Jairam for balanced media reporting

Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh has called upon media to act in a more balanced manner to deliver its promises. Inaugurating a Tata Consultancy Services centre in Guwahati on Saturday, he said that in negative reporting, a journalist should take into his consideration all angles which, he said, is a great responsibility. His observation assumes significance following the recent GS Road molestation episode where a journalist was arrested and an editor in chief with a TV channel wa forced to resign.
