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.
