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. PM Modi is right – the key is to attract and retain bright youngsters.

    For that we need to respect merit, discourage sycophancy, create an environment where people of all faiths and views are welcome, where there is freedom to speak, where institutions are strong, where there is rule of law and where opportunity goes to the most deserving, rather than to those well connected.
