Why do some leaders stop talking when they leave their speeches?
When I interviewed at the grassroots level, I met with various types of leading cadres. Most of the leading cadres are easy to ask questions from the media. However, from time to time, they will also encounter the leading cadres who will not speak if they leave the lecture notes. The observation shows that there are roughly three types of people: the first is nothing to say. Some leading cadres are unprepared in their positions and do their work in a sloppy way. They only put on airs and dont settle down to work difficulties, social blocking points and common peoples pain points. If we do not act or take responsibility, we will have nothing to say in the face of the media.
The second category is cant say. Some leading cadres are pragmatic, modest, prudent and hard-working, but they are not good at words, or keep a low profile, or when the media is afraid of saying wrong things, they simply say less, or even dont say it.
The third category is unwilling to say. Some leading cadres have natural distrust and even hostile attitude towards the media. They often refuse to be interviewed by reporters. I really have to accept interviews, but also speak Mandarin, cliche, according to the book. The answer to the questions raised by the reporters is not playing Taiji, or even putting up the shield of no comment.
Apart from the fact that the work is not practical, there is nothing to say, cant say and wont say are all related to the media literacy of leading cadres.
Leading cadres should enhance their ability to deal with the media, and be good at using the media to publicize policies and opinions, understand social conditions and public opinions, find contradictions and problems, guide social emotions, mobilize the people and promote practical work.
In August this year, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China issued the regulations on the publicity work of the Communist Party of China, which made scientific, standardized and institutionalized provisions on the publicity work of the party. Leaders at all levels should take the opportunity of studying and implementing the regulations to further enhance their sense of responsibility and mission in publicity work, improve their media literacy and enhance their ability to deal with the media.
Specifically, leading cadres should establish a sense of active communication, actively cultivate their own expression ability, especially put down the official shelf, fully respect and trust the media, regard the media as a platform for communication and dialogue, and establish a good relationship with the media. Make friends with journalists, make friends with them, care for them, trust them and support their work of interview and reporting.
When receiving media interviews, leading cadres should maintain a sincere and confident attitude, not to evade, not to shirk, not to cover up. One is to say one thing, to make the partys policy and reform practice comprehensive, clear and thorough, and to solve doubts and doubts in propaganda, so as to better guide the masses, serve the masses, and unite the people.
