U Rusiji nema krize!


Tekst u Transitions Online govori o medijskom prikrivanju ekonomske krize koja se iz svetskih okvira prelila i na Rusiju:
There is a mantra these days, repeated diligently by Russian television: "The Russian authorities have taken all necessary measures to ensure that the global financial crisis does not produce a strong negative effect on the social situation in our country," or "The situation is under control."

U tu sfrhu, neke reči su poželjne, a druge se moraju izbegavati:

Journalists working for the state-controlled media admit in Internet forums that whole lists of words and expressions have been banned for use on Russian television, including "panic," "plummeting shares and markets," "market collapse," "market meltdown," "the bottom has dropped out of the market," and "record plunge." Euphemisms like "decrease" are used instead.

(Naslovna strana na slici je sa početka 1990. godine).

Kod nas direktna cenzura više nije aktuelna, ali se ponekad postiže sličan efekat davanjem prevelikog prostora zvaničnicima, a premalo stručnjacima. Ili kad zvanični organi pokušavaju da odgovornost za eventualnu krizu prenesu sa sebe na one koji ekonomsku situaciju analiziraju.
