Faizabad, Jan 19: Press Council of India (PCI) chairperson Justice G N Ray today warned the media against the forthcoming trouble if news was not kept from views and said in the world of globalisation, people with vested interests had ''handgripped' media's control.

''Electronic media, which should alert people about morality by being a controlling organisation, has become uncontrollable,'' Mr Ray said at the golden jubilee celebrations of a news daily here.

He said the media must hold the whip in delivering sensitive news...for maintaining its credibility. ''News should be kept away from views,'' he asserted.

Mr Ray said although, the PCI was not a sentence awarding organisation, the media should highlight its judgments made in several cases of dispute.
