Axiom 2: Truth is not born in a dispute - it was fools who invented it. And truth is born in agreement. Because everyone agrees with her.
Axiom 3: "Trivial substance" always pops up.
There are a lot of things that have long required spacing. It is the separation, and not restrained criticism. Spacing because many things in the information space are not only fed up, but already fed up.
For, let's say, the “seeds” we refer to a quote from one of the author’s books, where a similar situation was considered a few years ago, but nothing has changed since then.
"While our party and ideological leaders on numerous and fruitless talk shows argue about which part of the Galaxy is the Metropolis, Zet, of course, not without the help of his Patron, has long understood1 man is different from any other. Without this understanding, it is impossible to prepare and carry out a velvet revolution.
The cartridge explained the essence of the question like this. When a person is standing with his mouth open, there are a lot of hunters stuffing crap there. The reaction of people to this is different. Some spit out shit right away. Others - when gorged to nausea. Grew up will swallow shit until, finally, chokes " .
Here you need to make the necessary note. From the experience of journalistic activities, the author realized that not all readers grasp black humor on the fly. There was a case when a well-known journalist in a very reputable magazine “smashed” one of the author’s books, taking black humor at face value. Therefore, hereinafter, black humor, of course, in the author’s understanding, will be italicized in the text.
So, on all central television channels, the main content is political talk shows. The main task of all these programs is his Majesty Rating. Rating because only it is the main criterion for the cost of broadcast advertising. In other words, the income of business owners depends on advertising revenue.
How to reach the Big Rating? It is necessary to involve as many people as possible in an argument. It does not matter what the dispute is about, if only not about the total impoverishment of the nation and the reasons for such a shameful phenomenon. It’s stupid because it turns out in front of the rest of the world, when poor people and losers live on the richest territory of the planet.
For the subject of the dispute on most talk shows, and we have a lot of people interested in politics (sociologists suggested here, because they were well paid), the ill-fated Ukraine was chosen. This topic has been crumpled for more than one year, and everything is rolling, the rating is kept at a high level.
Why it happens? Why are empty broadcasts attracted the attention of the audience? And this is technology.
"Time will tell". Moderators: Artyom Sheinin, Ekaterina Strizhenova and Anatoly Kuzichev
This talk show is conducted by two, or even three specialists.
One piece of paper reads a question to the “expert” present (who invented such “experts”?). He reads quickly, the question is confused and includes several mutually exclusive theses. So that the “expert” does not even think to say anything, he is interrupted as soon as he begins to answer, asking another question. But when he begins to respond to a new one, Artyom says: “Why I ask this question ...” - and begins to explain in a complicated way why he sets it.
He interrupts not only the leader, Ekaterina also interrupts, I suppose that the program director gives the command to join the “battle” in her ear through “Walkie-Toki”.
Therefore, almost always she asks the question out of place.
However, the “experts”, by the way, are well-paid, have become skilled and stress-resistant. They scream with all their might, trying to answer. But, at this time, already from a different angle comes the heart-rending cry of the second "expert", allegedly having the opposite opinion. He was already obligingly offered a microphone to his mouth (no, not yet a spoon). A third voice comes in from the third corner at that time, they also brought a microphone to his mouth, which was open, as expressed in the army “for the width of the butt”. All this "action" is regularly, at the command of the prompter, interrupted by stormy and prolonged applause of maximum volume. At the same time, presenters are actively troll speakers, and at the same time 3-5 people can speak.
The sound engineer vigilantly ensures that the volume of each of them is the same, so that the viewer doesn’t make out anything - suddenly there will be something clever or taboo. Apparently, “experts” are selected by the criterion of loudness of voice, and not by competence..
When the cries reach the apogee, the presenter, with a smile, utters the magic phrase - “advertising on the first channel”, and everyone stops. Therefore, you will not hear the answers to the questions asked by the moderator.
As a rule, advertising begins with a video about a means for bloating. Probably, someone decided that as a result of the “growth of the economy”, the inhabitants of the country swelled up their stomachs from gluttony under the conditions of “reduced inflation” and “income growth” and they would immediately run to pharmacies to buy cherished capsules with a miracle cure from “economic growth”.
