How free is the press long question and answer

How free is the press long question and answer

Q.1. What is garbling ? How does Sayers illustrate this form of distortion ?
Ans. Garbling is special accomplishment of the press interviewar. During the production of her latest play Sayers was asked about her plans for the future. In reply she added that she never made plans, but she preferred writing plays instead of novels, Though it is a fact that novels paid better returns. Still she had not attached any importance to financial consideration and gains. She futher expressed her desire to write some play, if she had been commissioned to do so. The press wisted it by distorthing the facts as follws ;  "Miss sayers said, she would write no more plays, except those on commission." In this way the press misinterpreted her statement, reversing the statement she made commission according to press was meant for her running after money and to give it due according to press was meant for her running after money and to give it due consideration. It was completely concocted and fabricated. It is nothing but "garbling" which means, "to give a confused version of one's statement."

Q.2. Describe in your own words the instance of deliberate miracle-mongering ?
Ans. Deliberate miracle-mongering means, "with a veiw to spread the stories, outstanding achievement etc intentionally. "Several times in various local dailies, such types of statement, reporting or event is published which is irrelevent and far from the facts. The writer expresses her personal experience over this issue. It was related to a public address by herself in meeting. it was reported in various local newspapers at that time narrating theirin that sayers had delivered about 20000 words within one and a quarter hour in a public address. It was a wrong reporting because in any case it would have been not possible to deliver as many as 20000 words in such a litter time. Really it was almost 8000 words and that was possible. This is the living instance of deliberate miracle mongering, which has badly infected journalism so far.

Q.3. How are letters of protest treated by the newspaper ? Describe in your own words.
Ans. Letter of protest treated bedly by the newspaper. For the flat suppression of facts, they take the following measures, (a) May be ignored (b) printed in full or in part, along with an editorial comment to the effect that the words reported were actually correct (c) answered privately by the editor-a misguiding step, which does nothing to correct the false impression left in public mind only correction. It is a fact that any body-writer, speaker, actor, politician. they all fell that if they humiliate or annoyed the press, they will suffer for it.

Q.4. Have you ever written a letter of protest to any newspaper ?
Ans. Yes, I had once written a letter of protest to a newspaper, for their misleading and incorrect reporting relating to me. At first the editor did not respond to my letter. After two reminders he expressed his regret over the matter, in reply to my letter. But at the same time he hinted in his letter that infuture if such issue would be raised from my side, It would go against me and I would suffer for that. He neither did publish the clarification nor corrected it in his newspaper.

Q.5. What is the author's attitude to the freedom of press ? Do you agree with her ?
Ans. Sayer's attitude towards the freedom of the press is most clear and meaningful. She expresses her views in a way which speaks of the freedom of the press nicely. She that we usually mean freedom in a very technical and restricted sense such as freedom from direction or censorship by the government. She further explains the role of British press which is singularly free under ordinary conditions. It can attack the policy and political character of ministers, interfere in the delicate machinery of foreign diplomacy, conduct campaign against the downfall of the citizen and expose scandals. in this way she has strongly pleaded for the freedom of the press.
     I fully agree with the author's view over the freedom of the press. press being the fourth pillar to protect and maintain the dignity of country's comstitution. As such it plays a dominant role or the dignity of a nation.
