Categories: South Asia, India, Elections, Governance, Media & Journalism

Vidyut at AamJanata [1], the common man's blog, writes an open letter to the Indian media criticizing its role in reporting about the ongoing Indian Lok Sabha elections.

Media has failed to provide adequate disclosure of broadcasts of event feeds provided by political parties – which essentially amounts to free advertising time.