It is possible that economic growth exists. After all, it can even be justified by the law of conservation, which the thinkers of ancient Greece, India, and other nations adhered to. For example, Empedocles believed that nothing could come from nothing and nothing could be destroyed. The same idea was expressed by Democritus. According to Aristotle, matter does not come from nothing, is not subject to multiplication or reduction, does not create and does not disappear, but only changes. Ideas about the eternity of matter are set forth in Lucretius Cara in his famous work "On the Nature of Things". The same ideas underlie all atomistic teachings (Democritus, Epicurus, Lucretius Kar, Gassendi, Lomonosov, Dalton) . And even the leader of the world proletariat, whose mummy smokes the sky in the very heart of the capital of the destroyed Russian empire, supported these postulates as confirmation of the theory of materialism.
Therefore, domestic experts from the economy have guessed that due to the emptying of the pockets of the inhabitants, their contents should “spill over” somewhere, and it is more correct to assume that it is “growing” in the “economy” and, therefore, “growing”. Can anyone refute the conservation law?
Every broadcast of this talk show ends with the leading man’s words: “Time will show,” confirming the senselessness of this action. After all, not summarized the discussion and it was not, no conclusions drawn from the opinions of experts, but no one gave them the words inserted into the "discussion", and no predictions are given about possible scenarios for the development of the situation in the long-suffering Ukraine, perhaps no one sanctioned the prediction of the political situation, although talk shows and political.
When this article was ready, a message from the President to the Federal Assembly was made. It seems that the Leader of the Nation is finally ready to undertake the overhaul of our common home.
At the same time he (for the first time in stories messages) on videos showed how he “kick ass” to all our “partners”, if that. And in an advertising break, the means for bloating disappeared. Did they roll on the recommendation of our Government?
60 minutes. Moderators: Olga Skabeeva and Evgeny Popov
This talk show comes out in a different format, more European. Here, the experts lead the discussion standing, they are wearing microphones, so they can enter into the discussion at any moment that is most uncomfortable for the opponent.
Intelligent presenters here will not beat the talk show participants. Here, slender and elegant Eugene with fashionably dressed and brightly made-up Olga is pacing on the sex projection screen. That's right, do not be like alien currents of asexual society.
As a rule, well-known politicians and opponents from among the liberal group of theorists of Russian liberalism are invited. Participants of the action are behind the barriers located against each other. Of course, behind one barrier there are supporters of the existing state of affairs, behind the opposite - its critics. To ensure that the experts do not have the opportunity to substantiate their judgment in a rigid framework (60 minutes minus commercial breaks), Olga Skabeeva asks a question for a very long time, explaining in detail why she sets it, and often answers the same verbally to it.
Somewhere overseas political analysts who came in contact with the studio via video link have disappeared. Probably, "cut" their fees for other purposes.
Those who come forward because of the first barrier say what they want and how much they want. Those who are trying to object to something because of the second barrier are godlessly troll and stopped at the most interesting place - advertising, after all.
Oddly enough, here are the same commercials about bloating.
The state channel, so everything is thought out to the smallest detail. For example, the Olympic functionaries tried to humiliate the Russian people, took away the state flag. Then they sent our brave leader to the front of the information front, who skillfully diluted the Olympic the news rather bored with the topic of Ukraine - during its reports, Ukrainian "political scientists" thoughtfully chewed their lips.
She climbed all the holes of Pyong Chkhan, pulled out all our heroes and reputable sports reporters who aired the debate about the injustices that the Olympic movement had fallen into.
And even by some miracle, she broke into the men's (!) Dressing room of our hockey squad.
Worthy of generous rewards from the eternal sponsors of the national sport!
Despite these drawbacks, this talk show can be considered more advanced. It is for intellectually more refined natures, i.e. closes another segment of the audience. Here, almost all participants at the end of the release are given 30 seconds to summarize or forecast the development of the situation. But here, advertising occupies a significant part of the program.
This is constantly confirmed by the words of the presenter after the next commercial break: “This is sixty minutes, we have only a short time left ...”
Sometimes the viewer may get lucky - in the talk show there will not be hateful Ukrainian “political analysts” who, like the church ponomare, chant the same thing year after year, “but it's still there”. This happens when discussing the affairs of the fatherland. Sometimes here and he would have entered the discussion.
Just what's the point of these discussions. Nobody listens to them, and any discussion ends with a single result - “bloating”. Do not believe? See for yourself.
