India's Worst TV Panellists

If you haven’t watched this particular episode of the CNN show ‘Crossfire’ I recommend that you do. It was the American version of Left and Right which made the unfortunate mistake of inviting film actor and satirist Jon Stewart as guest. Stewart not only exposed the hacks but accused the hosts of dividing the country with their mindless ‘theatre’ and ridiculed them so badly that the show had to be pulled off the air. That is the unfortunate truth. There is a great difference between good debates and ‘theatre’. And it is always easier to imitate evil than it is to replicate the good. The Indian TV channels and their daily debates are mostly nothing more than absurd theatre. Usually, the panellists on the show are picked not for their independence but for their political persuasions. Kicking and screaming, talking over each other, hurling insults is the kind of theatre that our media dishes out as ‘shows’ rather than sensible debates that can unravel facts. There are panellists like Soli Sorabjee or Harish Salve who hold strong views but express these with decency and respect for others. Not so the usual suspects who are handpicked for the divisive agenda of the media.

The Lokpal bill is obviously the flavour of the week. Far from discussing the contents of the draft bill or its clauses our media crooks were busy helping the govt divert attention by focussing excessively on the quotas and the comedy of Laloo Yadav. It is only Arvind Kejriwal from TeamAnna who talked about specific clauses in a presser. So, on December 22 I asked fellow tweeple who they thought were the worst TV panellists and the response was near unanimous when it came to naming those. 

Thanks to the responses of:

Mark Tully, the renowned British journalist, who is as Indian as you can get stated it best: Primetime debates an excuse for doing cheap TV:  “Well, as someone who is sometimes on these panels, frankly I am amazed that there are so many of them. There is a stage army of people really who come on to these panels….And I think this is largely an excuse for doing television on the cheap. I personally believe that we should have other ways of presenting the news, discussing the news than endless panel discussions…”. So here are India’s worst panellists. (They are listed randomly and not in any ranking)

Vinod Sharma – He’s the political editor of Hindustan Times. Yes, the one with that permanent smirk on his face which is eerily similar to the smirk that child molester S.P.Rathore sports. His boss is a Congress MP in Rajya Sabha and his newspaper itself is seen as a Congress mouthpiece. If he is on a panel you need not have a spokesperson from the Congress at all. At best, he will grudgingly concede the gaffes of the govt but will quickly come around to defend them by any and all spurious arguments.

Mani Shankar Aiyar -  Foul-mouthed, intemperate and vicious he probably considers it a goal scored if he manages to infuriate viewers. From his comment about Ajay Maken’s command of the English language to the most recent diatribe against Anna Hazare he is the best example of ‘theatre of the absurd’. As substitute for genuine argument he lately asks Anna to go back to Ralegan Siddhi and flog drunkards. And in intended pun he thought it was funny to state that we have heard the “Annas and paises” enough. Personal attacks and insults are his favourite form of healthy debate.


Teesta Setalvad – Think Gujarat and she will crawl out from anywhere and on every channel you can think of with that permanent scowl of hers. She is the favourite of our TV channels when it comes to bashing Narendra Modi and when required also trash the BJP. Not surprising, considering that she was funded by the likes of the Congress and CPM to campaign against them. The SIT that investigated Gujarat riots is on record stating the affidavits she engineered were mostly fake and her own associates have now turned against her. And because she is so tainted it makes her all the more endearing for channels like NDTV and CNN-IBN. The agendas match! Has sought anticipatory bail and none less than the Supreme Court has rapped her on the knuckles for frivolously attempting to internationalise what are matters for Indian courts. Of course, for all her services the Congress govt honoured her with a Padma Shri award

Renuka Chaudhury – Whosoever coined the phrase “insult to intelligence” must have pictured and heard this woman light years ago. If sheer cacophony were to win awards in a debate she would have a roomful. And, of course, the nation owes it to her for enlightening everyone that Rahul Gandhi isn’t a “parrot”! I still maintain that if the Congress wants to lose a battle or a debate or cut a sorry comic figure Renuka Chaudhury is any day a reliable bet. To her goes the credit of reducing of any debate to bickering and throwing her ‘weight’ around. I doubt if you would want her as a neighbour, one as shrill and senseless as her. 

Shoma Choudhury – She sure gets paid for ‘telling the truth’ as her rag called ‘Tehelka’ proudly claims as their tagline. Mind you, she is not your kicking and screaming types but an intelligent smooth-talker who will find great malleability with facts. Recently crossed swords with Subramanian Swamy on a channel discussing his controversial article in DNA for which his courses were cancelled at Harvard. She suggested the article was hate-speech but did not directly confirm if she had read it thoroughly when Swamy asked her. A rare one who can form opinions on people without reading what they have written. Her magazine is another one that resurrected itself after the UPA came to power in 2004. Her greatest moment must have been ‘THINK’, but I wish she would do that before speaking. 

