Arun-JaitleyNew Delhi,September 29,2015-Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Tuesday said the news channels in the country are not able to present the view of the masses with only 20 to 25 selected guests appearing on television shows on a regular basis, and added that it is an opportunity for print media to strike back and focus on serious news analysis.

Taking part in the launch of a national news magazine, Opinion Post, Jaitley said: "The news reader is always looking for the right news. We see same selected 20 to 25 faces(guests) appearing on television shows on a regular basis and only their views are brought into light, but there are many more people who are looking for some serious analysis of news."

"Very often the digital media is giving importance to this(serious news analysis). I think, it is an opportunity for serious print media to strike back. The readers are only looking for serious news and serious views."(ANI)
