‘Free’ media tars RSS with fiction

People complain of criminalisation of politics. But it could not have come to this stage if not for a greater criminalisation of media. Media is emulating such extraordinary standards of corruption that the politicians know they can wash away their sins even without a confession. In the present scheme of things, media is at the top of the food chain, having politicians for breakfast. At the bottom of the food chain are hindus.

have reported that the investigating agencies have failed to come up
with any evidence to make their charges against Sadhvi Pragya Singh
Thakur and Colonel Srikant Prasad Purohit stick. ... That it’s been two years since they were
arrested and have been in jail without being prosecuted or formally
