová, Alžběta ; Končelík, Jakub (advisor) ; Cebe, Jan (referee)
The Munich agreement signed on the 29th of September 1938 has always been giving rise to strong emotions in Czech society. This event, frequently described as "about us, without us", is a synonym for humiliation, injustice and a symbol of betrayal for many. The historian Jan Tesař holds a non-traditional point of view on this matter. He opposes this established interpretation and sees it as a source of origin of the so-called Munich Complex. The proposed diploma thesis focuses on this phenomenon, which is examined in printed media. Firstly, it provides a brief historical context and introduces an overview of different interpretations of Munich events within Czech historiography as well as describes the arguments of Tesař himself. Furthermore, the Munich complex is conceptualized and the resulting concept includes variables necessary for the research part of the thesis. This section consists of qualitative and quantitative analysis of the content of selected representative media samples. Among examined aspects are arguments used in the press, patterns of interpretation and attributed meanings. The time scope for analysis ranges from 1948 to 2018. Finally, the examination of the presence of aforementioned elements in selected samples and evolution of media bias throughout the time provides knowledge...
