    The paper shows the relation between mass media and the public and focuses on the agenda setting theory and its effects at a social level. As a main purpose agenda setting states that mass media tries to create interest to the public regarding some important issues. The theory starts with two main hypotesis: 1 – mass media does not reflect the reality; it filters and shapes it; and 2 – the media focuses only on some particular subjects; in this way the public is made to believe that these specific subjects are most important than others. (Agenda Setting Theory, 2012). For the empirical part of our research, we analyzed a number of five national newspapers and three local ones, for a period of one week. We are trying to find out the way the media agenda is build and present for the public, both at a local level as well at a national one.
