Who owns the Media in Serbia?

SerbiaEurope – Central Asia Activities in the fieldReports and statisticsMedia independenceEvents Conflicts of interestEconomic pressureFreedom of expression June 7, 2021 Find out more 21 June 2017 – Political influence and concentration distorts the Serbian media market. The resulting lack of plurality can be detected in Television and Radio, but also with the printed press. This is one of the results of the three-months-long investigative research that Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) and Reporters Without Borders have jointly carried out. The results of the “Media Ownership Monitor Serbia” are presented in Belgrade today. They shed light on the Serbian media market disclosing who owns and ultimately controls Serbian mass media. The results of the project are accessible in Serbian and English on serbia.mom-rsf.org. The site offers comprehensive information about the media landscape in the country as well as a database of major media outlets, companies and their owners to the general public.“MOM allowed us to uncover the weaknesses of the media sector which in Serbia is economically starved and therefore vulnerable to political influence.” – stated Nafisa Hasanova, RSF-Project Manager of MOM in Serbia. Tanja Maksic, Programme Coordinator at BIRN thinks that “our research showed a major discrepancy between the national and local media. Where national media get all the attention and profits, the local media – more than one thousand outlets – remain underregulated, underfinanced and prone to illicit practices, intransparent ownerships and dealings in general.” HIGH MEDIA AUDIENCE CONCENTRATIONThe Media Ownership Monitor has revealed that the media market in Serbia is highly concentrated. The top four owners in Serbia’s Television market, one of them being the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), reach an audience of almost two thirds of the viewers (62%). An equally high concentration can be observed in printed press, where the top four owners (Ringier Axel Springer Media AG, Adria Media Group, Insajder Tim and Kompanija Novosti) have a combined readership of 63 percent. In Radio, still more than half of the audience (51%) is attributed to the four market leaders – S Media Team, Maxim Media Group, Public Broadcasting Service and Antenna Group. This poses a high risk to media pluralism in the country. The research also revealed a high level of cross-media concentration of the audio-visual, print and online sectors. With high audience shares across TV, Radio and online, the state-owned Public Service Broadcaster takes the lead. It is followed by Pink, Antenna Group, S Media Team and Maxim Media being the strongest private, commercial players in electronic media sector. However, in Serbia cross-media ownership remains separate between audio-visual and print sector. There is no single media company active in all four media sectors. Major owners of TV outlets tend to have radio outlets as well, whereas publishers of print media tend to have online editions of their outlets. In print and online, Ringier Axel Springer Media, Adria Media and Insajder Tim (publisher of Informer daily and online) dominate the audience shares. STRONG INFLUENCE OF THE STATE The Serbian media market is small and oversaturated with media working under harsh economic pressure. There are more than 1600 media outlets registered in the Serbian Business Registry Agency (SBRA), although due to a poorly regulated media system, the exact number of registered active media outlets remains unknown. The two public broadcasters – RTS with national coverage and RTV with regional – receive most of their revenues from the state budget. Besides that, they are competing with other media outlets for shares on a shrinking advertising market, which according to Nielsen was worth round 174 million Euro in 2016. This cannot sustain the economic survival of all currently active media outlets. Due to the permanent lack of capital, the state still has a significant role and impact on the media market. It controls media through ownership, but dominantly through different models of state funding. Public funds are distributed arbitrarily and in a nontransparent manner, usually in favor of pro-government media outlets, without clear and measurable criteria, public controls and evaluations. For years the state through its Ministries and public enterprises has also been the biggest advertiser in the country. Besides, it exerts pressure on the media market through selective enforcement of tax laws: While the bank accounts of a newspaper critical of the government may