Media persons should beg for public apology?
An open forum discussion held at the
, Thrissur in
connection with the seminar on Media Language has concluded that the Media
Persons have moral responsibility to beg for Public Apology for the Media
errors they committed. I strongly protested this concluded remarks of the
forum. In my opinion Media persons need not beg for Public Apology for the
errors other than factual crept into the reporting. At the same Media Persons
should take maximum vigilance in dealing with reporting to avoid such errors.
Media persons no time to get the data processed and error-free for want of
speedier news delivery especially in the onslaught of visual media. It will not
be a good practice of ethics to beg for public apology as and when errors crept
into the reports. There are chances of sinister influences upon his psyche to
hunt for erroneous data for sensationalism and also for reporting easiness. Kerala Sahitya
