  1. Mysore Peshva Says:

    Since the question is “can,” the answer should be “yes.” Executive agencies created by Acts of Parliament would be accountable to Parliament, not to the media.

    A couple of other points:

    (1) Why is FMP organizing a study about IB/RAW accountability? — is the event consistent with FMP’s mission? One would expect FMR to discuss and resolve the serious issue of the media’s own accountability to readers/viewers.

    (2) The silhouette of a Doylian spy complete with upturned collar is a boring stereotype — and it doesn’t even reflect what RAW and IB actually do. Come on, mister poster designer, you can do better!

    Bloody Mary ginned Sagarika delivers atlast – not a baby but an article worth reading.

    effective is one, but who will check the accountability of a journalist?
