Concerned about content business newspapers are pushing

Today in economic times I see an attached article that says 80% Indian children are cyber bullied and this survey is done by internet security company mcafee (read clear conflict of interest)

What else do we expect the survey to show. Reality is not even 40% of our children are online to be cyberbullied so 80% is as misleading as it gets and generated to get people to buy mcafee firewall. I expected papers like ET to check this propaganda before publishing.

Can LocalCircles please do a real survey and if I see more such content in ET i for sure am stopping my subscription of this paper. I have found similar content in livemint and already unsubscribed. more

The content of the resource, I believe, is mostly true. However, I don't find the issue to be of much relevance. more  
Price one pays for using social media. more  
Paid news, even TOI Group is not beyond it ? more  
Totally more  
Good idea. What you say is true. Of course, this is not to deny the fact that more children than adults are addicted to the electronics. We adults have to devise a strategy so that a proper balance is struck. more  
So true. The real number would be 40% at best more
