A friend recently mailed a very interesting article titled “10 Things About The U.S. News Media That They Do Not Want You To Know”. Fortunately, they limited it to 10. In India we can stretch the list to 100. We will compare notes soon. It is now an indisputable fact that the Social Media (SM) has severely dented the credibility of Mainstream Media (MSM). This denting is not because SM warriors possess some clout or inside information but simply because they call the lies of MSM. The Fiberals (Or left-liberals as they fashion themselves) are still not able to digest how they were beaten in Elections 2014. First they said SM doesn’t influence elections and now they whine the “Right Wing” SM warriors indulge in propaganda in support of PM Narendra Modi. The shrillest whining comes from none other than eternal C5M Sagarika Ghose. The shrillery is because her inferiority complex in public discourse has been stripped naked way too often. Incidentally, she claims Modi critics are being silenced by SM warriors (she calls them Jihadis) almost around the same time a TV channel censored Anupam Kher when he spoke about Kashmiri Pandits. Here are some snippets from Sagarika:
“This is not democracy! Any critic of this government is a “deshdrohi“; any hint of disagreement and you become an “anti-national traitor“ liable for sedition; any small critique means one is a “minorities-worshipping“, “sickular“ “libtard“, “communist“, “dynastic Congi slave“ who must instantly take up residence in Pakistan”.
Don’t wait for me to tell you when to laugh. Okay? Firstly, who are the morons who claimed they will leave India if Modi becomes PM? There is the late-liberal UR Ananthamurthy who said he will leave India if Modi becomes PM. Then there was left-libbie half-actress Nandita Das who whined on TV “I have a small kid, how can I live in this country” if Modi becomes PM (And all Fiberal TV crooks played up this whine over and over again). If some little starlet gets such airtime to whine do SM warriors demand that time? No! Question is, did any RW warrior say that he or she will leave India if Pappu or Mulayam Singh becomes PM? Who are the ones who really hate our democratic system? Will this C5M tell us who is not democratic? Will this bimbo tell us if these rants by her Fiberals are not mindless hatred? And they play up these nonsensical rants for what? That is what propaganda is. Salma says it; Sabrina quotes and keeps playing it.
And, of course, Sagarika is upset at all the name-calling. “Desh drohi, anti-national, minorities-worshipping, sickular, libtard, communist, dynastic Congi slave”. You’re upset with these names? Oops! Let’s see, you call people “Sanghis, Knickerwallahs, Pink Chaddis, Gandhi-killers, RW lunatics, Saffron mob” and all that. Who started this name-calling? It started with the Fiberal criminals long before SM even came into existence. And now they whine? Sagarika forgot to add I also call her a Category5Moron because she personally calls others “Internet Hindus, Swarm of bees, guttersnipes, ugly Indian males”. The list is long. What the RW is doing is rightfully chastising these idiots. If they had practiced fair debate they wouldn’t be getting such titles from the SM warriors. Of course, I don’t have to specifically add that there are equal number of SM warriors from Congress and AAP etc who are darlings of Sagarika. But it’s only the “RW Jihadis” that are silencing her. Err… silencing her or her Fiberals? Like Sabrina Ashutosh Varshney endorses?
So the essence of her crap is that she’s not able to digest electoral victories of Modi and has also been sacked from her TV channel. That she cannot rant like before is her “loss of free speech”. But even that is not true. You see, they want all the platforms. Sagarika had TV, she writes in multiple newspapers and websites. She has her own blog and twitter. Yet, this fake “victimhood” and whine about being silenced. So too with her grand endorser Varshney, who was first “evoluted” by Barkha, was frequently on TV and also writes on multiple sites and newspapers. You are the ones who are silenced? Pray do tell us how to honour your graves if that is the case. The most awful truth is that all these scumbags have used their freedom to abuse freedom of speech and abuse ordinary people. We should remind ourselves frequently on how Rajdeep Sardesai exercised his “free speech” rights at New York:
By the way, Sagarika also claims she and her lot had criticised the Congress constantly. Really? When once asked when she criticised Congress she had to pull out an eight-year old article of hers to show. Oh yes! In contrast they are quick to trash Modi. Sagarika’s Hammami pal Ram Guha recently tweeted nonsense about Modi saying Nehru didn’t attend Sardar Patel’s funeral when that was proved fake long ago. Even few days ago Rajdeep tried to spin the Delhi Trilokpuri riots as prelude to a bye-poll when there isn’t any. He wanted to imply BJP had engineered these riots for the bye-poll. These are the lies that the SM quickly dismantles and puts these rogues to shame and upsets the Fiberals. They want the freedom to continue their lies which the SM warriors don’t allow them. That’s their “victimhood”! They do criticise Congress. How? Here’s how they criticised Congress on the National Herald scam:
I can go and on with the bogus reporting and SoniaG-foot-licking journalism these poodles have practiced. So who are these left-liberals and why are they whining now? These liberals are small band of elite slaves of the establishment who dominated every discourse in the public domain. They enjoyed all the luxuries the Commie Congress gave them. Many of these whiners live in Govt houses. They get privileges unknown to the common man. It is an exclusive, incestuous club. The ordinary SM people are the intruders at their private orgy. Ordinary Indians were a nuisance to them. The SM has dented that monopoly. The SM is not an organised mafia as the HATO alliance is. If a member of the HATO club is in trouble they will all come to his or her help, whether it is Barkha and others in Radiagate or rape-accused Tejpal. Now it’s not easy to protect HATO criminals because SM makes too much noise. That upsets them. These same crooks who called Modi a “mass-murderer, hero of hatred” now crawl like worms to get Selfies with him. It is this that upsets them apart from the overall fall of MSM.
