Abstract
Osrednja ideja demokracije leži v načelu, da naj bi običajni državljan vsaj do neke mere poznal in nadzoroval aktivnosti svoje vlade. Predpogoj za dejavnejše politično delovanje pa so dobre informacije o vladi in politiki nasploh. In tu nastopijo mediji, saj brez njih skoraj ne more potekati politično informiranje. Nevarnost za demokracijo pa lahko predstavlja oblika in vsebina političnega informiranja - če je preveč razdrobljena, nepopolna napačno izbra- na in zavajujoča. Lahko trdimo, da v sodobni družbi demokracije ne bi bilo brez masovnih medijev. Brez njih običajni državljan ne bi vedel, kaj se dogaja zunaj ameriških meja ali kaj naj si misli o ameriški zunanji politiki. Prav tako ne bi veliko vedeli o vladnih politikah v ZDA ali o kandidatih za posamezne javne funkcije. V tem smislu je razvoj množičnih medijev v ZDA, vstop časopisov, radia, televizije, računalnika v skoraj vsako gospodinjstvo pripomogel k demokratičnosti ameriške družbe.

Abstract:
The main idea of democracy lies in the principle that average citizen should be at least to a certain extent familiar with the activities of his/her country and should have control over these activities. The preliminary condition for more active participation is good information on government and politics in general. Here, the media have an important role since the political informing cannot be imagined without them. However, a form and content of political informing if being dispersed, incomplete, incorrectly chosen and misleading, may represent a danger for democracy. It could be argued that in modern society democracy cannot exist without mass media. Without them, an average citizen would not know what is going on outside the American borders or what should his/her opinion regarding American foreign policy be. He/she would also not know much about governmental policies in USA or about candidates for particular public functions. In this sense, the development of mass media in USA (newspapers, radio, television, computer entering almost every household) contributed to democracy of American society.

Keywords:media policy, USA, mass media, democracy, political communication, property relations
