Популизм, политическая персонализация и внимание ведущих печатных СМИ к лидерам зарубежных стран в G20
This article analyzes the influence of populism on the attention of the leading print media of the G20 countries to political leaders. Using the Factiva database, we collected information on the number of mentions of G20 countries and their leaders in the five leading print media of the each G20 countries in 2018, and also supplemented it with information from the Populists in Power Around the World database. In addition, we compared the mentions of leaders with mentions of their countries. We show that populist leaders are attracting more attention from the international press. Also, in the focus are leaders of countries with a personalized form of government, which associates with a high concentration of attention on the head of state. Populism combined with a personalized form of government reinforces this effect. This conclusion corresponds to previous researches of growth of political personalization: the international media pays high attention not so much to economic events as to the actions and statements of individual political leaders.
