Re: [IAC#RG] Sorry state of media in India

Tribune planted a false story on gangrape, and for 5 days media ran back to back coverage on gangrape by jats during agitation. 
Just wonder- no victim, no evidence, no FIR- but media is going gangbang after a single community.
Though there is no principle of collective punishment in our constitution- the people of this community were continually shamed for what they never did. 

Just like the government divide the society by playing one community against another, media too do it skillfully by mass character assassination.
