Summary/Abstract: Media are reflection of a society as a whole. In the former Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia, media had been considered as one of the most significant means for promoting the violent dissolving process outcome of something formerly known as the Socialist Federative republic of Yugoslavia. Media were also active participants in these events, by instigating or causing many human rights violations, crimes against humanity, even atrocities committed in these regions culminating in the criminal intent – genocide. Politics is most often being utilized through media. It always carries hidden and secret moves. Therefore, political propaganda activities are difficult to spot and recognize, especially if one aims at significant changes that are entering into historical records. However, media analysis, particularly of something publicly expresses and published, may provide and effort of attempt to see through the politics whose objective had been the Great Serbian irredentist project implementation.
