Paid news concept is a disease that is prevailing in Indian media - The Probe

Paid news concept is a disease that is prevailing in Indian media

Justice N Santosh Hegde, Former Lokayukta –  “We live in a society today which respects money or power. Nothing else. Acquiring power is to acquire money. Acquiring money is to acquire power. One begets the other. Paid news concept is a disease that is prevailing in the Indian media. There is no doubt about it.”

“I want you to be bold. You must say that I will face this problem. I will not compromise because there should be a media which projects the right thing to the people so that people can make their own informed decisions. Truth has no two colours. It has only one colour but it gets distorted when it comes to your personal ambitions. I wish The Probe all the very best. It’s a wonderful step but in the process for quite some time to come, you will face a lot of problems and a lot of negative results but don’t be afraid of it. Face defeat as much as you would enjoy successLook at defeat as something that teaches you.”
