Pragya Kaushika: You have criticised the media but you have invested in a new paper, The Sunday Guardian. Why this sudden interest in the media?
Ram Jethmalani: It was due to my disenchantment with the press. I am a habitual writer but nobody has been publishing my articles. So I started this paper with a sense of total frustration with the press….
Vinay Sitapati: You criticised the media, but a large part of Ram Jethmalani is a media creation. You are constantly invited to TV news channels.
Jethmalani: Media does invite me but they invite me for opinions which they like and they also invite me because they think that more people will view their channel.
Sitapati: Many of the views that you give are picked up by millions of people and surely some of it is designed to be that way?
Jethmalani: I am not finding fault with the press. Yes, it is a two-way relationship.
