Vinod Mehta interview

Filed under: Across the Universe — Chinmayi @ 5:38 pm

The media is in our faces all the time. Some of us know the stories of the Wall Street Journal and Rupert Murdoch and suchlike, many know about Google but aside from general raving and ranting there seems little that takes a good cold look at the Indian media – what is ought to do, what it does and what it is compelled to do. 

I missed this interview when it was actually published two years ago but luckily, Tehelka has pulled its excellent interview with Vinod Mehta out again. For someone who read Outlook in its heyday, and wondered at the strange sex-obsessed issues that came out from time to time, and wondering why it suddenly hushed up, and wondered what it is like to sell news in our glitz-obsessed country, it was a revelation.
