BabaRamdev: Media's Mudslinging-Season-2, Episode-1


In a tweet on August 8 I had predicted some serious mudslinging against Baba Ramdev (BRD) when he starts another campaign at Ramlila on Thursday, August 9. No it didn’t take the IB or RAW to tell me that. I just recalled how last year CNN-IBN had inaugurated mudslinging season against BRD as he started his agitation in June 2011. This time Rajdeep Sardesai and Sagarika Ghose (the eminent Social Genius) are not alone. They are joined by master ‘News-Breaker’ Bhupendra Chaubey from their own stable. And then there were others like Madhu Trehan, Suhel Seth (The Item-Girl specialist) and a few more. We will come to Chaubeji and the rest a bit later.

First things first! Let’s start with the common question by all anchors, all anti-BRD panellists and of course, Congress. Why is BRD’s assistant Balkrishna appearing in posters with terrorists like Bhagat Singh and Rajguru at Ramlila? That’s blasphemy! Oh wait, it’s not me calling them terrorists, it’s our own school text books calling them that. And who allowed such textbooks? ICSE and the Congress govt of AP did. Even Mahatma Gandhi reportedly did not protest the hanging of Bhagat Singh. I did not see a similar protest from the media when heroes like Bhagat Singh were called terrorists. Did you? It’s alright, as they say one man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist. In this case one has to wonder who the other man is. Not to forget, when Anna’s ‘secular’ movement pulled down the large back-drop of ‘Bharat-Mata’ the media thought that was fair and there were no questions.

You see, idolisation is fine with the media only as long as it is for the Gandhi family. They can be anything or anyone. Take Rahul Gandhi. He can be Kashmiri, he can be Dalit, a Muslim, a Sikh, an Allahabadi and he can be a Brahmin as well. If there were a Chameleon’s Association they would have been seething in anger and protest. Not our media. But RG didn’t start that trend. It was started by Nehru then followed by Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and now Rahul Gandhi.

Hell, I forgot someone in between! The great saviour of India: Sonia Gandhi. Five years back Congressmen in MP dressed her up as the brave Rani of Jhansi in posters (don’t miss the cute little Rahul in the back-pack).  In true spirit and bravery of the Rani of Jhansi SoniaG battles all evils that threaten India and her people. Oh, I’m sure even in that case you will recall how strongly the media protested and Rajdeep, Arnab, Barkha, Chaubeji were all lambasting the Congress for insulting the memory of the brave Rani. No? They didn’t? Okay, so little Balkrishna appears with many other ordinary men in a poster with heroes and that’s the biggest problem for media. Exemplary unbiased morons!

Now, we can come back to Chaubeji. On August 9, he got up early and got out early and headed straight for Ramlila grounds to confront some women in the crowd. He asked them if they came on their own or were truck-rolled into Ramlila. To his surprise they told him they came from far off places in Maharashtra, Uttarakhand and such states. Not enough! So he goads another woman: “There are people who allege BRD has evaded tax, accumulated wealth and illegal properties?”. Hmmm! The woman replies with nonchalance: “Woh bewakoof hai!” (They are fools!) So Chaubeji got bitch-slapped over and over again with his silly questions. His questions tried their best to slander BRD but in vain. And he had stated in a tweet that he had the most “explosive” details about BRD’s tax evasion. Well, one sincerely hopes those explosive details don’t bomb the way Chaubeji did at Ramlila. So from last year our Mr.Chaubeji has now become Mudslinger Jr., next only to his boss.

And if Chaubeji does his thing in the morning can his boss, Mudslinger-in-Chief, be too far away? Rajdeep Sardesai started off early morning too with a stupid tweet asking if Ramdev can get some rains. Mind you, no Baba, no Swami, no Guru … nothing but plain ‘Ramdev’. Such is the contempt that our media gurus hold for him. Had it been a mullah Rajdeep would have addressed him as “Imam Saheb”. Well, you see BRD is clothed in saffron and Rajdeep’s loathing for that colour and Hindu traditions and customs is not such a big secret.

