Media and corruption issues

Actually, there should be no dearth of stories on corruption in a country like ours, where nothing moves without some persuasion. Yet, in contrast to the electronic media, the print media does not feature many investigative stories on corruption related issues. The Telugu newspapers constitute an exception , to some extent.
The former Vigilance Commissioner's report and his comments have been highlighted in the Press and to see how newpaper's with clear political leanings view the issue, read today's editorials in 'Eenadu' and 'DC'. The former goes for the government's jugular, while the latter is an example of journalistic fence-sitting. To each his own--biases, that is.
