About Lab

Research at NewsLab is centered on the practice of journalism in the media-rich ecology of India, across the domains of news content and news practices. That is, we study journalism as a profession and how norms of its practice influence the processes of newsmaking and editorialization. Secondly, we analyze the eventual content that such news practices produce, in that, the convergences and divergences between stories which "make it" into our news diets vis a vis those that don't. A third and important aspect we study how variances between different “forms of media” produce variant narratives. In an increasingly polarising time, our aim is to study how the media becomes the inevitable driver of public opinion on a majority of issues and which powers determine so.
