ब्लॉगर को पत्रकार बनने की कोई जरूरत नहीं !!!

ब्लॉगर को पत्रकार बनने की जरूरत नहीं!!

ब्लॉगर को पत्रकार बनने की जरूरत नहीं!!

इस मुद्दे पे लिंक्डइन के एक प्रतिष्ठित फोरम में आयोजित चर्चा में विदेशी और देशी मीडिया के अति सम्मानित पत्रकार, मीडिया समूह के मालिको और  पारंपरिक  मीडिया से हटकर सोशल  मीडिया का प्रतिनिधत्व करते सम्मानित ब्लागरो ने गंभीर चर्चा की. इस चर्चा में  मुख्य मुद्दा ये रहा कि ब्लॉगर को पत्रकार माना जाए कि नहीं. पारंपरिक मीडिया से जुड़े अधिकांश लोगो ने सतही कारण गिनाते हुए ब्लॉगर को पत्रकार का दर्जा देने से साफ़ इनकार कर दिया. इनका ये कहना था कि इनमे  वो प्रोफेशनल दक्षता  नहीं है जो कि एक पत्रकार में पायी जाती है. इस समूह का ये भी मानना था कि पत्रकार पत्रकारिता का कोर्स करके और कार्य कुशलता हासिल करके मीडिया के क्षेत्र में आते है लिहाजा इनके पास बेहतर  आलोचनात्म्क  वृत्ति होती है, रिपोर्टिंग स्टाइल बेहतर होती है और ये किसी मुद्दे पे पर बहुत सुलझी हुई प्रतिक्रिया देते है. इस वजह से ये ब्लॉगर से कही बेहतर होते है.  पर मेरी नज़रो में चर्चा में शामिल बड़े नामो ने इस  अति महत्त्वपूर्ण  दृष्टिकोण की  उपेक्षा कर दी: एक  ब्लॉगर को एक अच्छा पत्रकार बनने की जरुरत ही क्या है ?

इस बात को  बहुत अच्छी तरह से महसूस किया जा सकता है कि ब्लागरो के लगातार बढ़ते प्रभाव ने पारंपरिक मीडिया में एक खलबली सी मचा दी है. खैर इस मुद्दे पे पारंपरिक मीडिया से जुड़े पत्रकारों से मै उलझना नहीं चाहता. मै तो उन ब्लागरो को जो कि एक अच्छा पत्रकार बनने की उम्मीद पाल कर ब्लागिंग आरम्भ करते है उनको यही सन्देश पहुचाना चाहता हूँ कि  एक अच्छे पत्रकार  के रूप में अपना सिक्का गाड़ने कि सोच से ये सोच लाख गुना बेहतर है कि ब्लागिंग में जो अद्भुत तत्त्व निहित है उनको अपना के संवेदनशील मुद्दों को बेहतर रूप से जनता के बीच पहुचाएं.  

अच्छी ब्लॉगिंग करने के लिए गज़ब की मेधा और दृढ इच्छाशक्ति चाहिए .

अच्छी ब्लॉगिंग करने के लिए गज़ब की मेधा और दृढ इच्छाशक्ति चाहिए .

मेरा ये मानना है कि पत्रकार और ब्लॉगर में भेद बना रहे. ये अलग बात है कि एक अच्छा पत्रकार और एक सिद्ध ब्लॉगर दोनों लगभग एक सी ही उन्नत सोच और लगभग एक सी ही कार्यशैली  से किसी मुद्दे पर काम करते है. लेकिन इतनी समानता के बावजूद  ब्लॉगर को आधुनिक पत्रकारिता के सांचे में नहीं ढलना चाहिए जिसमे पत्रकारिता का एक धंधे में रूपांतरण हो चुका है अपने  मिशनरी स्वरूप से. ये बात भी हमको नहीं भूलनी चाहिए कि पारंपरिक मीडिया से जुड़े पत्रकार और संपादक आज के समय में किसी भी मुद्दे पे भ्रामक और स्वार्थपरक  रूख रखते है. नीरा राडिया जैसे लोगो का दखल और प्रायोजित सम्पादकीय इसके सर्वोत्तम उदाहरण  है.

