Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that the “relatively static medium of print” is of special relevance during these times of great turmoil, marked by the media themselves making news and social media playing “an ever increasing role in all our lives.” He was speaking at the inauguration of the 90th year celebrations of Mathrubhumi daily here on Sunday. He said the newspaper was an example of journalism that had been trusted by people for 90 years. Dr. Singh said that these days of great turmoil were reported in great detail in the media and that the Internet had telescoped events into a degree unheard of in the past.
