Who do the Russian media work for?

78
Recently in Russia there are more and more scandals related to the work of the media and specific journalists. Just the other day, another of them broke out - after the publication in the Komsomolskaya Pravda article of Ulyana Skoybeda, in which it was regretted that "from the ancestors of the current liberals, the Nazis did not do their own lampshades." Similar stories intensify the discussion not only about journalistic ethics, but also about the mission of the Russian media.


In the USSR, television, radio and newspapers worked on the formation of a new historical community - the Soviet people, and also engaged in the promotion of basic socialist values ​​- labor and creativity for the good of society, raising the education and culture of the population, promoting equality and fraternity. Along the way, the media glorified the greatness of the genius of Marx-Engels-Lenin, the communist idea as such, and of the single leaders — one or the other. But no one paid special attention to this, it was a familiar background.

Soviet journalism solved one of the most important tasks - the consolidation of society, turning it into a "one family", despite any differences (national, intellectual, regional). We are together, we are one, we are one people, moreover, advanced, educated, most reading, most talented ... This was the general line of the press.

Approved this line by different means. Much attention was paid to emphasizing the international nature of society. Numerous plots were produced in which Uzbeks, Estonians and Azeris work together on Komsomol construction sites in Siberia, Russians teach in remote Kazakh auls, while Georgians and Armenians master the permafrost in the company of Evens and Buryats ... football, volleyball and chess, and they do it well and have fun. We also saw countless fun and intelligent schoolchildren - winners of competitions and competitions.

Of course, the image of the enemy also played a major role in the work on the formation of a new historical community - in the form of the American military, threatening world peace, progressive socialist-oriented peoples and the USSR as their main hope and support.

Many complaints can be made to the Soviet press - about lacquering reality, tendentiousness, avoiding actual problems, etc. Nevertheless, the strategic meaning of the existence of journalism in the USSR was clear. A clear task was set that was implemented with varying degrees of honesty and talent. The media worked to strengthen the Soviet state and the communist ideology - to the best of the understanding of these subjects by the ideologists of the CPSU.

And now we will try to ask ourselves the question: what problem does the media solve in today's Russia? Who do they work for? What are the purpose, role, meaning of their activities?

In my opinion, the main function of any national journalism is to contribute to the coherence of the nation, to form a common agenda, a common information field. But the black-and-yellow shaft, which the media treat us to, has nothing in common with these tasks. Five accidents, three murders, a fight on interethnic grounds and a couple of fires with human victims — you cannot make any porridge from such an ax. Connectivity can only be built on the positive, on the facts that show that living in this country, among these people, is good. And we will not find such information in our afternoon with fire. Instead, the heading "Where to fell" is popular. The only thing where the positive presentation of the material still prevails is the subject of victory in the Great Patriotic War, but this reservoir has been drained almost to the bottom ...

How deliberately did Russian journalism change into a black and yellow gamut? And the whole - and the so-called state, and belonging to individual oligarchs, and even seems to be free ... I had to hear very different versions on this topic. In liberal circles, there is an opinion that dill, aggression and violence, which dominate in the state-run media, is the result of a conscious policy of Kremlin ideologues. Thus, people are shown how terrible and dangerous life is, and how a country needs a strong leader - the father of the nation, who alone keeps us from being completely plunged into chaos. On the other hand, the so-called liberal media are also interested in showing the horrors of life in Russia, since this will contribute to the collapse of the existing regime. Thus, in solving the problem of denigrating reality, the interests of state and liberal media coincide surprisingly.

There is another view of the roots of the situation. In 1990, in the wake of the lifting of all prohibitions, Russian journalism began to stupidly copy English-language tabloids, built on the awakening of "animal" instincts. This tendency imperceptibly overwhelmed the entire media market, and readers learned to live on such content. Now, with this needle does not get off - just like with oil. Non-state media can not abandon the "animal" subjects, because they immediately lose their ratings and advertising, and they simply have nothing to live for, and the state ones - because, again, they lose viewers who are addicted to peeping through the keyhole, blood and horrors , and as a result they will not be able to ensure the advancement of politically correct ideas, if they are entrusted with this.

