Inter and First National TV still violate standards the most, but all channels muffling information

   

The latest monitoring carried out by Telekritika of news broadcasts with violations of standards which could indicate their commissioned nature unfortunately brings no surprises. 

The two “leaders” as far as violations are concerned remain the channel owned by media magnate and Head of the SBU, Valery Khoroshkovsky and the State-owned First National TV Channel.  While these same two have the most cases where important information is not given coverage, the monitoring shows that all channels are hushing up information.
