Anything on WhatsApp, TV is presumed to be gospel: Harish Salve on media trial

Senior advocate Harish Salve and some top lawyers in India have expressed serious concerns on the way the media has been handling cases and running their trial in many cases. "We jump into people's personal lives, we call people names, all in the name of transparency...This system has to be contained if India has to become a serious republic. See the measured response in other countries. See how the BBC covers important cases... In India, no one is willing to have a hard look at the system."," Harish Salve said during the Ram Jethmalani Memorial Lecture. Many top lawyers including Kapil Sibal, AM Singhvi, C Aryama Sundaram, Fali S Nariman, Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta, Soli Sorabjee and Law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad also attended the online lecture in memory of late Ram Jethmalani.
