‘Brokering News- Media, Money and Middlemen’


‘Brokering News- Media, Money and Middlemen’ shows us the nexus of Government, Corporates and Media. Director Umesh Aggarwal points out the increasing public disenchantment, not just with its shrillness, but with its core value – integrity. Journalism is up for sale and selling of editorial space has become both blatant and institutionalised and neither the print nor the electronic media are immune to the malaise.

As an antidote, Video Volunteers will show videos of how community media adds a new dimension to the news we see otherwise.
