As a challenge and assurance of the most advanced universal standards for membership of a country such as the Republic of Macedonia in Euro-Atlantic structures, the primary importance is respecting and promotion of human rights, especially their promotion by the media because they have an extraordinary role and responsibility in creating an image of human rights, because through the media it is possible to realize certain fundamental human rights, the right to freedom and expression. This right includes freedom of thought without interference, also the freedom of search, receive and notify information and ideas through any medium, regardless of the boundaries. So, the media play a central role in the promotion and protection of human rights because they are presented as the so-called fourth power in addition to the powers of the legislature, the executive and the judiciary, therefore the media with their daily activity should promote and protect human rights and fundamental freedoms. This paper is addressed to issues of promotion and protection of human rights through the media, to identify their contribution and their achievement in a short time, also for the problems in terms of ensuring more effective human rights, which provides the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia. A special attention has been paid to freedom of thought and expression - including "the freedom to receive and share information and ideas for any media and regardless of the boundaries" (Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 ) - which is one of the fundamental political and civil rights that fully complies with all human rights instruments.