Meeting point. Moderators: Olga Belova and Andrey Norkin
Here we find ourselves in an atmosphere of refined intelligence, the wit of leading, first of all, Andrei Vladimirovich and sober opinions mixed with bestial Russophobia. Which, however, flows through the channels of all television companies. The presenters mainly give their opinions to the experts and inhibit only those who go beyond the decorum or the “general line” of the talk show.
Strange as it may seem, the theme of Ukraine also prevails here. On the benches of the cozy amphitheater there are the same experts wandering from one show to another from the different corners of the world - from Ukraine, brotherly Poland, as well as the overseas metropolis. Sometimes the studio is visited by guests from the Baltic states, which are entrusted to express the official opinion of the European Union. The discussion in a rigid framework, but with “soft” methods, is supported by a smiling presenter, who is bewildering the thought of the speakers with his subtle humor.
In talk shows there is, unlike most similar programs, logic and clarity regarding the behavior of the presenters. And each program ends with a witty Jewish anecdote, which tells Norkin.
Very often one of the American experts, who has deeply studied Russian, uses Russian sayings in his speeches, although often he is trapped. For example, Norkin asks:
- Why did two American warships enter the Black Sea?
- “That's what pike is in the sea, so that the crucian doesn’t sleep,” the American found.
But then the discussion took an unexpected turn. Norkin asked:
- Do you know another Russian saying - “For every cunning f * ny there is a threaded bolt”? However, the expert did not let up, he probably did not know about “f * n with a corner” and resourcefully suggested his own solution to the problem with the “bolt”, and says:
- And we have a nut on the bolt! - and exhaled victoriously.
It was not there. In our resourcefulness you will not overdo it.
- Do you know that on American nuts the thread to our bolts does not fit? - asked the presenter, what morally “finished off” the arguments of the American side.
This is the way to conduct a discussion on all other channels!
This program can be viewed. But once. Therefore, it is best to turn on NTV a minute before 16 hours, to hear a good joke
It makes no sense to distribute other similar talk shows - they are also in the studio of Vladimir Solovyov and Roman Babayan, and even on Zvezda TV channel. It seems that the editors of these channels do not know what to do with the air in order to squeeze the highest rating possible and earn the maximum revenue from the sale of advertising. After all, only this goal is pursued by the leadership of the channels. This is evidenced by their entire information policy.
Therefore, now young families have less and less TV in the apartment. People go online. Than buying an expensive TV, even if it is “Smart”, it is better to buy a new model of a smartphone, so argues a new generation alien to the theme of Ukraine, who does not understand this frenzied studio hustle and less and less trust in TV.
We lose people by letting them in ourselves and pushing them on the Internet. We divide people. Not only in the studio, where we make them enemies. Along with the focus group, supporters of various experts are also divided. So, we divide our people, to put it mildly, ill-conceived, information policy, at the center of which monetary benefit is put. Is this the meaning of television?
In fairness, it is worth noting that on the eve of the speech of the President of the country V.V. Putin, with an annual message to the Federal Assembly, all talk shows suspiciously unanimously lowered the degree of hostility in their studios. So, they still understand what they usually do?
Accepting the position of the editors of the TV channels, we will also draw up our “rating” of the talk shows posted here.
In third place, "Time will tell" for the "impeccable" trolling studio and the loudest sounds from the soundproof studio.
On the second place "60 minutes" for the impeccable image and bold breakthrough charming leading to the men's locker room.
In the first place is the “Meeting Place” for the intelligent management of the audience and funny jokes at the end of the show.
The author is expecting from the editorial board his share of the advertising revenue for raising the NTV rating.2.
Returning to the axioms listed at the beginning of the article, we note.
Firstly, the unity of the nation is undermined by an ill-conceived information policy regarding political talk shows where society is divided, partly turning into enmity between the disputing groups.
Secondly, references to democratic pluralism of opinions are unfounded if you are not capable of developing a consolidated opinion in such talk shows, that is, at least approaching the Truth. And, therefore, such shows are not of public benefit, they only bring the growth of the notorious rating for making money on the evils of people.
Thirdly, remember the fundamental proverb of the people - someday you yourself may find yourself in an “unpleasant situation”.
So take abdominal hemorrhaging medications that you advertise so that one day you don’t».
