Of course, there is some deviation towards a critical attitude towards the authorities. But in general, information can be gleaned. Although they stupidly do not have enough money for insider trading and no one particularly opens doors for them - they are afraid of instructions from above. In general, it must be said that real information media cannot be found in the daytime with fire. And propaganda does not provide concentrated information, but divides one to ten. This is only good for vegetables.

Answer 2

For me - no. Everything is quite simple - if it is good, from the point of view of Ekho Moskvy, then it is with them, but if it is bad, then it is not just bad, but absolutely crazy and exclusively with us, that is, in Russia. And do you seriously think that such a "bump of vision" will be shared, and not even by the majority, but simply by thinking people?

Answer 3

Of course.

Echo of Moscow, today, is a platform for expressing completely different points of view on different issues. There are no bans on the radio, really topical news is covered, without censorship. People of completely different points of view are invited. Starting from Navalny, Roizman, Sobchak and ending with Maria Zakharova and Maxim Shevchenko. Therefore, labels in the form of a "liberal party" are definitely not for Echo.

Thanks to such a pluralistic palette of guests and programs, a citizen himself will choose the right position for him on a particular issue. For example, the propagandistic Vesti FM does not provide such an opportunity to its listeners (Navalny on Vesti FM is more like the plot of a fantastic film).

By the way, it is interesting to note that any reproaches for the authority of Echo of Moscow are thrown by the state media, which are openly censored.

Answer 4

The ideal media should be impartial.

No media can be impartial. If only because people work there, and people (especially creative ones) tend to have their own opinion and strive to express it. The objectivity of the media can be manifested in giving the opportunity to speak out and people with different opinions. And here it is difficult to reproach EM: there are a lot of materials from people who cannot be called liberals (Maxim Shevchenko, Maria Zakharova, Mikhail Khazin, etc.).

The desire to present different points of view, to allow people with different views to speak out distinguishes EM from the majority of Russian media. Undoubtedly, Echo is an authoritative media outlet.

Answer 5
May, 2021

Yes, definitely. Ekho Moskvy is an authoritative media outlet.

I cannot agree with the author of the previous answer, because I do not consider Echo to be an exclusively “liberal media”. The fact is that on Echo there is a pluralism of opinions, and it, often, consists in giving the floor to liberal politicians and journalists. It so happens that representatives of this political trend appear more often on the radio "Echo of Moscow". This happens both for reasons of ideology and because of the fear of many government officials before "sharp" questions, so they are not such frequent guests at the radio station.

In the editorial office of Echo, in fact, not many liberal journalists. Rather, they are just great professionals who do their job with high quality under the guidance of an extremely tough editor-in-chief A.A. Venediktov.

Answer 6
May, 2021

It depends from what point of view. If we consider Echo of Moscow as a team of specialists, then the answer is yes, of course. Alexei Venediktov managed to gather under the sign of "Echo" a large number of professionals, as well as those attracted from authoritative persons - bloggers, commentators, experts. In this regard, Ekho Moskvy, which has been afloat for many years, is undoubtedly an authoritative media outlet.

The issue of engagement is another matter. It is no secret that Echo of Moscow is a media resource that positions itself as a "liberal media" or something close to that. It would seem that in conditions of state pressure on the media and the triumph of the administrative resource, this should be good. In fact, it often turns out that the materials of "EM" are presented in an extremely biased manner, from openly biased positions.

An ideal media should be impartial. This is difficult to achieve these days (since there is no completely independent media outlets), but reporting, especially news stories, must take into account all points of view. This is what Echo of Moscow, alas, cannot boast of.
