Q. If you were to start an all-new news channel what would the editorial stance you would recommend it to have – pro or anti-BJP government?

 

A. I think I am missing the drift of your question. Assume an entrepreneur wants to start a news channel in Chennai or Nagaland, would the question remain the same? The business assumptions of yours for starting a news channel, to my mind, are fallacious. One can’t start a news channel on such considerations. Governments would come and go, depending on the preference of voters, but a business has to survive on the rationale of consumer preferences and market forces. What is juicy at cocktail circuits should not be applied to business prudence.
