Russia: “Cut-and-Paste” Journalism

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Media & Journalism

Eagle and the Bear writes [1] about “cut-and-paste” TV journalism in Russia: “Over the course of dinner tonight, no less than two stories on the Vesti television news came directly from a separate print source. Meaning they literally filmed the two print articles — one a Rossiiskaya Gazeta article about handling the crisis and the other a Der Spiegel article about the Georgian government’s actions in the lead-up to the conflict — and read them aloud, occasionally highlighting or zooming in on parts of the text.”
