This article discusses research being done on whether or not foreign media affect corporate governance violations in Russia. It references a study by A. Dyck, N. Volchkova and L. Zingales published in one of the 2008 issues of "Journal of Finance." It explores such questions as who can compel the Western media to report on corporate governance violations and whether shareholders in developing economies are at the mercy of the media and their interest. The study examines data of minor corporate violations and their findings support the notion that media reports tend to affect Russian responses to corporate governance issues.
