Media Irresponsibility

Topic: Media Irresponsibility

Description: They say fools rush in where angels fear to tread. However, those anchors bearing a mike and having a camera in tandem are neither angels, nor fools. They bear down on unsuspecting victims and force them to bear the brunt of the worst type of vigilantism. Where are the journalistic teachings? Where are the ethics and code of conduct?

Is the media justified in prying into the private lives of citizens? Does this come under unveiling of ills or invasion of privacy?