be blocked due to “unpaid income taxes”, another outlet may stay untouched although owing millions of euros in unpaid taxes. The total amount of state aid on the market and state advertising budgets is unknown to the public, but only 20 percent of state funding to media outlets is awarded through competitive processes.The dependency on state funding makes most media rather propagandists of the ruling party than objective and impartial providers of information for citizens. This became visible during the presidential elections in April 2017, when Aleksandar Vucic – both prime minister and presidential candidate at the time – had ten times more airtime on national broadcasters than all other candidates combined. Critical reporting on government politics is found mostly in online media and investigative centers such as the Center for Investigative Journalism Serbia (CINS), the Crime and Corruption Reporting Network (KRIK), BIRN and the news sites of Istinomer, Insajder, Cenzolovka, Juzne vesti and Voice.NO FULL OWNERSHIP TRANSPARENCY AFTER MEDIA PRIVATIZATION In a process of media privatization, that began in 2015, the state was supposed to give in an ownership of 75 media outlets. Until today, less than half of them have been privatized, although the privatization process is formally finished. Only 34 former state-owned media were actually sold, while many others were closed leaving more than 1000 journalists without a job. Media privatization has given rise to local media ownership concentration with businessmen buying several media outlets at a time in some regions as was the case with businessman Radoica Milosavljevic and the Kopernikus Cable Network, both close to the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS). In the sample of 48 media, investigated by BIRN and Reporters Without Borders, seven had intransparent ownership structures. Particularly two leading papers – Vecernje Novosti and Politika – have unresolved, opaque ownership structures and are effectively state-run. For the majority of the media outlets and related companies, ownership data was at least publicly available at the Serbian Business Register’s Agency (SBRA) and other public registers. Much of the transparency scoring goes to public media PBS, legally obliged to publish details about its ownership proactively and comprehensively. Still, record keeping and data available in public domain could further improve, especially, through Media Register run by SBRA, where current available data are incomplete and outdated. LOCAL MEDIA CONCENTRATION BELOW THE RADARThe media is regulated by well-formulated laws specific to media sector with an exception of online media. Yet the enforcement of these regulations remains problematic. The threshold for media concentration is set rather high, alarming only at a level of 35 percent of audience shares. Numerous concentrations of local media, influencing media pluralism and fair market competition, thus remain under the radar and out of the public eye. Local and regional media hardly reach one percent of the audience share and several of them, when combined under one ownership structure, do not fall under concentration in legal terms, but are de facto changing the local informational landscape.MEDIA OWNERSHIP MONITOR: A GLOBAL RESEARCH PROJECTInitiated by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), the Media Ownership Monitor project is a global research and advocacy effort to promote transparency and media pluralism at an international level. In Serbia, it was conducted together with the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) from April to June 2017. The sample of media investigated included 48 media: 11 television outlets, 10 radio stations, 15 print editions and 12 online outlets. RSF’s partner BIRN, the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, is a network of local non-governmental organisations promoting freedom of speech, human rights and democratic values. Through high quality reporting and creating a pool of skilled journalists BIRN examines and scrutinises key processes, steers debates and provides the public with impartial and reliable information. BIRN Network also monitors and advocates for the transparency and accountability of public institutions and enables CSOs and citizens to influence decision-makers. The project is financed by the German government. Country studies were so far published in Colombia, Cambodia, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Peru, the Philippines and Mongolia. In addition to Serbia, this year, MOM investigates media markets in Ghana, Brazil, Pakistan and Morocco.

