Majilisman concerned about negative image of Kazakhstan in mass media
Astana. October 17. KazTAG - Shakir Khakhazov, Majilis deputy, is concerned about negative image of Kazakhstan in mass media.
"We have been observing serious problems in the work of the Ministry of Information and Public Development connected with response to hot challenges in the media space. Numerous mass media sources working in the social networks are uncontrolled. The volume of negative information in a number of newspapers, TV channels, Internet publications has been growing with every day. It happens when official mass media rebroadcast fake news taken from social networks, messengers in Telegram and WhatsApp," he said at the session of Majilis.
He indicated a flow of negative information in business media sources.
"The mass media which recently positioned themselves as business focused tend to publish news about criminality and catastrophes. (...) Having read them, a person can hardly be optimistic," he said.
