Justice Markandey Katju Vs the Indian media
As an interested party, we should recuse ourselves from this! Moreover, if we say we understand what he’s saying, we’ll risk proving him wrong. For, Justice Katju, head of the Press Council, thinks a majority of the Indian media—he’s “sorry to say”—are of a very poor intellectual level. We spread superstitions and don’t ask tough questions on real issues. He even thinks Kapil Sibal’s efforts to curb social media are right on. What are we to do? Except, sorry to say, shake our heads?
