Rajdeep Sardesai on State of Media and Politics

In his first interactive (and greatly popular!) session with ITMI’s Class of 2015-17, eminent journalist Rajdeep Sardesai‬ addressed many issues in‪ ‎media‬ and politics.

“The concept of ‘breaking news’ is breaking down,” he told the trainees. He hoped journalism would include involvement of local communities and citizen‬ journalism‬.

Mr. Sardesai stressed upon why the new generation of journalists must strike the right balance between “trend-based” journalism and telling “real-issue” stories.
