Summary/Abstract: This essay comparatively examines explanations of ZAVNOBIH subject in between 1995 – 2017.

Consequently, reporting on this topic is often divided into media outlets, according to which ethnic group the media belongs to. The result is a sharply divided public discourse, in general, about the ZAVNOBIH in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Here, the great estattentionis dedicated to propaganda against ZAVNOBIH, because in one part of local media, it is politically created and is the most common form of writing about this topic.
