Ukrainian and world mass information situation of the present. Abstract

The current media situation. World processes and faces of journalism in Ukraine

The mass information situation in Ukraine today is marked by mobility and dynamism, which in general reflects the changes and evolution of all spheres of socio-political life. Ukraine is still in transition: reforms are not being implemented vigorously enough; forces that seek to return to the old are still quite active. At the same time, there is a growing awareness in society that it depends on the OMI, not least where Ukraine is heading, on the basis of which values ​​the public consciousness of its people will be formed.

Today, Ukraine is increasingly adapting to the world information space, and thus the development of Ukrainian journalism is increasingly influenced by the global mass communication situation, which is characterized by the following main trends in its development:

intensively developing modern communication technology that affects nature, expands the scope and deepens the content of information; the process of globalization of information networks, more rapid development of the system "Internet" which already covers more than 200 million people, generates a new type of journalism, characterized by the potential for participation of every citizen in the creation of the media; in the future, according to futurists, will happen further "splicing" man and the computer to which man "transmits" part of the functions of the brain, including the function of accumulation and storage of information; the massive increase in the number of information messages can be described today as a situation "information explosion" which requires from journalism not only a more powerful and technically advanced system of information transmission, but also the transformation of the OMI into powerful think tanks, factories of thought, capable of analyzing and commenting on numerous new layers of messages; without the help of this analytical work of OMI, the reader is unable to cope with the powerful flow of information that is heated on him every day; the understanding of states, social groups and individuals of the importance of the circulation of truthful and comprehensive information is growing; the binary role of journalism in the cultural and field space is becoming more and more apparent: it not only reproduces the socio-political and spiritual-cultural situation in the world, but also largely creates it; the number of international and transnational participants in the process of information movement in the world is growing, and hence the political, social and economic diversity of this phenomenon, especially in the field of education and culture; growing interest in comparative transcultural research, as well as in the study of public opinion and images (images) based on OMI materials; discussions on the new international economic order (NMEP) and the new international information order (NMIP) are developing; there are more and more futurists who link the further fate of world civilization with the development of information superhighways, considering the already modern post-industrial society as an information society.

The concept of a new international information order was proposed in August 1976 at the Conference of Heads of State and Government of non-aligned countries and was aimed at bridging the growing gap between developed and non-aligned countries in the provision of information and communication. The conference declaration stressed that the colonial past of developing countries had led to inequalities in information relations, and the hegemony of information imperialism threatened to turn these countries into passive consumers of one-sided or incomplete information.

Despite supporting the idea of ​​NMIP in the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe and in UN and UNESCO documents, it was opposed by developed capitalist countries, which in the so-called Tallurian anti-declaration in the spirit of Western pluralism demanded the introduction of a simple form If someone has information and means of disseminating it, no one can prevent the dissemination of this information.
