The Broken News depicts the rivalry between two Indian news channels based in Mumbai – ‘Awaaz Bharati’ and ‘Josh 24/7’. It reveals the lives, lies, loves and struggles of a dynamic group of journalists. Awaaz Bharati a news outlet headed by Amina Qureshi, an extremely credible editor who believes in ethics of journalism. But channel is perennially cash-strapped and bleeding. Josh 24/7, headed by Dipankar Sanyal is India’s no.1 channel, according to TRPs but is sensationalist, and doesn’t always bother to check its facts. The only things that matter to Josh 24/7 are eyeballs and viewership, hence they have power and are minting money. Between these two extremes is Radha Bhargava. The show reveals all their lives as they attempt to balance work and leisure, ambition and integrity, amid the never-ending pressure of the news cycle and an industry trying to be one step ahead yet facing an uncertain future.


The two minutes, twenty-six second trailer shows involvement of media in destabilising a government. It also raises concerns over journalists fighting against each other due to personal animosities, rather than seeking truth and justice. The Vinay Vaikul directorial gives a glimpse into the interlink between politicians and media, which has the ability to influence the future of elections. The conflict between the idealistic editor Ameena of Awaaz Bharti and the TRP-hungry Dipankar, who heads Josh24X7, is also set to become darker in the new season.
