Mangalore, February 8: Vishweshwar Bhat, the former editor of the ‘Vijaya Karnataka’, a Kannada daily belonging to The Times of India group, has joined the State’s fourth largest news paper, Kannada Prabha, as editor-in-chief.

Manoj Kumar Sonthalia, Chairman and Managing director of The New Indian Express group which owns Kannada Prabha introduced Mr Bhat to the editorial staff and management team of Kannada Prabha at its head office in Bangalore on Monday evening.

On his blog, Mr Bhat called the shift to Kannada Prabha a “homecoming”, having served it for four years as sub-editor in the initial stages of his career and then having done another four year stint at the Asian Schoool of Journalism when it was launched by the Express group.

Along with Mr Bhat, Prathapa Simha, former Chief Sub Editor of VK, P Thyagraj, former Chief Correspondent of VK and Radhakrishna Badthi, former Editor of Lavalavike, a magazine of VK, also set to entre the Kannada Prabha, inside source of the daily said. The trio had quit VK along with guru Mr Bhat.

When Mr Bhat resigned VK nearly two months ago, he had cited pursuing higher studies as the reason for quitting and had subsequently launched his own blog.

Almost all journalist takes money to publish the news. The do not consider the value of news for their readers, This is the reason most of the newspapers of nay language are loaded with crime news and film news as this is the only important segment. No news from the academics. All corporate news are paid news.
Newspapers are the 4th pillar of democracy but majority of journalists of today are taking money to publish news. Sometimes they are taking money to not to publish the news. Many a times they blackmail. No moral in any field. The country is going down in every second.
