Editorial: 'Three Years' Of 'Modi'sm And One Straight Truth Of India

Under the NDA, poverty has disappeared and unemployment is down to zero.

Unlike many of my journalist friends — most of whom are now either ex-journalists or ex-friends, thanks to polarisation — I don’t frequent the Press Club. After work, I go straight home and spend 45 minutes reading the Bhagavad Gita, before going to bed after a light meal of moong dal, steamed broccoli, and watermelon curry cooked in clarified butter for 22 minutes over a low, blue flame.

Social Media Endorsements: Where Will Marketers Draw the Line?

What if advertisers found a stealthy new way to get their pitch across — a form of messaging perceived more as a friendly recommendation than hard sell? In an over-crowded media environment, marketers would surely flick to such an innovation.

And they have. In the nascent realm of social media influencing, paid endorsements are burgeoning. Celebrities and other influencers present their taste and choices in the marketplace as nothing more than the act of sharing tips with fans and the public — even while failing to make clear that, often, they are being paid to do so.

By M H AHSSAN | INNLIVE

A surgeon navigates the complex social and ethical arena in which illegal organ donations thrive.

Back in 2004, in an editorial for theIndian Journal of Medical Ethics on a kidney transplant racket, I began by saying, "In our scandal-prone Indian public life, one scandal distinguishes itself by the amazing regularity with which it hits the headlines every few years.

Spotlight: Islamic State Readies For Fall Of 'Caliphate'

By SARAH WILLIAMS | INNLIVE

Even as it launches waves of terrorist attacks around the globe, the Islamic State is quietly preparing its followers for the eventual collapse of the caliphate it proclaimed with great fanfare two years ago.

In public messages and in recent actions in Syria, the group's leaders are acknowledging the terrorist organization's declining fortunes on the battlefield while bracing for the possibility that its remaining strongholds could fall.

Editorial: The Dream Of 'Digital India' Is Virtually Dying!

By M H AHSSAN | INNLIVE

Without intervention, Digital India looks to simply be a colony of US and China.

Last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced Digital India and Startup India, to declare India's impending digital eco nomy and local entrepreneurship ecosystem. Today , it looks as though India's ability to build a local digital economy may be failing.

Political Play: AP Govt Bid To Take Control Of Sakshi Media Group Aimed At Crippling Naidu’s Rival Jagan

By M H AHSSAN | INNLIVE

The state hopes to do this by using a new law framed to recover the ill-gotten assets of public servants.

When the Telugu Desam Party came to power in Andhra Pradesh in 2014, its Rajya Sabha MP CM Ramesh predicted that YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy’s troubles had just begun. He said that the TDP would ensure that corruption cases against Reddy are pursued vigorously. The gameplan was clear: ensure Reddy’s prosecution before the next round of polls in 2019 so that the path to Chandrababu Naidu’s second term as chief minister is clear.

Editorial: The Useless 'Madness' Of Bengaluru Crowds

By M H AHSSAN | INNLIVE

Don't make excuses for racist mob violence in Bengaluru, was the site of shameful, racist mob violence, after a Sudanese man drove over and killed a local woman. Much later a young Tanzanian woman, who had nothing to do with the crime but happened to be from the continent of Africa, was dragged out of her car and assaulted by the crowd, her clothes torn, her friends beaten for trying to protect her.

Rohith Vemula And The Deadly Side Of 'Campus Politics'

By NEWSCOP | INNLIVE

OPEN EDITORIAL External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj recently tried to brush off the outrage around the suicide of student Rohith Vemula by remarking that he "was not a Dalit". This insensitive comment was a deliberate attempt not only to obfuscate the issue but also to besmirch the reputation of the bright scholar, whose promising life came to an end due to the culpability, partially at least, of both the HRD Ministry and the University of Hyderabad. The issue at hand is not whether Rohith was a Dalit or not, but the independence of our academic institutions, which unfortunately are remotely controlled by the government of the day.

How Much In Web Traffic Changing The News You Read?

If you’ve ever thought that the quest for more clicks is affecting the sorts of articles that get published in the media, a renowned marketing professor Pinar Yildirim wants you to know that you’re right. But it’s not quite the overarching impact that you might expect.

In this interview with INNLIVE, she talks about a new paper, “Clicks and Editorial Decisions: How Does Popularity Shape Online News Coverage?” The paper, which was co-authored by Ananya Sen, a doctoral candidate in economics at the Toulouse School of Economics in France, teases out the differences in how high-traffic stories get treated in terms of longer-term coverage.

By Sarah Williams
Group Regional Editor - USA
EXCLUSIVE: When an earthquake hit Los Angeles recently, Ken Schwencke, a journalist and programmer for the Los Angeles Times, was first to get the news out. Woken up by the tremors at 6:25 a.m. on Monday, March 17, he went to his computer and found a brief story already waiting, courtesy of a robot — an algorithm he developed and named Quakebot.

Quakebot’s role in the swift reporting of the earthquake story has industry observers talking about the role of robots in the future of journalism. Among those at the forefront of robot journalism is Noam Lemelshtrich Latar, dean of the Sammy Ofer School of Communications at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel.

Actor John Abraham 'Interviews Himself' For Men's Health

SPONSORED: In what is arguably a first in the Indian magazine industry, a Bollywood actor has written out his own story, in his own words, revealing little-known tales from his life. 

For the 101st issue of Men’s Health India in March, John Abraham appears on the cover in his chiselled avatar, but also pens a nine-page autobiography-like interview titled “John Abraham by John Abraham” and signed off by the actor.

The story is preceded by the intriguing tagline, “Life is more than biceps, abs and a famous butt!” 

In the story, Abraham speaks to his fans and the readers of the magazine like a big brother, telling anecdotal tales from his life and advising them how to live their own.

In 2012, he was promoted to the ceremonial post of editorial chairman of the Outlook group. That was two years after he published the Radia tapes story in Outlook magazine.

Editorial: Aam Aadmi Party, Will The Only Option In 2019?

Massive mandate: The party will have to remain focused on values which constitute the basic structure of our constitution.

It is, indeed, instructive to analyse why the ruling BJP was decimated at the polls in Delhi. But the more important point to know is how the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has emerged with a bang: 67 seats in a house of 70! The BJP is down to just three from the 32 it had won in the December 2013 assembly election.
