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.
Analysis of communication and argumentation of Andrej Babiš presented in TV programmes Otázky Václava Moravce (Question of Václav Moravec) and Iterview ČT24 in the years 2014-2017
Vitáčková, Eliška ; Jirák, Jan (advisor) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the verbal and nonverbal communication of the former Minister of Finance Andrej Babiš and especially examines his ability to argue. The thesis consists of two parts. The theoretical part explains the basic concepts - verbal communication, language means, nonverbal communication, argument and argumentation and pragmatic linguistics. The analytical part of the thesis is based on the principles of qualitative research. The programs of Czech Television - Questions of Václav Moravec and Interview ČT24 were selected for the analysis. The choice of these programs was mainly related to their nature. In the case of Interview ČT24, one moderator and one guest are present. In Questions of Václav Moravec, Andrej Babiš gets into a controversy not only with the moderator of the discussion, but also with other guests. For the analysis of the mentioned areas were selected parts of programs in 2014, when Babiš became Minister of Finance, and in 2017, in which he last acted as Minister of Finance. Between these years, episodes in 2015 and in 2016 were chosen, which made it possible to follow the development of Babiš's speech over the time. The final chapter then summarizes the main findings of the research. The result of this thesis is a characteristics of the speech and appearance of...
Euroscepticism in the Czech media
Znojemský, Vojtěch ; Pečenková, Markéta (advisor) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
The Czech Republic is often said to be a Eurosceptic country. These opinions mainly come from the results of public opinion polls, as, for example, the election results do not show higher success of Eurosceptic parties and, after all, the referendum on the Czech Republic's accession to the EU has a positive result. Skeptical opinions may rather show in a lack of interest in European issues, poor awareness, or low participation in the European elections, where the Czech Republic has had one of the lowest participations for a long time. It is the primary goal of this diploma thesis to find out what role the print media play in these moods and whether some of them may be labeled as Eurosceptic. Another goal is to verify the presented theory of Euroscepticism and the relevance of its defined actors, and also to find new, previously undefined Eurosceptics.
Instagram as a means of spreading trends in gastronomy with a focus
Škoda, Martin ; Zábrodská, Kristina (advisor) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
This diploma thesis discusses Instagram as a means for spreading trends in gastronomy with a focus on gastronomy and related trends in the field specifically from the Czech Republic. The author tries to map the influences that the online environment can have on their formation, especially the social network Instagram. After a thorough acquaintance with the environment of social networks, the social network Instagram, its influence on the spread of experiences, trends and the media environment in general, is described in more detail. The author seeks to clarify whether what is happening on this network can guide the direction of what is popular in the gastronomic environment, understand the role that well-watched creators from Instragram play in society and what it means for ordinary users to share food experiences. "Influential" users from the gastronomic sphere on Czech Instagram and their further connection with the media environment are presented. In the research, the author determines, via the form of a structured questionnaire (which was attended by 1143 respondents from the environment of social networks), what role Instragram plays in spreading gastronomic trends in the Czech Republic. The data obtained is supplemented with opinions based on interviews with representatives from the Czech...
The role of media in the diffusion of Japanese culture
Paták, David ; Soukup, Martin (advisor) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
The focus of this master's thesis is on the role of specific media in the diffusion of Japanese culture. Even though Japan is both geographically distant and culturally distinct from the rest of the world, it has become popular among fans globally. One of the main factors contributing to this fascination is a so-called media mix including Japan-specific media ranging from manga and anime to videogames. The aim of this master's thesis is to find out, based on a quantitative research conducted in both Czech and English-speaking environments, how various media outlets in Japan contribute to its popularity world-wide, identify the most important medium and scrutinize it through a descriptive analysis based on the theories of globalisation and cultural hybridisation to see what makes this medium so distinct. The author discovered that the most significant medium contributing to the diffusion of Japanese culture is anime. One of the main reasons behind its success is a commercial strategy of Japanese producers who intentionally remove cultural boundaries out of anime to make it globally acceptable. Another contributing factor connected to that, is the hybrid look of anime characters that do not have the physical features of Japanese people, which is why audiences tend to link the characters to their own...
Media image of Patria ship sisaster in the periodical press
Smeták, Adam ; Osvaldová, Barbora (advisor) ; Köpplová, Barbara (referee)
The bachelor's thesis "Media image of the Patria ship disaster in the periodical press" deals with the examination of media reports on the topic in three selected periodicals. The texts published in České slovo and Národní politika in the period from November 1940 to May 1945 and the texts in Lidové noviny in the period from November 1940 to April 1945 are subjected to semiotic analysis. The aim of the work is to construct a media image of the catastrophe of the ship Patria, which took place on May 25, 1940 off the coast of Palestine, within three selected media, which was published in the so called Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. In this work, individual media messages are compared. Part of the work is also a description of the historical events of the disaster of the steamer Patria, including eyewitness accounts of two Czechoslovaks who were on board the ship at the time, or watched its destruction. The bachelor's thesis is also marginally devoted to informing about the event outside the period under review, to illustrate the way in which the domestic public has learned about the disaster over the years.
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...
Operation Entebbe and its media reflection in Czechoslovak newspapers
Šmejkalová, Adéla ; Köpplová, Barbara (advisor) ; Končelík, Jakub (referee)
Bachelor thesis Operation Entebbe and its Media Reflection in Czechoslovak Newspapers deals with the event of 1976, when an Air France plane, flight Tel Aviv - Athens - Paris to Uganda, specifically to Entebbe airport, was hijacked by terrorists. The first part of the thesis describes the historical context of the event and the event itself as it happened. In the second part of this thesis media content analysis is conducted. Three periodicals are analysed: Rudé právo, Lidová demokracie and Mladá fronta. The results of the analysis reflect the attitude of Czechoslovak periodicals and thus the Czechoslovak perspective not only on the kidnapping and rescue mission, but also on the State of Israel itself. Furthermore, the results depict media manipulation caused by communist propaganda by the presentation of Czechoslovak periodicals that differs from reality.
