Abstract:

The media coverage of the Mumbai terror incidents (between 26 and 28 November 2008) and their aftermath has been widely criticised for various reasons. Yet it is necessary not to frame these criticisms without understanding the structural models that drive news production ? which is subsumed largely to capital and is not free of political content.
