Silence is the best course when it ‘s evident your political paymaster is going to get hurt.
Rahul Kanwal instead of reporting news has been occupied in playing fastest finger first.”Breaking News” has no buyers, now this petty ego clash will further reinforce Social Media as the only credible News source for publis. MSM IS that breed which sniff the news & runs away with its tail firmly tucked between it s legs. Leave the space open for Social Media user to share the news.
Nothwithstanding the serious lack of Equipment and expertise. Social Media is doing a commendable job of being a watch dog of India’s Democracy.
Should (MSM) they be engrossed in fastest finger first or should they be performing their primary duty of news gather and broadcasting.
