Summary/Abstract: The modern media galimatias should not be perceived as relevant; and certainly not as the only source of information. The media could rather be seen as a widespread and highly influent system of quasi-wisdom. Whether the media are facing towards criticism; or towards apologetics; social reality; it is possible to evaluate media intentions; but this still does not say anything about its intellectual qualities and pretensions. The media are able to build and demolish value systems; to present information and shape new cognitive frameworks; in free time even through game to educate; but the media are not capable of awakening and encouraging spirituality; if they are not an art. Considering the fact of their increasing role; and growing presence; it is necessary to get to know their true character and through it to determine prudent behavior.
