He highlighted the concerns over the rise of tabloid journalism, paid news, and fake news, causing distress among committed journalists. Dr. Vishwas shared that the book, published by Vani Prakashan, New Delhi, includes studies of cases related to media ethics violations.

To maintain high standards of journalism, a media code of conduct must be upheld.
