Whenever something happens to Baijayant Jay Panda's OTV he taunts liberals and expect them to stand with him. In fact, as a part of media fraternity we do that. Now time has come to ask him, what did he do to condemn the police action on journalists in Delhi?
How enthusiastically he supported the goons who attacked JNU students? How conveniently OTV divided the media fraternity in national level and become a part of pro establishment media group under Arnab Goswami?
How OTV stood for every police atrocities on anti POSCO and anti Mining activists? How unethically they establish their monopoly in Odisha by killing ETV? How did they conspire against many BJD leaders to be seated next to power centre in BJD?
If the Pandora box shall be opened, thousands of stories will come out and it will be evidently clear that opportunism was the only ideology they go for. Media freedom can't be a license to circulate fake news or humiliate a tribal girl for electoral gain.
Yesterday, OTV was at the service of BJD and today at the service of their owner's new ideology. There is absolutely no media ethics or rights to freedom of expression involved in their cases.

If I say Nila Madhab Panda’s “I am Kalam” is a love story, it may sound absurd, but I am very firm on my opinion on the film. No doubt, the film is centered on an ideology and a personality. #IAmKalam @nilamadhabpanda
It chronicles the hope, aspiration, dream and struggle of an ambitious boy named “Chhotu”. The spectacular journey of the little boy and his adventure in an unequal social space are uniquely portrayed as a story. #IAmKalam
When everyone is charmed by the little “Chhotu”, I am more hooked into the innocence of a “man-child’, superbly played by Gulshan Grover. It’s truly an adventure to venture a branded “Bad Boy” Gulshan Grover to play the role of a silent lover. #IAmKalam

Today, television rating agency BARC has paused rating of news channels for next 3 months. I believe that, news channels should never be a part of any commercial rating system. News can't be a commercial product like a soap or soap opera. @BARCIndia #TRPFraud
TRP is a terrible whip which scared every editor in newsroom. It affects free flow and analysis of the news. It also promotes unhealthy competition among media organisations to make the news saleable and entertaining. That's a huge danger for democracy and citizens rights.
Let there be no rating system for news channels. Let advertising agencies decide their own choice of channels to promote their products. There are dozens of alternative digital platforms where an advertisement agency can rate and analyse the footprints of the news channels.
