IJU Expresses Dismay At An Advisory Issued By PCI
Hyderabad, Nov.30 (Maxim News): The Indian Journalists Union (IJU) expressed dismay at an advisory issued by the Press Council of India (PCI) to newspapers in the country in which the PCI opined unregulated circulation of foreign content in Indian newspapers is not desirable.
In a statement issued on Monday K. Sreenivas Reddy and Balwinder Singh Jammu President and Secretary General of IJU said the advisory is an unnecessary meddling into the functioning of news media which is a sacred domain of editors.
That the Editor is responsible for the content published in the newspaper irrespective of the source is known to all and the PCI taking pains to remind editors and publishers about this well established moral and legal principle is surprising to say the least, the IJU leaders averred. (Maxim News)