As a result, if not so long ago we were shown joint dances and dances of Russians, Uzbeks and Georgians, now they strive to show how they cut each other, beat and rape. If earlier we saw what advanced schoolchildren we have, caring mothers, educators and teachers, now in the foreground are alcoholics and degradants who beat children, persecute and torture, and children themselves appear on the screens solely as either victims or juvenile scumbags. If before we were rubbed endlessly about the achievements of science and production, now it’s solely about their collapse, death and flight of all specialists to more prosperous countries. Government officials and deputies are all thieves and corrupt officials who spit on the interests of the people, militiamen and policemen are mentally unstable alcoholics and sadists, extorting money from everything that moves.

What are there still left underdone light images? Beautiful girls? Dull greedy fools. Athletes? They all sit on chemistry. Scientists? Either they survived from the mind of old age, or they fled to Western scientific centers.

As for the journalists themselves, they are increasingly presented as aggressive machines for creating shocking stories that have no moral restrictions. What are the programs of Mr. Malakhov alone ... But he sets the tone for hundreds of beginners, "feather sharks."

Working without a top-down agenda for Russian journalism turned out to be too difficult — intellectual and moral. After all, freedom fell on journalists as unexpectedly as on all others, and, like everyone, the journalistic professional community turned out to be not ready for it.

In American or, say, British journalism, there are very clear social attitudes regarding what is possible and what is not. The politically incorrect presentation of material on inter-ethnic relations, for example, will not work. Because there is an understanding: it leads to the shaking of the foundations of the state. And along with the tabloids, journalism of a different quality, for which there is also demand, feels great, from both the state and society. And then, of course, another question arises: is it not the reason for the degradation of Russian journalism that our state and society have not yet been able to work out any coherent agenda, no image of the future?

What is the ideology of the Putin team? What kind of society do we build, what basic values ​​should citizens be brought up on? No answer. And even if we are being offered a formal answer, then its unconvincing is too obvious, too obviously the country's leadership itself is in a state of ideological vacuum. In general, there is no value system either above or below.

In these conditions, and journalism is back to normal - to the animal nature of human nature. Having lost one of its main components - the mission, journalism turns into a ship without a rudder and sails, the only guide for the movement of which is money, profit. The media, which generally have to give society a high meaning, instill a certain system of values ​​and love for their country, are engaged in stupid earning money from the exploitation of basic human instincts.

Meanwhile, in the United States and in Britain - the strongholds and ancestors of the so-called free press - the ideology is present in huge doses, and journalists are very zealously defending it. There are in the local media and goodies, and lulling myths, and taboo territory. In general, having borrowed only the topics of tabloids from the West, we very much primitive our information field, and, most importantly, a whole generation of journalists who do not know how to work for a positive at all.

But in fact, in our life, as before, mixed all - and good, and bad, and evil, and good. But the traumatized journalism does not see this - the piece of ice hit the eye, just like in the fairy tale about the Snow Queen.

      There is no free press, no media, everything works for money.
      And if so, then everything that maximizes profits is promoted. Let us recall the central TV, newspapers and magazines of the 90s, and of the 2000s - simply earning money from the promotion of alcohol, beer, tobacco, prostitution, hidden drug advertising, propaganda of ethnic hatred, i.e. all the base that destroys the human soul and health.
      Based on the foregoing, the state’s task is to introduce, whether we like it or not, censorship prohibiting such media actions.
      The work of the media should be subject to strict media laws, according to which publications and editorial offices, individual journalists and editors who violate the rules of the game should be closed or imposed with huge fines. And some "journalists" were simply given a "wolf ticket", i.e. it is forbidden to work in this specialty for a certain period of time.
      It is impossible without this, otherwise the process of nation’s self-awareness will continue to collapse to its complete, its nation, disintegration.

