MEDIA WATCH BRIEF
TV9 has run into trouble with the Karnataka government.  According to a statement from the channel, it has been taken off the air by several cable operators in the state, reportedly after a directive was issued by the state's Energy Minister D K Shivakumar.  This is the second state where it has been blocked. The channel has been in a long-running dispute with the Telangana government, and was even threatened by Chief Minister K Chandraskehar Rao in September.    
Some of the employees of the Hindi news channel P7 News, which is owned by Pearls Broadcasting Corporation Ltd and is based out of Noida sector 57, went on a strike yesterday, demanding salary for the previous few months. In the evening the channel even broadcast a “breaking news”: “salary vivaad ke chalte P7 News band (P7 News shut due to salary-related issues)”. The employees, according to a Hindi media watch site, have alleged that the director Kesar Singh has been planning to shut the channel and abscond.
