Television media now losing credibility
Almost all private TV channels in different languages, (numbering several hundreds) are now owned by political parties, politicians, business men or religious bodies.
On any subject, even before opening TV , we can guess on which they would support.
Is there any way to make the TV media independent and honest ?
Can we bring some restrictions on the ownership pattern of TV media ?
Can we have censorship for TV media to find out the paid and motivated news ?
If people feel a particular channel is not airing reliable information, channel should be removed from selection of channel. If we continue they presume that we like it.
Unless we express what we like how they will be checked? more
