Media Hit By Growth & Credibility: Dasgupta

Though there are numerous complaints about the functioning of media, especially the electronic, the business houses that own media companies do not wish restrictions to be imposed on their functioning, noted scribe and Rajya Sabha member Swapan Dasgupta said.

Mr Dasgupta said that any restriction on media functioning was likely to be opposed by the owners because it would affect their profitability.

“For the owners, running a media company is business, not charity… No one can control media except the viewer,” he told a large gathering of students, academics and others at Maulana Azad National Urdu University. His lecture, “Has the media lost its credibility?” was organized by the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism.
