I understand some part of how to run an opinions website with the technical complexities of making it successful. The extent, the expanse, the depth and quality of work that Opindia presents is just superhuman. To target someone like Nupur Sharma who has worked so hard - in the way that the West Bengal government did, is not just undemocratic, it is downright wicked.
it is time for a new media
We have come to a point in our democratic societies where the most fascist have usurped the high roads of morality and are using that vantage to shoot everyone who passes by the thoroughfare of journalism.
It is time to dismantle these pretenders.
It is time to dismantle the media itself.
Just as Indians are pledging to not buy the Chinese goods - they also need to pledge that
- they will cut out all the news channels, except TimesNow and Republic.
- they will not buy newspapers anymore
No TV fake news and journalists. No newspapers.
Cut their chord. It is time to take charge of news for it defines us.
Spend that money on donating to Opindia. Please support them so they can create the network of real reporting that is needed.
The renaissance of journalism will have to be built upon the buried carcasses of the current, defunct and pretend media. The new edifice of our media will include structures that speak the truth.
Nothing less should suffice.
