What happened to journalism?

84
All the way, since the beginning of the events on the Independence Square in November of 2013, I was interested in the idea of ​​a too noticeable difference in the coverage of what is happening in Kiev by the mass media. And then in Ukraine as a whole.


It is not a secret for anyone today that we, mere mortals, learn about almost everything that happens in the world from the media, of which there are not so many types: print publications, television and radio, the Internet.

And so it seemed that it was easier to comment on the protest actions in the center of Kiev, to clarify, so to speak, the motives that brought the residents of the capital of Ukraine and the cities and towns from Uzhgorod to Donetsk to Sumy 2.0, from Sumy to Simferopol.

But already at this, the initial stage, a serious discrepancy of the coverage of events began. That is, there was a division of the inhabitants of Ukraine into supporters of Maidan and anti-Maidan. Moreover, it was noticeable that the former are larger in terms of quantity than the latter.

Without going into the analysis of the reasons that led first to the Maidan, and then to human deaths that reached the peak of 20 and 21 in February of 2014, as well as to the question of the legitimacy of the latter-day Kiev leadership, nevertheless, you begin to think that the sacrifices made on the way to the emergence of “European democracy”, they turned out to be sacred: the fighters burnt alive “Berkut” and the Ukrainian Air Force became a prologue to future tragedies.

The main thing. How did it happen that the seriously wounded civil servants who defended the buildings of the state complex of the Ukrainian government, who fell into oblivion into the hands of aggressive attackers, were declared prisoners of war without any constraint or remorse?

As advocates of freedom and democratic values, the fight against corruption, human rights activists could come to power under the flags and slogans of ultra-nationalists, while acting with methods that are contrary to their own statements and the Constitution and the Criminal Code?

How did the people of Kiev and the people of Kiev bring the pavement to the Right Sector fighters and Maidan hundreds, help to pour gasoline into bottles, supply home supplies for those who literally killed compatriots who were just dressed differently and standing on the other side of the barricade?

Then I did not find an answer for myself.

And then the horror came ...

The Ukrainian army, consisting of citizens of Ukraine, yesterday forgotten and demoralized, abandoned and impoverished, watched the lawlessness of national radicals in lack of will, suddenly remembered that it was obliged to protect someone. Only she did not remember - whose people and from whom. And it did not become clear to whom this army swore. And here Mordor and Saruman come to mind. No more.

Because the army cannot destroy its people, the citizens of their country, only because these citizens have a different opinion about the group of people who came to power, who call themselves the leadership of this country. Because the task of the army is to protect the state and the people living in this state from external aggression, from foreign encroachment.

But the junta decided otherwise. And today the civil war in the Donbass is a fact accomplished, a fact, sadly painful.

And suddenly there were good people. From there. From the countries advocating democracy, tolerance for LGBT communities, supporters of juvenile justice and children's Barnevar-Gestapo. From there, where it is considered that the notorious freedom of speech is observed only there, to the west of the present lands of Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. Where has become a popular occupation of compiling ratings of countries in which human rights are respected, and in which not so much. Of those countries where human life is declared the highest value. Especially if this life belongs to supporters of sexual minorities.

Unfortunately, the value of human life in Ukraine was devalued on Maidan. It was there, on the Square of Nezalezhnosti, that it turned out that the lives of the Berkutovtsy and employees of the explosives are suitable only for kindling the internal conflict. It is intraterritorial, not domestic. Since after 21.02.2014 Ukraine has ceased to exist as a state. The state can not allow such a tragedy as Odessa Khatyn. Such even in today's Somalia is difficult to imagine. But I recall Guatemala with its 80 's death squads of the last century.

It was the tragedy in Odessa, when supporters of federalization, without being embarrassed, and in addition shooting on webcams online, killed, maimed, burned alive, turned out to be the marker when the goals and methods of the Kiev junta became finally clear.

The deadly drama in the House of Trade Unions was left without proper attention of the “progressive” society, its mass media. Only "aggressive" Russia called what happened with its name. That Russia, which is defamed in foreign editions (and not only in foreign ones), starting with the pre-Olympic Sochi. That Russia, which, in fact, brought the Crimea out of the fatal blow of the supporters of "united Ukraine".

