Abstract

Journalists, in their profession, fulfill their duties while facing various challenging conditions. They often prioritize their commitment and responsibility over their own lives in many situations. This commitment extends to instances where their professional position exposes them to legal threats, placing them in the eye of the storm. The crucial question arises as to who will navigate the ship through this typhoon of trouble, assuming the role of the captain, as all eyes are on them. From a legal standpoint, this responsibility can be shouldered by a particular individual. In the context of Indian journalism, there have been instances when this specific individual had to stand in the dock multiple times to defend their fellow newshound associates. This study presents several case studies from the Indian legal landscape, aiming to assist journalism students and professionals in identifying who this unique individual might be. While a conclusive decision may not be reached, this critical overview seeks to plant an idea, urging experts to exercise caution in their work.
