ME­DIA SHOULD INTROSPECT

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Region -

The lat­est re­port of the Broad­cast Au­di­ence Re­search Coun­cil says Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi got three times more TV air­time than Congress pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi dur­ing the first four weeks of April. This skewed cov­er­age raises ques­tions on the me­dia, the fourth pil­lar of democ­racy. It is ex­pected to be im­par­tial, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing elec­tions, so that vot­ers can make an in­formed choice. It is now the me­dia’s turn to introspect and make a course cor­rec­tion.
