Bihar killings

Read an interesting article here.  The recent endless discussions on the Lokpal Bill has taken up most of the media space.

This of course implies that other event, however minor, are left out without ganing the recognition they should. Just because some issues do not involve the rich and the famous or berating the UPA Government (media’s new favourite) does not mean that they do not find mention in the primetime news. Any violation of human rights and democratic principles deserves censure from the people so that such incidents are not repeated.

Being in the news for the wrong reasons brings in some amount of accountability and it is necessary that media recognises its role in reaching out to the people.

This definitely adds to the debate on whether media exists to sell itself or exists to bring relevant news to the people.
