The instances of media blackout in Tamil Nadu have been rising. It is a state where simply reporting news that does not suit the establishment can get you taken off air, as experienced by some news channels. At the heart of the government's power in controlling the media is the Tamil Nadu Arasu Cable TV Corporation Ltd's reach. Tamil Nadu's embattled media fraternity is finally coming together, planning a meeting next month to highlight the crisis. But given the climate of fear, it remains unclear how many representatives of TV channels will speak out at this event.
