Distractions and Headline Management

“Hi sir, since your’e such a fierce critic, I assume this time our Vadra Exclusive gets some credit from you?”

When I was reading a tweet of Barkha Dutt, the line “I assume this time our Vadra Exclusive gets some credit” caused enough discomfort within me. She was asking Minhaz Merchant, acknowledgement of her efforts to expose Vadra benami property in London. When I heard her name first time in Radia Tapes, even then I felt she will do no wrong, but now Barkha, you let me down.

Who taught you this kind of journalism Barkha? You broke the story, great! You are known for breaking greatest news breaks but never seen you fighting with trolls and news portal for credit & correctness. Your begging for credit to Minhaz Merchant is so ugly. Why all this? to get in good books of a man who incidentally happen to be PM of country, through brokers like Minhaz, Suhel and another one who happens to good for nothing FM of country!

I would really appreciate if someone does a job & follows it up until Vadra lands in Jail. But, since last few years what I see is Vadra too has become essential ingredient of Headline Management. Use him for the headline, do a story for two days and then run for another headline. The kind of cacophony coming out from your twitter handle is totally unpleasant and looks like you are doing overtime to please somebody.

From NDTV Group Editor you moved to Consulting Editor; are you thinking, this regime of illiterate & clueless will be there for another three years or they may get elected again, so what next? World will not end, don’t worry, you have to do things you are known for doing it fearlessly and that is “Journalism”

You broke the story, leave it in public domain and move on. Fight with news portals over who is correct, begging for credit to irrelevant people; doesn’t suits to Barkha Dutt I knew. Take it or leave it.

“I am an artist I was shooting & was not aware about it. Akhilesh Yadav should take care of law & order: Hema Malini”

Hema Malini’s statement shows utmost insensitivity and indifference towards people. She was involved in a car mishap where a man died and she left the scene without caring for the daughter of dead man! Nothing wrong in her statement, “Akhilesh Yadav should take care of law & order”. It gives me immense hope that someday she will ask “Narendra Modi should have taken care of law & order in 2002” and Narcissist must come out of self & selfie fever to take care of “Law & Order of India”

Of course Akhilesh administration is responsible for all shortfalls but Hema Malini, you are elected MP of Mathura, can’t you at least show some sensitivity and empathy?  The fault lies in current party leadership and is not fault of Hema Malini alone. The party with difference has now became party with indifference. They don’t care who suffers and who gets killed, they care only, is this case help us to get one step closer to power somewhere? That’s what exactly a Gujarat Model in Delhi now.

Thanks to TV Media, Mathura tragedy for turning it in troll fight to conclude who is responsible, Akhilesh or Hema Malini! This shows the maturity of current generation journalists. Discussion should have been on what Govt and intelligence agencies of this country were doing when followers of Baba Jai Gurudev were stocking killer artillery & infantry? Was it all instant reaction? Imagine if this would have happened at some Madrasa or Church or Gurudwara! Surprising as no intellectuals discussing & debating “What about Mathura”.

“MEA to approach UK for Lalit Modi’s extradition after ED response – The Economic Times”

Since 2014 we hear same news by rearrangement of few phrases. We have a BJP CM in Rajasthan who is close pal of Lalit, who helps him to become President of Rajasthan Cricket Association. We have an efficient & kind heart EAM in center who helps fugitives on humanitarian ground. Note that, if extradition happens, it will be also on humanitarian grounds. Though LKM trolls Clueless FM very badly but he is a good friend of Narcissist and  funded BJP campaigns, so be rest assured that nothing is going to happen as per rule of law with LKM. If any notice issued to him will be termed as error by Jr. Officer same as we allowed Vijay Mallya to flee.

“Modi govt’s second anniversary, Italian marine gets bail”

This was the biggest gift in waiting for India, specially for people of Kerala. For one head, we will bring ten heads, foul mouths bowed down and lastly blamed it to International pressure and Supreme Court of India. The Govt of power-hungry crooks, gave a declaration which can be termed as “No Objection Certificate”; in Supreme Court when court asked them what is their stand on Italian Marines. This was perfect barter deal between crooks of India and Italy. One need to recollect Augusta Westland and thereafter total silence in media about both issues. Why? and friends in media say, they are journalist! may be but think do you rise in your own eyes at the end of day? No. I know.

The so-called journalists must answer one day to nation, how you misled the country. Narcissist blown the trumpet for six long hours and you telecast it live on news channels, not one MSM guy has guts to question wastage of tax payers money? I got responses on my tweet that, it was profitable because feed has been sold to other channels and plenty of income came to Parasar Bharti. Losers, answer me, have you elected a PM Neta or Nautanki Abhineta?

Flipkart and L&T already shown the doors to fresh graduates before taking them in, and our PM claims “Yuvaon ki sarkar” raised fuel costs by 2.5, service tax to 15% and claims “Garibon ki sarkar”. Cheerleaders at 9:00PM always shout “Nation wants to Know” on non-issues but they are in fact far away from reality.

Honest journalists are rare species now and when we see someone going off track, it gives pain. Hope, people gone stray will be back on track and rise in own eyes!

Good Bye for now!