Fond memories of life as a ‘country-girl’

For some it’s their family; for others it’s football or baseball…. read more Jaine Treadwell is features editor of The Messenger. Contact her at [email protected] Email the author Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Print Article Next UpPop, my granddaddy, owned farmland and he had tenant houses all along a pig trail on his place. He grew cotton and corn and covered it with clover. He and my grandmother probably had the first commercial chicken houses around these parts. It sure smelled like it.And they didn’t have people come from south of the border to catch the chickens when they grew big enough for the Sunday dinner table. The farm hands and “me and my cousin Jimmy” snagged those ol’ chickens by their skinny, tough, yellow legs with a long wire that hooked on the end. The farm hands thought it was work. We thought it was fun, just like rounding up cattle in the Old West.In the back yard, Mommie had chickens and a rooster that would chase us around the chicken yard like a dog chasing cats. And, if we didn’t or couldn’t out run the ol’ rooster, our legs would get a peckin’ that hurt worse than a keen peach tree limb switching across them. Book Nook to reopen We always had fresh butter that Mommie made in a cake and put a design on top with the butter knife. We had fresh vegetables from the garden and strawberries in the early summer. We had peach trees and a scup’non arbor.The gatherings from the garden were canned and the pantry was our Piggly Wiggly.There was always an ol’ hog in the pen getting fattened to lay down its life when the first cold spell came along in the fall.We’d pull corn, before it was ready, to make corn shuck dolls. We fought wars with the cobs.My family owned the ice plant and people would bring their co-colas and watermelons to be cooled down on those hot summer days. “Me and Jimmy” would get to crush ice and make snow cones for the young’uns that came with their daddies to get ice. We were very popular in the summertime.When the cotton was ready to be picked in the fall, we would go to the fields but that was about all we’d do out there. The barn would be filled with cottonseed and we’d swing from the rafter and land in soft stuff head first, feet first, on our backs and belly up. Not even Mr. Walt Disney could conjure up as much fun as we had playing in the cottonseed.There was no thrill to compare with being a part of the gin crowd. And, there’s no mountain as high as the stacks of cotton bales on the ginyard. We’d go across the railroad tracks to Mr. Tom Conner’s store and get an Orange Crush and a pack of cheese crackers and climb up Mount Cotton Bale and listen to the farmers tell tall tales. I was fascinated by that way of life.Sadly, I can’t go back to those days but I’ll always cherish the memory of them and the times I was a real-life, country kind of gal.. By The Penny Hoarder Published 7:34 pm Friday, July 11, 2014 Often I’m chastised by my friends for my fascination with country life, especially at this time of year when there’s sweet corn to be picked and tomatoes are on the vine. That’s when I get a heavy dose of farm fever.“You never lived in the country,” my friends say as if you have to be a dirt farmer and cornbread “pore” to love the country.But I did live in the country. Today, my home place is not “in the country” but back when I was growing up, a dirt road a mile from town was country. Try walking a country mile and you’ll know.

But, to us, Betty was a fine horse. She would ride us around the chicken yard and through the pecan orchard. She would stand perfectly still while we jumped from a tree limb onto her back just like the cowboys did in the picture show.Pop’s cows doubled as horses when the notion struck us. We’d have a great time riding them around the catch pen until Pop came along and whacked us on our backsides with his walking stick.Mommie had a milk cow that sometimes gave chocolate milk. Daisy Mae was a brown cow so she was likely to give chocolate milk. White cows gave white milk and spotted cows gave buttermilk but brown cows could give chocolate milk, if they took a notion.I never saw Daisy Mae give chocolate milk.

