The Punjabi media based in USA and Canada is seemed to be deliberately biased against the Akali Dal and its leaders. Keeping all the credibility of journalism on stake, the Punjabi media of USA and Canada is busy in publishing one sided news stories on the basis of the allegations labelled against them by one or other NRIs.
Recently, a news was published by a Canada based Punjabi Online Web News Portal against Cabinet Minister Sohan Singh Thandal on the basis of the allegations labelled against him by an NRI Seetal Singh. The whole news story was published only on the basis of the allegations labelled by Seetal Singh against Sohan Singh Thandal and the news story was same an application or complaint submitted to the SSP Office. It seemed that no investigation was done for verifying the truthfulness of the allegations. The allegations may or may not be true but it was a one sided news story without the version of Sohan Singh Thandal. Thus, it was a deliberate attempt to defame Cabinet Minister Sohan Singh Thandal.
Many such other news stories are published daily by the USA & Canada based Punjabi media against the Akali leaders and others by totally compromising with the Principles of Journalism for their personal motives. This affect the credibility of all the media houses. So, the Punjabi media houses of USA and Canada, which work truly without compromising with the Principles of Journalism should raise voice against the biased media houses.
