Abstract

Media, Culture and Propaganda1 Viktor Ivan � i � Introduction The term 'media war' between Croats and Serbs is often and falsely used as if it were a fact beyond doubt. This observation may indeed be brought into question. First of all, we should do away with the myth that there is a conflict between the two official war propagandas, and that this conflict will end with one of them as the winner and the other defeated. On the contrary, the two propagandas live in perfect symbiosis; one could easily state that there is no war and no conflict at all. If their goals are considered, there is not a single point of conflict between the Croatian and Serbian official war propagandas. There are no controversial details, no reasons for misunderstanding, and therefore no justifications for the all out war until final victory or defeat has been achieved. Croats and Serbs do fight each other, but their media - reflected in their official propagandas - are in complete harmony. The media, of course, give a false image of reality. This is of course pure propaganda, but on both sides propaganda accounts for 90% of the media. The two
