Central Government suspends News Channel Media One


This is the second time the news channel is being suspended by the Centre

The Indian Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) suspended the telecast of the Malayalam news channel Media One, citing security concerns. This is the second time the channel has been banned from going on air but no further details were furnished.

“MediaOne channel telecast has once again been disallowed by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India, citing security reasons. The Government has not been forthcoming with the details. MediaOne is taking urgent legal steps for the restoration of the channel, and hope to get back to the viewers as soon as we can. For the time being, we are suspending our telecast, confident that justice will prevail,” channel’s editor Pramod Raman said in a press release. The Kerala High Court meanwhile stayed the operation of the order of the ministry that revoked the license of the channel and banned broadcast. There has been widespread protest against the ministry for its action.
