Print media conditions in india

Bitter truth about print media will harm society my published article at
THE IMPACT of ’trust destruction’ by the economic powers will be felt for many years and it will affect countries everywhere. When it hits the government bodies and authorities, it has its effect on world economy because of which we are facing a global crisis.
And when it comes to the media because of dishonesty and ‘trust violation’, the global society will face the destruction of one more vital system of our society. The right to information, is the right on which the social structure depends and when it gets corrupt then the concept of ‘Right of Information’ too suffers a major setback. This is a worldwide problem and we must know our social responsibility to overcome the crisis.
In India, the newspapers mean a lot and when we find that what we are reading is manipulated by a so-called editor, who is tied up with a businessman with the hand of a local political personality controlling the information, our trust in this system gets shattered.
As the quality of news suffers, it has its impact on the whole society and system. In short, ’trust destruction’ triggers a major crisis.
The bitter truth about the local newspaper and the misuse of print media, is huge disappointment for an eager reader. In the name of journalism, these professionals indulge in misguiding youths, as the youth are only familiar with the glamour of the media, knowing nothing about the ethics and functioning of the media houses.
And the society provides active workers, to work for the so-called media houses. These youngsters start working with famed newspapers and periodicals but are unaware of the source of money. Those who are in the business of print media they can well imagine how much capital is required for bringing out so many publications regularly.

Criminals are running the news Papers

One more thing, there are several news papers , runned by the so called editors, having a brief record of Crime in different local Police Stations , found guilty by the court of laws and to get out of these cases they are starting the News papers by making arrangements with the Local approval authorities of Newspaper Approval.
They also do not have any Acadmic qualifications,
Approval authorities of news Papers must see this issue;;;;;; eEditors must have a minimum acadmic Qualifications to understand and Must not have any criminal Background. As media is the forth piller of the Indian Democracy .
Print Media is the most popular media tool in India , and we must save it .

Who owns the media in India ?

There are several major publishing groups in India , the most prominent among them being the Times of India Group, the Indian Express Group, the Hindustan Times Group, The Hindu group, the Anandabazar Patrika Group, the Eenadu Group, the Malayalam Manorama Group, the Mathrubhumi group, the Sahara group, the Bhaskar group, and the Dainik Jagran group. Let us see the ownership of different media agencies.


A very popular TV news media is funded by Gospels of Charity in Spain Supports Communism. Recently it has developed a soft corner towards Pakistan because Pakistan President has allowed only this channel to be aired in Pakistan . Indian CEO Prannoy Roy is co-brother of Prakash Karat, General Secretary of the Communist party of India . His wife and Brinda Karat are sisters.

India Today

which used to be the only national weekly which supported BJP is now bought by NDTV!! Since then the tone has changed drastically and turned into Hindu bashing.


This is 100 percent funded by Southern Baptist Church with its branches in all over the world with HQ in US.. The Church annually allocates $800 million for promotion of its channel. Its Indian head is Rajdeep Sardesai and his wife Sagarika Ghosh.

Times group list:

Times Of India, Mid-Day, Nav-Bharth Times, Stardust, Femina, Vijay Times, Vijaya Karnataka, Times now (24- hour news channel) and many more... Times Group is owned by Bennet & Coleman. 'World Christian Council¢ does 80 percent of the Funding, and an Englishman and an Italian equally share balance 20 percent. The Italian Robertio Mindo is a close relative of Sonia Gandhi.

Star TV:

It is run by an Australian, who is supported by St. Peters Pontifical Church Melbourne.

Hindustan Times:

The Hindu:

Indian Express:

Asian Age and Deccan Chronicle:

Ø > Gujarat riots which took place in 2002 where Hindus were burnt alive, > > Rajdeep Sardesai and Bharkha Dutt working for NDTV at that time coverd only Muslim victims, which they did very faithfully. Not a single Hindu family was interviewed or shown on TV whose near and dear ones had been burnt alive, it is reported. WHY?


Tarun Tejpal of < <> regularly target BJP and Hindus only, WHY?
The ownership explains the control of media in India by foreigners. The result is obvious.
some more interesting facts,

the second layers of media, as local newspapers are in the hand of anti - social element just to misuse the print media by any mean:- 1) just to sale press cards and to misuse the word press. some has been detected by PBI in Delhi and Kolkata Press, a big word, fourth pillar of democracy, there are 5000 local news papers in India as per the records of press council of India . and Sir surprisingly most of them are to fix big names on cars only. to make money by blackmailing or by one or other mean. using cut and paste concepts of the microsoft word. In west bengal, there is a long list of Newspapers and in the name of freelancing as they are make money through even issuing press cards. Please provide information, than we can at least complain against them for example read this:
Fake press cards for Rs 500! October 10, 2007 11:40 IST Now anyone can avail a press card for a paltry sum of Rs 500! Believe it or not but this was taking place around colleges in Kolkata, where posters had been put up stating that on procurement of enrolment forms for Rs 500, press cards for freelance journalists for a 'yet to be published' magazine 'India TV News' and 'yet to be aired' television channel 'Suvidha' would be issued. Arun Kumar Lunia alias Arun Jain, flashed his 'Press' card with the words 'Information and Broadcasting Ministry, Government of India, and Press Information Bureau, Licensing Branch, Kolkata' written in the front and behind the card. The card also showed 'Life Time' validity printed on it. When confronted, Lunia claimed that he had supporting documents. Home Secretary Prasad Ranjan Roy told UNI, "This is an absolute fraud and we will proceed against the offender." Upon verification with the Press Information Bureau, a spokesperson told UNI that it had no licensing branch or had no authority to issue any press card. A member of the West Bengal Press Card Accreditation Committee also confirmed that no house card can have either I&B Ministry or PIB's name, other than the one issued for PIB journalists. Moreover, press cards can only be issued by the West Bengal government in this state and that too after the reporter has had three years' experience of reporting and comes from a bonafide publication house/TV-radio channel. The card is valid for a year and has to be renewed after that. One such poster was put up at a reputed missionary college in South Kolkata and money was being collected by a student coordinating for Lunia.
