Their Fight, Our News: A Case Study of Pussy Riot in British and Russian Online Media

Abstract : Russian punk band Pussy Riot became famous after a performance in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow and a trial which came to be well-known worldwide. The paper com-pares Russian pro-Kremlin and liberal media to British conservative and liberal media in order to demonstrate how components of ideology reinforced the genesis of a critical actor in foreign news. In the Russian case, Pussy Riot, as a critical actor, did not appear in the news because of the ideological structures and role of the selected newspapers in the society. In the case of selected British online media, Pussy Riot was presented as an autonomous col-lective critical actor engaged in the process of politicization. Therefore, ideology embedded in foreign news can play not only a reductive role, as previous research has shown, but also a productive one, reinforcing the genesis of critique.
