New Delhi: Terming Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal's comments on media as irresponsible, the Broadcast Editors' Association (BEA) today said such “vague and sweeping” allegations were aimed at diluting the credibility of media which is discharging its responsibility in a fair and objective manner.
It said any aggrieved person should approach the self-regulatory institutions in media with specific complaints and evidence.
”BEA condemns Arvind Kejriwal's irresponsible statement on media. BEA believes that electronic media is discharging its responsibility in a fair and objective manner,” a statement released here said.
The Association said that it was wrong to say that TV channels are pursuing a biased agenda in favour of any person or party.
BEA believes that such attempts are a conspiracy to dilute the credibility of media, it added.
