The reason we covered this story is we like disruptors and we consider REPUBLIC as media startup
DISRUPT #1 Ask the Toughest questions to the most important persons
At the most the worse outcome would be the person may not give an interview next time.
DISRUPT #2 Don't believe in Neutrality. Don't be Neutral
Neutrality is a 17th century outdated concept, media is not a wikipedia to present both sides of a story, or act like a town crier.
DISRUPT #3 Doorstep Politicians & VVIP's
Media shouldn't play safe anymore, time has come to take chances.
DISRUPT #4 What is News & What is not News ?
Who decides the order of priority of News ? Why Politics , External Affairs on First Page or Headlines?
DISRUPT #5 Pin Prick in Society for a sustained time
Debate on a subject consistently over a period of time if you want to see a change.
DISRUPT #6 Persistence & Tenacity
It's all in the name of the story that you cover. Go to the nub of the story, dont be subtle , be direct with people in power.
DISRUPT #7 Stop creating HolyCows in the Nation
Why shouldn't a Parliamentarian who was once a Legend Cricketer be asked questions on his attendance?
