In this article the authors provide theoretical overview of terms media, politics, international politics, of the state as a subject of international law, the freedom of information, as well as the impact of the politics over the state. The state is the supreme organization of humanity today. In every country, the creation of a public opinion occupies a significant place. Function-bearers, depending on the degree of democracy, also depending on the political system and constitutional order, in their own way tend to ensure the favour of the public opinion in order to rule over a longer period and in a safer manner. The public opinion is a complex social and political phenomenon. Rights and freedoms on the one hand are basic criteria and a measure of the position and the role of the people and citizens in the society, and democratic regime (the system) on the other. They are an instrument to limit the power and disable its arbitrariness and abuse. Knowing that the public opinion creates courts for modus operandi of the community and appreciation for the actions of the government, it is expected that the political rulers seek to impose their influence on the creation of public opinion in order to retain or maintain the power. Public opinion as a form of political consciousness is associated with the political system as an institutional base of the political process.
