The end of communist rule in the Soviet Union brought with it a
brave new world of media and commerce. Formerly state-owned
enterprises were transformed, often through private ownership, and
new corporations sprung up overnight to take advantage of the new
atmosphere of freedom. Until now, most research on media and news
production in Russia has focused on the scope of government control
and comparisons with the communist era. However, extra-governmental
controls and the challenges of operating in a newly capitalist
environment have been just as important -- if not more so -- in the
formation of the new media climate. Filling the gap in the
literature, this book examines the various agents who 'make' the
news, and discusses the fierce struggle among the various agents of
power involved. Drawing on existing theories and scholarship, the
book provides a wealth of detail on the actual daily practices of
news production in Russia. Original research is combined with
compelling first-hand accounts of news production and dissemination
to provide an incisive look at the issues and power structures
Russian journalists face on a daily basis.
