Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan openly asked his fans and followers to boycott yellow media. He stated that TV9 and Andhra Jyothi were hugely biased towards Telugu Desam Party and are abusing their opponents.

Pawan’s fans seem to have taken his comments seriously and that is clearly showing its effects on the media houses. The facebook rating of TV9 Telugu has gone down drastically. The page is rated with 1.1 stars and that shows the amount of negativity that is spreading around the media house.

Interestingly, even the official TV9 application on the Google Play store is facing a similar situation. The app is rated with 1.6 stars as of now. A majority of the comments for this app read that the firm is following cheap tactics and damaging the reputation of journalism.

All in all, a noted media house in the Telugu states is facing the heat for their unethical acts over the past few days.
