Many top editors here are autocratic in their behaviour with the journalists in their publications/channels. And that is such a shame as it makes the profession of journalism more vulnerable to internal moral corruption, ethics' degradation and exploitation by the outside world of companies, politicians, bureaucrats and other state organs.
It is not that these editors don't have the ability to acquire good leadership qualities. But their inflated egos or severe insecurities make it difficult for them. They are able to get away there is absolutely no one above them overseeing the process and holding them accountable for their unhealthy behaviour. Quite many of them even consciously operate under the assumption that they do not need to have any good leadership skills.
This is not say that similar regressive attitudes are not found in junior editors and journalists. But the top 2-4 editors have a complete control over operations and therefore inflict the most severe damage on the profession of journalism. Anyway, I hope that at least some of them are able to overcome their egos/insecurities for the betterment of Indian journalism.
