During his address at the first annual state conference of the Tripura Newspaper Society, Saha said people used to read newspapers more in the past and the trend has changed because they don’t have the time and also due to the rise of social media. (File)Tripura Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha Wednesday pointed out the weakening of the traditional way people consume news and said journalists should be cautious of the onslaught they are facing from social media.

Manik Saha also assured journalists they could report without fear even if they have to publish reports against the government.

During his address at the first annual state conference of the Tripura Newspaper Society, Saha said people used to read newspapers more in the past and the trend has changed because they don’t have the time and also due to the rise of social media.

“A speaker here was saying that only 25 per cent readership is still attached with newspapers. TV channels have faced a nearly 45 per cent reduction in viewership and there is a significant rise in social media platforms. This is because earlier we had a lot of time and used to read many newspapers. Now, people watch things on mobile screens due to a shortage of time. You should be concerned about being extinct,” said the chief minister.

Saha’s comments came after senior journalists and editors at the conference said newspapers and reporters have been facing attacks—during the erstwhile Left Front regime and since 2018 when the incumbent BJP-led government came to power.
