As the news broke that AW the Italian company paid Christian  Christian Michel  6 Million Euros to ” Manage Indian Media” the question arises here is who got this money ? its  may the answer of the question that why Indian media looks so divided on the issues, why some media channel raise some issue’s very furiously and keep mum on other issue.

We have also seen it on Ishrat Jaha case as some of the media people have totally  blackout of the revelation made by David colemen a CIA double agent  and other bureaucrats.

After 1995 when television media revolution started in India many Corporates  jumped  into Tv  journalism business but instead of showing real news and assimilating all the view point and presenting it, news channels  became the  den of creating  propaganda, doing politics, taking sides  and  doing corruption.

In today’s time Indian media is totally divided not only company owners but the media editors and corespondents are also divided  on issues and party lines.

Where one side we see Zee News and India News as pro BJP the others side is of NDTV, AAJ tak and ABP which are so ultra liberal that they  even hesitate to show the issue’s related to National Security  (Ishrat Jahah).
