Making a fool of itself...India TV

Rajat Sharma's India TV made a fool of itself once again on Wednesday night when the two murder accused in Meerut were brought to the studio of channel in Nodia even as police waited outside for the media to 'release' the duo so that they could arrest them.

The anchors kept asking the SSP Noida and their correspondent unwarranted questions just to prolong their programme. The accused questioned the police officer and the latter was asked if he had any query from them.

It was not even a drama, pure nonsense and height of media intervention. The manner in which the channel acted was highly irresponsible and depicted misuse of the power of media. Rajat Sharma appeared elated that before police his team tracked the duo. Taking a cue from Sahil Zaru (Rahul Mahajan case) who had gone to the Ajtak studio, this might become a norm in high-profile cases.

हमारी पहल रंग लाई....कल रात (बुधवार) एक सुधी दर्शक ने हमें ये बताया कि किस तरह जानामाना चैनल एनडीटीवी एम्स में डाक्टरों की हड़डताल से एक व्यक्ति की मौत के बाद खबर चलाए जा रह था। वहां मौजूद संवाददाता ने ये जताया कि लोग असंवेदनशील हो चले है और कोई भी मदद को कोई आगे नहीं आ रहा है। मीडियायुग ने पहल करते हुए चैनल हेड से ये बात बताई। फिर आज सुबह ही उस व्यक्ति के परिवार वालो के लिए आर्थिक मदद एनडीटीवी ने जुटाई। कही न कही ये हमारा विश्वास मजबूत करता है, कि टीवी मीडिया में संवेदनशीलता बची है। हमें एक कदम खुद उठाने में केवल सोचने की जरूरत होती है...आपकी एक लिखित पहल हमें मजबूत बना सकती है। गंभीर विषयों पर अपने लेख हमें भेंजे।
