Media – Being circumspect

Posted/Updated Monday, Jun 23 11:06:07, 2014
Newspapers continue to soft pedal on news concerning media houses. An IndiaTV anchor putting a suicide note on Facebook and then attempting suicide should be news by the yardstick of the current tabloidised media. But the Hindu reported it without mentioning the name of the TV channel, it named the two executives she had mentioned in her note but not the proprietor’s wife, whom she had also mentioned. The Hindustan Times did not report it and the Times of India had a single column story inside. TheExpress reported the incident in its local news pullout but gave all details.
