Rti to indian media

corporate lawyer

indian media must disclose who are their sponsors? from whom they get money? who are the ceo and owner of media?  people of india should know that.

 

lawyers and members of lci, what do you think?

Hitting the nail very hard. That's those fourth rated business houses held Indian media do not wish to. Thos big bad business houses whose heart and souls are sold to foreign land employ eith Neera Radias or the Arnab Goswamies to agitate their point of view to get the legislations of their choice.They are one who prop up Hazares, the Ram babas , Sri sri 420 and provide money to sustain such protests. It is them who do not want nuclear power plants to come up in India.

I am sure more members in this forum will support your point of view.

if we know who are funding media, we will clearly understand what media is broadcasting and why? it is very important today since media becomes a paid machine.

 

for example in these days both zee news and aaj tak are focussing crime in UP. why? because they are owned by congress party. in UP congress lost and akhilesh wins. for the coming election, congress paid media is showing how inefficient akhilesh govt. is: by showing crimes in UP 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

how come i know zee news and aaj tak are owned by congress party? from a reliable source. i can't disclose the source for secrecy purpose.

 

my point is if you know who is funding or owning media, you will easily understand the reason of media activity. you could judge the reliability of news published by such media.

 But I think owning a media is known to one and all as the info is readily available as they are all listed companies.Even NGOs which stage ptotest for BT cooton to GM Brinjal are also funded by the interested groups.It is the public which must see through it and take time to react.Its a bad bad world.

info given in the prospectus as listed company may be wrong because it is the same media which gives the info. it can be predicted that they won't tell the truth. i am talking about a third party  investigation under RTI act in order to secure fairness of the infos.

 

besides  there are those who pay to media to publish a news. media must name people who pay to publish which news . this is very important in order to know which news is true and which is false.

We need to take up the issue with RTI Activists across the country, the info commissioners in the States, at CIC for inclusion of such a clause in the RTI Act where the private companies as well as the nedia is brought under RTI act 2005.

Unless we do that the so called self regulated media and self motivated India Inc will continue to behave irresponsibly.If you start a campaign I am with you. I am sure one lac seventy thousand(still growing) members of this law abiding community will come out in full support.
