Ethical journalism at display

So many "eminent" persons quoted verbatim. Isn't it surprising that none of them mentioned any political party? Or did they indeed blame one particular party wielding substantial power and Chindu chose to ignore it?

The Hindu : Front Page : “We must stop this infighting, this rivalry”

Here is an interesting piece of news on how "smart" our Angrezi media is.

On October 25, Aaj Tak, while broadcasting Tehelka's "sting operation", harped on the same old refrain that Mr Modi "did not call in the Army until three days had passed".

When Aaj Tak contacted me to get my response, I told the anchor that the Godhra carnage took place on February 27, 2002, that the Hindu backlash commenced on February 28, and the Army was conducting a flag march on the forenoon of March 1. He cut me short by saying that "this is exactly what we have said, no action was taken by Mr Modi on the 29th, 30th and 31st, thus giving three clear days to the murderers...". I had to remind him at this point that the date 28th was February 28 and there was no 29th, 30th or 31st in that month. The 'phono' was disconnected.
