A political witch-hunt is usually to destroy someone’s political career. But in India the single biggest hunt is not just to destroy someone politically but to also protect the misdeeds and failures of some. When it comes to such a hunt both NDTV and Tehelka are like a tag-team. It’s not a secret that both these outlets are Congress doormats. Instead of the usual explanation let’s also go through a pictorial of this by NDTV & Tehelka.
Here’s a pic from WeAreTheBest. One of the first things that the Congress govt did on returning to power in May 2004 is to restore the broken-down Tehelka. Well, after all this propaganda magazine had helped targeting the Congress opponents. Since then Tehelka has been repaying the debt by helping Congress in targeting all its opponents.
Tehelka is famous for using prostitutes as decoys in their sting operations. I guess that practice turned their journalism itself into prostitution. So on June 7, in another instalment of Modi-hunting in the Ishrat case, they put some CBI papers they claim to have accessed and a conversation between some officers to refer to “Black beard” and “White beard” being in the know. This is like a “he said, she said” kind of story that I doubt any sensible investigating unit would use as “evidence”. But then CBI doesn’t have a reputation like that. If indeed CBI papers are being leaked then obviously you know who would be behind it. Post this particular article Tehelka the “Seeta” has a chat with Rana Ayyub the “Geeta”. They are like twin sisters chatting with each other.
The person who operates the Tehelka Twitter handle must be either an idiot or Tehelka itself is an absolute idiot. The Rana article appeared in Tehelka so the moron operating the handle interviews her about it. That’s why I call it the “Seeta Aur Geeta” type interview where both the handles are cooking in the same kitchen. Then even more stupidly the Tehelka handle tells Rana in the bottom tweet to read “more” of her own article. Priceless! This Rana even went on to indict the whole CMO of Narendra Modi in the Ishrat case in another tweet. However, she may have realised one shouldn’t fake it beyond limits so deleted the tweet on the left. So officially that statement doesn’t exist. This seems to be a practice with Tehelka (Sometimes also referred to on Twitter as “TheHalka”). Earlier they interviewed their own editor Shoma Chaudhury on her article in Tehelka.
So it is evident that Tehelka itself doesn’t read articles appearing in the magazine so I assume only folks at NDTV read it since they use the masala from it to produce their own “exclusive and explosive” exposes. If you don’t observe carefully, whenever these Congress doormats have to talk about corruption or misdeeds they will use “UPA” not “Congress”. When good things happen they will talk about “Sonia” and “Congress”. It’s a very well-rehearsed arrangement. So, per practice, NDTV uses the Tehelka article of June 7, and Sreenivasan Jain makes loud noises about NDTV getting their hands on CBI documents of “Black beard-White beard” stuff. I don’t know why they have to use stealth and get those documents when Tehelka gives it all to them free. Isn’t that stupid? Because there was nothing in the NDTV nonsense on June 27 that wasn’t there in the Tehelka nonsense of June 7! So Sreenivasan Jain calls 1 from BJP, 1 from the IB and 4 from the Congress+others hunting Modi to debate it. The IB guy was there to only to defend the IB guy and the organisation but the other 4 were designed as “prosecution” to sentence Modi with Jaynarayan Vyas as the defending lawyer. Why bother? NDTV has already sentenced Modi long back and is only awaiting confirmation from some court. Take a look at this image from Sreenivasan’s witch-hunt:
The question as the headline is one of the most mischievous practices of our criminal media. While posed as a question the perception attempted is that Modi knew of the encounter and is therefore guilty. Of course Modi is guilty! He is guilty of knowing even about 9/11 and had advance information from the US on the Osama raid too. Everyone knows all this, except the morons at NDTV and Tehelka. Kartikeya Tanna quite nicely nails the lie of Jain who grandly claimed that the High Court had already pronounced the Ishrat case a “fake encounter” in the article CBI forging ‘facts’ in Ishrat case? at Niti Central. If the HC already ruled it was a fake encounter it doesn’t to occur to “black-beard” Srinivasan that CBI wouldn’t be investigating the case right now and he wouldn’t have had to do his bogus show at all. But well, this is NDTV so they just forgot to put out the “disclosure” that they use inaccurate information in their Cookery shows.
Is that all? Well, just about it except that while these two media outlets fake it to the limit they forgot another thing. The Tehelka article appeared on June 7, NDTV claimed they got CBI papers on June 27. And on June 28 even Headlines Today ran a “me too” show claiming they got CBI papers too. Damn! Looks like these CBI papers are flying all over the place or are being sold cheaply at Chandni Chowk. It must be brought to notice of these very people that on June 14 (much after the Tehelka stuff on June 7) it was reported widely that a senior CBI official himself stated there was “no evidence against Modi” yet.
I hope NDTV and Headlines Today have managed to cover up the goof-ups of Rahul Gandhi in Uttarakhand. The local people had actually protested his disaster tour. Having screamed about Modi let’s hope like these channels the people too will forget the incompetence of Congress in handling the disaster and the aftermath. The relief trucks grandly flagged off by SoniaG are also stranded and rotting. Let’s hope people will forget all this and that RahulG once again proved himself a miserable failure. The Courts will decide on the Ishrat case but there is a reason propagandists like NDTV, Tehelka and Headlines Today suddenly scream a lot about the case.
