PAID NEWS A STIGMA ON THE FACE OF MEDIA

Media is under attack for paid news, and it is genuine concern for our democracy. The question raised by intelligence really is very important as media is always treated a fourth pillar of democracy, recently a delegation of Editors Guild of India met Election commission of India and raised the issue of paid news before them .Even Vise president of India in the upper house of parliament made his observation against paid news during debate in upper house. In a seminar organized by editors’ guild women press all political party was worried about this problem and agreed to include it to make paid news electoral offence as election commission is not adequately empowered to deal with the issue. A bill should be introduced in the parliament to amend the “People’s representation act”, Model code of conduct does not cover the issue of malpractice it is need of the hour .Many senior journalist are of the same view in my opinion journalism is a noble profession and a mission not a product due to that media is entitled for some privilege but if you feel that you are free to promote it as product then accept regulation certainly lose some privilege it is right time now to introspect yourself you cant cheat public, your reader they are fully entitle to get independent news. I am of the view that it is really a stigma on the face of media.
