Media, stars must learn to co-exist

My admiration for Abhishek doubled after reading his interview in HT. I have the view that they are in a profession where there is a thin line between personal life and news. Every now and then, several questions have been raised about media ethics. The fact remains that the media never intends to harm anyone's image but only tries to inform the millions of fans about their favourite stars.

My admiration for Abhishek doubled after reading his interview in HT. I have the view that they are in a profession where there is a thin line between personal life and news (as far as media is concerned).

Every now and then, several questions have been raised about media ethics and the limit to which media should interfere in the personal lives of the celebs. The fact remains that the media never intends to harm anyone's image but only tries to inform the millions of fans about their favourite stars.

Even the law cannot bind the media but the media should try to be a little more sensitive to the stars. Since media is a mixed body having all kinds of people the only thing that can be done is that both the media and the stars should try and understand each other and respect each other's professions.
