In the just the previous post I had written that most of the crooks in the media “inject poison into the public vein every single day”. As if to prove the point Dipankar Gupta, a Commie member of the incestuous club of Lutyens, was injecting poison through CNN-IBN during the exit polls discussion on May 12. He made an extraordinary statement “the minorities are now armed and ready to take on the majority and will not be at the receiving end anymore”. There was no real context for the statement except for the fact that the exit polls showed a victory for the NDA. And given that Narendra Modi may become PM the usual nonsense of whether Muslims will be killed and tortured is thrown into the argument for no reason or rhyme. I call such people enemies of the state. The entire club survives on the well-being of the Dynasty in Delhi. You can imagine how many members of this club are going to be hurt that the dynasty may not throw them crumbs for a while or forever.
Four years ago when I started writing at this site my first title was “Time to rein in the Indian media”. Watching the MSM and having read many books, including those on our history, I had to choose which one to confront. Politics? Historians? Corruption? I had to conclude as the original tagline to this blog held: “Crooks and liars in the media are the greatest danger to Indian democracy”. They still are and will remain so for a while. And by these crooks I mostly refer to the editorialists and not the honest ground reporters. These editors grandly like to claim they are mere “messengers”. They can be pimps, brokers and fixers but there is no way they are messengers. They were hoping this time too in the elections they can pull off a miracle for the dynasty by constantly abusing the opponents of Congress, particularly Narendra Modi. Unfortunately for them, unlike 2009 there is a vast army of people on social media who have dismantled their lies methodically.
Even with the exit polls on May 12, Arnab Goswami tried to peddle a farcical poll and he himself seemed unclear who conducted the polls. He claimed ORG and a day later claims ORG-India, both being separate entities. It wasn’t a mere blooper; Arnab carried the polls without having a clue about who had really done the polls. In a hilarious part TimesNow showed the Left getting two seats in Telengana when they had contested only one. After this screw up, a day later Arnab was hosting a programme called “poll of polls” to decide who got it right. As if he or anyone on his panel really knows. And such comic nonsense is discussed for 4 hours non-stop.
In the last one month Arnab has been the biggest asslicker of Congress, particularly Mrs. Priyanka Vadra. The woman who has done nothing in public life went about dancing and waltzing between the private estates of Amethi and Rae Bareli and our MSM kissed the ground she walked on. It wouldn’t be harsh to say they even kept their mouths open all the time so she could use it as a spittoon for her moronic utterances. Such is the slavery of our editors to the Gandhi-Vadra family. The poor ground reporters are forced to chase this princess of nothing like domestic servants by their bosses. All this for what? Merely to stop a man from winning the elections? Here’s a sample of one the biggest scumbaginis in media:
In July 2012 (and many other times) Barkha Dutt grandly claimed Modi wouldn’t be a PM nominee, that there is no Pan-Indian Neta. You think she really meant any of that? Not in the very least. She has to be a dumb moron as an editor if she cannot read political signs. Whatever she has written and spoken till the conclusion of the December 2012 elections in Gujarat is nothing but wishful propaganda-peddling for her darlings in Congress (and the BJP too). She also campaigned heavily for the Congress in Gujarat in a covert fashion. She has finally learned her lesson the hard way. This election season Barkha largely restricted herself to ground reporting without getting into too much of political campaigning. There was the occasional excess theatre like with the Muslims in many places and the “Ganga-Jamuna Tehseeb”. If you had watched her shows you would think Varanasi was founded by none other than Bismillah Khan. NDTV who pioneered opinion and exit polls on TV must have been seriously wounded. They decided not to conduct any exit polls and not make any predictions at all. Wise decision!
If you look closely at Barkha’s tweet and article I quoted above there has been a strange obsession with the media to make the elections a Rahul-Modi match. Rahul Gandhi was never a match for Modi. He is an excellent non-performer and even better when it comes to moronic utterances. And then all the media houses uniformly descended on Muslims and how they hate BJP and Modi and they won’t vote for Modi. It is telling that all the “Sickular” parties were chasing Muslims while Modi chased “everyone”. The results will probably reflect that reality.
Prior to chasing Muslims the media was trying all alternatives to Modi. They tried LK Advani in their polls, they tried Sushma Swaraj and some jerks even had AB Vajpayee as an option in their polls. Frustrated, they tried to throw in Shivraj Chouhan as an option with foreign articles predicting Chouhan will be the preferred choice. Every corrupt journalistic practice that could be employed to sabotage Modi was used by the entire MSM. In case you forgot, after the Delhi elections they all screamed “Will Arvind Kejriwal halt Modi’s march?” Since then they had projected Arvind Kejriwal as the PM candidate sent directly by Allah. AK got carried away with all this media hype and started challenging Modi to all sorts of things; from debates to data about Gujarat. I feel sorry for AK because he lost his head because of media morons who played him up as the saviour.
But AK too is as hypocritical as his “krantikari” media friends. Each time he dashed to Varanasi he took a train in grand style with the media travelling with him as baggage. He posed for the cameras, took pictures inside the compartment and gave interviews from his sleeper berth. People are now too enlightened to fall for this stupid theatre. AK also claimed he had no money while others were loaded with cash. His was the only campaigner who was arrested for distributing cash to voters in Varanasi. When he realised his stupidity didn’t work, his exit from Varanasi was not worth a train journey. He just took a flight back.
The exit polls are causing dismay to many folks in the media. The Congress, of course, is so badly down in the dumps that it refuses to recognise any poll. One hopes they will respect the outcomes on May 16. The MSM is not the messenger, informer or educator anymore. Trust them where raw, verifiable news is concerned. For the rest, they have become public enemy number one. Post the results many dramatic changes in the media are inevitable. Imagine, if these editors weren’t corrupt why should political change result in a dramatic change in their profession and careers? Political changes should directly affect only politicians. The exit polls are just minor wounds; the bigger ones are around the corner.
