The mirror of society

63
The mirror of societyIf the media often likes to call themselves “the mirror of society”, then it must be admitted that they have some grounds for this. Some of them - because, looking at a part of the Russian media, I want to look at their belonging to society more closely.


They are so desperately and selflessly protecting ... no, not freedom of speech, but the interests of another state. Or a whole group of states.
But I am interested in something else - if the media is a mirror of society, then what is a mirror of the media? What makes it possible to adequately evaluate their work? Whatever one may say, and the conclusion suggests itself - society is a mirror for journalists and those publications in which they work. A way to learn the opinion of society is a sociological survey.

A similar poll was recently conducted by the Public Opinion Foundation in order to find out the opinion of Russians on a whole range of issues related to journalism and the media.

The results give us a lot of food for thought and analysis. The first question was: “From which media do you usually learn about the latest events in our country?” The answers show that the majority of Russians learn about the main events in the country from Central Television.

A lot has been said about the decline of the role of TV and information programs for a long time, however, according to the POF, the number of those who prefer to find out news on the leading TV channels, it has not changed at all for the year that has passed since the last survey (88%), and the number of those who watch regional and local channels for the same purpose even increased slightly (from 25% to 28%).

The number of those who get information from the Internet has slightly increased (from 32% to 42%), the number of people who like to rustle through the central newspaper has increased only slightly (from 16% to 17%). But they lost in trust of the audience (or in the convenience of receiving information) and, accordingly, the number of receiving information from: central radio (from 14% to 13%), regional or local newspapers (from 14% to 10%) and regional and local radio (from 6% to 5%).

The trend is obvious - the role of the Internet is growing, but not so catastrophically fast, as predicted. I myself can say that it is the news programs of the central channels - this is exactly what I look at the “box”.

Equally, as a person blogging, I recognize some of the information on the Internet by looking at a whole range of resources. But the newspapers, on paper, clearly lose to Internet resources and even to themselves, but on the World Wide Web.

The second question of the poll is even more curious: “Do you think the Russian mass media cover the events taking place in modern Russia, on the whole, objectively or not objectively?”. 60% agreed that objectively, 23% said no, and 17% found it difficult to answer.

A further table of breakdowns of answers by age gives us a quite predictable picture: those who consider the media to be biased are most of all young, reaching their peak at the age of 31 – 45 (28%). Conversely, the number of those who are satisfied with objectivity grows with increasing age, having its maximum, starting to grow in the range of 46 – 60 or more years (63%).

The POF poll is conducted immediately after an important historical event - the reunification of Russia and the Crimea. Mass support for this action, carried out by the Russian authorities after the triumphant results of the referendum in the Crimea, provides a curious opportunity to watch the media in that very “mirror” and find out what people think about the work of journalists from various media.

60% of respondents are satisfied with the objectivity of TV, and it was the liberals who were accused of creating a “propaganda and distorted” impression of what was happening in Crimea and in Ukraine. Most of the accusations were heard against the central Russian channels. And the illegitimate current government of Kiev fully agreed in its dissatisfaction with the picture and interpretation of the position of the Russian liberals, after which she tried to “turn off” the four leading Russian channels throughout Ukraine.

But the citizens of Russia expressed a completely different view on the objectivity of the leading TV channels of their country. 39% of respondents were satisfied with the whole television, 10% - with the First Channel, Russia 1 - 7%, NTV - 4%, Russia 24 - 3%. The central channels entirely called 3%. But “Rain”, RBC and REN TV, which provide information in a pro-Western key, which overnight became anti-Russian because of the Crimean crisis, were mentioned only in 1% of respondents.

For comparison, only 17% are satisfied with the objectivity of the Internet, that is, three times less than TV! But it is precisely the “network” that traditionally is the “stronghold” of the opposition and the means of conveying the necessary information for the West - it’s not by chance that in Turkey, which doesn’t want Maidan at home, they are already turning off Twitter.

But we see that the Russians have serious complaints about the objectivity of the Internet. Newspapers, on the whole, turned out to be outside the attention of people in a furious pursuit of news from Ukraine and the Crimea, which changed almost every minute.

Therefore, only 8% were satisfied with the print media and their objectivity, and the only newspaper, the name of which appeared as a result, became “AIF” with a figure of 1%. Radio gained a total of 5% objectivity, while Ekho Moskvy called the same 1% of respondents as such.

As a result, at the level of statistical error were all the liberal TV channels and the main radio band of anti-state forces, which, due to a misunderstanding, bears the name of the capital of Russia and distributes echoes of completely different overseas capitals.

