The following booklet titled “The Indian Press is a Private Industry in Public Service” was published on August 8, 1962, and was authored by A.B. Nair. The author states that the Government has primarily created problems concerning the Indian press. Moreover, the ignorance exhibited by the Government in approaching this issue has only resulted in promoting distrust. Unchecked abuse by politicians in the press is an unconventional behavior that places the media in a defensive position. To add to its abusive conduct, attempts to take away the press’s freedom by disguising it under “Ethics and Conduct” have exacerbated newspapers’ plight. Hence the author highlights newspaper’s importance in a developing society and emphasises cooperation between the Government and the press. Such collaboration can only be successful if both parties express an understanding attitude. The Government must pay heed and attention to the demands of the media and recognize it as an essential arm in the development path. He asserts that the press needs freedom from interference and abuse by politicians as no conduct can be effective in an atmosphere of distrust.
