Summary/Abstract: The essential role of journalism is to inform. At the same time, the well-chosen linguistic instruments and language range are of central importance in forming the number of readers. In their urge to make their texts more interesting and powerful, journalists often resort to aggressive lexicology. As a result, the readers might be manipulated by inciting a particular attitude to public figures and events.
