A kind of film journalists should be blacklisted: Siddharth

Wednesday, August 7, 2019 • Telugu Comments

A kind of film journalists should be blacklisted: Siddharth'Bommarillu' Siddharth is of the view that film journalists who resort to "gossip" should be blacklisted.  Only those with integrity need any respect.  

"Let the film fraternity clearly distinguish between journalists with integrity and those who will stoop to any level for clicks. PROs and filmmakers must blacklist defaulting individuals. Gossip culture cannot be stopped. You can, however, fight against it. Change the bad habits!" the actor today said.

The suggestion is problematic at so many levels.  It's difficult to decide what is gossip and what is not.  Imagine a situation like this: A journalist writes that a star actor is doing a mass actioner because a family entertainer that he did flopped a couple of years ago.  Would this be called gossip or analysis?  It's all fluid.  Also, star heroes, directors and producers can unduly influence journalism when things are vaguely defined.
