Kunda Dixit is Publisher and Editor of Nepali Times.
He is one of the most respected media persons in Nepal and in the international community of critical and investigative journalism:
“The press freedom in Nepal is like a rollercoaster. It goes up and down”.
However, the real threats are the way the elected despots are muzzling the media. By trying to destroy the creditability of journalism, there is a huge need for the legacy media to be much faster in responding or commenting fake news and other negative news.
“They don’t need to kill journalists, they just kill journalism”, Kunda Dixit says.