इसका दूसरा उदाहरण विदेशी अखबार और मैगजीन है. इन सम्मानित समाचार पत्रों में अगर आप भारत से जुडी खबर पढ़े तो आपको विदेशी पत्रकारों का मनमाना और पक्षपातपूर्ण रूख  द्रष्टिगोचर हो जाएगा.  इसके बाद   भी विदेशी मीडिया समूह अपनी निष्पक्षता और पारदर्शिता का हर तरफ बखान करता है. अधिकाँश ब्लॉगर किसी  बाहरी दबाव से मुक्त होते है. इनपे किसी का जोर नहीं कि किसी मुद्दे को ये ख़ास नज़रिए से देखे. इनको मुद्दे को किसी भी दृष्टिकोण से प्रस्तुत करने की आज़ादी रहती  है. ये अलग बात है कि सहज मानवीय  गुण दोषों से ये भी संचालित होते है और किसी के प्रभाव में आ कर स्वार्थ से संचालित हो सकते है.  

ब्लॉग्स पर एक समझदार आदमी ज्यादा भरोसा करता है!

ब्लॉग्स पर एक समझदार आदमी ज्यादा भरोसा करता है!

इस बात को पूरी तरह से खारिज किया जा सकता है कि किसी को एक अच्छे लेखक या पत्रकार के रूप में उभरने के लिए पत्रकारिता संस्थान  से जुड़ना अनिवार्य होता है. ये विचार हास्यास्पद है कि अच्छा लिखने की कला का विकास पत्रकारिता संस्थान से जुड़कर होता है.  एक उन्नत बोध जो समाचार के तत्त्वों से वाकिफ हो उसको आप कैसे किसी के अन्दर डाल सकते है ?  इस तरह के बोध का उत्पादन थोड़े ही किया जा सकता है पत्रकारिता संस्थानों के अन्दर.  ये बताना बहुत आवश्यक है कि ये आधुनिक समय की देन है कि लोग पत्रकारिता की डिग्री को अनिवार्यता मान बैठे है. यही वजह है की कुकुरमुत्ते की तरह पत्रकारिता संस्थानों की बाढ़ आ गयी है भारत में जो पत्रकार बनने की आस लिए युवको का शोषण कर रहे है.

खैर इसका मतलब ये नहीं कि पत्रकारिता से जुड़े अच्छे संस्थानों का कोई मोल नहीं. मेरा सिर्फ ये कहना है कि सिर्फ इस आधार पे ब्लॉगर और पत्रकार में भेद किया जाना उचित नहीं कि एक के पास डिग्री है और दूसरे के पास नहीं है.ब्लॉगर के पास अनुभव का विशाल खज़ाना होता है जिसकी अनदेखी सिर्फ इस वजह से नहीं की जा सकती कि इसने  किसी पत्रकारिता संस्थान से कोर्स नहीं  किया है !

अंत में यही कहूँगा कि ब्लॉगर को  पत्रकार बनने की लालसा से रहित होकर लगातार उत्कृष्ट कार्य करते रहना चाहिए, बेहतरीन मापदंड स्थापित करते रहना चाहिए. ब्लॉगर को ये नहीं भूलना चाहिए कि वे सड़ गल चुकी पारंपरिक मीडिया से इतर एक  बेहतर विकल्प के रूप में उभरे है.  इनको  पत्रकारों के समूह और मीडिया प्रकाशनों में व्याप्त  गलत तौर तरीको से बच के रहने  की जरूरत है. ब्लॉगर ये कभी ना भूले कि उसे पत्रकार जैसा नहीं वरन पत्रकार से बेहतर बनना है.

ब्लॉगिंग के महत्त्व को सब प्रतिष्ठित प्रकाशनों ने एकमत से स्वीकार किया है.

A Calling Higher Than Journalist

My Recent Write-Ups Which Appeared In Blogosphere As Well As In Mainstream Media!

It’s quite a strenuous affair to be sandwiched between demands of social media and mainstream media. Both the mediums in our times have attained new heights. However, it’s a great accomplishment if a writer/journalist is getting sufficient space in both the mediums at the same time. Fortunately, my writings managed to appear in mainstream publications without much canvassing on my part. I never had to heed to confrontational attitude to convince the editors from mainstream media to understand the relevance of writings which had first appeared in virtual world. 

