2013-09-26 11:28:49 - “Journalism” by Dr. Suresh Babu deals with the core elements of this field and can be of great assistance to Journalist students & press reporters.
The field of journalism has changed over the years and the present book- “Journalism” written by Dr. Suresh Babu stresses on this ongoing revolution. It not only tortures the readers on the basics of journalism- it further throws light on least followed and much forgotten – journalism ethics. News by dint of advanced technology has become easily accessible. Yet, at the same time, it is distorted to feed the greed and the personal interest of the men in power. Originality gets brushed off at the sight of jingling money. Having seen all these at close quarters, Dr. Suresh Babu, through his book- “Journalism” wishes to awaken the very essence of journalism- print and TV media.
Sting operation and new forms of
news gathering methods have loopholes- often innocent gets sucked into to caldron of corruption while the culprits roam free. Press reporters are alleged to give away false information to satisfy the con men and thereby by cheat the public their right to absolute knowledge.
Newspapers give more importance to content which would increase their circulation- without spending much time on true facts that the people are entitled to know. Political influences these days are quite apparent in the reports- much to dismay of the author. Thus, he requests the editors to forgo the tainted methods of suppressing actual facts and show true courage by providing nothing but the absolute right.
Portions of the book have been dedicated to “yellow journalism”. The author refers to its advent and explains its salient features. Furthermore- he stresses on the role of journalists in the modern world and why they should refrain from taking personal favours and neglect the golden rules of their profession.
