The news these days is either being censored or highly politicized. There is no ‘clean and clear’ picture anymore. “If You Don’t Read the Newspaper You Are Uninformed, If You Do Read the Newspaper You Are Misinformed” are the words said by Mark Twain. In this paper, we will see what is the general perception of the people regarding how media works and what are their opinions on issues such as the journalists being threatened, news being politicised or censored and what could be the possible solution for such matters. The dialogue process of various stakeholders in the process is studied. News to be brought out to the public as it is with utmost truth and reality in it so as to let them form their own opinions and freely accept or criticise it.
