Yellow Journalism
« on: April 09, 2012, 09:59:41 AM »
Journalism is always considered to be the safeguard of democracy and protector of the deprived people. But the term yellow journalism can jeopardize all the achievement of true journalism. It is a matter of great concern that to catch the leading position in the world of journalism some giant News channel & Newspaper publish fictitious sometime biased news and even sometimes hack the privacy of common people. The satellite channel Sky News (Britain) owned by Rupert Murdoch has second time authorized its journalists to hack in public mail and other personal document. Though its a potentially abashing revelation but Sky News is saying that they are doing this to protect human rights. To support their cause the put some examples like buying a Uzi sub-machine gun from black market and entering into a restricted area in Heathrow airport by its journalists to show how easily illegal weapon can be bought in UK or how poor the security system is. But its certainly a matter of argument whether it is legitimate to violate a rule to show the weakness of a rule.
