The media has long been considered the fourth pillar of democracy because of its unconditional service to the oppressed masses. It was a tool used to combat corruption and prejudice based on social status.

Our freedom fighters used the press to raise their voices a century ago to create a stir against British rule. However, as time passed, new forms of media emerged, and the media began to become commercialised as technology advanced. It has shifted from being the fourth pillar of democracy to the first pillar of corruption and inequity.

For the last two decades, Indian journalism has been on a downhill spiral, selling false information, praising excessive noise levels, and outright stating things that make no sense. The media has degraded the quality of India’s public discourse in recent years. The growth of the media has narrowed the public realm and promoted elitist and socially backward values. And it is all because of the hunger of TRP.

This TRP obsession is producing a severe and deadly credibility crisis. The worsening quality of Indian journalism can be evident in various ways, including the rise of TV debates and noisy newsrooms.

Names like Navika Kumar and Arnab Goswami have become synonymous with the abysmal quality of journalism that dominates Indian media. This new breed of journalists has spread its poison and given rise to terrible ignorance and brazen propaganda to make Joseph Goebbels pleased during the previous half-decade.