That’s because before I moved to virtual world I had already found space as Writer/Contributor/Freelancer/Letter Columnist in all leading national and International publications which include Time, Newsweek, The Hindu, The Telegraph, The Statesman, The Times of India, The Hindustan Times, India Today, Outlook, The Week, Harmony, The Sunday Indian, Hardnews, Critique, Tehelka, Northern India Patrika and Soham, to name a few. Today when I have primarily got confined to virtual space, the write-ups still appear in Northern India Patrika- a leading newspaper published from Allahabad. It’s one of the oldest newspapers published in India, being sister publication of now defunct Amrit Bazar Patrika (Kolkata) which had started in 1868.

Recent write-ups which appeared in mainstream media:

A Discussion On Future Of Journalism

What's The  Future Of Print Media?

What’s The Future Of Print Media?

Very recently, some of the writers and journalists furiously got involved in a discussion related with future of journalism on LinkedIn website. Most of us were of the opinion that arrival of newer mediums like Internet has hit hard practices related with old school of journalism. In my eye own eyes, the future doesn’t seem bright unless it prepares itself well to imbibe new changes. The old mindset must give way to better one in league with recent patterns. The problem is that journalists and media groups, belonging to previous generations, treat the rise of bloggers and citizen journalism as wrong phenomenon in the world of journalism. They are not   open to create a balance between the old forms of journalism with newer methods of news presentation. That does not seem to be the case since old heads continue to remain skeptical.

However, my main concern in the debate was related with the survival of people seriously involved in the field of journalism. It’s harsh reality that even after introduction of dynamic medium like Internet, the economic scenario for talented souls remains grim.   So if we are not paying them well, I wonder who would dare to be methodical and research oriented? Who would really bother to add new dimensions in the qualitative standards? So my point of view is that let’s not only provide these new methods appropriate space but also ensure that financially they enjoy a stable position, if not strong.

That’s what some of us said on the prestigious   “Online  Reporters And Editors” forum.

Arvind K.Pandey, Writer/Freelancer, Allahabad, India:   

“Time changes everything except something within us which is always surprised by change.” (Thomas Hardy) The future is surely bright, only if journalists learn to maintain pace with changes taking place in the world of news and views! Sadly, we waste our precious time in mindless criticism of the recent trends, unleashed by the intervention of Internet. And why are we not discussing about the exploitation of journalists? They are paid so less by the media houses even as they come to deliver quality reports in short time. In fact, reporters, belonging to both online and print section, are the most harassed lot in term of monetary benefits. For media houses, it appears such a pathetic situation means nothing as they have kept deepening the insecurities in media sector.

How can future be bright when there is a sword hanging over your head in terms of job security? 

One should not forget that journalists working for NYT, CBS, CNN, Fox News Channel and etc. are the ones exhibiting high journalistic standards! Yet they compromise with truth, and give way to biases of all sorts! Against this backdrop, when we start hating new alternatives, the future of journalism becomes more complicated and grave.

Paul Ivice, Writing Coach And Editor For Freelancers, Palm City, Florida, USA:


Arvind, the fact that you mention Fox News Channel in the same breath with the others indicates that you lack an understanding of both high journalistic standards and the way that media people can insert bias into their reporting, because FNC has taken biased reporting to an entirely new and shameful level.

Arvind K.Pandey, Writer/Freelancer, Allahabad, India:

@ Paul

I have taken note of the situation from Indian eyes! The subtle difference that you highlight is not of much importance to me just the way difference between Star TV India’s approach and Zee TV’s approach remains unnoticed by you, and, above all, is not of much importance to you unless you are based in India! And yes, you missed something very important. When I placed all of them in one category, it was to show that even when trained journalists from old school of journalism are involved the chances are high that news reports could be biased, twisted and incomplete. If that’s the case, there is little merit in condemning people belonging to new forms of news presentation.

Paul Ivice, Writing Coach And Editor For Freelancers, Palm City, Florida, USA:

@Arvind

I am familiar with neither Star TV nor Zee TV in Indian, but if you say the difference between them is subtle, then you have no clue about the difference between Fox News Channel and almost every other mainstream media outlet in the USA, biased or not.

