Synopsis/ Description
While Indian media has much to be proud of, there is increasing public disenchantment, not just with its shrillness, sermonising and sensationalism, but with its core value - integrity. News market in India is getting too crowded while the advertising pie is getting thinner. Media houses are furiously engaged in finding new and innovative ways to augment their dwindling revenues. Journalism is up for sale and selling of editorial space has become both blatant and institutionalized.
