    A great, candid, revealing interview. Hope some editors take their cues from Prasun else media will stop being relevent

    the background steel nuts are very disturbing….btw the interviews are very good…good insights which we dont see in news channels…

    Good interview. Some things he tells Madhu about media being corrupt. (1) he says it is not greed but people want to be assoicted with powerfull people and this way they get recognization and negative reputation is also reputation, he says the word in hindi “MANYATA MIL JATI HAIN”. Then he goes on saying “Satta aur Sarkar se satte rahana hain, woh uski manyata hain”. So some people think that just getting associated with powerful people in the government is their need. Idealsm has gone for a toss. This trend is dangerous. Bottom line MONEY.
