The image of U.S. in Rudé právo during the Vietnam War
Mikeš, Marek ; Bednařík, Petr (advisor) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
In my thesis I analyse how the United States was depicted in Rudé právo during selected stretches of the Vietnam War. I focus on 1966 (the US already at war), 1968 (the Tet offensive) and 1969 (Nixon as president, the death of Ho Chi Minh) and I explore what image a Czechoslovak reader might have made of the US based on those periods. Next, I observe the differences between the objective portrayal of these historical events and their media coverage in Rudé právo. In my work I assume that Rudé právo did not inform about the Vietnam War objectively, but was instead subject to Communist propaganda. At the same time, I am also interested in the means by which Rudé právo obtained a subjective description of these events.
"We Will Not Let Our Republic Be Disrupted!" - Third Resistance in The Czechoslovak Media
Dordová, Alžběta ; Groman, Martin (advisor) ; Knapík, Jiří (referee)
This thesis is focused on the topic of media use in a system of a communist totality. It provides an analysis of presentation of selected characters directly or indirectly involved in activities of the anti-communist, so called third resistance, in the Czechoslovak press media of that era. By using the interpretation of results of semiotic analysis of selected news and publicistic articles the author of the thesis attempts to answer the research questions and confirm or disconfirm the hypothesis that communist press media used the above mentioned cases particularly for the promotion of the official ideology. Political and medial contexts as well as brief life-stories of the chosen third resistance representatives are outlined in the theoretical part of the thesis, while the analysis with the interpretation of its results are discussed in the practical part. The conclusion of the analysis confirms that the communist press media associated those representatives with predominantly negative connotations and that the meanings of all the selected articles were strongly affected by propagandistic elements.
Fenomen deepfakes as a threat for journalism
Mudrová, Nikol ; Láb, Filip (advisor) ; Moravec, Václav (referee)
This Bachelor's thesis tackles the newly occurring type of fake news - deepfake videos. Considering they are quite new and not profusely misused to spread disinformation yet, the thesis embraces this phenomenon right from its roots. In the first section, it defines, what disinformation is, what did it emerge from, how did it look like in the past and how does it look like now. Obviously, to the topic also applies its psychological perspective - in this case, why people's brain does not identify fake news and which short-cuts in processing information take disinformators an advantage from. After such an introduction to the problematics follows a part, which explains the technology behind producing deepfake videos. In a practical part of the thesis concrete deepfake examples are analyzed. Based on this analysis and an interview with Jakub Zelenka, a journalist focusing on fake news, the thesis answers a question of whether and how deepfake videos influence journalism.
Cyberpropaganda and its Communication Models
Gladiš, Michal ; Marcelli, Miroslav (advisor) ; Mucha, Ivan (referee)
Cyberpropaganda and its Communication Models In this thesis, communication models representing the functioning of communication in a network of social interactions are analyzed. Understanding the communication of new media can contribute to understanding the processes that take place in cyberspace. The aim of this thesis is to decipher the forms of propaganda that operate in it. This work can contribute to the understanding of several forms of current social events, such as public relations, influencing public opinion or political struggle, which have significantly moved into cyberspace. The presentation of cyberspace and new media from several perspectives, together with the complex characterization of the communication that takes place in them, creates its overall image, in which the thesis reveals possible penetrations of propaganda tendencies of targeted manipulation with its members. In this thesis, cyberpropaganda is approached from several points of view. It is about updating propaganda models from the mass media to the emergence of new forms, techniques and tools that have enabled the new media. The starting point of this research is to clarify the complexity of communication, which is not shaped exclusively by its new technical aspects, but is to some extent a continuation of its previous...
