It is a bare truth that a few of journalist in Assam filling their pockets by corruption. If the high professionals of media themselves are politically bias, how can the journalists be away from it? Even we came to know that the regional news channels are coming under the umbrella of ministers. Shame to media freedom.... It is a doubt now how many(journalists) believe that the soul of journalism lay in an uncompromising anti-establishment stand.

Corruption is rampant everywhere. But, when one uses this for character assassination, such newspapers need to be dragged to the court and their offices need to be pulled down. Such meetings will only be grand tea-parties. The real measures to delete such VIRUS lies elsewhere. Wait and Watch.....you will see in your lifetime......

Firstly, when one decides upon a career he/ she has to know of the salary. Journalism might not be as profiting as a career in showbiz like acting, singing or dancing. If one thinks he/ she needs more money, the person should change his/ her job. Just move to an MNC or BPO call centres, be a P.W.D. contractor (in Assam), start a wine-shop etc. Why take up this profession which needs civic responsibility?