The following question is also very important, which helps us understand the dynamics of the assessment by citizens of a country of media activities. It sounded like this: “Do you think that 2-3 a year ago, the Russian media covered the events more objectively or less objectively than today? Or has nothing changed in this regard? ”

The bottom line is that 22% said that it was more objective, 18% did it less objectively, and 46% did not see the difference with 14%, which is probably why they did not find what to answer. As they say - the art of the media is deeply indebted to the people.

A similar question regarding the events of 30-year-old, that is, the Soviet media, gave the following result: 40% believe that then the media were less objective, 19% more objective, 11% sure that nothing has changed, and almost every third ( 30%) did not find the answer to the question.
I think that these particular people either did not live at that time, or were then children, and therefore they can neither appreciate nor answer ...

The number of those who believe that journalists working on federal TV channels can criticize Russian authorities was 60%, having slightly decreased over the year from 64%. At the same time, the number of people who believe that such criticism should not take place has increased - from 21% to 27%.

However, it seems to me that this question was formulated incorrectly, because the word “criticism” is too vague. Especially against the background of the situation in the Crimea and Ukraine.

However, the question of how more media people trust, they give a clear answer. And it sounds a complete discord with the liberal mantras that we have heard for two decades.

The media must be independent, otherwise, they say, they can not really reflect reality. But people think differently: only 16% of respondents trust more than non-state media, 62% - state-owned, and every fifth has not found anything to say (21%). Thus, trust in the state-owned media is almost four times higher.

The second block of FOM questions related to journalism assessments. But the results, in my opinion, became another illustration of the picture that emerged from the analysis of assessments given by Russian citizens to the mass media. “What, in your opinion, should a journalist be in order for you to call him a professional?” Was the question.

How do you think, how many respondents answered that a journalist should be “independent”? Total 4%. True, the fact that the journalist should be a “patriot” was said even less - only 1%. The leader of the answers is an option that speaks about the desire for justice: “Honest, truthful, objective, fair” (57% in one form or another).

“In your opinion, has the level of professionalism of Russian journalists increased lately, decreased, or generally not changed?” Rose, believe 54% of respondents. 25% are sure that it has not changed, 7% - which has decreased.

When asked about respect for journalists in the society, 69% responded that they are respected, and only 17% think that they are not. At the request to name specific names of respected journalists, whose opinion is authoritative, the following picture came out: Solovyov (13%), Kiselev (8%), Posner (6%), A. Mamontov (6%), S. Brilev (3%), A. Pimanov (2%), A. Malakhov (2%), A. Karaulov (2%) and also 12 surnames who have typed in 1%. At the same time, the answer “no such” collected whole 4%.

The conclusions suggest the following: in our society there is a traditional respect for journalists. But it rather refers to the whole profession, rather than to individuals. And only four (!), Only four journalists were able to gain a percentage of respect for themselves and their work more than, in essence, meaning, as in elections, the result “against all” - “no such” (4%).

It is curious that from the first four most reputable journalists of Russia only one Vladimir Pozner can be referred to liberals “in pure form”. And two - Yevgeny Kiselev and Arkady Mamontov - are the subject of burning hatred of "independent media" and "independent journalists." Those who themselves either did not gain prestige and respect, or have much less of it.
By the way, judging by the sanctions imposed against Kiselev and the war of our "British partners" addressed to Mamontov after his film about caches in stones, Russia's geopolitical opponents do not like them as much as the liberal public inside our country. And what is most surprising is that it is absolutely not surprising.

Remember where we started our review? They are so desperately and selflessly protecting ... no, not freedom of speech, but the interests of another state. Or a whole group of states. So it is, and the results of surveys conducted by the Public Opinion Foundation convincingly confirm this.

And finally, journalists, respondents believe, have the opportunity to express their opinion “as much as necessary” (65%) or even “too much” (13%). So, “crocodile tears” about “strangling freedom of speech” are not necessary.

“Do you think that lately there have been more opportunities for journalists to express their opinions freely, has less or nothing changed?” Russian citizens are asked.

And only 8% today (10% in 2012) say that there are fewer opportunities. 32% (in 2012-m - 37%) believe that there is no change for the worse. But the number of people sure that journalists have more opportunities to express their opinions increased from 34% in 2012 to 47% in 2014!

You can write, you can talk, you can express your point of view. It’s not necessary to lie, it’s not necessary to push through what other states need under the guise of an “independent” opinion. Even if very strong and influential. The people of Russia love their journalists, he respects their work.

