Spotlight is alive

I still remember clearly the thoughts in my head after I watched the movie Spotlight. It was a perfect 2 hours and 8 minutes – an ideal romantic image of what journalism should be like.

HIGH IMPACT JOURNEY: Destination New York meeting the News Dons.

These are news organizations I have admired from thousands of miles away. They have their own flaws but comparably these are the hall mark of journalism, because no institution is perfect. It’s debatable though.

Here I was face to face with Dan Rather. Was I star struck? Yes, like my other colleagues only we kept our cool. This is the man who has done it all in TV.