The Influence of Nazi propagandy on Olympic Games in 1936
Peroutková, Anna-Marie ; Kyncl, Vojtěch (advisor) ; Smetana, Vít (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the influence of Nazi propaganda on the Olympic Games in 1936. It describes the preparation and organization of the Winter Olympic Games in Garmisch- Partenkirchen and the Summer Olympic Games in Berlin. The main goal of the thesis is to find out whether the regime of the organizing country influenced the course of such an important sporting event and possibly to what extent. The Nazis were originally opposed to the idea of hosting the Olympic Games, but eventually came to the conclusion that this was a unique opportunity to present the Third Reich in the best light and gain the favour of world opinion and depict a positive image of Germany. After Adolf Hitler came to power, over time, sport was identified as one of the priorities of Nazi education, which was to strengthen and prepare the German youth for the future war. During this time, Jews were increasingly expelled from society and became second-class. Their fate in Germany provoked a wave of resentment abroad. Despite numerous boycotts of the Olympic Games, however, a record number of states and athletes took part in the Olympics in Germany. The representatives of the participating States were reassured by the promise of equal conditions for all participants in the Games. This pushed the Jewish question into...
Communist propaganda in the Vlasta magazine 1948 - 1956
Helikarová, Petra ; Suk, Pavel (advisor) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
This thesis deals with the manifestations of the Communist propaganda in the period 1948- 1956 in the Czechoslovakian women's press, represented here by the Vlasta weekly magazine. It summarily presents the political and media situation in Czechoslovakia after World War Two and describes the two most significant organisations of the Czechoslovak women's movement at the time, together with their magazines, Československá žena and Rada žen, which preceded Vlasta. It presents the establishment of the Vlasta weekly magazine and introduces the two editors in chief, who managed the magazine in the period in question. Due to its extraordinary importance, it devotes a separate chapter to the most significant figure of the then Czechoslovak women's movement and in many aspects an exceptional personality Dr. Milada Horáková who initiated the establishment of Vlasta and published her own works in the magazine up to February 1948. After a theoretical introduction of Communist propaganda, the thesis presents its manifestations through specific examples from the content of Vlasta. The period in question is divided into three periods, the landmark year of 1948, when following the relatively independent beginning of Communist propaganda after the February Coup, this doctrine took complete control of the initially...
Strangers in a Strange Land: American Lives under the Soviet Gaze
Perry, David ; Brisku, Adrian (advisor) ; Vykoukal, Jiří (referee) ; Kolenovská, Daniela (referee)
Strangers in a Strange Land: American Lives Under the Soviet Gaze By David Perry This paper aims to shed light on the lives of American immigrants living in the Soviet Union during the 1930s, while also discussing the role that state propaganda, presented through English-language periodicals such as Moscow News, played within the immigrant community. This paper provides needed analysis of an under-researched population in the study of immigration in the modern era. By focusing on primary sources produced for the consumption of the community as a whole, as opposed to individual experiences found in memoirs or letters, this paper attempts to create generalizable information regarding the social and political pressures facing the Soviet-American immigrant community of the 1930s. In the second chapter of this paper, I construct a profile of the immigrant community and trace the historical development of the community, from the United States in the early years of the Great Depression to their emigration to the Soviet Union. I also work to describe the ways that factors such as race, gender, and class affected the experiences of the immigrant community. This paper utilizes a conceptual historical approach, particularly in its third chapter, to develop an understanding of the way that concepts important...
Fake news genres
Prokypčák, Matej ; Řehořová, Irena (advisor) ; Švantner, Martin (referee)
The diploma thesis consists of two main parts. In the theoretical part, we deal with the basic terminological framework of fake news, the development of misinformation, fake news, hoaxes, propaganda and their form and the form they acquired. We will also look at misinformation, hoax and propaganda as a specific genre of false news. Furthermore, we analyze the spread of hoaxes and disinformation and the criteria by which hoaxes are recognized and labeled. An important part of the theoretical part of the thesis is also the manipulation with the content and the determination of the criteria on the basis of which false information can be recognized. We will focus primarily on the electronic and new media domains, which are mainly represented by social networks. In the research and analytical part of the thesis we look at the ways in which different sites classify misinformation and hoaxes, by what criteria they approach their classification, and whether these methods are unambiguous and consistent. The second important part of the research will analyze the attitudes of traditional and alternative media to work with false news and hoaxes. We will try to bring a glimpse of both stakeholders, that is to say, representatives of traditional media and alternative media.