        In American or, say, British journalism, there are very clear public attitudes about what is possible and what is not. An incorrect political presentation of material on the part of interethnic relations, for example, will fail. Because there is an understanding: this leads to undermining the foundations of the state
        Everything is 100% true
        Recall the “publicity” of the hunchback, but in fact when they began to saturate everything created in that country before that, the whole history of the Great State, and on the contrary, all the negativity was made, it was then that it began to be propagated
        national intransigence among the peoples of the USSR, on which he rested, the cult of the grub of clothes and the dollar
        and the result of 91 did not become a Great Country

        Here was such an organ in the USSR
        Agitprop (short for agitation and propaganda) is the common name for the Department of Agitation and Propaganda under the Central Committee of the CPSU (formerly the Central Committee of the CPSU (b)) and local committees of the CPSU in the USSR at different times.
        The term has gained an expanded meaning - “propaganda” in general and Soviet propaganda in particular.
        And there was nothing wrong with that

        Journalists work on the principle that people hawala (this is their expression). Now we have three different directions in journalism: the first is a purely state one, praising and writing only positive reviews about the authorities, criticizing any manifestation of oppositional phenomena, not disdaining lies and slander; the second - oppositional - is no better than the state, it tries to defame the authorities in every way, also not shying away from lies: the third is the "yellow press", the most widely read in Russia ("Express newspaper", "Your day", etc.), and it the most dangerous, in the sense that people who read this nonsense and burdensome, become inadequate. On the one hand, the "yellow press" helps the state. Let people read about who married, whom, who got divorced, who fell ill or who went crazy, how they will delve into state affairs. Hence the correspondents and reporters who cannot write a good essay or article, but sprinkle sensations, and some kind of beleberd. Earlier, if anyone remembers, there were correspondents: Tsvetaev - they read his "Travel Notes from Japan", Genrikh Borovik, Boris Kalyagin, and many others. They could print an article in a newspaper, and prepare a TV story, while they managed to insert some sedition and none of the controlling bodies even noticed.

          That's who modern half-educated journalists should focus on. And they are guided by the GOLDEN BODY. There is a friend from this fraternity from a provincial publication. According to him, I’ll write for your money, any article. Well it shouldn't be like that. It's time to introduce censorship in the media and educational institutions releasing such specialists.

    In liberal circles, there is an opinion that chernukha, aggression and violence, which dominate the state media, are the result of a conscious policy of Kremlin ideologists.

    Yeah, and the liberal media treat us exclusively with positive images, thoughts, and the most reliable information. It seems that way, but vice versa!

    There is nothing surprising in this; benchmarks, including those in the media, have changed.
    Previously, ideology was a priority, now only profit, the rest is sideways. It remains only to choose what to read and what to watch, though the choice is very limited.

    My personal opinion is that it is high time in Russia to create a ministry of propaganda that would be responsible for the information security of society, exercise control over the media (yes, that’s it! And let the liberals howl about freedom of speech!), Art, waged an information war in the interests of Russia! Propagated true values ​​in the spiritual and personal sphere!

      Comrade Warrant Officer, what are you talking about! Goebbels was the best propaganda system, no one has come up with the best (in all parameters). But so any ministry expresses (embodies) the direction given to it by its leaders - it’s not the people, it’s not elected from the people, and it’s not even subject to the Duma! You look where we have education, medicine, science - IMHO the creation of such a ministry will only worsen the situation. No, the idea itself is theoretically wonderful, but not with us now, because everything you write about will be exactly the opposite: ((

      Briefly and clearly, the country has an idea.
      There is a message from the president. Until the 20th year, the army and navy will be restored, and all these pro-Western liberoid pseudo-journalists and other figures will get a kick in the ass.
      A little bit thinking people have long understood the idea.

      In what form do you still have the idea to present this ?? Yes, the Russian media have not been owned since 1991 and even earlier, but everything will change. And there will be no frank anti-Russian articles, and such hidden anti-Russian ones, in which the destructive grain is laid between the lines.

        In what form do you still have the idea to present this ??

