(Kajal Singh intern journalist):
What is the biggest difference between the earlier politics and now politics? Earlier, only political people used to do politics. Now the media is doing it. Anchors are shrewdly supporting politics and politicians. This is because media is a medium to convey information to people.
In the last few years, the characterization of opposition leaders and parties from TV media has done the job of spreading lies. And now this work is being seen faster. For example, when the anchor of a channel says why did a crowd just gather near the mosque? Then this news was taken with communality.
The anchor makes the job of a straightforward politician and party easy. All mainstream channels are doing this, those anchors come in the evening every day and speak anything and they have so much time with the public were to check the fact. The public quickly decides that the anchors must be right. May be screaming but be right.
But the anchor is sending the public into that darkness. Some of these days, anchors of media institutions are doing the same. A case was registered for abusing the character Arnab Goswami, anchor and owner of Republic Channel in Maharashtra. At the same time, police have registered a case on News18 anchor Amish Devgan for spreading lies.
The Kerala Police has also registered a case against Sudhir Chaudhary, editor of Zee News, and showing the DNA show. Sudhir Chaudhary has an old relationship with jail anyway. The only reason for the registration of these cases is to propagate hatred in lieu of information and forcefully pretend to tell the truth to the public and the country.
Senior Supreme Court advocate Prashant Bhushan on these cases wrote on the social media tweeter, “All these dock media anchors who spread so much hatred for fake news should be kept in mind. If he is also prosecuted for half the crimes he has committed, he will spend the rest of his life in prison. “
Now go to jail or spread hatred again, it will decide the time to come. But the one thing that is deciding is to build its own base without going to politics. Because the Prime Minister of the country also talks to these anchors and he is not interested in talking to any other journalist. Nor has the Prime Minister held any press conference in 6 years where he can talk to them. It clearly shows who the media is and whose?