Today, the peak of defamation on the pages of the Western media is overwhelming beyond reason. "Curved mirror" display of reality works in the afterburner mode. But this paradox has an explanation.

Honest journalism today is not in high esteem. Honest journalism is poorly paid, since the circulation of publications, and, consequently, income, depends on the amount of advertising placed on the pages and on the air of the media. Well, and from the "fried" facts, mostly yellow.

Being honest today is dangerous. Historywhat happened to the editor-in-chief of the Guardian, is a confirmation of this. British secret services conducted a punitive action, and as a result, the creator of "WikiLeaks" Julian Assange was in "civil self-incrimination" in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. And not a single “progressive” publication no longer wants to be accused of espionage.

But this with the “workers of the pen” did not happen today or immediately.

It all started long before 11.09.2001. And the tragedy with the "Islamic terrorists" happened exactly when it was required. And the coverage of the “terrorist attack” was carried out precisely by those TV channels that were assigned a special role. And somehow “accidentally” it turned out that the main characters on Fox News, NBC, CNN and other major US TV channels were relatives or “close people” from the State Department, the CIA and the FBI, the NSA in the end.

As a result, after the adoption of "draconian laws" in the name of ensuring the safety of citizens of the United States and the country as a whole, honest journalism has moved into the category of extreme sports. And “right” journalism “surfaced”, which debuted much earlier, in Yugoslavia in 1992. And in the future, only "gained weight."

The process of covering the events in South Ossetia in August of 2008 brought its poisonous fruit. The experience of “fair presentation of facts” on the territory of the former USSR was tested. Customer orders were made.

Since the USA has recently declared one or another territory of the globe “a zone of its vital interests,” it is not surprising that Ukraine has entered this zone today. The verb "got" can and should be read in the literal and figurative sense. Like the word "zone".

The only thing that is puzzling is the question of the selectivity of ensuring the safety of citizens on the territory of Ukraine. Well, with those Americans who guard the embassy in Kiev, everything is clear - the service. But with those who "rented" an entire floor in the Office of the SBU - somehow not quite. Whether on a guided tour, or a residence permit, or whether refugees were forced. One confuses - the head of the CIA arrives in Kiev as a job. And they say that the door to the Security Service of Ukraine opens, as they say, "from the foot." But there everything is correct. And in general - pro-American Ukrainians do not exist in nature.

But now the citizens of Ukraine are divided into correct and not very. Not very much - these are not very sorry. It is not a pity to burn on Independence and in the House of Trade Unions; it is not a pity to shoot from the PKT, when these not-so-right residents block the road with the right people from the National Guard, Right Sector and Self-Defense Forces in the whole village. To speed up and simplify the process (so that the sight did not get off because of trembling hands), the wrong citizens were called pro-Russian terrorists. Although Minister in. British affairs suggested that it was even simpler - like “why get dirty, let's call Russian - it's easier and clearer ...” And you shouldn’t bother with test tubes with “white powder” at the parliament session. The statements made by Obama, Kerry, Merkel, Ashton and other representatives and leaders of countries and organizations of the “free world” do not differ in special delights ...

When state leaders openly and purposefully bursh (do not lie, namely, burst) into the microphones and cameras of the "right journalists" of leading news agencies and companies, when the "mouthpieces of truth" and "impartial journalism" spread this dangerous mix of lies and schizophrenic nonsense and on the air of their publications as true truth, the names Hemingueu and Saint-Exupery are asked to be canonized. And the subtitles of many western publications lack the slogan “Long live the dictatorship of the union of the workers of the pen and the sword!”, “Imperialists of all countries, unite!” The propaganda minister of the Third Reich can be pleased - his students have surpassed their guru.

The printed word today will be stronger than any other ammunition. Today, an "honest journalist" can be equated with a saboteur. Today, popular Internet publications, newspapers and television channels are more effective than the armies of some European countries ...

In the Middle Ages, in the era of the beginning of mass printing, the church declared that “the devil is contained in printing ink” ...

The time has passed. And the expression “In many knowledge many sorrows” can be interpreted in a completely different perspective. And God forbid, that would not be in the apocalyptic ...

PS I love to read and re-read the books of S. Lukyanenko. I can not call him a visionary, but the plots of his “Fake Mirrors”, “Stars - Cold Toys” come to our life ...

