The last few days have been challenging for some of the independent media houses and journalists. Many editors, even those journalists who had in the past received Padama Shri, have been charged with criminal offences.
Meanwhile, the TRP scam that emerged out of Mumbai has slowly started to fade away from people’s memory, as editors who have been accused in the scam moved Supreme Court to avoid arrest after a first information report (FIR) had been lodged in Delhi.
On the other hand, the news of an unprecedented scale raid by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) against NewsClick, an independent news portal, made headlines when this video was recorded.
Senior journalist Urmilesh discusses these issues that have made news from the world of media recently in the latest episode of ‘Media Bol’ with senior journalists Dr. Mukesh Kumar and T.K. Rajlakshmi.
