Dead Mediaah Walking

So this isn't a personal post, but something I feel personally about, nonetheless.

mediaah! was arguably the first Indian media watchdog blog, and certainly the first one where the blogger put the name on his birth certificate up there for all to see: Pradyuman Maheshwari.

He has been served a legal notice about content on mediaah!. On his blog he said:
"Yesterday, we got another legal notice. It was from one of the better known media conglomerates from the country, asking us to delete some 19 posts on Mediaah! as also refrain from writing about it in future. This isn't the first time we've had a problem with media companies taking us on. In the last couple of months this is the second legal notice and not to mention a media baron asking us to apologise for what was termed an insulting post." *

There is a petition afoot, for the dropping of the legal notice against Pradyuman.

Sign The Petition: Free Mediaah!*