      In the sixties of the last century, a drawing was printed in "Crocodile", where two Western correspondents look at the construction of houses in the USSR. Their dialo:
      - I have never seen such a pace of housing construction.
      - I'm afraid our readers will not see either

      So that nothing is new under the moon

        Richard Nixon invited Brezhnev for a morning run. Well, of course, he overtook grandfather. And this, you know, is apolitical. Therefore, in the morning in ITAR TASS the following message appeared:

        "During the friendly cross-country race, the General Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee finished second. The American President came to the finish line penultimate ..."

        But now, all the television newspapers are in the hands of just these very comrades! And, if there is no true information, then it is beneficial for them! The construction of the Khazar Khaganate is ongoing on the lands of Ukraine, which has never become a country. And no media will truly cover what is being done by fellow tribesmen of Firtash and Kolomoisky, Yatsenyuk and Timosheko.

      Nothing happened, the dark forces immediately put on journalism, as an instrument for shaping public opinion, this was the case in the Crimean War, it was so at the beginning of the XNUMXth century, it is now. Only media opportunities are changing from newspapers to television and the internet.

        It's very possible. Euronews has already commented that the "opponents of the" referendum "were not allowed" to express their opinion, "they were threatened and they were very afraid" .... Apparently, these journalists clung to 25-30% of those who did not appear for the referendum, among those who had the right to do so. So, without understanding, they suggested and voiced ... But 70-80% of those who arrived, they are not impressed. Well, and the rest of the assessments of the referendum held by them are solid "democratic negative".
        I don’t want to discuss the opinion of this pseudo-free press of official Kiev and the West, there is only a lie, bile, anger ...

      Yes, but a couple of months ago this would not have happened. But the Kiev junta did the impossible. In such a short time, she was able to set up so many ordinary people against herself that she was only happy. Keep it up! Soon you will be completely alone.

      The results of the referendum in Donetsk

      More recently, we (and I personally) said that in the cities of the southeast there are too few protesters against the Kiev junta, that the bulk of the people are "moyahataskraischiki". To be honest, I doubted about the results of the referendum (I thought few people would vote). However, as we can see, the people, like in Crimea, said their word at the right time. It is a pity that there were no such organizers in other regions as in Donetsk and Lugansk. And the people are the people, they need a competent organization and bold organizers. Donetsk and Lugansk are great! Now - do not mean ... what has been achieved, to act! And the rest of the southeast - either let it pull up, or let it "jump" later!

      THE SPETSKOR OF "NEW NEWSPAPER" LOST IN UKRAINE RELEASED WITH THE EDITORIAL

      12 May 2014 | 14: 21
      "Special correspondent of Novaya Gazeta, Pavel Kanygin, has contacted the editorial office and is waiting for a meeting with colleagues. All other news will be on his return to the editorial office," the message says, Interfax reports.
      Earlier it was reported that the journalist was abducted in the Donetsk region. This was reported by his colleagues. Local self-defense claims that a Novaya Gazeta correspondent has been detained at one of the checkpoints in Artemovsk.
      With a request for help to friends Kanygin turned at night. As Ilya Azar, a correspondent for the site of the Echo of Moscow, wrote on Twitter, the journalist sent an SMS message in which he told about the incident. Kanygin was detained in Artyomovsk, taken to Slavyansk, received a ransom of one thousand dollars for him and promised to release him, but then the connection with the Novaya correspondent was lost, Azar points out. The Ukrainian journalist Mustafa Nayyem, in turn, publishes a correspondence with Kanygin, in which he claims that 30 of thousands of dollars is required for his release and that the abductors take his phone from him. Another colleague of the missing special correspondent of Novaya Gazeta, photographer Pyotr Shelomovsky, points out that they decided to detain Kanygin after his publication on Facebook. He spent the past day in the Donetsk region, covering the so-called referendum.
      In the social network, Kanygin drew attention to shortcomings in his organization and reported on the disappearance of the mayor of Artemovsk, who opposed the vote on the status of the region. Authorities in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic say they are not aware of the abduction of a Russian journalist. Miroslav Rudenko, co-chair of her government, said in an interview with Interfax: “Demanding a ransom is not our methods. Most likely, these are either provocateurs or just bandits from the high road. ” But Artyomovsk’s self-defense confirms the detention of Kanygin. The separatists say that the Novaya Gazeta correspondent is still at one of the checkpoints. They decided to isolate Kanygin, because he did not show special accreditation and had with him - quote from RIA Novosti - “negative materials against the Donetsk People’s Republic”. The Union of Russian Journalists has promised to do everything possible to free the correspondent. This was told to Echo by its chairman Vsevolod Bogdanov.
      The editors of the "New" incident with its special correspondent does not comment. On her website it is indicated that until Kanygin returns to Moscow, the publication will not speak out about this. A few minutes ago, however, a message appeared on Novaya Gazeta’s twitter that the journalist had contacted. No further details are provided here.
      This is not the first case of the disappearance of journalists in the south-east of Ukraine. Both local and foreign media claimed the abduction of their employees, the fate of some of them is still unknown.

