Sreenivasan Jain is a senior journalist with the news channel NDTV and he recently spoke out on a report getting pulled down for ‘legal vetting.’ The report in question belongs to BJP leader Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah’s company.
Here is what Jain wrote with regards to this:
A week ago, a report by Manas Pratap Singh and me on loans given to Jay Shah’s companies was taken down from NDTV’s website. NDTV’s lawyers said it needed to be removed for “legal vetting”.
It has still not been restored. This is deeply unfortunate, since the report is based entirely on facts in the public domain and makes no unsubstantiated or unwarranted assertions. A situation like this presents journalists with hard choices. For now, I am treating this is as a distressing aberration and have decided to continue to do the journalism that I have always done – on NDTV. All of this has been conveyed to NDTV.
Recently, a lot of English journalists have been making news and not much of it can be called ‘favourable.’