        Dear Gregory, then let's define what an "idea" is. For me - the strategic goal of the country, for which the nation works together. For example, building socialism, the Third Reich, emancipation of slaves, land for peasants, etc. Under the USSR (on the verge of the 70s / 80s) I will not exactly express what the strategic goal was, probably - to preserve the lives and way of life of the people in the face of NATO, to help the fraternal peoples ... Well, here I am there was some common goal, task, the people were moving somewhere forward, and all together. Personal well-being, of course, was also important, no one denies this, but not only, and there was something that unites us.
        Now - what unites us? Outrage over the war in Syria and children in Norway? But it’s only for averting eyes, this is not an idea! How many years have passed since Libya - and nowhere is it mentioned. Well, only we are here on the forum. Because they moved the arrows to the above news. After that they will transfer something else, and this will be forgotten. And the idea should be constant, it should strive for it, they hope ... Well, excuse me, I’m not a writer, I don’t know how to express it :(
        And we have seyas - on the contrary, how to fill a pocket more than that of a neighbor. What for? What then? To what? Goals - no ...
        In my opinion, the restoration of the army and navy is not an idea, not a goal uniting a nation, but a means for something. Kick out the reporters? This is also a riffraff, the small components of something. But what?
        You say, "Do thinking people understand?" Excuse me, I probably think badly in old age :(, but please enlighten. You probably mean the revival of Russia. But these are only words. They must be supported by deeds, but I don’t see deeds. On the contrary, I see a contradiction between words and what is happening. what is Russia? It is a collection of people, economy, spirituality, etc. People - here is the article. Where is education, medicine, history? Economy - I am silent ...
        Once again, I’m sorry to write not really a master, but somehow ...

          Dear Eugene hi
          No matter who says it, Russia gets stronger after Yeltsin’s departure, and this is a fact, making sure that you can often just look out the window.

          Yes, not as fast as anyone would like, but as the dog says, the caravan moves on. We do not yet have such sovereignty to proclaim ideas in the spirit of the USSR, but still something is being done!
          And the restoration of the army plays a decisive role in this.

          And articles and programs that undermine the integrity of the country are an anti-state policy that has been pursued by our foreign and overseas partners for a long time, and this is not a trifle!

          This is an indicator of how much everything has been seized in Russia, and here everything is just serious.

          And from there, we suffer from both education and medicine, and history! The information field associated with this and even laws are created in NPOs, get into the State Duma and are accepted there using repressive mechanisms \ intimidation \ bribes.

          But what is Ms. Tatiana and other "journalists" like her doing serving foreign interests in Russia?
          Yes, yes, through such cunning articles, she brings down everything on Putin!

            Yes, I mostly agree with you, but the question was about a unifying and guiding idea, and I did not understand you in this part. Securing Sovereignty? That it does not exist is also understandable, but so few (let's not clarify what "sovereignty" is :))) cannot unite the people with this. nobody understands anything, therefore it is not an idea. You write correctly -

            No matter who says it, Russia is getting stronger after Yeltsin’s departure, and this is a fact

            - because the majority thinks that everything in the country is more or less in order. And judging by this phrase of yours you also think about something like that :)
            But here dear about "getting stronger" I can argue with you. You see, it's all about the way you count. I have been doing marketing and strategy for the last 15 years, so I took over something :) Namely.
            By the way, I’m always ... upset - the right word is the shortsightedness of people. The authorities and the press are telling us: oooh, the Russian car market has come in second place in Europe! How well we began to live! Ooooh, how much coal we got - we broke the record of Soviet times! Ooooh, kept gas prices down - well done power! Ooooh, what good roads we have - in the neighboring area, look what bad roads! well, etc. And people are happy about it. Because life is getting better.
            On the one hand, I agree, in accordance with the theories of management and leadership, people need to show their achievements and give thanks for them. Then people will be more proactive, more efficient, etc. to work and enjoy further.
            But this should not be a bias into deception.
            Because it is not necessary to compare the absolute values ​​of achievements, not to build on the "past periods", but to compare in aggregate parameters with other countries, what has changed for them during this time, for example:
            a) the car market and 2 place, but in terms of quantity and in a tiny decaying Europe, and you can’t get to China and the USA. And other market parameters - the unit cost of these cars sold, the number of 1000 people, the frequency of car changes, the average age? And - compare with other countries?
            b) The coal industry is in someone else's hands, and it was not we who mined, but they, because they need this coal, but will not need it, and will not get it. But the whole of Russia produces coal many times less than the United States and China, we only reached the Soviet results, and they went far ahead.
            c) gasoline in America, which exports it for half the world, is cheaper than ours where oil is extracted in 200km
            d) huge amounts of money are poured into road repairs every year (and in your pocket), but in the USA and even China they have been built - and forgotten. Ah, our climate is so harsh! But the road is calculated (builders, ay) not by climate, but by the transition cycles through 0С, which are much more in Norway and the north of the USA. It’s just that they don’t lay a non-woven fabric and a geogrid, otherwise you won’t lie on the repair and on the gravel.
            Etc., well, you understood the idea - everything is known in comparison ...

