Journalists, all if not most, have big egos. Probably including the guys who handle this blog. Maybe… Maybe!!!
It's more accentuated amongst the journalists on the field, though.
Quite understandable, as in the course of their vocation, these scribes rub shoulders with the high and the mighty, the famous and the notorious. It does inflate their ego, just as a zombie gets a high on dope, we suppose.
They expect special priviledges and at times (or may be quite often?) are brazenly demanding.
Yeah! After all we constitute the fourth estate and we have special rights, even if no statute on earth confers any such right on our shameless tribe.
Nowadays we find many journalists brazenly sporting the tag PRESS on their vehicles, and we must say it is quite distressing. Actually it is downright CHEAP.
It's high time the RTO and the police get their act together and shed any fears of journalists.
Journalists are not VIPs and they enjoy no priviledges. They only move around with a mighty halo around the heads.
We are not sure about this, but the Motor Vehicle Act does not allow any tom and dick to sport his title on the vehicle, least the journalists. Professionals like doctors may be an exception.
Can someone who is covering the RTO beat enlighten us on this fact?
