15 Kannada journalists have been arrested for forgery, blackmail, extortion in last 45 days. The tree is rotting from the top; there is an ethical vacuum. Kannadigas should be concerned about the news they are consuming.

As a Kannadiga who has been an English journalist all his life, it is deeply depressing and distressing to watch the current plight of Kannada journalism, both print and electronic. On the one hand, there is a burgeoning intellectual vacuum in newsrooms. Gone are the brains who shaped the minds of readers and leaders with balance, nuance and substance. In its place is loud, comic-book froth and frivolity in the name of the “market”. And, on the other hand, individual and i...