                    After all, the President’s message to the Federal Assembly!

                    for lack of anything else ... Unfortunately, this is of course IMHO, despite the fact that there were certainly quite a lot of interesting things, directions, declarations, goals, etc. etc., in general, for a long time I have perceived such events as saying something somewhat divorced from reality :( Before, I still somehow hoped that, yes, soon, soon it would be as they say, but after several :) messages, seeing that everything is turned upside down, is not fulfilled, and vice versa is being performed in the wrong direction (about salaries, etc. for example), I see at least a part of it but a lie, which makes us doubt everything else and the whole :(
                    I apologize for pessimism, well, not that ... :( Although, I say, something sensible in particular will come out, the message is IMHO an order of magnitude! :) more efficient and encouraging than playing the questions and answers with the people :) )
                    PS if anyone understands the theory of leadership (leadership), help enlighten :)
                    In general, I (we) are talking here about one of 6 (in the widespread theory) leadership styles - idealistic, in which "the leader inspires people by drawing them an attractive image of the future" (for example, http://www.cfsgroup.ru/view_services.php ? id = 13). And what about us?

            I’m looking out the window and I don’t see the changes you promised. And I see homeless people digging in the trash; primer instead of asphalt; lack of lanterns along the road; garbage covering everything around; motor ships on the Volga, unable to moor due to the lack of a pier (destroyed), broken hulls of an aircraft plant. Nope! Not impressive, as you put it, the "fortress" of Russia!

            And, you see, dear, about the restoration of the army, you are bent! Well, you can’t do that! Sometimes it’s necessary to move the brains themselves, and not just listen to our leaders.

    I'm afraid these are not ruined and lost values. This is a well-organized info war. You estimate yourself. We are simply bombarded with negativity. They do not throw it up from time to time, but they roll it over the top of its head. They force me to eat more. Of course, everyone decides for himself. But how many self-resolving? More and more people are becoming bioadditives of the media and ruminant. And the longer they live like that, the more they believe that this is the only way. What else simply does not happen.
    When you enter the ward of color blind people (where there are a lot of them), only at first you notice their inferiority. Then it seems that you yourself are not normal. Colorblind in advance I'm sorry.

    "What is the ideology of Putin's team?" "Meanwhile, both in the United States and Britain - the strongholds and progenitors of the so-called free press - ideology is present in huge doses, and journalists are very zealous in defending it."

    Tanyusha, before talking about "ideology" in the Russian media and praising our geopolitical "partners", do not be lazy - open the Constitution of the Russian Federation (written, by the way, by the Americans) and read article 13, clause 2
    "No ideology can be established as state or mandatory."

    If you did not know this before, then you are a worthless publicist.
    If you knew, but indignantly done, then you work for the ENEMIES of RUSSIA.

    In addition, almost everyone already knows that the Russian media have been controlled by the State Department through NGOs for the past 22 years. Or is this a discovery for you too?

    We need to return sovereignty! And after that it will be possible to sort out the "liberal" media in a week.

      I say this as a former journalist with more than 25 years of experience working on TV, radio, magazines and newspapers.
      The editorial policy is formed by the owners, founders, investors of the media.
      At the regional level, it largely depends on the executive branch, which “can” facilitate the functioning of the media subject.

    I especially liked this, the quote: "In American or, say, British journalism, there are very clear social attitudes about what is allowed and what is not."
    We have read, we know, that heresy which they carry on orders from the "top" and by order of the mighty of this world is striking in its lack of principle. Illiteracy goes beyond all boundaries. This is for them and for us. A trivial example, the well-known LHC (Large Hadron Collider), is called - ANDROIDNY collider. Often news, on the verge of a foul (rumor), and then even a refutation is not given. A well-known example, Zh.Alferov's interview on the Dozhd channel, where he (the smartest and most intelligent person) "smeared" a magazine on the wall.
    Of course there are journalists to whom I take off my hat. The guys are doing a titanic and necessary job. But there are not so many of them. And everything else is an underdog, unprincipled, cynical, poorly educated bunch of rednecks who want one thing - MONEY. And as for how on TV (this is also the media), drag relatives, friends, acquaintances, etc., generally keep quiet. It is enough to turn on any channel in the morning. "stars" of show business, their mothers, musical groups in full force, a bunch of "bohemians" released in circulation, but strongly desiring fame. And what they say is darkness.
    Where are the educational programs and channels? They are there, but they are on cable networks. Why not to the place of Ren-TV (Prokopenko and Chapman, except for irritation and bewilderment, do not cause anything), instead of "House 2" (yes to hell with it, let anyone see it, only in cable packages), "Holidays in Mexico" , channel "Disney" do not show - "My Planet", "Science 2.0", "History" on the air. And all this dregs, which I gave as an example - to transfer them to cable packages, there is already enough junk.

