Curbing Media, Crippling Debate: Soft Censorship in Bulgaria
As part of their soft censorship research series, CIMA, along with the
World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) and the
South East Europe Media Organization, released “Curbing Media, Crippling
Debate: Soft Censorship in Bulgaria”.
(CIMA) “Soft censorship is used to promote positive coverage of
officials or their actions and to punish media outlets that criticize
them. It is the practice of influencing news coverage of state bodies
and officials and their policies and activities through allocation or
withholding of state media spending (subsidies, advertising, and other
media contracts), or selective application of licensing, permits, or
regulations, to shape the broad media landscape; promote or diminish the
economic viability of specific media houses or outlets; and reward or
punish individual media workers. .. The findings and recommendations of
the soft censorship research series aim to contribute to the
implementation of fair and transparent rules that are necessary for the
development of independent media sectors around the world.”
