The Hindu’s latest round of resignations attracts bad press

After the round of resignations at Network 18, ‘The Hindu’ has also attracted bad press as two senior journalists – Praveen Swami and the iconic P. Sainath – quit this week.

Last year, Kasturi and Sons, the owners of ‘The Hindu’, changed the running of the newspaper that was preceded by the resignation of the then editor Siddharth Varadarajan.

The latest round of resignations has raised doubts about how journalists are being treated under the new structure.

Praveen Swami told Best Media Info that, “It began to feel a little bit like working for Pol Pot, and I didn’t want to hang around until I was executed or sent off for re-education”.
