  2. With all due respect, not all journalist tell it like it is. Some probably do, and they are probably the ones the clamps are put on. Governments need to do more to protect them.

  3. THE MEDIA HAVE JUST told US accept the one sided news because the world is run by political oligarchs and people should pay for new ,since tax payer are paying for news only for the interest of the oligarchs and the punishment's if they dont .sometimes i feel people pay tax for government to trap the world successfully with lesser freedom everyday , is like everything you do till you die is to make this government successful, while you are brainwash to undermine your basic human right. in your own fucking planet , you cant even respect the natural God given right but you have exchange them with what white house call human right or what some oligarchs ruling there own cartel call human right

  4. Journalist do it for passion , and the passion can be reporting truth or making money by power broking

  5. the problem is getting worst , trust me . problem is getting so much to the point humans will be brain wash to the point when they start paying for the time they spend outside for breathing fresh air

  6. Journalism died a long time ago. These days it's opinion tabloids.

    Try having journalism and keep opinions out.

  7. Most in UK sit in the office. Journalism is not visiting places, seeking answers. It's lazy media journalism.

  8. Hey pal key how come you hate America so much? So salty. I wouldn't even consider paying for this

  9. I would gladly pay for news. But wion still has maturing to do. Just by showing West's mistakes, you can't keep defending our government. Do that and your subscription rate would increase..

  10. Its true journalist have to pay rent and feed the family. Stop supporting corrupt mainstream newspapers and news channels. And support real unbiased news.

  11. you talked about journalism and freedom for press without mentioning julian assange.. whistleblowers might almost be above journalists.. they risk their career and life and family for the people of their country or even the world

  12. Difficult to comment on anything now as Y 'T keeps censoring anything even slightly controversial. Looks like free speech is not a right for citizens, but its only media & journalists who can say anything they like.

  13. I had to suffer through 15 seconds of that British actor Alba (or is it Elba?) trying to sell something before I watched your video. That is a high enough price.

  14. Truth is very simple
    You don't need middleman for that .
    If you know people at home then knowing other is matter of time .
    What kind of people you are …

  15. One other thing is that the platform issue. The platform hosting the channels that is. They earn literally billions in each second but dont pay the news media enough. This should be recognised and brought to limelight.

  16. So, you are doing your job for free. More important job than yours, RAISING CHILDREN, we actually get ZERO! money wise. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  17. If the jurnos or tv anchors jumps around like πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’ and only show bais news and praising the big Fekus no thank you . Keep ur news and i keep my money

  18. The problem is when activists masquerade as journalist and pass it off as honest journalism. People shouldn't pay for that kinda garbage.

  19. When newspapers ruled , and journalists were investigative , not mouth peices for the governments trying to keep control of the tiger they got by the tail – us the not so stupid People .

  20. Zee news is one of the worst channels along with aaj tak and republic tv, never covering the wrongdoings of the government or standing against it. If you protest by publishing true news then we might consider looking back at you guys for true news. You guys have lost our trust… The only way you can win the support of the public is if you make bold moves, you do your work and we will pay you 100%. There are news channels such as newslaundry, mint, wire supported by viewers abd ndtv is already making bold moves, I wouldn't shrug a shoulder if I have to pay ndtv but you guys are not showing the truth of every aspect and thus we don't want biased journalism. I thought you wete the Indian version of VICE but not showing anything about India and no sting operations or documentaries about humanitarian issues in India or the world just shows a half truth journalism

  21. I have no problem paying for news that is done properly. I will pay for Gravitas happily. To be honest we do pay for news channels on TV. The flip side to this is as you mentioned is ads. What I also don't like is being taken for a ride. What Priyanka Chopra & her husband does or what Kangana or Deepika wear while traveling is not news. Unfortunately the media houses don't see it that way. I have not selected entertainment in my choices but these kind of stupid things are put in my timeline or new worthy items. They just put them under trending instead of entertainment. Imagine getting this done even when you pay for the service. Like you said today news is business & like all business paying customer is always a fool.

  22. Time to pay viewers who watch anything on Social media. Also time to pay for content posted by users of Social media.

  23. Today's news is broadly a disgusting thing affecting mental health ; only a pathetic will pay for it.
