About The Book
In an era of corporate journalism, the media industry is willing to experiment with the irrational and the perverse. Youngsters across news channels are fed on the diet of crime, sleaze and entertainment, their baptism complete only when they have touched the new high of grounding a news story at the altar of TRP. Newsroom LIVE attempts to capture the shenanigans of the newsroom and its illicit relationship with power corridors and corporate sharks.
