Two editors of Zee News Sudhir Chaudhary and Samir Ahluwalia got arrested and were sent to two-day police custody, in the ‘Jindal Extortion Case’.Industrialist Naveen Jindal has alleged them of trying to extort money from him to suppress news against Jindal Group.Jindal Groups’ officials had done a sting operation on Zee News editors trying to negotiate a deal to suppress the news.Soon,Naveen Jindal released the video in public and filed a case against Zee News.This has ignited the debate over whether there is a need for regulation of the media. Paid news is becoming a shameful fact of journalism and news reporting and the Media is surely going through a Credibility Crises because after all even Media Houses are running their show for monetary benefits.Who can assure the Media Houses do not manipulate the truth ?
In a country like ours where corruption has penetrated inside day-to-day life of commoners,can the Media be spared without scrutiny ?