So at night Rajdeep repeats Chaubeji’s question: “Can Ramdev become the face of Anti-corruption?”. Someone on Twitter responded by asking if a bargirl and waitress can be the head of the UPA govt why BRD can’t be an anti-corruption crusader. Never mind! So RS asks Congressman Mani Shankar Aiyar the question and about crowds at Ramlila and MSA responds by stating “It’s a flop show”! Rajdeep turns to another panellist, Devender Sharma, and asks for a response. Sharma states a stunning fact: “The biggest flop in India is Congress’ youth icon Rahul Gandhi although the party will not accept it”. I would have to say going by history and facts Rahul Gandhi’s failures would actually be considered more than a flop. those would technically count as a total disaster. The difference is: Rahul Gandhi rides in the back-pack of Jhansi Ki Rani unlike BRD.

Hmm… so this Devendra Sharma wasn’t very obliging. So Rajdeep turns to a trusted RSS-hater, Kumar Ketkar. And because Rajdeep knows him to be a RSS-hater asks him a leading question: “Is BRD backed by RSS?” . Happily, Kumar Ketkar lets off a well-strung rant about BJP, RSS and BRD being the mask of these forces. KK implies, without saying it, that RSS is anti-national and to that Tarun Vijay shoots a few bullets calling KK “Friend of Pakistani supporters and ISI supporters in the media”. So you can see how Rajdeep wanted the debate to go. The idea was neither black money or corruption or BRD’s movement. Once again, it was how to trash BRD. Mudslinging at its best! I think both Mani Shankar Aiyar and Kumar Ketkar are scumbags from the filthiest of waters. But hey, don’t take my word for it! Listen to someone who is usually more profound with his loathing of the Twitterati: Nikhil Wagle. His tweet says a lot about about MSA and KK and their filthy language.

It’s not over until Justice Arnab sings it’s over. So apart from CNN-IBN, TimesNow too had a hilarious debate. Nothing particularly outstanding in that show except for Madhu Trehan outrageously charging BRD with “duping common people” and when asked about BRD’s ability to draw crowds, Item-Boy Suhel Seth responded with: “I can get item-girls from Bollywood and get you crowds of 30000”. I believe that is perfectly in sync with Suhel Seth’s job description. These are the stupid utterances of Trehan and Seth that pass for debate.

The singular chant of all anchors and media celebs is that BRD has been issued notices by IT department and allegations of illegal properties, whose private jets he flies and so on. Firstly, the IT and ED notices started only after BRD’s agitation last year. We all also know how the IT and ED work lately. LK Advani rightly stated: “The UPA survives because of its ally the CBI”. That’s how IT and ED are also used by Sonia Gandhi and the govt against adversaries and then their media stooges tom-tom that message as if BRD has been already proved a criminal. Nobody expects BRD to work miracles or expect black money to come back in 3 days or corruption to end immediately. He may not even know how the system or govt works. But there has to be a reason why the Chaubejis, Rajdeeps, Madhus, Aiyars, Ketkars and some more indulge in this extra-ordinary mudslinging against the man. Maybe it has to do with a colour or maybe it has something to do with phonecalls from upstairs. But either way, welcome to Mudslinging: Season-2 Episode-1.

  2. Not to forget the argument that BRD does not have any solutions but only complains... KK who was talking of logical fallacies does not really know a crap about logical fallacies..

    As per his arguments, one who has no solution should never complain... if the people had to provide the solution, what the hell is the government for??



    Writing in english and using glamorous words does not make one intellectual.. and shame on Rajdeep for allowing abusive and detrogatory language on his debates from Morally Stinker Ayier and Kumar Kheedakar!

  3. First of all, awesome aricle... Backpack RG was hilarious! From past 2 yrs the i have been watching lots of debates on Primetime English Channels. I never saw a single time when the anchors discussed the nitty-gritty of the issue, be it Lokpal or black money. The debates were always about the people and their ulterior agenda, how BJP wud benefit from all these agitations etc. I also wonder if there is a lack of intellectuals in Delhi since i see only 7-8 regular panelists on each and every topic that is debated. I hope in the future some sense prevails for our journos and do their job effectively and don't indulge in mudslinging.

