Blackmail raj! After NDTV’s CBI troubles, Indian news channels are afraid of Modi govt like hell!

Is Modi govt blackmailing TV news channels.


CBI was careful not to drag in GE or NBC, against which is the main ED case, as sought by S Gurumurthy & others. Maybe Modi’s controllers would have been very upset.

Instead, they chose to snag NDTV in a pretty weak case involving ICICI Bank. No action on money laundering.

Still, the channels are so scared they are blaming the victim. When farmers in MP were protesting, the channels changed their tune after a while and claimed farmers were at fault.

Shouldn’t Nitin Gadkari resign after NHAI bribery scandal?

Are we to believe the minister did not take a cut?

Everything this proposes requires more than a lakh crore. Even 1‰ of a lakh crore is 1000 crore. Everyone knows that officials collect bribes on behalf of the minister. If they get caught, they can’t squeel on the politician because they are afraid of what will happen to them in police custody. The payments are usually routed benami beneficiaries of the minister anyway.

Given the furious pace with which the Public Private Partnership (PPP) have been going on, one can assume that’s the case.

Government infrastructure projects are usually slow because the minister & the officials under him are slow to clear subcontractor & supplier bills unless their palms are greased.

It is difficult to believe this guy who received numerous favours from corporate groups such as Essar has clean hands.

He shouldn’t be minister when investigations are going on.

It is quite likely that the CDM Smith bribery case is not a one-off occurrence. It must be systematic.

Lizard News – Loudmouth Arnab Goswami’s Republic TV is as annoying & non-professional as other Indian news channel

When will these channels be banned, the Nation wants to know?

Times Now was previously the worst news channel on TV. Now it has a competitor in the form of Republic TV, led by the same loudmouth Arnab Goswami. Media-buying agencies seem to be driving news channels stark raving mad. In order to retain maximum attention, the news channels dump all headlines on to the screen, which scream on to the screen, flash for a few seconds and disappear without a trace. Most of the time, there is no relation to the current news and the headlines floating all over the screen. With the launch of the new channel Republic, the madness continues.

Last year, I read online that Times Now had gone crazy with their burning issue thing. I did not immediately know what it meant. Some days later, I saw it for real on TV. They literally had Navika Kumar burning amidst graphics of flames all over the screen. To drive the point further, they was also a title “burning issue.” While it is “headlines” or “breaking news” for other channels, for Times Now it was “burning issue”, as if trying to sear it into our memories. The unabashed crudeness did not seem to have struck anyone in the Times Now crew.

So, What do you need to run a TV news channels?

  • Several people yelling like dogs.
  • The most garish gut-wrenching graphics!
  • Banners, tickers & popups everywhere trying to grab attention about news that probably never gets aired. (I change the channel.)
  • Breaking news headlines that doesn’t get covered until the next hour. If the next hour is a yelling match wait for another hour.
  • Annoying advertisements popping up in news tickers, popups & banners.

On this stupid republic TV, they may talk all the time about some big issue but that’s not the big issue. Main issue is Republic TV. Can you count how many times it is mentioned on the screen?

I hate to say it but why can’t Indian news channels learn something from foreign news channels? Of course, their judgement is just as impaired but their production values are much better. The journalist on the ground is not trying to shout all the way from the studio. The anchor, usually, is calmness-personified, not a nervous breathless jerk.

CNN offers advice to snowflakes psychologically injured by the news of Trump victory and Hillary loss.

Does it have to be so crappy?

Clips from Indian TV news channels making questionable viewership claims all the while trying to provoke war with Pakistan.

Every Indian news channel is suffering from the same syndrome. They are copying the worst from each other. On my DTH connection, I use the a la carte option and I don’t have Times New anymore. Instead, there is the free India Today channel. It is just like Times Now. Coverage on J&K is so bad that people there may soon have more beef against TV channels than against the Army.

This is all because of foreign-owned media-buying and TV-rating agencies. They want all advertising money to go to pet online properties owned by globalist reptilians. The long-term plan is to destroy traditional media in favour of closed-garden media shops.

Like hungry dogs fighting over a bone, Indian TV channels are being made to throw away all rules. Look at the online hashtags created by them – #MakePakPay & #BarbaricPak. These same media orgs have print newspapers. This sort of fight for crumbs does not exist there – although media rating agencies have tried to mess there to. In fact, with newspaper reader surveys they tried to initiate this sort of dog-eat-dog competition among newspapers. The tactic used is always the same – the beneficiary of the survey or that ratings tally is the leader. This makes it easier to starve and destroy the rest. Fortunately, for the Indian print media, this was not a problem, as readership has been increasing for all players. For TV companies, it has not been good because there are no reliable numbers on who is watching which channel. DTH companies would be able to reliable rating numbers if they provided a la carte options but many news channels are safely bundled with other channels so that any kind of audience measurement is impossible.

Why FBI’s Comey was fired by Donald Trump

“Yes, we will investigate if Russia had inappropriate contacts with Trump team. Hillary Clinton’s private server was… …only carelessness. We let her lawyers delete emails & smash her Blackberry devices. But, there was no criminal intent. So, I pronounce her Not Guilty!”

Clinton cheerleader Comey, clear out your desk.
