Some of the results from his research and contant analyses: 


Attila Zoltán, Kenyeres – József, Szabó (2016): The migration crisis: representation of a border conflict in Hungarian, German and Pan-European television news coverage. 

Language of the article: English


Some of the main results:

  Our analysed event was a serious clash between Hungarian Police and refugees from the Middle-East on the Serbian-Hungarian border in September of 2015. The very same event was interpreted in totally different ways on Hungarian and German TV channels. The interpretation was depended on what sort of preconception was being used in the build-up of a certain report. Visual and logical set-up were also highly manipulated.

  Our content analysis results give evidence that there are significant differences observed amongst certain interpretations. Possible reason for that is the differing prevailing political opinion in the examined countries. The analysis confirmed that the presentation of the events in the media is notably influenced by the prevailing political attitude of the given country. 


Attila Zoltán, Kenyeres (2016): The role of television education channels in learning - in the light of research carried out at the University of Debrecen

Title in Hungarian: A televíziós ismeretterjesztő csatornák szerepe a tanulásban – a Debreceni Egyetem hallgatóinak körében elvégzett kutatás tükrében. (Other details of publication see in the references). 

Language of article: Hungarian


Some of the main results: 

  42,6 % of the students participating in our research watch scientific education TV channels on a regular basis but with different frequencies. However 24,7 % of the Hungarian population watch these channels at least one minute per day. 

  Popular science documentaries have a certain stimulating effect on learning. Approximately half of the students participating in our analsysis started their own researches after they had watched a popular science film. 

  However, the main sources of information among the analysed students were the internet (61 %), family members (45%), books (44%), as well as friends and acquaintances (40%). So the importance of personal relationships in getting information is quite remarkable.


Attila Zoltán, Kenyeres – József, Szabó (2015): The possibilities of informal learning in television news broadcast 

Title in Hungarian: Az informális tanulás lehetőségei a televíziós híradókban. (Other details see in the references). 

Language of article: Hungarian


Some of the main results:

  Hungarian RTL TV broadcasted the most tabloid news in its prime-time evening news during the anaylised time period, nearly 3 times more than the German RTL TV. The Hungarian state-run public service television gave tabloid news more than two and a half times more than the German and Austrian state televisions. 

  The analysed Hungarian local television stations tried to report only on the most important news that affects the population most. Analytical news was most frequently broadcasted by the German RTL and the Austrian ORF, while the least frequently by the Hungarian state-run public service TV

  The most informative TV news were the ones broadcasted by the analyzed state-run public service TVs and local TVs. In German - Austrian - Hungarian relations we found that the higher the standard of living conditions in the country, the more informative the prime-time TV news are.

Some of the main results:

  Television remained the most popular mass media in Hungary in the year of 2011. Hungarian people (over the age of 4) were spending an average of 4 hours and 46 minutes per day in front of TV that time. 

  The viewers of local television stations are mainly older and less educated people. The most popular show on local televisions are the evening news and these are the first local news information source among all ages. 

  Educational television channels have a regular audience rating of around 1% nationwide in Hungary. These channels are popular among people over the age of 30 and especially over 60. As well as among people living in small towns or in rural cities and they are mostly men.
