10 online editions that produce high quality news – IMI list
The Institute of Mass Information (IMI) is willing to name 10 online editions which produce almost 100 percent high quality news. The Executive Director of IMI Oksana Romanyuk said it at the international conference "Safe Online - 2020: Modern Challenges", as Ukrinform reported.
“There is a rating of high quality media. It is named a "white list" and will soon be made public. I can announce that it includes 10 national media sites that really have a level of quality information over 95%. These are, in particular, such sites as "Dzerkalo Tyzhdnya” (Mirror of the Week- n/tr), "Ukrayinska Pravda” (Ukrainian Truth-n/tr), "Ukrayinsky Tyzhden” (Ukrainian Week-n/tr), Liga, the site of Public Broadcaster, which has been launched this year and started making big progress. And I am glad that high-quality information is present online and can serve as an alternative source for those citizens who get information on social networks, ” as Oksana Romanyuk said.
She added that we needed to think about how to find ways to forward Ukrainians to these high quality online editions.
As for television, according to her, the situation there is more complicated.
“Apart from Public, it is difficult to cite any broadcaster that I can recommend as completely impartial, de-oligarchized one. This is still ahead, and this is exactly the task for our statesmen, lawmakers, ” the expert stressed.
At the same time, she noted that this area needed a competent and independent regulator.
"If these two principles are met, then I will trust such a national regulator. Unfortunately, we now lack a competent, independent national regulator. I would be very much eager it to appear in Ukraine and for it to be really powerful, and then we can hope for an improvement to be got in the media landscape, ”Romanyuk said.
