Indian Media has garnered criticisms quite well, over the past few years. Popular news channels and certain anchors have been the target of public condemnation for recreating public opinions to suite the needs of the current government.
Recently in the Pulwama incident, a Pakistan based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed took lives of more than forty of our CRPF Jawans. A car full of explosives rammed into the CRPF convoy, creating the worst tragedy ever.
Now, with respect to this incident, these channels failed to faithfully portray the real public sentiments.Instead they went on whipping opinions, calling a war against Pakistan. They were as if keeping up in line with the dominant political view for justice.
The anchors spent most of their so called debate sessions and news reporting about the opposition parties. Even they engaged themselves criticising the Hurriyat leaders in Jammu and Kashmir.
Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha tweeted that how willing he is to pay Airtel India, his television network, to block Republic TV instead of allowing himself to see it. This tweet went viral as well.

It seems netizens are quite understanding, they tweeted that how they are on the same page with him and would also like to know the process of the same.But, there are some followers who said he is too weak to digest the truth. Some even made the list longer. Have a look.
