Is our media clean?
Mostly they are seen running after advertisements to make huge profits, forgetting their main aim - to act as a conduit between public and the administration.

WE HAVE been requesting a local correspondent of a leading national newspaper for a small coverage of a social nature in the paper but in spite of number of requests, it was never looked into despite the fact that they have enough space to insert any case that suited them. Of course, there are space issues but as the age-old adage goes, ‘where there is a will, there is a way’, the will to carry the news was always lacking on the part of the journalist.

The newspaper carried a picture of a widow of BSF personnel twice on Page number 9 and 15. Though we salute the brave constable and his wife but we fail to understand if they can publish it on two pages, why not news that has social relevance? Does it mean only those things that earn them revenue would be published. Sad, if that is the case!

Under no circumstances, shall the media accept diktats of politicians and bureaucrats and they should very boldly cover the facts and figures so that the public gets to know the truth. Even a text/ request to the editor for its insertion in ‘Letters to the Editor’ were ignored.
