2018
Many theories have been proposed to explain what new media are and how they can transform media systems. The current research mostly was focused on technical aspects of new media and on their influence on media market. The given study will concentrate on new media as an alternative provider of socially significant information on the example of Russia. The survey contains the analysis of content from new media (blogs) and mainstream media (Sunday news program on the national channel). Comparisons of the data from these two sources show that there are notable differences in the range of topics and in biases. This suggest that if the information that refers to public interest is not presented in mainstream media, it arises by the audience in new media.

Key words: new media, socially significant information, public interest, mainstream media, user-generated content
