Summary/Abstract: This article examines the way people’s psychology influences the creation of TV news and its contents in terms of meaning and structure without disrupting its state of being authentic, factual and documentary. The analysis is based on people’s psychology factors which create particular models of human behavior related to the individual’s upbringing, intelligence, education and culture. How does this combination of characteristics influence different people’s perceptions evoked by the images on the TV screen and their psychological impact? How does people’s psychology determine the variety of rules in the sphere of information, including the ways it created and distributed? In the article, we are attempting to prove why journalists who work for TV companies should take into consideration the people’s psychology of the particular ethnic group in the process of transforming the events into news. We have examined the methods of creating and distributing TV information implemented by several TV media, such as CNN, BBC, AL-JAZEERA, etc.
