Speaker of the House of Representatives, Devraj Ghimire has made a very lowly remark against the free press in Nepal, to say the least. Speaking to a delegation of the Federation of Nepali Journalists (FNJ) on Friday, Speaker Ghimire said – "Journalists are not doing journalism as responsibly as they should have done. The practice of yellow journalism is equally alarming now. Whatever the reason, they [journalists] are biased. In other words, journalists are for sale." These comments made by Speaker Ghimire are deeply concerning and a clear attack on the freedom of the press. His statement that "journalists are for sale" is not only a derogatory remark that undermines the integrity of journalists, but it also has serious implications for the ability of journalists to do their job without fear of reprisal.
