Social Profile Survey of Indian Media

A survey of the social profile of more than 300 senior journalists in 37 Hindi and English newspapers and television channels reveals some interesting numbers,
  • No Dalit or Adivasi among top 300 journalists
  • "Hindu upper caste men" — who form 8 per cent of the country's population — hold 71 per cent of the top jobs
  • OBCs, who are estimated to constitute around 40 per cent of the population, account for an "abysmally low" four per cent
  • Muslims are "severely under-represented in the national media": they account for only three per cent among the key decision makers in the national media, compared with 13.4 per cent in the country's population
  • Doubly disadvantaged sections of the population, such as women Other Backward Classes or backward caste Muslims and Christians, are nearly absent among the key decision-makers. The survey, for example, found that there was not a single OBC woman among the 315 journalists enumerated
