100-Word Edit: Can’t Media quote Victims’ Family?
Gag on Media
Whether Sushant Singh Rajput death or Minor Girl Murder case in Odisha’s Nayagarh, Media mostly relied on the statements given by family members. Even, a CBI probe was ordered into SSR death case on that basis.
However, in Uttar Pradesh, a case has been registered against ‘The Wire’ & its Reporters for quoting the family members of deceased farmer and controversies surrounding the post-mortem report.
There are hundreds of examples when media quote or report the versions of family and friends of the victims. But, never before media was gagged like this. Perhaps it’s going to be the new normal.
