Media and media reporting is one of the greatest tools of persuasion and changing of mass belief. Through history we witnessed multiple examples. Some were positive such as changes the awareness on protection of enviroment and global warming in recent times, and some were negative as ones we witnessed in World War Two. Reports long ago said that „World Leaders make decisions that majority wants, and majority can be controlled and persuaded only by mass media. In this study we put emphasis on reporting of media on one of the hot topics in Europe recent years and that is migrant crisis which started in 2015 and still continues without solution at sight. Primarily we analyse media reporting about crisis in Europe and Croatia specifically. We aren’t interested in political aspect of crisis and we will only mention some important things which are supported by real facts and will instead analyse how and how much are migrants mentioned in european media and how much influence do reports itself have on public opinion about the matter. Study is accessed from explorer side with few sub topics in focus. From how much is reporting about refugees itself represented in total media space, to information if the reports from crisis focal points are real, that is, if the real image is transferred or are some parts hidden (censored). We did interview with reporter of „Al Jazeera Balkans“ so we could have more realistic display of situation. As we said media reporting has great influence public opinion and we will try to find out in what measure. Fact is that countries in which crisis is being reported with milder tone ( e.g. Sweden) have more liberal politics towards migrant then countries which are reporting about migrants with caution (e.g. Hungary). Such opinions can maybe best be seen on looking at words which are used in reports itself. Migrant and refugee are words that are similar but people don’t experience them the same. It is clear that word migrant is much more acceptable and should describe people which are coming from war zones while word refugee though it has more humanitarian tone mostly has negative reactions and causes the gap between migrants and european citizens. In Croatian media most used word is migrant and though journalists claim that that expression robs them of all malicious things they went through , it causes more positive reactions overall.
