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.


#JaiSriRam: three words that described news this week. News channels turned into Aastha channels, complete with bhajans, temple sets and super devoted anchors. It was time to show your Bhakti to Lord Ram and King #NarendraModi. #NavikaKumar even went ahead and sang a bhajan while singing generally singing praises of the PM. On #AajTak, #SadhviRithambara was asked to relive the memoirs of #BabriMasjid demolition. Meanwhile, over at #RepublicTV, #ArnabGoswami is still on the #SushantSinghRajput Whodunnit and gave us the most useless interview ever.
