| September 26,2011 02:32 pm IST
According to Wikipedia, the ethics of journalism is one of the most well-defined branches of media ethics, primarily because it is frequently taught in schools of journalism. Journalistic ethics tends to dominate media ethics, sometimes almost to the exclusion of other areas.
Wikipedia explains Freedom of Speech in India as—the Indian constitution guarantees freedom of speech to every citizen and there have been landmark cases in the Indian Supreme Court that have affirmed the nation's policy of allowing free press and freedom of expression to every citizen. In India, citizens are free to criticize politics, politicians, bureaucracy and policies.
Do you think that Indian Media often misuses freedom of speech as a fundamental right?
Have you come across any such instance recently?
