Judiciary and media

1. Judiciary pandering to populist narratives or pressures is a dangerous and self destructive trend.

2. Judiciary is respected to be the umpire only on legality and constitutional validity of actions and issues and by extension has the onus of protecting welfare of society and environment.

3. Media is one more important business owned and/or sponsored and run by and for financial consideration supposedly giving information and opinions not necessarily impartial.

4. Why should judiciary anoint media as an omnipotent supra umpire and on put media on a pedestal higher than the elected representatives.

5. What if some media starts scrutinizing and publishing with mala fide intentions the details of incomes of all senior advocates, judge pre and post appointment as judges.