Arvind K.Pandey, Writer/Freelancer, Allahabad, India:

@Paul

The operative part of my comment is not my so-called ignorance about US media. The question that really matters is that how come trained journalist having faith in objectivity, accuracy and other fine values created such a mess of extraordinary type, which has compelled all of us to discuss the future of journalism? It’s their biases and partisan approach, which eroded the faith of readers/viewers in print media/news channels.

Simon Morice, Media Production,Southampton, United Kingdom:

The truth, Arvind, is that news journalism is expensive, and unless it has the luxury of a hands off sponsor then the power of ownership will influence it. There is a wider context and this is no new development. In the dying days of the nineteenth century, Adolph Ochs purchased an ailing New York Times. He turned it around on the strength of great journalism and producing ‘All the news that’s fit to print’. People would happily pay for good, not just sensational, information about human affairs. And advertising revenues followed too. The NYT went on to achieve preeminence in the world beyond New York, and other papers copied its example. 

But then the news, which had honestly monitored and spoken to power for so long became power itself. Advertising revenue began to exceed that which was derived from serving its audience with integrity and excellent journalism. The audience became a market, a conflict was born between fiduciary responsibility and integrity, the newsroom and marketing department began sharing elevators – and the mess which you perceive was made – all over again. 

Recently, we have seen the rise of Al Jazeera as, probably, the world’s most respected news organisation. In the same epoch, the leadership aspirations of both the NYT and the Guardian appear to hark back to the values of great journalism. But while Al Jazeera may depend on the stringless resources of Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the Guardian and the New York Times must trade their way to the high ground again. Audiences and journalists alike live in an interregnum of chaos.

Paul Ivice, Writing Coach And Editor For Freelancers, Palm City, Florida, USA:

Arvind, the “mess” you refer to is almost entirely attributed to electronic media’s pursuit of the almighty dollar, though with some exceptions I don’t consider electronic media to be journalists as much as entertainers. What biases show up in the reporting of print media, I think, resulted mostly from their misguided effort to pander to the same nitwits among the populace who think a combination of celebrity news and opinion is journalism. It is an unfortunate path that is taken when profits outweigh principle.

Some hate the rise  of newer alternatives!

The journalistic fraternity should learn to truly honour the bloggers

Traditional Media vs Blogosphere

Traditional Media vs Blogosphere

Well, it appears emergence of bloggers have really unsettled journalists and media groups. I say so because they love to indulge in snide insinuations about the bloggers, which speak volume about their insecurities. I had been part of journalistic fraternity and, therefore, know quite well about the type of work done inside newspaper office. I agree that journalists follow a refined work culture, which lays stress on “accuracy, a critical sense, balance “and divergent view-points.  However, it’s really tough to understand how come presence of certain aspects in one circle leads to absence of same aspects in other circle following a different modus operandi? It really defies logic that while highlighting the good features of traditional media, it’s been assumed that media in its new avatara (emergence of blogosphere) lacks credibility and substance. 

The truth is that bloggers have emerged as better alternative because traditional media betrayed the faith imposed on them by the readers. It’s now very clear that newspapers/electronic media take stand according to their political affiliations. Most news is now sponsored news. And that’s the reason why bloggers emerged on the surface. You cannot fool all the people all the time. Okay, the journalists are taking total care of language errors, factual accuracy and etc. but these are of little use if the end product is flawed one! I think none of the gentlemen participating in the debate came to throw light on the unholy nexus between journalists, politicians and business tycoons. True,  great power is always in tandem with great responsibility and I am pretty sure that bloggers would learn all the tricks necessary to present news items in better way. In fact, they have already done some wonderful work. It’s now undeniable that citizens have finally found a medium to express views close to the reality. Or else, they were left at the mercy of big media brands who offered only half truths in name of truth! 

Anyway, when I appreciate the good work done by the bloggers, I do not assume (like my friends in newspaper world) that everything is wrong about the traditional media and people associated with them. They have certainly set good precedents. But my main worry is that will the bloggers be able to keep themselves above the flaws found in traditional media landscape? Will they be able to use in fair way privileges enjoyed by them? Or will they become monkey with a razor blade? Let’s leave it on time. In the end, I must inform my friends that in many countries, including India, new IT laws have been introduced to make bloggers more responsible.  In other words, they are being tamed in name of acting with responsibility.    

