Hi Henry,

I agree with most of what you say. There are many black sheeps in our
(journalists) as well. But there are several who still do not touch
etc. Tell me why should someone be appeased for doing his/her job? You
in fact helping the said person by providing him information. It was his
to gather news/information.  Neither is the problem so simple, nor is
solution readymade.

I am sorry that you did not get coverage for not entertaining some
or the other. With no prejudice towards anyone, I suggest that you
make a representation to the editor of the said paper, in good humour.
He/she will certainly look into the matter and assign the beat/job to
someone. It is also likely that the said reporter/correspondent is
it difficult to understand your work, or is overworked, etc., and  is
not doing what he is supposed to do. Well, I am just guessing. May be
are 100 % right.

In any case, your case is strong enough for representation. There is no
in trying. I think I understand this a little better being a journalist

You are absolutely right that a powerful and honest media is a must for
effective democracy.
