Indian media is going through a churn right now. Where digital media is making in-roads into the market which was so far an exclusive domain of the mainstream media, there's also a lot of fluff, which is just entertainment masked as quick news.
There's also a tiff between ideologies, where most media has picked it's side. Left leaning ideas are already the fulcrum point of general political-correctness. Though the right leaning conservatism is slowly catching up worldwide, their ideas are still lined up with those of the average hate mongers
Modern media is failing at clearing this fog. Fairness is passe, and sadly so. Partisanship is the trend of the day. What is also the trend is "trending" itself, populism and sensationalism, has made the business of media unfeasible for the old practitioners.
In an ideal world you could have separated the profit motive from the media, but it doesn't work that way in the real world. However, the balance, would always be a subjective call.
Indian Exponent, amidst these chaos, aims to be a contributor of real insight for it's readers, independent of political correctness and partisanship. We also aim at beating the tsunami of 'cat journalism' with 'real news and analysis' which is easily digestible as well as nutritious.
