Since neoliberal reforms were launched in India in 1992, economic disparity has come into sharp focus. The richest 1% of Indians own 51.5% of the country’s wealth while the bottom 60% own 4.7%, according to Credit Suisse. Between 2005-06 and 2015-16, the incidence of multidimensional poverty in India was almost halved, according to a report by the United Nations Development Programme. In absolute terms, this means that more than 271 million people were lifted out of poverty in that ten-year period.
Around the clock news
Rohit Deshpande - Aug 22,2020
In 2014, CNN reported the story of a missing airplane, which was known as MH370. During the first few minutes of the report, they informed the audience of the plane's itinerary, last known location, and current status. It was a concise and accurate assessment. However, then they realized they still had 23hours and 50 minutes of airtime to fill. CNN then introduced panels discussing conspiracy theories, graphics telling people what a plane looks like. Anchors brought in toy planes and used holographic planes to discuss the case of MH370. A news story worthy of a few minutes of reporting was bloated up to cover hours of reporting.