Former Scoutmaster Butler dies

first_img Print Article Cot Wallace said, as Scoutmaster of Troop 34, Butler had the largest and most active Scout troop ever in Brundidge and one that would rival all other troops in the Alabama – West Florida Conference.“More Scouts received their Eagle Scout badges while Mr. Butler was scoutmaster than any other time and it’s a very impressive list,” Wallace said. “We had a good time in the Scouting program and learned a lot.”Wallace laughingly remembered when the troop was a Shiloh National Military Park in Tennessee and one group of Scouts got lost.“They had divided Troop 34 and our guide was new,” Wallace said. “He didn’t know the park very well and got us lost. Mr. Butler was with us so we felt safe but we had to spend the night out in elements without blankets or food.” By The Penny Hoarder Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Book Nook to reopen Email the author Former Scoutmaster Butler dies As a Rotarian, Butler always put service above self. He was distinguished by his fellow Rotarians as a Paul Harris Fellow, Rotary’s highest award, Wallace said.“Charlie had a lot of contacts and no matter what the Rotarians were selling – Boston butts, raffle tickets or fruit cakes, Charlie was the leading salesman. It was that way at church, too. He was going to outdo everybody else because he believed in Rotary and he loved his church.”Butler went about doing good things for his church and his community, but it was perhaps as a Scoutmaster that he had the greatest impact. Skip Published 10:24 pm Tuesday, July 15, 2014 Wallace said Butler was kind and cheerful in dealing with the young guide and brave in dealing with his lost Scouts.”Money was not a plentiful commodity in the Scouting program that was chartered by Brundidge United Methodist Church, and Butler believed the Scouts should earn their keep.“Mr. Butler worked for Wayne Farms and he set it up so that about four times a year, Troop 34 would go out to poultry farms and catch the chickens and put them in crates for delivery,” Wallace said. “We would go out after dark so it would be cooler and for five or six hours, we would catch chickens.“We could have used wire hooks but, being boys, we grabbed the chickens by the legs and threw them in the crates. We got paid and earned money for camping supplies and other things the Troop needed.”Chip Wallace said Butler made Scouting available to all boys who wanted to participate.“There some members of the Troop who didn’t have the money to go to summer camp or participate troop activities. Charlie made sure any Scout who wanted to participate could. He was that kind of leader – that kind of man.”Jim Medley was a Scout leader and worked with Butler in that arena and also in the Rotary Club.“Charlie was a good fellow in all ways,” Medley said “He was committed to a lot of causes and, when he was committed, he was committed. He went all out. There was no half way for Charlie. What more can you say about a man than he was committed to his community and committed all the way.” The news Monday of the death of former Brundidge resident Charlie Butler brought sadness to the community he called home for many years. The news was especially sad for the hundreds of boys that were members of Boy Scout Troop 34 during the two decades Butler was Scoutmaster.The Wallace Brothers, Chip and Cot, both received their Eagle Scout badges under Butler’s leadership. They said Butler is best characterized by the words of the Boy Scout Law, – trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, brave, clean and reverent.“Charlie Butler was Scoutmaster of Troop 34 for during the 1960s and 1970s,” Chip Wallace said. “He was also an outstanding leader in the Brundidge community, the Brundidge Rotary Club and in the Brundidge United Methodist Church. Charlie was a community servant.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson You Might Like Search yields drugs and stolen weapon (MUG) JEREMY CAINSubmitted Photo A joint effort between the Troy Police Department and Pike County Sheriff’s Office put a Troy man… read more Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Hail and snow hit Southern California, Northeast sees another cold blast

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A strong storm hit Southern California Wednesday, bringing hail, snow and heavy rain to the area.The hail was so heavy that it covered the ground in San Diego and 1 to 2 inches of rain fell.Snow fell east of Los Angeles and on Mount Laguna near San Diego. Mount Laguna saw about 5 inches.On Thursday morning, the storm is moving through the central Rocky Mountains with heavy snow — up to 10 inches.In the afternoon and evening, the storm will move into the Plains and could bring strong to severe thunderstorms with damaging winds to Kansas, Oklahoma and parts of the Texas Panhandle.Meanwhile, in the Northeast, the Spring-like weather is over, and much colder air is expected to move in Thursday afternoon and night.On Thursday afternoon, gusty winds at 25 to 35 mph will usher Arctic air into all of the Northeast.They could reach up to 50 mph.By Friday morning, wind chills are expected to dip to single digits and teens for the I-95 corridor and even below zero in upstate New York and into northern New England.A wind chill advisory has been issued for New Hampshire and Maine, where wind chills could be as low as 25 below zero.There are also various rivers in the Mid-South that are still in major and moderate flood stages.The Kentucky and Ohio rivers will continue to rise for the next 24 to 48 hours and will crest either Friday afternoon or night.Kentucky likely won’t see rain for six days, however, so after the rivers crest, they are expected to slowly recede through the weekend into early next week.On Thursday morning, 16 states still have flood alerts for rivers and streams that are running out of their banks from Texas to Ohio.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Guru

