Some Aspects of the Discrediting Strategy in Soviet Media Discourse (Based on Newspaper Articles of the 1960–1979)

The article is devoted to one of the forms of implementation of the discrediting strategy in the Soviet political media discourse – the tactics of labeling. Examples from the Soviet press of the 1960–1970s (Pravda, Izvestia, Krasnaya zvezda and Vecherniaia Moskva) are analyzed. As a result of the study, semantic groups of labels are identified; their ways of interacting with other means of discrediting are analyzed
