Why are they trying to buy the entire fourth estate? Because they want to control what you think. Going forward, you will hear more and more about how the hike in Petrol Prices is good for you. They will convince you that corruption is in fact good for the economy, just the way demonetisation was.
Those who ask questions, will either be bought, or if they dont listen – killed. As citizens, then, the onus is on us to fight back and empower the media that is funded by the People! Contribute to Janta Ka Reporter’s Political Reporting fund:

Project Story

First they tried to influence them, then they tried to threaten them and finally, when nothing worked, they seem to have decided to buy NDTV out. The message is simple – If we can’t control you, we will buy you!

So what will happen now?

The corporate media is already advocating killing of innocent Rohingyas, just because the establishment wants us to see them as terrorists. Going forward, you will hear more and more about how the hike in Petrol Prices is good for you. They will convince you that corruption is in fact good for the economy, just the way demonetisation was.

More and more honest journalists will be trying to get out of corporate-controlled media, but will they have any place to go to?

Yes, they will. This is where we – the Janta – come in. We are helping online portal Janta Ka Reporter create a Political Reporting fund. With elections around the corner in key states like Gujarat and Karnataka, it’s important that we get reporters to keep an eye on the political situation in the country – more so now, since the establishment has decided to buy or kill any voice that asks questions.

Janta Ka Reporter is one of the foremost news startups when it comes to breaking news on issues that drive the public opinion in the country. Quite often, a story broken by Janta Ka Reporter becomes the trending topic on Social Media. Their founder, Rifat Jawaid was a journalist with BBC in London before he arrived in India to head four channels of the TV Today network. He was unceremoniously removed by India Today when he refused to bend editorially.
Janta Ka Reporter is a living proof of a journalist not falling for victim complex and fighting back!

So then what are we waiting for? Just a few thousand rupees and we can create a reporting fund – small step but could go a long way in fighting against those who want to control our voices!