      I don't know why you called our media a federal "stench", but your position is surprisingly similar to that of our media. like Dozhd, Novaya Gazeta, swamps, when they were still blathering (now they were hiding). Now comrades from the most honest media, controlled by, for example, Euro-fascists or the Balts, agree with you .... I respect, of course, your opinion, but I wonder why your opinion is so consonant with them? Are you yourself aware of this unity? You understand. that the cries of Putin's corrupt media were very actively promoted by other media ... you know. whose? :)))
      To be honest, I don’t like journalists, especially because even the events in which I personally participated and personally told them, they managed to misinterpret them in such a way that they didn’t stop, even fall ... moreover, the distortion of information did not affect either the political coloring and for nothing else ... the distortions didn’t even make the report more interesting - to the question of which Allah - they mumbled in response - they say. thought. that it will be better .... ugh ...

      I am well acquainted with the principles of the work of journalists, talked, and there are friends among the bottom .... yes, there are tasks, of course - editing, sometimes dictatorship, there is ordering - so all the media in all countries of the world sin this ... our non-federal media in this regard are much worse - they are. like the Western media under total control - a step to the right - a step to the left is a putinoid ... :))). And if you even know something about journalism, you cannot but know this ...
      Nevertheless, it is full of journalists in the federal media that are very talented and absolutely honest. What do you, for example, have against the Komsomol Ulyana Skobeida, or, for example, Steshin, Meshkov, Kots? Yes, there are a lot of them .... So no, you have to go crazy through the lip - all the journalists of the federal stench are corrupt and work under dictation ...

      Exactly. Several years ago I met a girl, she had previously studied at the Faculty of Journalism in one of the universities, then she quit, and when asked why she quit, because it’s an interesting profession, she answered - “I don’t want to be a whore who is not just sold for money, but also to others for money hangs noodles ". So, alas, the media are really very corrupt, but do not forget that there are truly honest journalists.

    The most important thing that we have today is the freedom to choose a source of information. I looked at Russia 24, I thought, looked at Euronews. Compare. I went online - watched the BBC, American channels. Fortunately, the post-Soviet school gave a normal knowledge of languages. If you want the opinion of the people, go down to your grandmothers at the entrance. Who cares, he will always find how to compose an objective picture of the world.

    But I'm interested in something else - if the media is a mirror of society, then what is a mirror of the media?
    Mirror mirror is a fractal, mesmerizing, but no more. To get something useful from the Internet, you need to shovel a bunch of manure without being distracted by pop-up spam and "cats", and this is "lazy" - there is a box that "objectively" will show everything that we want to know after a hard day. sad So they trust the box as a native and main "table decoration" (postman Pechkin). However, as I have been convinced many times, our media speaks on behalf of Moscow and for Moscow. The Urals, for the most part, do not listen to this "opinion" - they have their own head on their shoulders, which I am very happy about. We do not believe the box.

    They defend so desperately and selflessly ... no, not freedom of speech, but the interests of another state.

    When the protection of the interests of another state to the detriment of its own, in specific media is not an "accident", but a SYSTEM, then it is necessary to close these media outlets, and check the employees for "lice", and if the facts of work ordered by an enemy country are proved, send them to forced labor no further than Siberia, the fall is beneficial to society.

    All media outlets pursue someone’s information policy. They live it. The question is that, having access to media of various orientations, Homo Sapiens himself will determine what is true and what is true. The problem is the availability of access to bipolar information and the presence of gray matter in an amount capable of transmitting nerve impulses. Well, even if you cut the gyrus - it will be generally good!
    Simply put. a person decides for himself from the information received what is closer to his soul. It is important that the amount of information received is sufficient, versatile, so that the brain does not stupidly give the command "Of course, Heil!"
    Otherwise, we, like rats, will follow one pipe. (If anything, an old German fairy tale).

      The Ukrainians were fed, fed "the truth-womb" in the American and gay European way, and now they already have a Bander - a hero, and a fascist, it seems that it is no longer an ENEMY, but a FRIEND ...
      So, if you POISE your consciousness for a long time, then IT WILL STOP THINKING. Provocateurs from the media should be deprived of citizenship, let them "preach" in the country of OWNERS-CUSTOMERS.

      The conversation is about the Russian media.
      No one allows the media to lie and there is a court for this.
      But, if the media, in the height of hostilities, conveys not the point of view of its government, but the propaganda of the enemy side, it falls under a completely different article, an article about the spread of enemy propaganda on its territory during the war. Look at the Western media, which spread lies about the Russian attack on Georgia, as they call it now - the "five-day war"!
      And "Echo of Moscow" came out dry!
      We need to know for whose money these media exist.

      Russian President Vladimir Putin intends to run for president of Ukraine in the elections to be held on May 25. He stated this at a press conference in the Kremlin.

      "I plan to run for the presidency of Ukraine," Putin said.

