The Politics of Otherness: Stereotypes in Hungarian Media.
László Kürti
Analiza razkriva dinamiko medijske kulture na Madžarskem, ki se je Evropski uniji pridružila leta 2004. Do problemov pri medijskih predstavitvah podob manjšin pride, ko ustvarjalci občil oddaje namenijo določenim učinkom, dejansko pa oddaje ustvarijo drugačne učinke. Ta problem je najhujši ob stereotipnih podobah, ki jih ima večina o ciganski/romski majšini.


This analysis explores the dynamics of media cultures of Hungary which joined the EU in 2004. The problem of media presentation of minority images arises when media producers intend programs to produce certain effects and, in actuality, these shows produce other effects. This problem is most acute with respect to stereotypical majority images of the Gypsy/Roma minority.