    I read 48 posts, no longer able! Squeeze:
    46th Russia is to blame for everything (this is not new); 2-to blame EVERYTHING except Ukraine!
    34-Let Russia take them, all the same, they will die of hunger there! 11-let Russia take them with all the other "quilted jackets", and we will live fine in Europe! 2-kill everyone from the "grads", and give the territory to Russia!
    That is, in the bosphere of Ukraine, people rejoice at the collapse of the country !!!!! And I still accused the Yusovites of the collapse of the country !!
    A similar attitude to my country-clumsy in my head! Even I am glad on one side of the collapse of Ukraine (RUSSIA is growing in territory), BUT ALSO THE WEEPING IN UKRAINE — THEY ARE VISITS OF THE BROTHERS! And here is JOY on the death of the country! It is unclear ...... .

    Crimea, in fact, was removed from under a terrible tragedy, the victims of which would have amounted to hundreds of thousands.
    Everything would have been done just like in Odessa: a heated rally of the Tatars, some snipers or mummers provocateurs are firing, they are just like in Russia killing Russians ...
    But in Odessa, such a provocation did not receive further development (there are still only one people).
    But in the Crimea, after this, a real war would begin with the participation of Al-Qaeda and other charms of religious and national hatred.
    And all this would happen against the backdrop of inaction and incitement to the official Kiev authorities and the additional participation of the Bandera.
    Horror what could have happened if the referendum had not been held in time, when the main criminal forces of the junta (snipers and provocateurs) were still concentrated in Kiev.

    Each media has its own owners, who urge to look for negativity in foreign countries. And he is everywhere, this is not a secret.
    But I don’t remember such a massive insolent lie as now. The impression is that what drives journalists is not professional debt, not money, but just animal fear.
    And about the falsifications, distortions and conclusions - the West has enormous experience.
    Ilf and Petrov also wrote in their "Golden Calf" about a Western journalist who admired the achievements of the USSR on 300 pages of his review, and wrote on page 301 that it was for this reason that the USSR should be destroyed and as soon as possible.

    The Russian media, too, cannot be called a ray of truth amidst the darkness of lies. Not to mention all sorts of echoes, rains, etc. ntv. Take the good news channel Russia-24, for example. Repeatedly repeated the same plots. Instead of operative reports with a convincing video illustration of the event, the talking heads of correspondents often repeat ridiculous rumors and inventions. The same video out of place accompanies different events. Who is it for? One word is the second most ancient - there are national differences, but the basis is common

      And you remember how our media covered the war in Chechnya.
      What now? Journalists of Russian television channels with a real risk to their life convey to us and not only to us the truth about what is happening in Ukraine. TV channels are experiencing an acute shortage of personnel, because many have already blocked entry to Ukraine. I read somewhere that so many journalists were awarded for their work during the Crimean events. I have nothing to reproach our media for now. This is a fairly effective tool for information warfare. Of course, the lying choir of the Westerners has not yet been shouted to us, but what is being done is commendable.