    Considering the antogonism in the press, I conclude that adhering to moral and ethical standards and past education, patriotic media outlets give way to the aggressive offensive of vulgarity and revisionism of the past, adopted by the liberals of modern Russia.
    Patriotism is fragmented, and the liberal media in a single fist dictate their will to the mass consciousness.
    And I'm not sure that this "kulak" is not controlled from centers hostile to Russia.
    Will needed political leadership to eliminate hostile media, but there is no such will.

    "... is it not the reason for the degradation of Russian journalism that our state and society still failed to work out any coherent agenda, no image of the future? " (by the author).

    Absolutely a dot! It is most important. The state, our chosen ones, should, sensing the demands of society, form content. And journalism will have to comply and respond to it. She just can not shrug it off.
    In the 90s the principle was voiced: "Get rich! Everything is possible!" So we are still chewing the consequences of this parodigma voiced to society. And the state has no new vector :(

    In Soviet times, entering the Faculty of Journalism immediately after school was very, very difficult. Priority was given to people who had gone through the army, and even better, to the same, consisting of the party. And that made a lot of sense. Like it or not, people responsible and having gone through a considerable school of life got there. And not only in ideology. And for the most part - in the responsibility that a chosen profession imposes on you. Who of the journalists now recalls responsibility for what was written or said? Very few. And it turns out that you don’t need to work as a journalist with specialized education at all ... And on TV, it's a nightmare, what’s going on. Yes, the State Department would have collapsed from the oak if he found out who supposedly works for him. TV space must be cleaned very much. But it seems that this is no longer possible. But, at least, push everyone who does not have a specialized education. It should be a little easier to breathe.

      I don’t know how you are winkedAnd in our country beyond the Urals, in the beginning of the 80s, priority was given to candidates who have at least a little practice of working in the media. A very important step was to go through an interview. This was one of the most important exams in which examiners read the outline of a person.
      For two groups of the 1st year, with a total of fifty people, there were no party parties at all.
      In general ... The low educational, professional and life experience of our magazines is still, secondly, in the understanding of what is happening. The main thing is an editorial policy that gives certain attitudes to reflect what is happening.

    In science there is a postulate that a hypothesis explaining known facts becomes a theory. Take the hypothesis of a clever manipulation of the media with the aim of the collapse of Russia. The clever one is that Gazprom's TNT drives porn, Channel One TV series horror films and agitates for tolerance to thieving ministers and no one calls for working in production, in agriculture. Clever in the division of labor on the collapse.

    Well ... you forgive me, but to say that the media work against the country in the conditions of our country is to suffer from blindness. Virtually all television media outlets are under tight government control. Most print media are either either government-controlled or simply not working with political information. Only on the Internet is there a more or less real freedom of speech.

      The government's policy towards the media cannot be called stupid. It acts as it is written in all textbooks - it takes over the media. From a political point of view, he does everything right. The media create the images by which the country lives. The media is a huge force. And therefore, the authorities cannot allow this force not to be subordinate to it, for this force to carry out an independent policy. It is another matter that, having seized the media, the authorities behave like a "bear in a china shop" - they work with the media roughly and clumsily. But, apparently, the KGB government simply does not know how to work differently.
      however, the authorities have a cunning plan. that shaft of vulgarity, yellowness, artistic mediocrity that passes through our media completely changes the consciousness of the average person. And now he is not interested in how funds are allocated in the budget. Now he is interested in the next scandals in pop parties, what they carry, what they sleep in, who sleeps with whom and who divorced whom. Do you think Ernsts, Senkevichs and other Sungorkins, on their own initiative, fill the media with yellowness and trash? No, this is a policy of the authorities to fool the population.

      what open clear eyes-
      rapist, burglar, hijacker, killer,
      molester, and thieves, and thieves, and thieves ...

      something like this is happening in a drawer.

