Investigative journalism is vanishing from Indian media: CJI
CJI NV Ramana On Media:
- "As a person whose first job was of a journalist, I am taking the liberty to share a few thoughts on present day media. The concept of investigative journalism is unfortunately vanishing from the media canvas. It is true at least in the Indian context,"
- "In the past, we have witnessed newspaper reports on scandals and misconducts creating waves leading to serious consequences. When we were growing up, we eagerly looked forward to newspapers exposing big scandals and the newspapers never disappointed us those days. Barring one or two, I don't recall any story of such magnitude (in recent past). Everything in our garden appears to be rosy,"
- "I am reminded of what Gandhi ji said about newspapers and I quote: 'The newspapers should be read for the study of facts. They should not be allowed to kill the habit of independent thinking.' I hope the media introspects and tests itself against these words of Mahatma,"
