Neutrality in journalism aims to help the audience or general public make up their own mind about a story, providing the facts alone and then letting them interpret those on their own.

To maintain neutrality in journalism, journalists should present the facts whether or not they like or agree with those facts.

Impartial reporting is meant to portray issues and events in a neutral and unbiased manner, regardless of the writers opinion or personal beliefs.

But neutrality is dying in India, especially in Andhra Pradesh:

Over 80% of mainstream media organisations in Andhra Pradesh are in favour of ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP).  It is not at all that complicated to come up with this conclusion once you go through their style of reporting.

The way they invest in reporting to simply praise the TDP leaders, the way they hide heart-breaking issues to protect the credibility of the party and the way they mislead the people with biased reporting is mind-boggling.

Ruling party influence results in a biased presentation include the selection of staff, the preferences of an intended audience, and pressure from advertisers.

The storm killed at least 15 people and left a couple of others missing, due to heavy flooding and landslides.

But mainstream media in Andhra Pradesh has utterly failed to cover the situation. You will for sure agree with this statement if you go through the updates people have been posting on social media platforms. You will get to know how people are suffering with no food-water-medicine-transportation-electricity.

And you will get to know much more on the damage if you go through the updates posted by Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan.
