Despite the Warnings by the court from time to time, the Television news channels do not seem to take a lesson. Remember the Sushant Singh Rajput case and how it was sensationalized by the news channels and media trials that were run. Experts were called in, Debates took place, 24×7. This coverage later turned into pronouncing someone guilty and hounding them. The Bombay High Court observing on the PIL filed against such a media frenzy had slammed the news channels. The Bombay HC questioned what the TV channels called Investigative Journalism and termed it Contemptuous. The court not only slammed the news channel for the kind of coverage they ran on the channels but also took the NBA for a task.
almost five months later, another High Court in the country has slammed the Media for its Sensationalized reporting over the arrest of 21 year-old Climate Activist Disha Ravi. The observations were made by the Delhi High Court while hearing the plea by Disha Ravi who accused the channels of Running one-sided coverage in the matter.
