Polarised Media; journalists morally responsible for fair and unbias, says Bombay high court while hearing the SSR media trial case.

This is not a question of legislation, this is a question of accountability. People forget where to draw boundaries. Do it within boundaries. You want to question the government, do it! Someone died and the accusation is that you intervene, “said the bench.

The problem is that someone died, and the accusation is that you intervene.

“The rule of law rules us. There’s a legal system in India, right? How are you advocating that people who go around accusing others should find shelter for press freedom?”

The bench also expressed its disapproval of the manner in which it announced Sushant ‘s death. “There are certain protocols for Reporting Suicides. There should be no provocative headlines. Don’t you have empathy for the dead? It’s so sad,” remarked the bench.
