I feel corruption and misendevours are also common among our Journalists like one of the charming Barkha dutt.Her daring explaination of NDTV about the R TAPES made her knowningly or unknowingly a participiant oof devils workshop mechanics.We recall her role in the bloody streets of Masuma in Srinagar,holding the injured head of Yaseen Malik too close to her chest.Sooner or later she started playing the game like N rAW OR WHO KNOWS CIA,MOSUD OR CIA agents.Her role in suspension of Vajpai-Mush accord too can be forgotten when she played a vimp along with her NDTV colleges.I am not convinced with her explaination as her changing colours and dinners or even proximity with people like R or gn azad can be without showering journalist favours to the big dalals of Indian political market.All of them have made the people of India,pakistan,kashmir to suffer.These indoors plays acts of journalists have costed this region division of India ,the prepatuvating dispute of kashmir and what not.Her phrase of Longiwal calls on Indra Ghandhi is the reality show of all our Journalists who like politicians have become thristy of bloody sketches.Hope she may clear my doubts.I know a women of her age in peer bag srinagar who resemble and appears to be twin sis of Barkha DUTT.sHE THE bd has a talent and an expression which can bring back indo-pak populace to the brace and grace through truth .
National English media - 90% of it is funded or backed by Cong(i),10% by CPI(M).. BJP is trying desperately to buy a few of them but then it has yet to learn to play this game.Given 10 more years, it will easily become as crooked as Cong(i) and will have its own mouth pieces like Cong(i)
Regional News media : 97%% of them owned by the regional politicl goondas/thugs.balance 3% owned by businessmen who will pimp for one goonda or a thug.
Indian middle class - Does not have cajones to be an out right crook but given half a chance, will easily piggy back on these political crooks.No wonder, they form the large part of those who watch/read indian media.
Indian rich class - No time to read or see as they are either busy scamming or partying
indian poor class - They have no clue what good governance is.So easy prey for one set of political goondas or the other.Mostly read / see vernacular which are owned by one set of crooks or other.So again short changed on quality opinion and thoughts.Cannon fodder for the ruling elite.
Indian youngsters - Busy trying to find a way out of this putrid country.Those who are left behind are busy trying to fatten their bamk balance.hardly have time or interest to understand what the real issues are.
future generation so what?
Least credible is obviously India today group whose chief editor "Prabhu Chawla" is a politician rather than journalist.
I had marked 'Other' with 'DNA' in my mind. I don't know how many people it reaches, but I found it marginally more reliable than others.
It might be very easy for some to dismiss the reliability of 'Pioneer', but in whatever news I have read up till now I did not feel that they make up facts, though their Editor-in-Chief is an RS member supported by the BJP. However, I have never read the entire hard copy of Pioneer for an extended period to make out if they try to suppress unsavory news involving/impacting the BJP.
I am not being frivolous when I say that it was a very difficult choice. I have found serious instances of biases literally with every media house/paper mentioned here (including DNA). I am extremely suspicious of intent and underlying message in the 'news' these guys present.
