In some countries, powerful journalists who are critical are feared by the rulers

The extremely systematic and expensive murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi exposes the fact that the media is feared by the rulers of some countries. It indicates the great power that the journalist has, his ability to influence public opinion about the country and its rulers if there are a large number of people who are reading what he writes

So the journalists who are featured in the mainstream media, like newspapers which have a readership of millions are closely monitored by indian intelligence agencies and are widely covered in the mainstream media. On the other hand, india has a very systematic way of censoring online content, those who are hated by raw/cbi will get almost no visitors for their websites.

In addition to identity theft, R&AW, cbi, ntro also ensure that the online publisher who is criticizing the government does not get any advertising, so the online publisher is making a loss, and will have to shut down, unless they have some other sources of income. Instead of taking the feedback or negative comments in a positive manner and trying to improve themselves, the rulers of some countries are extremely ruthless in trying to silence those who criticize them.
