Media quiz: TV channels raid bars
Some TV channels are said to have attacked women as they left bars, claiming that they had engaged in sexual acts in the bar.
Media coverage of a bar in the town that was said to be open after 11:30 p.m. sparked strong reactions on social media, with journalists mainly targeting women and their life choices. Although the clip shows that the bar remained open after 11:30 pm on Sunday, the bar management said that it closed its doors on time. Police said that no case has been registered and the investigation is ongoing.
A senior police officer said: “We arrived at the scene after the bar management informed us that a group of men were trying to break into the store. As we sought to understand the situation, television networks also intervened. As the other guests at the bar left, news cameras began following them. An investigation is underway to determine whether the bar was open after 11:30 p.m. No FIR has been registered yet.
Some TV channels are said to have attacked women as they left bars, claiming that they had engaged in sexual acts in the bar. They also tried to capture the women’s faces and clothes, even as they fought to protect their privacy. Following a social media backlash from prominent figures like singer Chinmayi Sripada and former BJP member and actor Gayathri Raghuram, a news channel deleted his post.
But another TV news channel continued to broadcast these images. According to the bar’s management, the problem began when a group of six men arrived at the bar at closing time. When the administration announced that they would not be allowed in, the group caused a stir by trying to open the door and calling their friends in the media to “stir up the situation.” The group asked the bar to send the people sitting upside down.
To protect the other guests in the bar, we called the police and they let them out. However, the Tamil media took notice and started hounding the women who came out and tried to photograph their faces. Some journalists made derogatory remarks about women. “The main problem is not closing on time but refusing to allow the group to enter,” the management said. Police are investigating whether the bar closed on time. The file has not been saved yet