first_img Previous Article Next Article GuruOn 1 Apr 2003 in Personnel Today This week’s guruSeed of an idea came to nothingAs global economic uncertainty continues to increase, companies are beingforced to come up with increasingly innovative ways of remaining in business. Guru was particularly intrigued by staff at a Romanian car factory whodevised a cunning plan to donate their sperm, then pay the money to meet theiremployer ARO Campulung’s mounting debts. Each of the workers would have needed to donate sperm 400 times to raise themoney needed. Sadly, their attempt failed, and the factory still has to payalmost £13m in debts and sack 1,000 workers. Guru believes it is probably for the best that these employees’ attempt tosave their jobs by adding to the gene pool was not successful. Why, oh Y, has it proved so hard to adapt to work?Guru wants companies to give youth a chance. According to new research,Generation Y graduates (those born after 1978) want everything now and havelittle concept of loyalty. The study, by headhunters Kendall Tarrant Worldwide, advises employers tospell out the realities when selling the job to new recruits to avoiddisappointments on both sides. This view is shared by Margaret Mitchell, chairman of the British Chambersof Commerce’s skills taskforce. She believes young people lack professionalism, resent discipline, don’trespect authority and have no work ethic. Guru suspects that her bile has been created by pure jealousy. She wasclearly born in 1878 and represents Generation A. PA’s working hell beyond call of dutyWhat kind of job would have you writing your own appraisal, disposing offingernail clippings and looking after stick insects? According to a poll of admin staff, this is all in a day’s work for asecretary or PA. It reveals senior managers are not shy in issuing confusing,difficult and downright strange orders. The most common request is to buy wedding anniversary or Valentine gifts forwives or girlfriends, but the study reveals some PAs have to cope with somesurreal tasks. These include picking up a Viagra prescription, phoning theboss’s wife and telling her he loves her, and organising a mortgage for adirector’s daughter. Guru’s favourite requests include taking care of a pet sheep and booking anappointment for a director to have his sperm frozen. Guru hopes these last twotasks were not linked.Oops! There goes another oneGuru has recently been on a health and safety course and was reminded thatan employer’s responsibilities towards its employees’ wellbeing is extremelycomprehensive. However, he was concerned by a recent magistrates court case where MacyPanel Products of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne admitted a breach of H&S regulations.Apparently, a member of staff chopped off his finger in a machine while showinghis supervisor how he had lost the tip of his thumb moments earlier. The company was fined £1,500 with £970 costs for failing to take effectivemeasures to prevent access to dangerous equipment. Guru, while not defending the employer, questions the common sense of theman involved. If employers all had staff with this sort of mental capacity,they would have to put up signs next to windows saying ‘Danger, gravity – don’tjump’. Comments are closed.

Monitoring Drake Passage with elephant seals: frontal structures and snapshots of transport

first_imgCTD-Satellite Relay Data Loggers (CTD-SRDLs), each recording conductivity, temperature and pressure, were attached to Southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) on the island of South Georgia. During the animals’ migration the CTD-SRDLs recorded and transmitted hydrographic profiles at a rate of approximately 2 profiles day−1 to an average depth of about 547m, representing transect-type sections with a spatial resolution of 16-47 km along the migratory routes of the seals. Two sections are used to clearly identify the locations of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current fronts across Drake Passage, providing in situ data complementary to satellite and other techniques. An empirical relationship between upper ocean temperature and baroclinic mass transport is used to determine the transport through Drake Passage at the times of the sections, and these transports are compared with estimates derived by other techniques. An absolute geostrophic velocity section across Drake Passage is calculated using CTD-SRDL data and data of absolute geostrophic surface velocities from altimetry. The mean total baroclinic transports in June 2004 and April 2005 are estimated to be 124×10^6 ± 14×10^6 m^3/s and 112×10^6 ± 14×10^6 m^3/s respectively.last_img read more
