Setting the Stage for Whitewashing

While the army is still trying to gun ‘em down, the media has outgunned them by embarking on the mandatory yarn-spinning. Read this and participate in my outrage.

What baffles the security agencies is the sacred thread tied on his wrist which many say could be a plot to show that the attack was undertaken by probably an extreme Hindu group.

Coming from Turdesai’s horse-stable, this is obvious. But Turdesai could have at least waited. Like greedy children fighting over the dead, wealthy father’s wealth before the corpse has even turned cold, the secular media is in a hurry to proclaim, I spun it first!

Congratulations ladies and gentlemen. This is conclusive proof of whose side the Indian mainstream media is on.

    My take on why CNN-IBN and NDTV has gained credibility. As people we have always looked upon english speakers as more knowledgeable than the ones that do not speak the language. when well dressed and modern looking men and women speak english without a hiccup, most of our non-english speaking public develop credibility (due to our defeciency in speaking the language so fluently). our non-english speaking public beleve them to be true. I was a culprit of this once as i believe everword these people uttered on TV. Due to the already set in credibility factor, i did not pay attention to what their motives could be. Now it is all clear…

    Another feature of english channels, is they have to distance themselves from the common public wearing bindis on their forehead and who have blind faith in the existence that it will all be taken care of (Hindu philosophy). They do this by shunning anythign Indian in their appearance and distance themselves by bashing the common man i described above. Only by distancing themselves from teh common man, they can show their affinity towards the sponsors that mainly target english speaking audience. English media have distanced themselves from the humble, modest Hindu that wears his faith on his sleeve (and in their foreheads). ELM’s are meaningless. But, that humble man, believes the ELM’s due to them looking cool and appearing to be credible.

    any of you in bangalore? a candle light march being planned this sunday, to show anger at ‘politicians’. can expect media, and can expect a carefully choreographed show aimed at select ‘politicians’.

    those in bangalore, young, bravehearts, how about showing up at this event with some posters of the real ‘politicians’ that we need to be mad about? and engage the media if they show up?

    >>The father of unbiased English Media in India, The bhishma Pitamah of Indian nationalist movement’s Intellectual discourse Shri Arun Shourie writes- http://www.indianexpress.com/news/surprised/392625/1

    Shourie says what I have been saying for long, to wit:

    “Human rights? Yes, we will respect the human rights of the terrorists and their sponsors and their local supporters to the extent that they respect the human rights of our people.”

    In this context, it is worthwhile to recall the incarceration of Gujarat cop Vanzara. He eliminated a terrorist before the terrorist struck. We eulogize Karkare, NSG etc today, and rightly so, but Vanzara is languishing in custody for getting rid of a terrorist. A bunch of crypto-jihadis is gunning for his neck with legal activism. Guess who is helping them along? The Gujarat government, trying to show that it is even more concerned about “human rights” than they.

    Yoginder Sikand: “Whether the attacks were indeed the handiwork of the Lashkar, as is being alleged, or of some other agency, such as the CIA and the Israseli Mossad, as others believe, remains to be fully investigated ..”

    >>see also how the debate has moved to politicians and politicizing the terror.

    Debate is happening on internet and on the blogs. Tamasha is happening on “mainstream” media. Change the way you look at things!

    >>Hope next time the terrorists seize the NDTV and CNN-IBN office.

    Why will they? They let off a couple of Turks after the latter identified themselves.

    You all have to watch “We the People” and the way Simi Garewaal got bashed up verbally for speaking the truth. Media lives in a denial mode. Hope next time the terrorists seize the NDTV and CNN-IBN office. They will get the first hand opportunity to show their secularism to the world.

    Absolutely. All the Bollywood dumbos are targeting the BJP and not hauling up the Congis. Even Dilip has done the same. The rediff journo Suiparn Verma also is angry – but targets only Modi and spreading the lie that the widow refised his offer.

    But apart from all this. IS there any relief fund set up especially for the NSG where all of us can contribute – ordinary people. I think such an endeavour is possible. Give it a thought guys. Any help in this regards will be useful.

    see also how the debate has moved to politicians and politicizing the terror. Instead of tackling the problem in hand, the focus has become how to ‘non-politicize’ the terror. The great Karan Johhar has this to say ‘kudos to NSG and bash the politicians’ (meaning BJP). So, how are we guys going to tackle the proble, if the medica hijacks the issues towards politicians… Coming to think of it, I It goes without saying that Cong has government cant even run a golf club, let alone a country… But, it is strange to see that BJP is being criticized for critizing the Congress government. English Media is making a fools out of us.