Sanjay Nirupam – Last heard he is STILL a member of the Congress. Imagine a thousand empty vessels tumbling down a rocky mountain cliff and the sounds they would make. There, you have Nirupam! Loud-mouth who considers TV debates as election campaigns. What more can one say about him than cite Ashutosh of IBN7 who recently asked him to leave a debate if he could not tolerate the views of others. Maybe he should attend SriSri’s AOL courses or Dr.Phil’s art of being subtle. But knowing Nirupam he is not likely to learn new tricks in a hurry.

 Tushar Gandhi – He is not a frequent traveller on TV debates but springs up every time there is a discussion of Mahatma Gandhi. You would not be wrong in thinking he is Gandhi’s gift to God. At other times, he is the sole authority on what is “Gandhian” and what is not. Didn’t think too much when he considered selling out rare images of Gandhi to a corporate entity for commercial campaigns. To his credit, he is soft-spoken, mild mannered and not as belligerent as some of the other panellists that are frequently on display. But the world would be better off if he weren’t dishing out too many sermons in the name of Gandhi. Lately, this nation is getting a bit tired and restless with all the other Gandhis.

Nandita Rao – It is one thing to be kicking and screaming. But it gets worse when you have a bad voice too. The shrill lawyer is a favourite of CNN-IBN when it comes to Anna bashing. How she came to be a panellist on TV shows is a mystery that only CNN-IBN can answer but I’m sure quite a few strings, nay ‘ropes’, must have been pulled to get her there. Thankfully, her appearances have reduced and one hopes it stays that way. It is fair to oppose Anna and team on issues but to take a war-like, belligerent approach to debates is what makes up Nandita Rao. But she provides the kind of theatre that our TV channels desperately seek. Logic or sense be damned!

 Manish Tiwari – He is one of my all-time favourite panellists. If he is on a show he is bound to leave you spell-bound with some quote or the other. And he’s a lawyer too. His comment “Corrupt from head to toe” about Anna Hazare was made as a spokesman of the Congress and not as a panellist. Irritating, belligerent he could easily be the saint of lost causes. Since that comment on Anna he was gracious enough to apologise only to goof up again in parliament. Sushma Swaraj, leader of opposition, had to caution him with advice on being a first-time parliamentarian and to learn decency. Will he learn? Time will tell!


There were other names suggested like Suhel Seth, Mahesh Bhatt, Chandan Mitra and more and all of them deserve a place in this post but the list could go on and on and on.

Here is something that is disturbing about these panellists. Umesh Aggarwal, a documentary film maker, who has been exposing the underbelly of the media had this to say: “Every aspect of news be it political, business, sports or entertainment had a price tag. Even panel discussions on an important national issue were ‘fixed”. Guests were invited to give the discussion a particular slant. Selection of guests wasn’t dictated by the editorial policy of the group but there were other considerations”. That says everything about India’s worst panellists.

  1. Congress has fileded a strong TV paneslist for debates in Tv to brwobeat Oppn.It has also got some Editors in TV from national dailies to support their policies.But all oppn has failed to depute some of their strong spokesman as panelist in TV debates.Chandan Mitra from BJP is a total failure.Nirmala Seetharaman is quite good.RavishankR prasad is also good But fact is that the anchor in TV allows a lot of times to Congress but interrupts the debates by Oppn leaders and spokesman.It is a slave media which is doinga hit job on Oppn from Congress.Let People Judge them and take corrective measures

  3. This Tushar Gandhi is the one who also sold the rights to MontBlanc for putting M.K.Gandhis face/signature on the pen with a price tag of 10+ Lakhs. Long back on the same subject, I read an article by M.J.Akbar on TOI "all that matters" section where Akbar seeemed to ask the question that, what would have Gandhi done, if he were to be gifted the same Lakhpati pen, and the answer would most probably be Gandhi would have smiled with his toothless abandon and lost that pen. [Sorry for being off the subject, but I could just not hold myself when I saw that Fat Overweight Tushar Gandhi's picture in here].

  4. The worst spokesperson for Congress is Renuka Choudhary I have never heard her debate the specifics of the discussion. All she can do is scream in the loudest voice and make funny faces at the other panelists.

  5. Why does Manoj Tiwari always has his mouth open like a cartoon character? Renuka looks like a ghosts with those screechy voice and bulged-out eyes. MS Iyer is an attention-seeker. They scare you to the core by their facial expressions if you are to watch news channels before sleep.

  7. Great list. Abhishek Manu Singhvi is another straight-faced liar who could be added to it. Spin includes choice of panellists, air time given to them by chor anchors, questions asked to pro-agenda and anti-agenda panellists and so much more. For example, a good anchor could call 1 of the panellists from the above list and yet manage to expose their lies and hypocrisy as well.

