Description

“The function of the media in Albania of the period immediately after the communism fall, is that of the regulator in the political behavior of the Albanian citizens, precisely of the establishment of reciprocal relations between him and the political forces of the country. In a way, the media has become a very important factor in building the political relations of society and in some sense of the state itself, ”says Prof. Artan Fuga. But even though it has been thirty years since then, the same phenomenon is again observed: the media and politics go as far as they need to get along with each other, because this coexistence is imposed by the harsh social and political terrain for years. This paper seeks to analyze precisely this, the connection and dependence of the media on politics and vice versa ,in Albania. Often, the clash of the two is forced to produce fake news, Fake News which is simultaneously manipulate and are manipulated by social, political and media realities. From this context, we say that the press itself is the carrier and transmitter of social subjectivity and an equally important element of the political entities themselves in the Albanian transitional society.
