“They discussed right now”, “Everyone was waiting for something” and “terrible bullshit”: literacy rating of the Russian media

    The Pushkin State Russian Language Institute and ABBYY conducted an order from the Ministry of Communications for the study of leading Russian media. Specialists analyzed 350 thousand offers of printed texts and 120 hours of television and radio programs, and rated publications, radio stations and television channels on a five-point scale, like schoolchildren.



    The A. Pushkin Institute is one of the leading universities in Russia that determine the level of Russian language proficiency. The Institute conducted a study together with ABBYY, a developer of solutions in the field of intellectual information processing and linguistics. They used ABBYY Compreno technology for understanding and analyzing natural language texts.

    Print mass-media


    The Lent makes the least mistakes in the print media, followed by Izvestia and Interfax among the top three literacy leaders. More than 1% of errors per page of the text are made by Moskovsky Komsomolets, Ogonyok, Tass, Komsomolskaya Pravda. Arguments and facts make 1.99% of errors per page of text (in words) - this is the “troika”.

    TV and radio


    Researchers analyzed 120 hours of radio and watched more than 200 television shows. Only 2 mistakes per hour are made on Radio of Russia, 3 - on TV channel Russia-1. Channel 5 and the Russian News Service reported four errors per hour, and Echo of Moscow - seven errors. The FB business makes 8 mistakes every hour.

    From ten or more mistakes Silver Rain, Lighthouse, TVC, Channel One, Kommersant FM and NTV make.

    Announcers incorrectly make sentences, use parasitic words, make excessive borrowings (off-road instead of an SUV) and make stylistic mistakes: "... they were discussing right now," "Everyone was waiting for something," "terrifying bullshit."