          -Do not read Soviet newspapers before dinner!
          - So there are no others!
          - Here are not any and do not read!
          Something like that at Bulgakov. Our news on TV - murders, disasters, parliament, Syria, Gazprom, oil prices - 90% of the time. Well their nah ...

    "Soviet journalism solved one of the most important tasks - the consolidation of society, turning it into" one family ", despite any differences (national, intellectual, regional). We are together, we are united, we are one people, moreover, an advanced, educated , the most reading, the most talented ... This was the general line of the press. "- this task is important for any system, including the capitalist, if the state does not understand this, then the power is not durable. As soon as the press starts working against the goals of power - write wasted, there will be those who will direct her in the right direction. And now, they are trying to correlate Russia with the Soviet Union, therefore there is only one goal - to destroy Russia, and the press is working for this.

    With the help of the targeted work of the media, one can influence public consciousness, arouse huge masses of people to protest at will, lobby the business interests of various corporations, push through obvious utopian ideas, sell "defective and unnecessary goods to anyone, etc., etc. .. It is not for nothing that most of the media in the United States belong to Jewish Americans (this was argued by media tycoon Murdoch), so the American society supports Israel's aggressive policy. We always have the right to choose, but political manipulation technologies affect the psyche of almost any person, even for a short period . We need a modern law that would regulate the work and rules for the presentation of information to the media.

      Dear Albertych, you are saying everything correctly, but again it’s unrealistic like the people above :(
      What is the law? It will be developed by the same people who now "influence the masses", do you think they will not leave loopholes there? Yes, even if the law will be developed by "convinced communists" (in a good sense of the word, without irony), - bypass any law like two fingers ... A simple example is the ban on the sale of alcohol at night. just a couple of days ago I saw a TV show (this was probably an example for others how to act :)) how they get around it: they sell some figogulinka, and for buying it, alcohol is a gift :) All laws are observed, and you say ... :(
      Threat no matter what they say about Stalin, without considering the bad sides now, as I understand it, they always looked at him in the root, and not in the wording of the law.

    About the media.

    I think that there is incompetence of journalists, and a craving for sensations (the desire to make money on this), and of course, playing "at someone else's gates" (in the interests of adversaries), not without this. Nice bouquet!

    That's when you regret the lack of censorship!

    I myself had the misfortune of giving, somehow, an interview on a professional topic to a female journalist from the regional TV news channel. I was struck by her position: speak more simply - the audience will not understand! And what can you think of her as a specialist? I thought so ... For whom, these gentlemen, take our population? "People eat everything"? And nonsense, and lies, and spelling errors (on the air and in the text) ...

    No, guys, there are people so incompetent that they are absolutely not allowed to enter this profession!
    Of course, this environment has its own professionals. But they can not be heard and can not be seen against the general background of Chernukha.

    However, this state of affairs is not only in the media. Wherever you stumble, there are similar problems everywhere.

      The percentage of incompetent I think is no different from incompetent in another industry. Craving for sensations is just a game on the field of consumers. The journalists themselves do not need a sensation. Sensation is needed by the average man. Here are the journalists and chasing after the sensations. I don’t see anything bad in my desire to earn. You probably also do not mind making money. Each has its own methods. The interests of adversaries are ridiculous and the absence of censorship is ridiculous. In all federal media, censorship has long been present. Not directly, as in the Soviet Union. But from this it does not become less effective. Adversaries - yes you see enemies everywhere. It is time to end the trench consciousness.
      About your example. I bow that the journalist corrected you correctly. After all, if the transmission channel is for a wide range of consumers, then narrow professional topics may not be interesting and boring for them. And whatever one may say, TV must take care of the rating, because this is how they earn their living. and whom do they accept our population? Yes, they accept everything correctly, the population has long been fooled and "hawala" what the authorities feed them with.
      And the media were flooded with blackthroat, not because the journalists were not competent, but because our life was, by and large, black-headed. The media do not create our life, they only reflect it.

