Reena Singh I found this book immensely readable and the story seemed so very plausible, given that the fourth estate hasn't exactly crowned itself with glory. Corruption among a section of journalists is a reality; and their links with undesirable elements including the mafia is well within the realm of possibility.

The police does investigate such cases, but quite often their hands are tied, because the political bosses are reluctant to take action against such scribes. The arrest of a journalist with alleged links with the underworld, makes The Newsroom Mafia, a really relevant book. Whether the journalist is really guilty of such links or it's a police frame up is still to be ascertained.

I would recommend The Newsroom Mafia as a must read!
