  1. Most of the Journalists demand Money or Gifts. I saw them getting money in covers when they attend some press meets, and also some Journalists threaten business people and employess.
    So overall, it is very good news that some News papers are laying off journalists. I appreciate it!
    These parasites (Journalists ) need to search for another host.
