About Asian College of Journalism, Chennai

The independent mass media representing diverse views are vital to the functioning of democracy, to the pursuit of public welfare, and to the protection of the people’s entitlements.

In India the tradition of a pluralistic, relatively independent press dates back more than two hundred years. Enriched by its active involvement in the freedom struggle, the press has developed impressively since Independence.

“Television has become dominant since the 1990s. Online or ‘New Media’ have registered a sharp and varied growth in recent decades. Radio has proliferated with the auctioning of FM spectrum and is expected to  rapidly advance once the government allows news on these private stations.”

Nevertheless, in India as in other developing countries in Asia, there is a vital need to consolidate media strengths, overcome weaknesses, and raise the professional, intellectual, and ethical standards of journalism, so as to bring the performance of the media up to advanced international levels.

The media can be no better than their practitioners.
