From October 10, 2017 to January 10, 2018, the Armenian TV companies pursued a more one-line information policy on “nation-army” topics and the online media ensured diversity of opinions.
These findings were identified in the Armenian Media Discourse on the Nation-Army Concept-2017 survey carried out by the Region Research Center and presented at the Media Center on March 6, 2018.
The survey covered the publications and broadcasts on army by 5 Armenian online media outlets (1in.am, News.am, Aravot.am, 168.am, Tert.am) and 5 TV companies (Public TV Company, Armenia, Kentron, Yerkir Media, Shant) within October 10, 2017 and January 10, 2018.
Laura Baghdasaryan, Director of the Region Research Center, says that most publications on army were produced in this period by 1in.am.
Out of online media outlets, news.am and aravot.am produced up to 36 and 31 publications daily, respectively. Out of TV companies, Kentron provided the most limited coverage of the army topic and Shant and H1 TV companies provided the most extensive coverage.