 

 If bloggers have still to learn a lot from journalists, if they are still novice and if they are still inexperienced I wish to know why all prominent magazines, newspapers, websites and web editions of prominent magazines are placing views of bloggers side-by-side views of their own writers/journalists on important pages? In India nearly all news papers have either introduced regular columns for bloggers or they are borrowing articles from them. If bloggers or blogging still lack required credibility, I wish to know why many journalists have become bloggers?  Why are they playing the role of blogger? Why blog columns have been introduced by prominent magazines like Time, Newsweek, New York Times and etc.? 

Lastly, it really sounds ludicrous when I notice that veteran journalists speak aloud about superiority of their ilk only because they have received certain training and they have got few qualifications. That gives them right not to acknowledge the traces of good writer and journalist in a person who did not become like them but instead became a blogger! In other words, if one becomes a blogger one loses the right to emerge as person of substance; after all, how dare one wrote beautiful articles, prepared brilliant news reports without qualification and training! This rigid insistence is a weak (and shrewd as well) attempt to maintain their superiority complex and monopoly, which in any case is destined to be crashed in new scenario that has emerged.  

Anyway, I am just trying to establish that qualifications and training are not the only or ultimate parameter to measure the worth of a blogger. The ultimate parameter is the qualitative output a blogger delivers even as the blogger is devoid of critical resources, key infrastructure, financial gain and reward. On the contrary, a journalist enjoys all this advantages. The blogger, on the other hand, is most of time, a selfless crusader. So it really hurts that instead of being honoured, the blogger’s good work is ignored citing absence of training/qualification. I wish to know will they dare to dismiss the greatest  performances of many actors, singers, sportsmen and businessmen, to name a few,  only because they did all that not with help of  training and qualification but  with help of  natural talent provided by the almighty Lord? Will the future generations refuse to acknowledge their worth only because they did not attend Business College, Acting College, Fine Arts College and etc? Please think over it carefully.

No need for a blogger to be like a journalist

The difference between blogger and journalist should exist

The difference between blogger and journalist should exist

In one of the recent discussions on a prominent LinkedIn forum, some participants representing prestigious journalistic bodies were of the opinion that bloggers lack the expertise which is found in the journalists. They conveyed the impression that since journalists get trained at recognized school of journalism, they display a better critical sense, exhibit better style and react in more mature way. That makes them a greater and more respectable entity than a blogger. However, in my eyes, they missed an important aspect: Why should a blogger be interested in emerging as a good journalist?

It can be easily understood that rising importance of bloggers and their ever-increasing influence have unsettled their counterparts in journalistic circles. However, I am not interested in being at loggerheads with them. I am, at present, more interested in making bloggers aware of the fact that instead of aspiring to emerge as a good journalist, it’s time to acknowledge the uniqueness associated with blogging and how to use it well to do justice with critical issues.

The difference between them should exist even as both come to use similar method and approach while dealing with sensitive issues. The bloggers should not be coloured in the traits which has made journalism a profession instead of a mission! One cannot overlook the fact that journalists or editors having a developed critical sense often display biased approach while framing the perspective.

For instance, if one reads India related news items in reputed foreign magazines one would always notice prejudices of foreign correspondents. Still they boast of impartiality and transparency! The bloggers, more often than not, are free from external pressures to view the issue from a particular angle only. They are free to present the issue as it is. It’s another thing that being human they give way to prejudiced opinions.

I strongly dismiss the views which suggest that it’s necessary to be part of journalistic institution to emerge as a good writer or good journalist. The ability to write a perfect piece cannot be nurtured within journalistic institutions. A good news sense cannot be manufactured. In fact, it’s a recent trend to have a degree from journalistic institution. That’s one of the reasons why many journalistic institutions have come in origin in India, which are fooling the wannabe journalists.

Anyway, that’s not an attempt to ignore the role of good institutes but I am against any division based on this assumption that journalists are better since they have honed their skills at some institute. Bloggers, too, have their own share of unique experiences which cannot be overlooked only because they have not attended any journalistic institution!

Anyway, let the blogger set good precedents without the desire to emerge as a good journalist. After all, the bloggers have emerged as a better alternative to biased media. There is no need for them to copycat mannerism prevalent in the journalistic circles. The bloggers should aim to be better than journalists instead of being like them!
