I&B Minister Anurag Thakur cautions media on reporting on terror attacks

New Delhi, 29/11: Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Thakur on Tuesday advised caution while live reporting terror attacks, saying it should not provide clues to attackers and their ill motives.

“Media needs to report with responsibility in the case of earthquakes, fire and more importantly terrorist attacks. Media must ensure that any live reporting in case of terrorist attack should not provide clues to the attackers and their ill motives,” Thakur said while addressing the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) General Assembly here.


While the speed with which information is transmitted is important, accuracy is even more important and should be primary in the minds of communicators, Thakur said.
