    “The era of strong media expansion brought with it an explosion of various media content and channels. First of all, today we live in the time of omnipresence of the Internet portal, which informs us more or less about everyday events. Web portals in BiH are developing and generally do not contain basic information on the ownership structure, editors, journalists, financing, etc., which, among other things, represent the “weakest link” in the media space of BiH. Therefore, in this paper, we will try to analyze to what extent local web portals in their reports / texts / contents protect privacy of citizens who have against their will become actors of certain events.”
