What Should Be The Treatment Of ‘Adulteration’ In Media?
In this segment, Sudhir Chaudhary speaks openly about how despite Coronavirus being the world’s biggest news, Indian media is focusing on Bollywood.
It looks as if many media houses are openly flaunting their political, religious and other biases and one wonders if some of them have been bought over by political parties. News is not just ‘news’ anymore as it used to be recognised earlier, because events are now distorted, given slants in interpretation, certain facts are totally ignored and certain other points are added without any factual basis. Experienced readers begin to detect these biases and slants over a period of time, but the average readers get misled. Things have come to a state where one finds it really difficult to glean out the truth from among the garbage.
In this segment, Editor-In-Chief Sudhir Chaudhary highlights how Indian media is succumbing to adulteration and not treating it appropriately. Despite the fact that COVID-19 is the world’s biggest news in the year of 2020, Indian news channels have only focused on Bollywood and political outrage. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case has been blown up in the media to the extent that it has a ripple effect on adjoining issues such as drugs, politics, nepotism, the reputation of the film industry, et al. The real issues are not being focused upon and are losing attention as well as resolution.
