Pressures on the media

Collusion between the press and politicians is not confined to western Europe. Central and Eastern European countries are also plagued by their own mini-Murdochs and in these more fragile democracies, they represent an even bigger threat. Text is taken from

Economic Pressure on Media Independence
18.05.2005: Draga Bozinovic
Media classification from Milosevic’s time into independent media and pro-regime media has been completely erased, but the unjust game on the media market has remained. The new authorities have shown that they are finding it hard to sacrifice influence on media and they have maintained ownership of media, giving them, since they are financed from the budget, economic advantages in relation to non-governmental media. The independent media that carried through the regime change in 2000 manage with difficulty under the new circumstances, and some of them modify their editorial concept adjusting themselves to commercial requirements. This is why, with rare exceptions, dailies are published with enormous headlines, announcements of scandals, various “discoveries,” seasoned with photographs of naked girls.

An Alternative to the Vicious Circle of the Economic Problem of Albanian Media
11.05.2005: Henri ili
In the brief period of seven to eight years, the agenda of Albanian media problems and their role and place in Albania’s democratic attempts after 1990 changed dramatically. The problem of freedom of press in its first stage was in its “raw” shape, namely it was a struggle of freedom of expression to take its due place in a society that was not used to it. Currently, we face a completely new situation. The problem of press freedom today appears in its “net” shape: it appears in the guise of the economic problem of Albanian media.

Media Independence in a Period of Transition
04.05.2005: Drasko Djuranovic
Although the position of state electronic media is very difficult, the media that are not under the control or that do not enjoy the support either of the state or of some party are in the most difficult position of all. On the small Montenegrin market, in a country facing bankruptcy, the media can hardly expect to make a living just off sales and marketing. Surveys of the media sector point to a need for drastic changes in order for some media to survive in this new situation.

Media & Transition -> Montenegro
27.10.2004: Velizar Sredanovic
The reintroduction of direct TV broadcasts of all Montenegrin Assembly sessions on one RTCG radio and one TV channel violates independence - one of the first principles of a public service. Programming schedules, to fit politicians, are again offering a chance to fill the emptied budget of the largest media enterprise in Montenegro.

25.05.2004: Velizar Sredanovic
That the burden of media reform in Montenegro will not sink just certain private electronic media is clear to everyone who carefully follows the media situation. Republic and local public services are threatened no less. Radio Television Montenegro is choking in debts and thousands of employees received only two salaries this year, despite evident programming progress towards a public service.
