Scaring the media, again

August 25, 2019 02:25 am

The political change of 1990 came as a boon for media in Nepal. Several private media outlets were opened, they started to flow information from different perspectives and to a large extent Nepali media, over the years, have become able to expose the wrongdoings of political leaders in the government and Nepal’s entire public and private sector. Yes, they have not been able to do so to the full potential but at least they are trying.

KATHMANDU, April 24: The media fraternity in the country has grown wary of repeated 'obstructions' against the private sector press covering public events involving President Bidya Devi Bhandari.

KATHMANDU, Dec 7: For the second week in a row, Minister for Communication and Information Technology Gokul Baskota, one of the most trusted lieutenants of Prime Minister KP Oli, has lambasted private media houses, accusing them of publishing baseless news reports against the government.
