Summary/Abstract: One of the most important tasks of media ethics and media pedagogy is to help a person to receive the media in a proper way. For that reason, it is worth considering the aspects of media formation, media education and media upbringing. It is to be shown from the perspective of recipients of the media who are also creators of them. Therefore, everyone who works in mediosphere should feel obliged to have a proper media formation. The analyses, which emphasise basic duties that media pedagogy and media education are to fulfill, are based on the personalistic foundation of media ethics and media pedagogy. The aim of the article is to show how necessary upbringing and self-management are in order to be a responsible recipient of the media. Apart from the necessity for the ethical formation of creators and senders, there is also a necessity for the formation of recipients. It is because a human as a conscious and a free being has to make a definitive decision by oneself in one‘s own conscience about one‘s own fate.
