For the most part, there is no Indian news media channels that have an international presence. What I am looking at are news channels like CNN, BBC or even the newer ones like Qatar's Al Jazeera, Russia's ITN and China's CCTV. There is no comparable brand that covers news events from the Indian viewpoint. While small wealthy countries like Qatar and our neihgbours like China and Russia have realised the importance of having a brandname news channels. We seem to be happy with the popularity of Indian movies and "Kyu ki Saas bhi Bahu thi" serials. To start of, here is a news report, of CCTV making a presecence in the middle east and its plan to start a dedicated regional bereau and an arabic language channel in Dubai where India has always had a legup. Isn't it time that Indian news channels start covering international events and model news channels more professionally to compete with CNN, BBC, AJE, CCTV and so on. And also cover major languages other than just English to let our point of view be heard. There could be a spanish language channel to cover Latin America, Arabic langauge channel to cover West Asia/North Africa and so on.
