Journalism should be out of the premises of censorship
Rajani Sharma 01-2-2012 03:52 AM

Journalism or reporting is a very responsible and sensitive job as it has a direct effect on a society. It is mainly about reporting rather than supporting -but does the journalism today need to be brought under the scissors of censorship?

For

- India being a democratic country has given the right of freedom of expression to everyone and in the field of journalism, freedom of expressing the thoughts without fear is of utmost importance.
- Censorship cripples the journalist as it confines them to work within certain boundaries limiting their thoughts.
- Journalists would expose faces that have a big hand behind corrupting our country or to say the least are working on the lines of corruption.
- It would ensure that people will get to know the truth without any politics involved behind it.
- Free reporting increasing the pressure on politicians and other government bodies. This improves their performance.
- It is a medium to inform the people about various issues related to the society.

Against

- There are always incidents that if revealed would harm one’s image. For ex. A molested girl if showed with her photograph would never get a respectable place in the society.
- Many unnecessary issues have been brought up by the journalists in the recent times which shouldn’t have been brought up in front of the public.
- There are many sensitive issues that a journalist should not raise and censor boards take care of that.
- Journalist generally write or show only those contents which they think will attract more public , which would eventually mean more money for them.
- In an attempt to increase their TRP or be the first one to report, they at times report even the issues which must be kept secret. For e.g. live coverage of attack on Taj hotel by terrorists lead to security issues.

Journalism is a great way of bringing the truth in front of everyone but it has to follow strict guidelines as it might raise some issues.

As we talk about whether should journalism out of the reach of premise of censorship or not.first we may have to consider some facts that in a democratic country like India we can not black out media because media tells us what the happening around us. And if we put censorship on journalism then it will be the violation of right of expression.But on some sensitive issues like communal riots,national security, sexually content,we have to limit freedom of journalism by putting censorship.
Thus we came on the conclusion that we have to limit the freedom of journalism by only putting censorship on some issues like sensitive and national security.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR VALUABLE TIME
