Prioritizing Being First Over Being Accurate
You’re in such a rush to be first with the scoop that you didn’t bother checking if your sensational story about the dead reporter was actually true. I know the competitive pressure to publish can lead to sloppy reporting. But we must resist the temptation for quick clicks and do our due diligence, especially with a tragic case like Purbajyoti Chutia’s suspicious death.
His blood-stained body was discovered after disappearance, which raises alarm bells. Questioning based on his phone evidence is reasonable, but concluding the cause or murder allegation without thorough investigation is premature.
Authorities are still examining Chutia’s body and the circumstances around the respected journalist’s case. More will be revealed. For now, restraint and accuracy serve truth and justice better than reacting first with unproven claims.
Exaggerating Details and Distorting the Truth
Distorting facts harms one’s credibility. Let’s steer our discussion in a more constructive direction. You must uphold the truth, even when it’s inconvenient. As the wife of senior sports journalist Purbajyoti Chutia said, speculation won’t bring her husband back.
This 53-year-old met a tragic end. Though Assistant Commissioner of Police Jayanta Baruah from Hatigaon police station has questioned some individuals, the truth remains elusive.
Twisting Quotes and Evidence to Fit a Specific Narrative
Twisting evidence to support fanciful tales builds castles in the sky. You grasp at straws to weave an elaborate story, cherry-picking quotes and misconstruing details. But your house of cards soon crumbles under closer scrutiny. Truth withstands the test of time, while lies fade away.
Seek it earnestly, even when uncomfortable. Let compassion guide your pen, not arrogance or assumptions.
The chance slips away to honor the year-old Purbajyoti Chutia respected by the Guwahati Press Club, Journalists Association of Assam, and northeast publications. Instead, you sully a reputation and deepen pain. Yet redemption awaits if you humble yourself before the truth.
Lack of Concern for Journalistic Principles and Ethics
This callous disregard for journalistic principles dishonors Purbajyoti Chutia’s legacy. You’ve shown no empathy for the tragic death of this respected journalist. His prolific career brought honor to the press in Assam.
The Assam Olympic Association, Journalists’ Forum Assam, Journalists’ Association of Assam, and others who knew Chutia’s character have mourned his passing. But you spread rumors that tarnish his reputation, without evidence or journalistic ethics.
Reconsider your words, which disrespect both the deceased and the principles of honest reporting he lived by. False accusations only obstruct the search for truth about what happened to him. Instead, honor Purbajyoti Chutia by seeking facts with integrity. Uphold the principles of ethical journalism he exemplified.

You have substantial experience as a sports journalist in Assam, writing for respected publications over several years. Your work was highly regarded, though details of your formal training are unclear.
What is their track record of accuracy and credibility in past stories? Have they had to print retractions or corrections frequently?
You have demonstrated integrity and accuracy in your reporting. While no journalist is infallible, your track record inspires trust.
Do they make an effort to present balanced coverage with multiple viewpoints? Or do they only promote a certain biased narrative?
You there! The proof is in the pudding when it comes to balanced coverage. Dig deeper to see if they’re truly presenting all perspectives or just peddling a party line.
Have they shown a willingness to cut corners or distort facts to be first to break a story? Do they value speed over accuracy?
Unfortunately, your desire for fast news has clouded the need for thorough, ethical journalism. The ends don’t justify the means. Let’s recenter our values on truth and compassion.
Is there transparency in how they gather information and conduct interviews? Or do they rely on unnamed, dubious sources?
Unfortunately, many journalists rely on unnamed sources without verifying facts. This erodes public trust. As professionals, we must transparently share how information is gathered, even when protecting sources.