  8. Definitely Mahesh Bhatt deserve a place in this list. Whether it comes to ridiculing Kashmiri’s soldiers' bravery or drolling out Anna’a team effort… he is number one.

  12. Two 'mani's are too annoying: Manish Tiwari & Manishankar Aiyar.
    Manishankar Aiyar is called in NDTV every now and then. The guy's indecency, disrespect for others are mistaken as boldness or straightforwardness. watching him speak is like watching someone masturbate in public. The doer enjoys, but viewers don't !!:) :)

  13. Dear Ravinar,

    What surprises me the most is the abusive & impolite mannerisms of all the above mentioned panelists against someone from BJP, Pro Hindu organization or even Anna's team. These Jokers keep on interrupting & throwing insults on anyone remotely anti-Congress. As empty vessels make the most sound, their frustration is understandable because that's what they are paid to do.

  14. Mani Shankar Iyer is not just foul-mouthed and intemperate, you should also consider his immeasurable loyal contribution to post-independence Gandhi family by keeping the scams like CWG, 2G, Lokpal at a distance; he’s deputed at the media as an independent entity by Congress who can deliver pseudo-intellectual diatribes that would keep the level of the multi-billion dollar scams at the doorsteps of Kalmadis, Jaipal Reddys, Rajas and Dixits and not higher. There are people like Kalmadis who are ready work like this for a few penny and can be used as scapegoats whenever required.

  19. To Anonymous above. Didn't you READ the blog? TV anchors as part of the paid media are complicit in projecting BJP and Anti-Congress views in a bad and UNTRUTHFUL light. No wonder the obnoxious panellists belong to the category that sucks up to the corrupt Congress. One can tell where your sympathies lie. Either with Paid stooge anchors (are you one of them?) or with paid stooge panellists. It ain't easy to shamelessly promote untruths and lies and be likeable at the same time. So whoever you are--a 'paid news' anchor or a paid stooge panellist my sympathies lie with you, but please don't ask us to like all the creatures we pity.

  20. WELL just to add to tushar Gandhi...

    just because he is the grand son of Gandhi he can express his views and we can not.If he ever followed Gandhiji he would join the movement.. and not say baseless things

  26. Alok Mehta from Nai Duniya is also a highly biased person. He frequently appears in various news channels trying to project congress as the saviour of the country and team Anna as threat to democracy. He is also ardent supporter that if anyone has any problem then he/she must contest election and that is the only legitimate way out.

  27. "Anonymous" took exception to my remarks. I would like to tell him/her that I am not important enough to be invited by TV channels as a panelist. And I am no mediacrook either. There is pro-Congress media, just as there is pro-BJP media. For every Sagarika Ghose there is a Prabhu Chawla (how come he is not in the list!). For every Rajdeep Sardesai there is a Swapan Dasgupta. For every Mani Shankar Aiyar there is a Subramanian Swamy. For every Aruna Roy there is a Kejriwal. I am not batting for any of the worthies listed. I am only pleading for objectivity for which mediacrooks doesnt appear to have much respect.

    ReplyDelete
  28. @ Anonymous above:

    The list is made based on feedback and on considerations other than politics. It comprises panelists who are mindlessly belligerent, intolerant and have political motives. For eg: Swapan Dasgupta is rightwing but is neither belligerent nor intolerable. He also does not disrespect others.. I hope you can tell the difference.. Other than that all your views are welcome...

    Also, people like Aruna Roy, Kejriwal and other activists appear as panelists only for their issues and not for every issue on earth as these panelists do.

    To others who have talked about Sagarika or journos... they are TV anchors and not panelists..

    ReplyDelete
  29. I was cursing the author of this blog upon going through the first three panelists that he obliterated Renuka strutting in his mind but upon rolling down the entire paradigm shifted.

    The style and smirks they are associated with is puking for us. Buttressing the corrupted and bullying what is stored in their mind for quid pro qua and thus fooling the nation for the past six decades is meticulously enough to lynch them if they repeat to go on for looting the nation with impunity. As Mr CR mentioned, you have ignored Diggy; precisely confined to mental asylum as per the wish of majority of the common? Nay, it is not the custom of the cong to merit the majority.

  30. In Marathi Regional media there are some like Kumar Ketkar(Loksatta), Pratap Asbe(Maharashtra Times) and so called analyst Uday Nirgudkar, Prakash Bal and Congress sponsored Social Activist Seema Sakhare, Kumar Saptarshi, G.R.Khairnar. All of the above impartial, educated, high thinkers and good people hired to damage Anna's Movement and Janlokpal.