  4. Superb article...New to this list is Raju purulekar...Now a days he is doing same work from twitter which kumar ketkar is doing from TV...need to expose him also.

  5. Madhu Trehan, Suhel Seth and yes Tushar Gandhi who doesn't trust DNA test too - He seemed to be totally unconvinced about the Gandhian methods (and his lineage too)- Talking about Suhel on mediacrooks.com is giving him a free ride. He will spend his lifetime to pay up ITC - Leave apart all of them, don't Media guys don't get real "Men (or Women)" who know their stuff, not just who strut their stuff, to come on their panel discussions? Or is it recession time and cost cutting doesn't allow media houses to get the best brains in business?

  6. Very Nice blog, esp. silence of Media over pathetic castigation over Shaheed Bhagat Singh and Jhansi ki Rani by Cong and its sympathiser, was clincher .

  7. Salute Ravi !! Haven't seen anybody writing so perfect esp when it comes to media and congress. And you added Nikhil Wagale in your post for the first time (at least since I started following you). And he is better than others like RS, SG.

    Did you get anything from BSNL? Coz I still can't access it from home network.

  8. The biggest question is why they are crooking turth to a biased opinion.I think it is very essential now to have special act on media their ownership pattern and external,politocal funding to understand their opinion formation.Media is the foruth pillar of democracy, if we can't control the media, it will bring disaster in the long run.Lot of abuse will be internalised,polarisation will create identities based on religion, The identities will transfer the emotion into action. There will be civil war, media will be responsible for that.

  10. No words to describe how superbly you exposed Main Stream Media. Thanks to Social Media that we are giving befitting replies to these LIARS.
    As mentioned by shri Devinder Sharmaji, Rahul is super flop even though supported by all government machinery. He travels in Bharat with government funds, do Nautanki here & there (dining in dalit's house, doing some shramdaan for photo-session, travels in Local train in Mumbai, visit some districts in Maharashtra to inspect drought in helicopter) but fails to solve the issues facing 85% of the population. No suprise that Rahul is flop--as he is the direct product of CONGRESS CULTURE who unfortunately is ruling this country for last more than 60 years.

  11. There are only few panelist out of 120 million population appear on these sucking TV channels, I don't watch even I dropped these channels from my TV package. Besides these media crooks there are some nuts behind the mask of social worker but actually they are on payroll of UPA and their job is to criticize everyone who is opposing corruption, illegal, unmoral activities of UPA. mediacrooks.com doing very good job. Thanks for exposing and showing true faces of bias journalist,so called social activist, bias political analyst and so many such suckers.

  12. Great article Ravi...but i don't agree with your view on arvind kejriwal

  13. Great article once again. I wish to inform you that I am a BSNL user and I am currently able to read your article on the web. It seems that the crooks in the BSNL were unable to find a loophole in the laws to disconnect your site from us.
    Anyway great research work to find that photo of Sonia Gandhi ...

  14. I have always been a supporter of the BJP & hate Congress. But it seems to me that mediacrooks is sponsored by BJP. I always see everything written in favour of the BJP. The moment Team Anna starts criticizing BJP, mediacrooks starts criticizing TA.I have read your previous posts which were in favour of TA. Now that they may hurt the BJP in 2014, TA has become an enemy for you.

  15. Good article. Did BSNL removed your site from the blocked list?

    And BTW, did you read Rajdeep's article here : http://ibnlive.in.com/blogs/newsman/1/63780/assam-riot-victims-need-our-sensitivity-not-our-prejudice.html

    Look how he has got his tail between his legs. Making all the excuses in the world to prove that Assam riot is different than Gujarat. I have not seen him calling Rajiv Gandhi or Jagdeesh Tytler as mass murderer of the innocent Sikhs.

  16. Ravi, Another great writeup. Like the bit about Jhansi Ki Rani.

    The actions of secular media is quite understandable, be it RS, SG, BD, KT or AG. They are like wounded bull in Bullfight ring, no better no worse but for their Karma. They go and charge anything which moves and is red, after all that is what is in their genes.

