Editorial variability in reporting!

The two main news items on one particular day were the abolition of use of red light beacons in automobiles except in ambulances, fire engines or police vehicles and the conspiracy charge against  some national leaders over  demolition of the Babri Masjid about 25 years back. 

Look at how four english national dailies report them in their front page. It speaks of the variable editorial perception and the way each paper interprets the situation through its own political or social perspective. 

This is the story of the news reporting in media! 

We need to apply our perception to interpret the news and not go by what is reported! News reporting needs more fairness! I have a sense that it was lot better neutral and no-partisan in the past!
