“Watch CCTV to understand major events” has become the transmission trend

The society now is in an age of information explosion. People are always surrounded by different media and the time that can be spared becomes scattered, causing the distraction of the mass’s attention. All these major events with sensational effects will focus on the mass’s attention. According to the investigation to the media influence of major events to the people aged 15-69 in 1037 samples made in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other ten central cities in China in June 2011, TV is the major information source among all the event reports. CCTV is the first platform for the mass to choose and it plays a significant role in guiding the active public opinion of the mass.

The high reliability of the audience to national media is the reason why CCTV can better attract the attention of the mass in case that major events happen. According to the investigation results, from the overall evaluation of the audience to the major events report of different media, the authority, reliability, report timeliness, report objectiveness and comprehensiveness of CCTV are thought-provoking, comfortable and novel, which is superior to that of other media. In addition, over 95% audience recognize that the authority, reliability, timeliness and mentioning rate of major events reported by CCTV are much higher than that of other media.

During 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, the audience rating of CCTV was enhanced dramatically. The audience rating of five channels which rebroadcast Olympic Games was greatly improved than that in the first half of 2008. Furthermore, the increase amplitude of CCTV-5 was 446%, creating view miracle then.
