Yesterday, I was in Cafe Coffee Day with my brother and a friend from work. Two girls walked to us, with a camera in hand and id-cards hanging in their necks–suggesting they are journalists for iNext daily news-paper by Jagran.
They asked, if we (three of us) are professionals and would want to be photographed for an article on professionals. Initially, I was very reluctant because I hardly knew them and can’t trust if they are really journalists. Anyway, my brother said, it’s alright and they are from iNext by Jagran (he went on Jagran’s image in India).
Anyway, today we noticed our photographs in iNext in a music-section. Where we are shown praising some music from some movie, honestly I never heard that song and about that movie.
In any case, this is totally wrong reporting/journalism and irresponsible act, where they are not only presenting false information but also lying to people. How irresponsible journalists can be and on top of that, how can a news-paper hire such lame people?
Since morning, I have been asked several times, it’s irritating and I am upset. I have just written an email to editor of the iNext, let’s see what he has to say.
