Screening: Brokering News
The movie Brokering News will be screened at Cobalt on 21 July. The movie is about how Indian media has much to be proud of as a significant part of Indian democracy. But, there is an increasing public disenchantment, not just with its shrillness, sermonising and sensationalism, but with its core value-integrity. News market in India is getting too crowded, while the advertising pie is getting thinner. Media houses are furiously engaged in finding new and innovative ways to augment their dwindling revenues.
