The freedom of the
Indian press is comparable to Western standards.
A Synopsis by
Nothing is taboo and nobody is sacred to the Indian press and, increasingly, TV.
From the private life of the high and the mighty to financial and sex scandals involving
political leaders -- the Indian press publishes it all.
However, the concept of TV as a stand-alone medium is yet to catch on. A
majority of TV entertainment programmes by both state-owned and the private channels, are
based on popular cinema. Most well-known performers in entertainment
programmes on TV are somehow or the other connected to the movie industry.
