Reporting in a post-truth world

Ever since Narendra Modi came to power in 2014, those aligned with his ideology have been openly derisive of journalists they say oppose the BJP. All kinds of invectives have been hurled at journalists, including the coinage of “presstitutes”. Journalists’ credibility was damaged methodically by alleging lack of objectivity in their writing.

Malaysia to offer reward for missing Flight MH370

Malaysia said today it would pay a reward to any private company that found the fuselage of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, days after a fruitless, three-year hunt was suspended.

Australia, Malaysia and China ended the search for the aircraft on Tuesday, leaving one of the world's greatest aviation mysteries unanswered. The Boeing 777 jet disappeared in March 2014, en route to Beijing from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, with 239 people on board.
