Media Pluralism in Armenia: Peculiarities of Reporting "Others' Speech"

"Region" Research Center implemented this study of media pluralism in Armenia to determine:

• Whether there is any pluralism in the two most consumed segments of the Armenian media sector, namely TV and online media outlets,
• How it is manifest and on what matters,
• Whether the prolific “others’ speech” on the media platform is indicative of pluralism in that media outlet and, vice versa, the smaller amount of “others’ speech” is automatically an indicator of lack of pluralism in the media.

In order to answer these questions, we studied the TV programmes and publications of 5 TV companies in Armenia (Public TV, 5 TV Channel, Kentron TV, Yerkir Media TV, Free News TV) and 5 online media outlets (, ,,, for one month (April 10 – May 10, 2022).
