This chapter advances further the analysis of media as a political legitimation mechanism in Russia by delving into the role of political talk shows in controlling public opinion in Russia. Borrowing most effective practices from Western media and American “outrage industry,” the Russian media professionals create TV programming focused on the personalities of their hosts and driven by moral outrage, anger, and other uncivil techniques. The analysis zooms in on Vladimir Solovyev’s talk shows, considered most crucial for the Kremlin-based propaganda efforts, and pays specific attention to the toolkit used by Solovyev and other media personalities in service of the Kremlin.

Keywords:   media control, political talk show, outrage industry, opinion leadership, authoritarian legitimation, Vladimir Solovyev, political agenda control, dominant frame