  18. Most of the CNN-IBN/NDTV/Headlines Today/India Today/Indian Express journalists/editors are traitors and Jai Chand's of our time, they need to be shown their right place (prison) soon.

  19. Well said, Ravinar. Look at, the MSM’s guest-speakers who come to stink on every occasion. Suhel Seth, Mani Shankar Iyer, HamaraCongress.com, the smirk-smiled Vinod Sharma and of course India’s pride Digvijay Singh. Of the lot, Mani Shankar proves often why he’s an intellectual bastard calling every other human being by names! Digvijay’s foul mouth stinks and even out of the idiot box that often forces the viewers to spray fragrance in their drawing rooms! Suhel Seth himself is more than an item-boy and suits all occasions for undress. Even worse, with this man Vinod Sharma and less said the better of him. And don’t want to spoil my shirt either!

    What a fall, for this journalism. MSM in India is not exactly main stream media, it is mediocre stinking media.

  22. Since last few months I am writing much more and lot on indian politics, while other activists are joining hand against corruption,lokpal,and black money,

    In fact, one more demand has to be fired, and that is the 'PAT'
    (POLITICIANS ABILITY TEST)

    Why and how the criminal recorded members are coming back again and again in lok sabha and assemblies in india,

    IT IS A BIG QUESTION ? ? ? AKHIR ?

    For clean environment in this poor system across the country, in this matter number of questions has already been fired to concern authorities i.e. human rights commission, ministry of law & company affairs, hon'ble supreme court of india and election commission of india, but result is always zero.

    NOW,MANY MORE NEW CRIMINALS ARE READY TO FIGHT THE CONTESTS OF 2014 POLLS, BECAUSE THEIR ELDER BROTHERS OR GURUS ARE ALREADY FIGHTING WITH EACH OTHERS FOR NEW STRATEGY OF MASTER MIND WONDER LANDMARK CRIME IN THIS COUNTRY.

    SO,

    PAT IS ONLY "SOLUTION" FOR CLEAN THE POLITICAL AND SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT ACROSS THE COUNTRY,

    TELL OUR VOTER NOT TO PARTICIPATE IN ANY ELECTIONS IN INDIA

    FIRE THEM 20 QUESTIONS, AND WATCH THAT WILL WILL FIND AS PER NORMS, WILL BE HONORED WITH VALUABLE VOTES, OTHERWISE KICK HIM OUT FROM INDIAN POLITICS FOR EVER,

    A SINGLE VOTER WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY ELECTION IN INDIA,

    WE HAVE TO CREATE AN ATMOSPHERE IN THIS COUNTRY, ALL CATEGORIES OF HUMANITY, " HUME BHARAT VANS KI PAVITRA VIRAASAT KO HAR HAAL MEIN BACHANA HOGA,

    IN FACT, AFTER A SHORT PERIOD, WHEN I WILL COMPLETED MY SCRIP BASED ON WORST INDIAN POLITICS, I WANT TO DISPLAY IT AS DOCUMENTARY, OR DRAMATIC SHAPE, ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN THIS REGARDS I REQUEST TO MEDIA PEOPLE, THINK MORE,

    I PROMISE, AFTER RELEASING IT ON TELEVISION IN INDIA, NUMBER OF CHARGESHEATED AND CRIMINAL POLITICIANS WILL BE UNDERGROUND, BUT I WANT THEY ALSO COMMIT SUICIDE ACCORDING THEIR CRIME THEMSELVES,

    UF.......... THIS IS WORST SUTUATION, EVERY COOL MIND PERSON CAN LOST HIS PATIENCE WHILE INDIAN POLITICIANS ARE AS CROCODILES IN HIS MIND.


    BUT THIS IS THE TIME-FOR THEIR CRACKDOWN, STRIKE ON THEIR BACK BONE,

    IMMEDIATELY FIRE THE DEMAND " PAT "

    IT WILL BE A STRANGE AND ACTUAL VERDICT ON VERDICT.
    IT IS THE VOICE OF MODERN INDIA, IT IS THE VOICE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO DIG A WELL DAILY AND THEN QUENCH THEIR THIRST.
