People who have never seen the inside of a newsroom or even tried to ascertain facts on a story r giving lectures on reporters “tutoring” family members of victims. The job of a reporter is to persuade those afraid to speak out to speak 1/n
That is what @TanushreePande was doing while talking to family members of the #HathrasCase victim. Quite apart from the sheer illegality of tapping phones, those lecturing a brave reporter on how to do her job need to know where to get off. 2/n
Those lecturing may also know that what goes around comes around. A free media is important for everyone’s dignity. 3/n
