If the information below is correct then it clearly explains us why our media is always against the people and often sides with one corrupt politician or the other. The worse case is when the media is controlled by a foreigner or a religious organization or even communist. They all have their own selfish agendas. IT can mitigate some of the influences by the media but of course the reach of the IT such as the Internet is very miniscule in the Indian mass. Mass movement is needed to bring the nation to a level that people learn the truth from our media.
