Take a good look at these 2 pics below. It’s not a ‘find the 10 differences’ contest but it would be hard for anyone to miss the major difference. Just so you know the pic on the left is from the time when the Robert Vadra land scam was at its peak in the media and the one on the right is of Narendra Modi in Delhi on June 18.
On the right there is the usual crowd of uncouth, uncivilised reporters and cameramen crowding Modi’s vehicle pushing and shoving for some crumbs. The media refuses to stop this indecent behaviour by their members. Remember, Modi is under ‘Z’ security. Any of those cameramen could be a suicide bomber. And on the left is Vadra (in light grey suit) getting into his car accompanied by a bodyguard. Do you see any reporters or cameramen hounding him? None! This “Daamad” is also under Z security. Times Now captures his images like a thief or a spy from a good distance. No reporter or cameraman was picketing Vadra’s house for soundbites. Have you ever seen vehicles of Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi being mobbed by these mongrels any time? Fact: These people who hound everyone else cannot get within a mile of the Gandhi family. That’s the secret!
So a former NDTV beat reporter Sandeep Bhushan spilled the beans on the fake reports of Sonia’s Unhappiness in the Open Magazine. Sonia unhappy over Digvijay’s remarks over Karkare, Sonia unhappy over Jharkhand governor, Sonia unhappy over Rae Bareli roads, Sonia unhappy over Ashwani Kumar and Bansal. It’s a long list of “unhappy” Sonia. Sandeep Bhushan, as an insider, puts out the dirt on all the fake news about Sonia’s unhappiness that is being spun by the media. I have said before that Sonia may not be a wizard on any topic which is why she can’t directly take questions in the media or from the people. Even during the Delhi Gangrape protests in December 2012 her cronies picked out a group of six to have a “hugs and kisses” session with her to show how unhappy she was. Of course, spinning most of it is none other than the Queen’s first poodle: NDTV. Bhushan has worked with NDTV as also Headlines Today and the Open article destroys a lot of myths about Sonia. Her wisdom, intelligence, compassion and anger are all concoctions by her right-hand man Ahmed Patel and spun by channels like NDTV. That’s it! Nothing more!
Once the Open article was out there were others quick to jump on the spin-doctoring story but in all these 9 years none in the media ever bothered to ask any serious questions of SoniaG and they still don’t. Therefore, it is with great satisfaction that I record that sites like MediaCrooks and other SM sites have been more daring in questioning the media’s role and equations in managing SoniaG’s image as the Queen who can’t be touched. If you haven’t read of these following articles, I recommend you do:
June 2011: All The Queen's Poodles.... How media celebs and their beat reporters report and tweet fake interpretations to protect the Queen.
June 2011: Why Is Indian Media Scared Of Sonia Gandhi? Rahul Kanwal in a public meeting cuts off a question on SoniaG. This is where I started wondering why our media is so scared of the lady and fall at her feet like her durbaris.
July 2011: No wild allegations against Gandhis please – Where Rajdeep shuts out Vishwabandhu Gupta from talking about black money issues concerning the Gandhi family.
July 2012: Sonia's Supreme Sacrifice – The media, without a single question or investigation despite Subramaniam Swamy’s many statements, have concluded SoniaG made a great sacrifice by not becoming PM in 2004. They never bothered to ask if there were other reasons.
October 2012: Flanking The Queen & Protecting Her Secrets – How the media, along with Congress members, acts as a frontline defence force to protect SoniaG from anything and everything that is negative to the Congress or their govt.
October 2012: The Sonia Gandhi travel & health bulletin – On how SoniaG slips out of India in secret aircrafts and slips back in and how the media slaves ask no questions about her health under the garb of “private matter”.
November 2012: Rajdeep on deception lane – In which Rajdeep gladly defends Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi in the National Herald scam and asks “Where is the fraud”?
December 2012: Delhi Protests - When Chickens Run To The Media – On how the media allowed Sheila Dikshit to put up a tearful soap on TV and how Sonia Gandhi was so moved that she met a ‘select six’ over the Delhi Gangrape protests.
TV channels like NDTV owe their existence to “compassion” by the Congress and GOI and naturally by SoniaG. It is not very different for others. The tabloid Tehelka is practically a doormat for the party. The editors who scream and shout about Modi and everyone else probably piss in their pants or skirts when it comes to SoniaG. Such is the grip that the Congress has on their necks. Take a look at Rajdeep Sardesai’s programme over the National Herald newspaper building scam by the Gandhi family. He even asks “where is the fraud”? Sure enough, the media has quietly buried the National Herald scam and no one’s going to talk about it again. At CNN-IBN the beat reporter who was involved in the Cash4Votes sting stated he was made to feel like a “stray dog”. Is that any surprise Sandeep Bhushan now spills the beans on NDTV in similar fashion?
This is not a first for NDTV by any measure. Can anyone forget Radiagate? It will be etched in Indian media history as the expose of the biggest crony journalists who are in fact slaves of the Congress. Prannoy Roy himself has been accused of scams and cases have been filed in 1998 which have mysteriously disappeared. There is also a report on coastal regulations violation by Prannoy Roy in building luxury properties. How does he get away with all this? Crawling helps! Recently Vinod Dua’s public spat with Roy has been the target of much laughter on the social media. Then there is Khadija Ejaz, an intern at NDTV, who filed a damaging report about her experience with them (read NDTV: Train with the beast).
Barkha, Prannoy, Rajdeep, Arnab, Kanwal, ShekharG all claiming to be great champions of journalism must really look deep into their conscience (if they have one) and ask how they became poodles of the Queen and how they killed honest journalism by bending the bunkum for her.
