    Re: Sentence correction

    No, it's a little off. Try:

    Journalists in different media organizations are against the ideologies of political parties they oppose.

    Re: Sentence correction

    Journalists in different media organizations are divided in their stance on the ideologies of the different political parties.

    There is no mention that they are only against those political parties they oppose.

    Re: Sentence correction

    Thank you all for the reply.

    This is the context:
    Some journalists in India (within a media organization) support economic development approach (capitalist) of the political party BJP, but are against its extremist religious ideology.
    Similarly, some journalists in India support secular ideology of the political party INC, but are against its economic development approach (leftist)

    Re: Sentence correction

    Journalists should be unbiased/impartial.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I think you should have started with that. Then you could have added: "Can I sum that up in one sentence?"

    Re: Sentence correction

    Wouldn't it be easier to just report the news rather than thinking that you have to take sides?

    Re: Sentence correction

    Perhaps:

    The journalists in India are having trouble deciding which political party to support. That's because they agree with some things about one party, but they disagree with other things about the same party. Similarly, with the other major party, they agree with some things and disagree with other things.
