Addressing the webinar, city's senior journalist Praveen Dubey, he said that during the corona era, all media institutions have presented exaggerated news. News institutions do this only in the competition of TRPs. Therefore, media should show good content that positively impact society.

Senior journalist Kirti Rana from Indore said that it was the first experience of reporting in such a dreadful epidemic for all journalists. This is the most severe challenge after the plague epidemic. Corona has given journalists new experiences in journalism.

Nagpur's senior editor Prakash Dubey said that under all circumstances the media should report keeping in mind all aspects. Remembering Mahatma Gandhi, he said that do not look at bad, do not listen and do not speak bad, now the media should follow this. The reason for problems in  journalism is that the society do not consider the journalist important. Media is an important part of society.
