Reader's editor in a spot.

Looks like the Editor's Writer discovered to his dismay that his
position has become untenable and lets his own chief answer the
readers (carefully selected, of course after due filtration). The
whole outcome has been that Chindu is getting more and more exposed,
stark naked.

Hi HF,
This shows the arrogancy of Naxal Ram in replying to the readers.Hope he will dig his own grave asap.

Keep up the good work, guys. spindian express used to be a very popular blog. It would have become more popular than Indian Express, but those guys gave it up midway. Think of growing to become Indian media watchdog one day. Take this as a marathon.

"Editor-in-Chief: I stand by this approach and policy (of fair and balanced coverage)."

Mwhahahaha...

I regularly send these dunces link to this blog here with my address etc(readerseditor@thehindu.co.in)

They will never publish it and have a smokescreen too->

I had to keep out a few messages that made some good points, because the writers did not provide their addresses — which is a must.

Keep going, HF

I think Ram has a right to his opinion. His readers have an option to move to a different newspaper if they do not like his opinion. And from the looks of it they are already doing so. The Hindu suffered a massive 14% drop in readership ( Statistics from IRS 2007 Round 1 )

The Hindu suffered a massive 14% drop in readership ( Statistics from IRS 2007 Round 1 ) Really? Who gained then?

Looks like Print media as a whole dropped. Hindu's losses have just been more than other news papers
