Birth And Vision
Getting stanchly disenchanted with mainstream journalism culture, a young scribe gave a serious thought to build an alternative and unconventional journalism in the state of Karnataka. Samachara does not have a glittering story to narrate about its birth. The Samachara was started in a single room with one laptop. However, the first story published for the launch of the website was investigative news story. Prior going on air, small-scale promotional activities were carried out in social media, Facebook.
A key aim of the Samachara is to spell change in the arena of journalism which is disproportionately market-driven and marred with unethical practices. Samachara feels change can happen only at a right time with the coming together of right minds having genuine ideas.
We are presently at a time of frenzied reportage, fabricated information dissimilation and commodification of journalism. The ethics of media is being purchased by vested interests through monetary luring in order to satisfy the apatite of power. The corruption is rooting strongly in the news rooms eventually rotting the entire system of journalism. Samachara envisions setting a new standard for journalism discourse in the digital platform.
