Media Musings Blog Archive Putin media to the test The relationship between government and media is currently coming under greater and more official scrutiny.
From Bob Brown's running battle with "the hate media" to the coming enquiry into media ownership in Australia, the significance of this issue continues to diversify, seemingly affecting a wide range louis vuitton agenda worth it of issues. The dangers of the corporatisation of information services; the way in which Tony Abbott has dominated public discussion by waging negative campaigns; and, more generally, the public discourse on what it means to be an Australian. I would like to ask, how is the Australian Government's use of media affecting the way Australian's see themselves? Let's have a look at Russia. A spokesman for Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin revealed in an interview on Tuesday that a recent scuba diving exhibition, during which Putin was filmed pulling 6,000 year old Greek relics from the sea floor,had been staged. If you find that surprising, you obviously haven't been paying attention. Putin's image as a macho man, action hero leader, has been clumsily cobbled together through a series of staged media events. So much so that it says more about Putin's officials underestimation of the average Russian's intelligence than anything else. Watson lambasted Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott for their seemingly endless media events in working class scenario's wearing hi vis vests and hard hats. "The moment you see the (hard) hat, you think, 'He's not talking to me. He's actually talking to a certain class of Australians," Mr Watson said. What, at its heart, is the difference between the two? Business analyst's point to the question of Putin's leadership as been crucial to investor confidence in Russia, in the delicate balance between security and corruption that has come to define modern Russia. Can we see Julia Gillard's relentless public focus on the resources industry as perpetuating ideas of the two speed economy? Perhaps, by constantly playing up the shallow image of Australia as a giant coal and gas mine, the Labour government is undermining the proposed aim of Building the Education Revolution, a cornerstone policy of the last election. Don Watson said that what most people really want is a conversation with our politicians, "as if they talking to you like you are a thinking human being, not someone who identifies closely with someone in a fish market." While it may be true that voters in marginal seats do in fact work in factories and fish markets, there is a shocking lack of public focus on our ability to intelligently move the country forward in the "Asian Century" Maybe, the Government should look at photo opportunities as a way to diversify the public's opinion of themselves, and integrate the spin with their proposed long term goals.
