Russia needs an integral information space and the work to bring it about is already in progress
Russia needs an integral information space and the work to bring it about is already in progress, Federation Council (upper house) Speaker Sergei Mironov said at a meeting with the editors of regional mass media. He also remarked that the state must have a clearly formulated information policy. Mironov urged a balance of “good and bad news” in the media. In his opinion currently there is a "heavy bad news bias." “After seeing some TV programs you just don’t want to go on living,” the Federation Council speaker said. He emphatically opposed the introduction of any censorship on television, but at the same time contemplated the possibility of public control of television programs. “No body of power should have the right to run television programs. Only the public is in the position of expressing its opinion of their value and ethical aspects,” Mironov said. He recalled his proposal for creating observer councils at television channels, adding he hoped that “the Public Chamber will give thought to this.”
