Sama doma: case study with emphasis on gender stereotypes
Halamásek, Šimon ; Vochocová, Lenka (advisor) ; Miessler, Jan (referee)
This master thesis titled "Sama doma: a case study with emphasis on gender stereotypes" focuses on the way gender stereotypes are manifested in the live publicistic talk show Sama doma. Based on the analysis of selected episodes, a conducted interview with the show's head editor and with the support of literature, this thesis shows, that gender stereotypes are indeed a part of the content. The presence of these stereotypes is noted among the topics chosen, guests invited, in the absence of a male and also in the speech of moderators. The speech is highlighted as the main source of gender stereotypes in this show and is linked to internalised sexism. Its specific manifestations are thematically categorised into several subchapters. The show has been criticised in the past for stereotypical depictions of women and the research findings of this thesis are therefore compared to the criticism as well. The thesis concludes that even though this show broadcasted on Czech Television has succeeded in shifting the way it deals with gender roles to a less stereotypical one, we can still find manifestations that support the rigid nature of these structures.

Media organization analysis - Seznam Zprávy
Hodboď, Vojtěch ; Reifová, Irena (advisor) ; Miessler, Jan (referee)
In the thesis I deal with the transformation of the media environment in the postmodern (fluid) period and the influence of these changes on the identity of the journalists. I look at the transformation of the media landscape from a variety of perspectives - for example from a convergence point of view, which I describe not only as a technological process, but above all as a cultural change that created fluid boundaries between various channels and formats, between production and consumption, organizations or the extent of the user's involvement in media communication. This has put media professionals into a situation they have to deal with. After organizing the theoretical backgrounds, I can, in the practical part, focus on how the media landscape is perceived by the journalists themselves and how it affects them. Based on in-depth interviews with journalists from the Seznam Zprávy, I first show the changes that journalists consider important, and then describe how these changes have been adapted over time. In the next part of the research I follow their current perception of the profession - especially how they perceive the decline in prestige and credibility of the profession, or how they think about the future of the profession. Finally, in the last part I deal with traditional and...

The research emphasizes on loyalty of the fans towards their favourite franchises and whether their taste is being steady or if it possibly varies over time. The goal is to examine if these changes in the fans' taste have any impact on the fans future inside of their community. The respondents also described their approach to the technology and the development of the new media, and how this development impacts on their fandom in terms of an access to more texts, or how it can facilitate a mutual communication.

Investigative journalism carried out by non-profit media organizations
Indra, Jan ; Křeček, Jan (advisor) ; Miessler, Jan (referee)
This thesis focuses on the production of investigative reporting by nonprofit organisations. The phenomena of a partial shift of investigative media production into the nonprofit sector has rapidly gained traction in recent years. One of the reasons for this development has been the declining economic condition of the traditional types of media, resulting in newsrooms decreasing their staff as well as the overall dedication of resources to investigative journalism as an extremely expensive form of journalism. The other reason has been the transformation of the political and social spheres, which have an undeniable impact on whether independent investigative journalism is even possible. This paper then aspires to present a comprehensive view on this phenomena and whether it is sustainable. After defining the theoretical conditions for the existence of investigative journalism in the nonprofit sector, the paper identifies the main challenges that emerging nonprofit investigative organizations have to face, as it then also presents steps that these organisations can take in order to overcome these challenges. The final part of the thesis is dedicated to the five-year existence of the Czech Centre for Investigative Journalism, an investigative nonprofit. The author of this paper, who has also been a...
