Amartya Sen on India’s media

Brilliant and incisive analysis of the state of India’s media (mostly the press) from Amartya Sen.

“There are, of course, many divisions in India — and some apply to newspaper ownership as well — but the division that introduces a generic bias in Indian news coverage, related to the interest of the newspaper reading public, is more like one between a fortunate fifth of the population who are doing just fine on the basis of the economic progress that is taking place in India, and the rest who are being left firmly behind.”
