New RBC owner Beryozkin not to influence editorial line
According to Beryozkin, personnel reshuffles are not planned after his arrival, since he "will try to feather in" with the current team.
Businessman Grigory Beryozkin, who has recently acquired RBC, said in an interview with Vedomosti that he was not going to influence the editorial line.
"I do not intend to influence the editorial line at all. This is such a Pandora's box that if you open it once, then there will be no end of worries. People have less motivation, personal responsibility", he claimed in the interview.
When asked what he would say to "reputable people on the claims that the RBC journalists wrote another bad story about Rosneft", the businessman said that "there is an editorial office" and there is the CEO who "perfectly deal with these blows, so let them talk with them".
According to Beryozkin, personnel reshuffles are not planned upon his arrival, as he "will try to feather in" with the current team.
"The audience of RBC is very intelligent. I often see, and not only in RBC, that the presentation of material is more personalized than necessary. It is more useful to see meanings and processes in the news. I do not want to give examples, but any news can be written positively", - this way the new owner of RBC replied to the question on what changes were still planned.