  33. They are digging their own political grave. As societies are maturing ill-mannered and grudge carrying panelist are creating a negative image of themselves. The unfortunate part is that these (mostly politicians) like Digvijay Singh and kapil sibbal have the tenacity to speak against the Anna and revolution openly and blatantly because they know that the key viewers of such shows are urban population that does not believe in voting so no threat to their political supremacy no matter they openly become the villian of the society.

  34. In one morning debate on NDTV-India, Manishankar Aiyar and Editor of Dainik bhaskar were as panelists.

    Editor of Dainik Bhaskar said,
    "अगर पी.एम. खुद कह रहे है की वो लोकपालमें आने को तैयार है, और कांग्रेस खुद कह रही है की पी.एम. बहुत ईमानदार है, तो फिर पी.एम. को क्यों नहीं डाला जा रहा है ?"

    Manishankar replied in haste:
    अरे आज वहाँ ईमानदार आदमी है, कलको कोई चोर आ जाएगा |

    Anchor said with wonder:
    अरे अगर चोर आ जायेगा तो तो वो लोकपालमें आना ही चाहिए ना |

    and then Mr. Aiyer realized his stupidity and started yelling like nothing. and anchor smiled and closed the point.

  35. shakil ahmed must be in list. On debate, he never listen or understands other panelist and if starts speaking(not talking)he stops not till he realize that his voice is muted.

  36. There are lot. But no one can beat Renuka. No Rudalis can ever compete with her. The scene is fresh in my mind when the channels splashed out her picture crying loudly when SG was refused PM ship by the ex-President Kalam. I would not know if she would ever weep/wept at the loss of her own Mom.

    GM should have been first in the list. Never mind when there are others to occupy his place, let us give in. Ha, our philosopher Mani, the Shankar Iyer has lost his nuts. The debate in Times Now channel with poor Swapan is uninteresting.

  43. renuka, teesta, tushar G and Manish Tiwary win the list hands down... these days, i almost turn the TV off if I find them there, as they really insult my intelligence! Another panelist that I hate is Mahesh Bhatt.. why does he have to talk about everything? I think he is best advised to just get foreign chicks and make masala flicks!

  44. All evil lies only in the Congress? Sad, but supporters of Hazare sa'ab should at least learn after Mumbai that attacking only one party does not help their cause. And this site should also learn some balance. It's so obviously biased in favour of the BJP and yet gives lectures on objectivity to the media. This same tendency of seeing oneself as the epitome of propriety is what has led the BJP to this state. Fact written boldly on the wall for you guys to read- People don't support you anymore.

  46. Superb article...Mahesh Bhatt leads the race for his intellectual and "secular" credentials...No wonder NDTV and CNN often shows him on debates seeking his expert advice (and his tweets) on secularism, Gujrat, Anna....and so on. And also the way Rajdeep and other stereotypes introduces Tushar Gandhi (as a last/genuine source related to anything on Gandhism) to the viewers is quite remarkable...

  47. Dear Mr Anonymous,

    I completely agree that the Blog owner is tilted in favour of Hindu society. But is that wrong ? As long as he dosen't say anything cheap, vulgar, unpatriotic, unconstitutional he has a birthright to speak his voice from the perspective of the Majority but peace loving Hindu community. The real problem is that the Main stream Media projects itself as secular but continuously supports the Muslim cause of congress party for the money & perks they receive. That's where the real inspiration to be pro Hindu comes from! Hence I would suggest you to focus on the root cause of this pro hindu ideology becoming popular. You would mostly find the answer in the Hypocrisy of the Main stream Media & Congress Party.

    I agree, it would have been difficult job to pick only TEN among many , yet it would be gross injustice to the stature like Kumar Ketkar and like minded individuals, if you drop his name from the list. I think he holds enough credentials to qualify in this list.
    Among many few of them are; Once he said that Modi was never polled 60% votes in Gujarat therefore he is not the popular leader in the state. Scarcely he said so, the anchor Rajdeep ended the program and didn't allow for any rebuttals and didn't allow to ask him that which politician

  53. With that Child molester Rathore smirk on face, Vinod Sharma of HT is the most disgusting panelist one can think of. People think he is licking Congress in hope of getting a Rajya Sabha ticket. Thats not true. His HT Maalkin, Shobhana Bharti has already been put in Rajya Sabha by Congress and this irritating editor is only trying to please her, more than Congress. Worst part is, in any panel, he looks the most dimwit character. Yes, even Manish Tiwari seems and sounds a genius compared to Vinod Sharma.

    How could the list leave out Burka Dutt? With her periodic monkey grin she is one hell of an irritating journalist, on payrolls of Congress. The lady even comes up with expressions of deep pain on face while allowing cacophony of Teesta Sheetalwad. Owner Prannoy Roy has left his channel to mercy of mercenary journalists like Burka Dutt and channel has gone to dogs.
