“Indian news television is the worst in the world, it is a shameful situation,” says eminent journalist N. Ram.
He was speaking to Sidharth Bhatia in a podcast in the context of the imminent takeover of NDTV by industrialist Gautam Adani. “The takeover is not a simple business deal. Businessmen do not run media companies for profits but for vanity and influence.”
“Adani has said he wants to create a global media organisation, but it will have to remain professional” to achieve that goal, the editor said.
