This post by K (kay translates to ‘who’ in Bangla – he prefers to remain anonymous and so should he) speaks of what plagues the Indian media and he’s not talking of the fast deteriorating quality. Maxim in its ‘Circus Maximus’ section (of Khushboo fame) says the female jurno “has slept with everyone in her office cos it’s acceptable in media.” Though ‘Circus Maximus’ doesn’t claim any authenticity or seriousness, it drives a point about the general impression of media personnel. With news there spreads a lot of gossip. But lecherous bosses and subjugated juniors are not always figment of some gossip monger’s imagination.
K writes, “I debated long and hard before posting this, and a part of me still thinks I should not have, but because at the end of the day, media incestuousness would mean that almost nobody will pick up the story, and as I mentioned, blogs do have a purpose of informing people about things that they will never get to hear about. This is a serious problem in the Indian media.”
Thank god (or whosoever) for the blog.