    Interested in the numbers in the picture at the beginning of the article 1991 - 2013. I do not agree. Already at the beginning of the second half of the 80s, several employees of Komsomolskaya Pravda went on an internship to America. I don’t remember the newspaper in which they trained, but upon their return these "frog-travelers" began very actively to introduce what they had absorbed into our, still Soviet life.

    State-owned media are required to work for the state. On his safety, the unification of all peoples, the people who form him, on the upbringing of the population, his education. They are obliged to show the real history of our state, even in series, and not what is beneficial to pseudo-historians. If the British Social Democratic Party was funded by the British, if they killed Lenin when he was little, not completely, he finally made his own conclusions. If 6 emperors and one tsar were killed from the filing of the English (officially proved: Paul 1, Nikolai 2), then this is necessary show the people of Russia.
    Given that our state. watching channels in other countries, it is necessary to show the real history of other countries.
    Starting with the "Democratic" USSA, ending with their completely non-democratic allies from the countries of the Arabian Peninsula. You can also periodically mention who brought Adolf to power (the same banks that supported Trotsky). And also declassify All archives of the 30s. There, the ancestors of today's belolentochniks pounded at each other in full. And the "creative" intelligentsia is also on the neighbors

      I think if they open the archives (those that have not yet been opened) it will be a blow to the reputation of our country. and then everyone knocked on everyone. and beloletochniki. and intelligence. and staunch party members. I think that when they come for you, and then the NKVD mocks you, many began to knock. but what does "steel" mean? Many were already knocking.
      there is no state media. But they can run the media without ownership. which they do beautifully. and abroad the channel RT (Russia Today) broadcasts. Not bad by the way prophetic. Has a solid audience. So it conveys to others the view of our state on everything. We need to worry less about who and what thinks in the "democratic media and .... the countries of the Arabian Peninsula." We need to worry more about ourselves. Those who want something to cash in on our problems use our weakness - economy, education. We need to be strong. And not only in terms of weapons (but this, of course, too). We need to be strong economically. and then we will not give a damn about what other countries think of us. This is the policy pursued by the United States

    The article is a big PLUS. Only now the emphasis is slightly shifted to the other side. In the media now everything is decided by money, government, opposition and yellow, and the amount of money is determined by their rating, i.e. the number of TV viewers, radio listeners and site visitors. As long as our people choose Malakhov instead of Science 2.0 and Echo of Moscow instead of Popular Mechanics, the state cannot do anything. There is no need to compare Soviet times and modern times. Under the USSR there were 2 state TV channels and several radio channels, now there are tens of hundreds of TV and radio, hundreds of thousands of information sites, etc. I would like to ask a question for fans of strict censorship, how are you going to control all this? Until you yourself begin to explain to yourself and others what is good and what is bad, no one will be able to do this, and it is useless to rely on journalists, because journalism is the second most corrupt profession.

      Tell me in which country do people choose popular science programs, and not all kinds of talk shows? in the same America, where science is probably the most advanced in the top rating programs like the Oprah Winfrey Show, and not the Discovery Science channel. It has always been so, it will be so.
      And what is good and what is bad? to whom and what to explain? the country still can not understand Stalin, is it good or bad?

    I will add my five kopecks on the topic of the media: there is a monthly "Top Secret" at the origins of which were Artyom Borovik and Yulian Semyonov, I have been reading this monthly since the 80s. It was a cool monthly, it contained everything from history to articles by L. Kislinskaya on criminal topics, investigations in the 90s on privatization, classic journalism. Then the electronic version of this monthly appeared, it was normal, there was something to read, interesting objective articles on any topic. The style was similar to A. Karaulov's program "Moment of Truth", Karaulov By the way, he was a friend of A. Borovik, but in December 2012 the editor-in-chief of the monthly was changed, some woman appeared, I don't even remember her last name, and literally from February 2013 the tone and style of articles changed dramatically. "with" Express newspaper ". Literally in every article there is either the GULAG, the "bloody tyrant" Stalin, or Putin in all his liberal guises and his "gebesh" regime. That is how, quietly, lightly, unnoticed by those around us, there is a substitution in consciousness for what is beneficial to the enemy. I'm not afraid of this word because I consider the enemies of all who throw mud at their country. My will-37 year would seem to them paradise.
