Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. Irresponsible economics might make good politics, as we have seen in the recent budget, but irresponsible ambition surely makes bad politics. If Sitaram Yachury says Mamta Banerji’s party and BJP are two sides of the same coin, then he should at least get his hair dyed in Hydrogen Peroxide to look like comrade Prakash Karat: if this man is going to let ambition direct his narrative, then he should at least drop the mask of a “selfless worker” which is the minimum required from a champion of the poor.
