PETER KIRIAN TELLS ABOUT TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE NATIONAL MEDIA LANDSCAPE
Peter Kirian, CROS Director for Media Projects published an opinion article on Forbes.ru about the changes in the media landscape of Russia and how the society is getting used to live with two information agendas: the official one and personal one.
The Russian public has established a clear demand for “humane” news. This conclusion was made by CROS experts during their research project the “National Index of Anxieties”. “People ignore the unemotional content of the news. Common, in some sense ‘household’ topics should appear between reports about supersonic rockets and geopolitical challenges in the newscasts and talk shows alike. The issue of growing food prices confirms that these topics still make it in the news, be it thanks to or against the mass media’s information policy,” Peter Kirian says.
