The media must be free and fair, uninfluenced by corporate or state interests. That's why you, the public, need to pay to keep news free.


This week, Clothesline takes on the new standard for patriotism – standing in queues. After all that talk on ‘Surgical Strikes’ on black money, no one mentioned this! How patriotic are you? We have a new test for you to find out. Plus, we examine how despite PM Modi’s strict directive of not engaging with the media, his ministers have been doing exactly the opposite. Catch all this and more on this episode.
