The Vice President also lamented the fact that news and view are being clubbed today which, he said, is a problem.
Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Saturday came down heavily on sensationalisation of news and said ''sensational news means senseless news''.
With Business groups, political parties and personalities setting up television channels and newspapers to further their interests, core values of journalism are getting eroded, the VP said.
Naidu was speaking at an event on National Press Day in Delhi:
''Sensationalism has become the order of the day, sensational news means senseless news,'' he further said.
Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu: You may ask me, do the political parties have no right to start a newspaper? Yes, but it should be mentioned, this is a newspaper by so and so political party. 2/2 https://t.co/D5Jf6Qrdeo
