Some great person once said-
You can fool anyone, all the people all the time, if the media and Government cooperate.
Whatever is happening in Indian Politics is greatly influenced by media, especially by some dazed journalist and reports. The disparity in English and Hindi media leads to further confusion on any scam or scandal.
I am not of the opinion that all people sitting in media are not that responsible. Media has taken it’s responsibility to expose some great scams and raise many influential issues. But the ‘eye’ of the common man doesn’t see what the common man is seeing.
Recently, Shri Nitin Gadkari, President of the BJP, saw stars in daylight when he made a blunder by comparing Dawood Ibrahim and Swami Vivekanand, but in an irresponsible way. Gadkari was( or rather is) facing corruption charges, and this statement flashed on the bottom of our TV screens.
But when baba Ramdev copared Kasab’s hanging with Bhagat Singh’s Martyrdom, no media statements no breaking news flashes.
This is just one example. There are many more. I just want to tell people that we must think clearly before believing in Media’s reports because 1+1 is indeed 2 but if you remove the ‘+’ it becomes 11. If you want to know about anything go into the detail of it.
