Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): A case-study is presented:  The interpretation of Gallup International End of Year Poll 2003 data in Romanian media. Using the communication content analysis and the discourse analysis, the authors emphasize the errors made in data presentation, the partiality of information selection and the ambiguity of results interpretation of this international poll. At the end of the study, some proposals have been made concerning the way in which public opinion polls agencies should present polls results in the media.
