"Opinions are free but facts are sacred."These are the words of C.P.Scott, in his editorial of "The Manchester Guardian", now known as "The Guardian". This editorial was published to mark the centenary celebrations of the newspaper in the year 1921. It stands out as a standard for true journalism in journalistic circles even today. C.P Scott was the editor for 57 years for that newspaper.
The newspapers and the news channels report the happenings in and around the world every day. These are the main source of information to the public. The accurate reporting of the news is the cornerstone of true journalism. The propaganda by the means of journalism is hateful. There will be different opinions in any matter among the people. Some may favor a particular opinion and some others may differ from it. The opinions of the people who differ are as important as the people who support it. Comments in journalism or for that matter in any forum are subject to a self-imposed restraint. It is always good, to be frank, but it is still better to be fair in the comments. This is what is lacking in journalism and also in other platforms. True journalism with unbiased and fair comments are the necessity of the day as we find unfair and fake news is propagated day in and day out. Be honest, be fair and listen to the others while writing or commenting in any media.
