Yeah i accept to the views of abid and i also accept that there should censorship in journalism and especially no government issues should not be spoken public which gives a black mark on our nation as we did for the common wealth games.
The question on censorship of media is one of magnitude. There cannot be an answer of YES or NO sort.It should be more or less.But you ask me a hundred times about complete freedom of media and all my answers will be NO.
Biased reporting and selfish motives have seen media create riots and stampedes in recent times. When the fourth state plays in the hands of political muscles we all are well acquainted what happens.The same news can be interpreted in several ways by audio, written and visual media.The entry of electronic components of media have worsened the matter even more.Where cctv and electronic eyes have been boons of today we also have editing of stored reports and visual clips to shift an event in one's favour.
So again, censorship with required amount of freedom is recommended for media in all its forms.
