While approving the White Paper, the MAP comprising the editors of newspapers and heads of news channels unanimously resolved to take up the issues relating to attack on the media at the appropriate level and to ensure that neither the Government nor any other agency nor individual would be allowed to take the media for a ride and all the attackers shall be brought to books without further delay.

The Council resolved to take up all issues of physical assault on media men on duty and use of tactics of intimidation such as threatening and implication in concocted cases to cripple their free functioning.
