Self censorship at NDTV is a can of worms whose lid is prised open occasionally only to be tamped down again. But the most recent disclosure by Sreenivasan Jain a couple of days ago has led to a long outpouring by Barkha Dutt on her Facebook page about the selective censorship at that channel. And then another censored former colleague Nitin Gokhale who had quit the channel in 2014 after an interview with an outgoing Navy chief was not carried, is now speaking up too.                                              

Srinivasan Jain of NDTV posted on his Facebook page that a report by him and a colleague  on loans given to Jay Shah's companies was taken down from NDTV's website because the channel's lawyer said it needed to be removed for 'legal vetting'. He adds that it has still not been restored though  the report is based entirely on facts in the public domain  and "makes no unsubstantiated or unwarranted assertions". He says he is treating this as a distressing aberration and will continue reporting for NDTV.
