    Brilliant piece! Newsrooms across the world are struggling with some of these same issues but i despair for Indian journalism – which has such a great tradition of independence and social conscience that is being dragged through the mud by corporate owners who think Paris Hilton is bigger news than poverty and climate change, because she sells more papers.
    For newsrooms, I think the answer could be in Trusts. The reason the Guardian is able to do what it does, without interference, is that it is managed by the Scott Trust and no one stands to make or lose money when it goes against the grain of public opinion to tell the truth.
