Broadcasting industry not in favour of joining Media Council

In a meeting on Thursday, members of the Indian Broadcasting Foundation were unanimous in their view that the broadcasting industry should not be part of the Media Council as proposed by the government.

Many broadcasters fear the council, with predominance of the print media, may not be able to uphold the interests of the broadcasting industry. Representatives of STAR, Sony Entertainment Television, Sahara, Jain TV and BBC, among, others, attended the meet.

The government had earlier said the proposed Media Council would replace the existing Press Council. It had sought views in this regard from print and broadcasting media by May 15. The government proposes to come out with a concept paper on the Media Council. At the same time, it has ruled out bringing the dotcom media under the purview of the Media Council.

Many in the broadcasting industry were of the opinion that even if the government were to insist on content monitoring, the powers should be with the proposed Communication Commission of India.
