'Mould journalism students as scribes'

Delivering a talk at an interaction programme organised by the Mass Communication and Journalism (MCJ) Department of Karnataka State Open University (KSOU) at the Government First Grade College at Car street here on Friday, Gupta said that institutions should mould journalism students in such a way that they should be capable of working as journalists even without additional trainings.

He said that the job of a journalist is neither creating revolution nor serving the society. But at the same time, they should act as a vital link between people and the government in the process of bringing social changes.

“Journalists should work within the framework of the media organisation which they belong,” he added. “Journalists should never forget the reality that every journalist is primarily a writer. Hence, media persons should continue to write and become masters of all trades,” he suggested adding that young journalists should not build misconceptions.

Talking about the revolution in the media industry, Gupta said that it is the media industry which utilises the technology maximum when compared to other industries.

KSOU Kannada Department Head Dr A Rangaswamy presided. MCJ Department Head Shailesh Raj Urs and Government First Grade College Kannada Department Head Dr Prakashchandra were the guests.