      The Russian president noted that he plans to personally register as candidates for the top position of the state of Ukraine and make a security deposit in the amount of 2,5 million hryvnia on Monday.

      “Anticipating the question of whether I have the right to run for president in accordance with Ukrainian law, I answer: I have. a dictionary and a translator. Therefore, there should not be any legal issues regarding my nomination for the presidency of Ukraine, "Vladimir Putin said.

      According to the election program, the President of the Russian Federation said that no other candidate would be able to compete with him. In particular, Putin named the key points of his program:

      - Return of Crimea to Ukraine;
      - Reducing gas prices to the level of 134,25 dollars per thousand cubic meters.
      - The trial of those responsible for the massacres of people during the Euromaidan.

      Immediately after the press conference of Vladimir Putin, a number of Russian media published the results of a sociological survey conducted in Ukraine last week. According to this opinion poll, in the presidential elections in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin is gaining 51% in the first round. laughing

    I’m doing a nefig here (I didn’t go to work) and wandered around other online media. After all, TopWar is the media, if I’m not mistaken?
    So toothless and more politically correct than our site, except that the site of an iPhone. Terrible debate over the insignificant aspects of the problems. (I repeat once again for our site: the problems are very important, but their aspects proposed for discussion do not affect the problems themselves.)
    This comment does not apply to the policy of our president, the country - only to the site administration.
    Soon we will be forbidden to call a Negro a Negro (remember "Brother"). African American only. Khokhla - Khokhlom - has already been banned. Just like a Jew - a Jew (see the journalism of 1900-1915).
    I propose to administrators to prohibit Ukrainians from calling Russians "yami" in Kiev.
    Are your arms short?
    But here, on the site, there are even enough fingers. Courage also depends on the location of the daredevil. And does he have a club in his hands. Guys, do not you think that you went to the second round? Who understood - well done.

    Well, for example, on a watch in the tundra, morning begins with "Mayak", in the evening "ORT", Russia1 ", NTV. When at home on weekends it is time that evening from 19.00 NTV and then in turn TVC, Russia , ORT, RBC and, as they say, “those who have ears, let them hear.” It’s interesting how the common topics are voiced by different channels, where the accents are placed, and then the head is not in order to be in it.

    "Independent" media does not exist in nature and this is a fact that cannot be refuted. That's just what a journalist depends on: the wallet of a foreign sponsor, a local tycoon (working for a foreign sponsor), a local head of the media (working for a foreign sponsor), the government (working for a foreign sponsor)? After the failure of the State Emergency Committee and until recently it was so, with a few exceptions - the whole people was subjected to massive zombie attacks, and the state almost ceased to exist - a miracle could be said, I would never have believed that Yeltsin would be involved in this miracle chance, but this is also a fact. And yet it would be right for those who write for us to be not only professionals, but patriots.

    Assuming that the article as well as the survey are correct, we can pull the following out of it:
    - Most people 88% receive news from TV. Resting, or just looking at the box
    - Some in the regions have their own channels. Others either do not, or do not have prime time, or they are not interesting.
    - almost 17% old-fashioned
    - if there is time for the TV, then it will not be enough for the Internet. Respondents on the Internet watch the news when at work and when at home. The number of those who advanced slightly increased, maybe there is a small% who did not want to seem up-to-date.
    - The confidence of the information was demonstrated by the older generation, due to the assessment of information from a position of experience, and that it does not greatly affect their lives.
    - all other assessments represent the quality of information, methods for assessing it, approaches to objectivity, etc.

    Conclusion: people are busy with life, information is interesting to people from the point of view of its impact on life, so hysteria can be subjected only to a small% of the population who are not very busy, surf the Internet, have no experience, and really want to be fashionable. The reasons for the failure of Swamp are obvious

        Not necessary. Part of the mail looks at work, at the same time watching the news. A part of the Internet has a home, watches it periodically, a part of the Internet does not have a home at all, or is, but it’s very expensive. For exact numbers there should have been a survey in that direction. laughing And the "ch.e.r.o.v.o" is different for everyone. The only thing that unites is the lack of a systematic approach, the desire to quickly and for free.

    Therefore, only 8% were satisfied with the print media and their objectivity.

    Objectivity is difficult to assess. It all depends on the presentation of the material. For example, the Pope flew to Paris on a visit. Newspapers came to him right at the plane's ladder with questions. Their first question was: - Tell me, how do you feel about Parisian brothels? - Are there brothels in Paris? Dad asked. The next day, all the Parisian newspapers were full of headlines on the front pages: “The first question of the Pope on French soil was:“ Are there brothels in Paris? ”The Pope's first question, first, about brothels?
