New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi is concerned – now what?
यूपी में रोज महिलाओं के खिलाफ दिल दहला देने वाली घटनाएं हो रही हैं। फिरोजाबाद में पीड़िता के पिता की हत्या कर दी गई। सीतापुर में बच्ची का बलात्कार कर हत्या कर दी गई।
कहां है सरकार?
भाजपा राज में महिलाओं के खिलाफ अपराध का ग्राफ बढ़ा है मगर वे कोई जिम्मेदारी भी नहीं ले रहे। pic.twitter.com/CWvY6CY2hT

BJP Rajya Sabha MP Subramanian Swamy does what he can to diminish AAP’s win – not really, sir.
The media hype on Aap 2020 victory is totally synthetic because the party had five years ago got a bigger victory, with more seats and higher percent of votes when Namo was in his honey moon period. Today despite economy in shambles there is much less to celebrate for Aap. 420!!

Journalist Punya Prasun Bajpai doesn’t appreciate the newsroom melodrama! And so say all of us.
एक संपादक”बिग बौस” में पहुँच जाते है
एक संपादक स्टूडियों में “डांस” करते है..
एक संपादक जनादेश को”देशद्रोही”करार देते है..
ये मीडिया का “स्वर्णिम काल” है !

RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav has some very harsh words for CM Nitish Kumar.
Nitish Kumar ji has completely surrendered himself to RSS-BJP. He didn’t speak on CAA/NPR/NRC then & is deadly silent on tweaking of reservation policy now.
He is the only leader having no principle & ideology but a single objective. He is exhausted, tedious & visionless now.

Gujarat Model at work –
Instead of trying to eliminate poverty, hide poverty behind walls. The rich upper class people should not feel dirty by seeing the poor https://t.co/o8RChtsE2V

You also know that the news media is facing an unprecedented crisis. It is likely that you are also hearing of the brutal layoffs and pay-cuts hitting the industry. There are many reasons why the media’s economics is broken. But a big one is that good people are not yet paying enough for good journalism.
We have a newsroom filled with talented young reporters. We also have the country’s most robust editing and fact-checking team, finest news photographers and video professionals. We are building India’s most ambitious and energetic news platform. And we aren’t even three yet.
At ThePrint, we invest in quality journalists. We pay them fairly and on time even in this difficult period. As you may have noticed, we do not flinch from spending whatever it takes to make sure our reporters reach where the story is. Our stellar coronavirus coverage is a good example. You can check some of it here.
This comes with a sizable cost. For us to continue bringing quality journalism, we need readers like you to pay for it. Because the advertising market is broken too.
