Media usage and political views in government-controlled and non-government-controlled areas (GCA and NGCA) of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts in 2016-2017
Volosevych evaluates the results of two media usage surveys conducted by GfK Ukraine which included both polling in government controlled areas (GCA) and non-government controlled areas (NGCA) of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. Volosevych’s paper includes an analysis of the correlation between media usage and political views in GCA and NGCA. He highlights trends in the usage and trust of media sources (TV, web, social networking sites, radio, and press), including the experience of noticing censorship or hidden propaganda, checking of information by using various media sources, etc. He also examines trends in political views and preferences and their correlation with media usage patterns. While television remains the primary source of news for both the GCA and NGCA, the owners of the main TV channels are affiliated with political forces, and therefore, may produce biased information.
