Protocol, not allergy

Mediamen seem to be judgemental, when it comes to few issues. Entry to the media is restricted for brainstorming sessions, policymaking meetings. However the media release by a responsible spokesperson is always available.

It would be timely to recall
"“People like me, who should be giving you the right information are under pressure to hype up the information”.

“During this process they [young journalists] forget what is right and wrong. It is imperative to respect the individuals, their privacy and most important the story should be accurate. More often television channels use words like “first on”, “exclusive”, which have no meaning. Getting the story right is very important,”