    Now I was looking at the chronicle of events in Odessa, from April to May 11 of this year, it was scary, insulting to tears, it was insulting that Odessa was once a hero city, a city of humor and fun became so gloomy, frightening and soulless, and it became not only from the invasion of the brown plague of our time, and also from cowardice, lowland and venality of modern man in Ukraine .....
    You can minus for my opinion, but pay attention that 10 days have passed since the tragedy in the city, there is no revenge, no decisiveness in actions, there is NOTHING, there is only lamb complaisance, this is NOT SLAVE in spirit, determination and actions, this is what the victorious people turned into, these are slaves, servants of New Europe, they were replaced by ideals and heroes, they were subjected to mass assimilation for themselves, that is, for the values ​​of Europe. Who are they? Why are they? What are they for? The percentage that went peacefully to defend their rights is broken, burned, demoralized, but what percentage is less than 2% of the population of the hero city. Such a conclusion is not our people anymore, our people are not our history ... And now, counting on justice and mass protests in Odessa is simply trite. Maybe when the years pass, something will change, but not now. And those who want to remain a Slav must be offered to move to Russia.

    But at the local level - ask anyone, and they will tell you that our local press is just as corrupt as the West. I will tell you more. In Amer’s detective stories, I noticed that every mayor of any town comes to the post after the election - with his sheriff or the police chief there. At US - with its pocket editor. And before you sing hosanna to the domestic press - and not weak, about you to overcome this domestic tendency? The journalist himself. For the third time in his career, he left this profession. I was honestly warned that if I have a conscience, I will do it repeatedly. I can’t call myself a model of honesty. But I can’t be silent when an entire city, for the sake of industrialists, is transformed from a port paradise - to a shift camp of oil workers. Whatever they sang to me about the effectiveness of modern methods of refining petroleum products - I heard the opinions of people who consider themselves experts in this field. They tried this purified water at exhibitions - there is the entire periodic table. Yes, I understand that the problem cannot be solved: diversification of oil trading vectors and all that. BUT YOU DON'T LYE LYE AT THEN. And don't shut up the press. So say: if funds allow, take the children out of here. Whoever is not allowed - increase health insurance. They are ours, Russian children!

    No need to build illusions. Classical journalism died long ago with the advent of the era of information warfare. Every Western journalist is a soldier in this war and writes only what is required for the conduct of hostilities. A step to the left, a step to the right and you are excommunicated from the profession. Free-thinking and some liberties are forgivable only for "stars" or provincial publications, which few people pay attention to. To cover the general line, the term "editorial policy" was coined. You can write whatever you want, for that and democracy and freedom of the press, but they will publish only what corresponds to this policy and there is no one to complain to. You will be advised to go where your thoughts are divided and this is not a violation of democratic freedoms. The point is only that this policy is prescribed for almost all leading Western publications and proceeds, as it were, from one center. And this, within certain limits, does not depend on the host country and the party affiliation of the publication.

    From Wikipedia: Journalism - updating the worldview of social groups by means of selecting facts, ratings and comments that are topical and significant at this time.

    Journalism also means the practice of collecting, interpreting information about the events, topics and trends of modern life, its presentation in various genres and forms, and its subsequent dissemination to a mass audience.
    In the modern world, it is "information interpretation" that is becoming the main feature of this profession. And there is no getting away from it. And if so, it is absolutely necessary to create a new structure in our country. You can call it whatever you like, even the "Ministry of Truth". The main task of this structure should be to convey the truth in our interpretation to every inhabitant of the planet. RT is a drop in the ocean, but look how she gets them! Our country is constantly making excuses in hindsight, and these are huge losses. Remember the quote: "He who owns the information owns the world" ... But it does not say that the owner of the information should sit on it with his butt. Let's share with the world! And if the available information is not enough, we will add our own. IN OUR INTERPRETATION.

    Come on there. Journalists are the same soldiers on the battlefield in the information war. No one will release a soldier on the battlefield who will shoot at his own. So the country's task is to constantly build up and develop the means of war, not only real. but also informational. The USSR did not fall apart from bombs and missiles. He was ruined in particular by the information war and the lack of sane opposition to it.

The powerful have come up with. Look at what the institutions of power have turned into the usa. Democratic media is also gone, unfortunately. Everything is aimed at serving the authorities, anyone, we see this in Ukraine. European media? I think so, they begin to slowly wake up. Blitz krieg in Ukraine did not work. Since February, a lot of water has flowed. The press began to slowly cover events.
