Far worse than being corrupt,the English media in India is blatantly anti-Hindu and pro-Christian for their fear of Sonia and the church.A minor attack on an illegally built church gets prime news importance,whereas the mutilation of a thousand year old Hindu idol gets a passing reference,if at all.The most shameless thing was that Barkha Dutt of interviewing Priyanka Gandhi,a political novice,at the time of general elections for a pro-Congress campaign.The media never talks of the cold blooded murder of Swami Lakshmanananda of Kandhamal,but endlessely broadcast the reaction to that murder for the whole world to think that Christians are under attack in India.The media has fixed branding,that Modi is bad,Sonia is a saint,Rahul is the future and so on.
Corruption is a minor sin,compared to the anti-Hindu,pro-Chris...Christian,pro-Muslim attitude of both the print and electronic media.

If news papers are advertising (be it a politician or a product) they should not be blamed for doing that as long as they say that its an advertisement (like put up a disclaimer). Where else do they make the money from? Its never been social service for that matter. And neither is it the pet project of some whimsical rich mans son to run on no money.

It was always there. Earlier it was very subtle and journalists sold themselves out for small favors like a trip abroad or an allotment of apartment. Now, it is much more blatant and deal in cash. I guess people would turn to Web for news, like in the west.

If news media are up for sale on a large scale to the highest bidder during an election campaign, it may be the death knell for democracy.

I don't know about others, but Anil Kumar you certainly seem to be a mullah yourself -- maybe a Hindu mullah, but a mullah nevertheless

Making money is the biggest motivation for MEDIA. Since more money is on offer from outside India MEDIA gets sold to them and then panders to their fancy.

Media houses, both the print and the electronic ones are inclined to one or the political party(s) at the national level. It has become a convention by the political parties, at all levels to appease the media for favour of carrying stories according to the choice of the political parties. On the face THE PIONEER IS a national newspaper, which dares to unravel scandals and corruptions in the system of (mis)governance.

more than why media is there to only make money through yellow journalism,inciting and intimidating its adversaries and blindly supporting the government in power for the obvious reasons that it gets hefty ad revenues there are some other reasons too that do not the meet the eyes.
Its well known that the media is anti Hindu for the simple reason and the foremost being Hindus do not have funds like those minority groups for whom at the sound of a whistle funds will be flowing from Saudi Arabia and the Vatican.The media also hate the Hindu outfits for they oppose the game that Multinationals play though the sponsoring of ugly and obscene events like beauty paegents,reality shows,western cultures like celebrating those unheard of evants like fathers and mothers day and what not,valentines day all with the sole intentions of brain washing the younger minds to come out of their strong cultural bindings and roots so that its easier for them to thwart the Hindu organizations whom these mutinationals consider as a hurdle.
why would the media otherwise dig only at the Hindus and avoid digging at the Muslims and the Christians.Its all the money that does the dirty tricks in the name of secularism and freedom of expression.
