Even as Arnab Goswami hyperventilates about how criticism by fellow journalists of the handling of militants in Kashmir is  anti-Indian, pro-Pakistan, and  pro-terrorist,  the joint resistance camp in Kashmir led by  Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik  has issued a statement urging people in the state to be wary of news channels like Times Now, News X and Zee News which are  “bigoted by design in their reportage of Kashmir in order to mislead and poison the Indian public opinion regarding the events in Kashmir and the Kashmir issue”.             

 Several French news organisations, including the daily Le Monde, Catholic newspaper La Croix and television station BFM-TV, have decided not to carry pictures of those responsible for terror attacks in order to avoid “the potential effects of posthumous glorification”.

However, there are sections in the French media which feel that this self-censorship is neither justified nor desirable. Michel Field, executive director of news, France Télévisions, issued a statement saying that it would continue to publish photos of the perpetrators of terrorism. “Our duty is to inform, it’s the right of citizens to be informed,” the statement said.
