Scrap foreign content note, Editors Guild of India tells Press Council of India | India News

NEW DELHI: The Editors Guild of India has asked the Press Council of India to withdraw its “ominous sounding advisory” cautioning print media against “unregulated circulation of foreign content”. The PCI had, on November 25, issued an advisory to Indian newspapers in which it said “unregulated circulation of foreign content is not desirable”.
The advisory, which said it was in response to references received from the government about the “responsibility of Indian newspapers in publishing foreign contents”, advised media to “publish foreign extracts in Indian newspapers with due verification as the reporter, publisher and editor of such newspapers shall be responsible for the content irrespective of the source from which it is received.”
In response, the EGI on Sunday said it was “perturbed by the unprovoked advisory”. “…It appears that the Council, which swears by self-regulation of media and believes that any government interference would be destructive to press freedom, is lending its weight towards a step that could bring in some form of censorship and punitive action against those organisations that publish content, which in its view is seen as “not desirable”, it said.
