The news channel and particularly its anchor is criticized for not showcasing news on important issues like unemployment, poverty, health, education etc and diverting the attention by publishing “Pro-government” and sensationalizing news.
Similar issues have been surfaced against other channels like Aaj Tak, ABP News, Republic TV, India TV, etc. People are not happy with the media’s approach that is threatening the core of democracy.
