Losing Pravda: Ethics and The Press in Post-Truth Russia by Natalia Roudakova

By Natalia Roudakova

What occurs while journalism is made superfluous? Combining ethnography, media research, ethical and political thought this publication examines the unravelling journalism in Russia during the last twenty-five years, and its results on society. It argues that, opposite to frequent assumptions, overdue Soviet-era newshounds shared a cultural agreement with their audiences, which ensured that their paintings was once guided by means of a truth-telling ethic. Post-communist financial and political upheaval led no longer quite a bit to bigger press freedom as to the de-professionalization of journalism, as reporters chanced on themselves having to monetize their truth-seeking abilities. This has culminated in a notion of reporters as political prostitutes, or participants of the 'second oldest profession', as they're typically termed in Russia. Roudakova argues that this cultural shift has essentially eroded the price of truth-seeking and telling in Russian society.
