The Atlantic Council of Serbia and Ninamedia have organized a public multimedia presentation on analytical research findings as well as analysis of media content in the press and on the internet portals on the topic “How Serbian media wrote about the terms – USA, NATO, Russia and the EU”.
Jelena Fratucan, director of Ninamedia Research, presented the results of a public opinion survey conducted in the previous period, which was addressed through questions to the public – to what extent do you trust the media in Serbia; on what basis you form an opinion about NATO; whether the media in Serbia objectively reports about NATO; what you have positively read / heard about NATO in the media; Do you support the entry of Serbia into NATO? Did you hear that the war was never on the territory of NATO members?
