Free media?

Newspost

 
December 5, 2019

It has been become a norm in our country to bully the press for covering news fairly. The tolerance level of our people is almost zero and further moving to the negative. What to talk of freedom of press when gagging and suffocating independent opinion is the letter of the day.

APNS and other media unions should devise a strategy to shield media organisations from such threats. The government must also know that a free media is like fresh air, and fresh air is indispensable for a healthy body and healthy country.