Let’s get back to those “10 things” that American media won’t tell its consumers. Though it’s a different country there are many parallels that we can draw (and maybe stretch it to 100 like I said earlier). The quotes are in blue as usual and my comments are in black:
#1 The level of trust in the U.S. news media is at an all-time low.
According to a Gallup survey that was conducted last month, only 40 percent of all Americans have a “great deal/fair amount” of confidence in the mass media. That ties the lowest level that Gallup has ever recorded.
#4 MSNBC is in a death spiral.
After years of lying to the American people, the credibility of MSNBC is absolutely shot. Pretty much all MSNBC does is endlessly spew establishment propaganda. One study found that MSNBC only engages in 15 percent “factual reporting” and the other 85 percent is “commentary/opinion”.
Sounds a lot like NDTV and CNN-IBN doesn’t it? NDTV is sinking for multiple reasons but you don’t have to be Einstein to figure out who sunk CNN-IBN. MSNBC is a lot leftie like our own Hammam. So this Fiberal disease is not unique to India. And guess what? Low factual reporting and high on propaganda! That’s what Sagarika and Rajdeep (AAP promoters) cannot do anymore so she accuses SM of her own crimes.
#5 Americans are increasingly turning to Facebook and other Internet sources for their news.
At least that is what one recent survey discovered. It found that an astounding 48 percent of Americans got news about government and politics from Facebook within the past week. The numbers for CNN and Fox News were just 44 percent and 39 percent respectively.
Oh! But you see these SM Jihadis are all about propaganda and silencing critics and have nothing to do with truth or facts. Eh?
#9 News magazines are also experiencing a dramatic multi-year decline in ad revenues.
Once upon a time, news magazines such as Time, Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report were must reads. But those days are long gone. Ad revenues are way down across the entire industry, and any magazine that can keep their yearly losses to the single digits is applauded for it…
Is it any surprise the likes of Vinod Mehta have sacked many employees at Outlook? And then he has nothing to do now but whine on TV channels and websites? Ditto for HATO members like Hartosh Singh Bal and his ilk. Their tribe is being dented severely by SM. It aggravates their pain further when a thoroughly exposed propagandini like Sagarika is their spokie. A woman that does nothing but create victimhood situations like her tweet about how that Hyderabad Dilsukh Nagar has meat shops so Muslims are the victims.
#10 Even though the mainstream media is dying, they still have an overwhelmingly dominant position.
What would you say if I told you that there are just six enormous media conglomerates that combine to produce about 90 percent of all the media that Americans consume? If you do not believe this, please see my previous article entitled “Who Owns The Media? The 6 Monolithic Corporations That Control Almost Everything We Watch, Hear And Read“? This is why “the news” seems to be so similar no matter what channel you watch.
The news is similar in all the channels. What do you say to that? That all these MSM poodles have the same “agenda”, the same “propaganda” and still have the same target to demonise: Modi. Even in communal riots like the recent Trilokpuri incident they haven’t wasted any time in trying to blame BJP or some Hindu outfit. SM has to constantly combat this MSM nonsense, propaganda and their lies. A huge majority of people on SM have nothing to gain personally. All these MSM criminals have enriched themselves with their propaganda and hate-spewing. So what are they complaining about silencing them? The MSM still dominates the public discourse but is destined for death if they cannot introspect and correct themselves. If they destroy the institution of news media then in future we will have rapists, murderers and criminals as journalists just as we have in politics.
They aren’t dumb. They do see the warnings. They do see their incestuous club dying. The Commie Fiberals will draw friends from anywhere in India, Europe or USA to peddle their trash. Ashutosh Varshney is just one such pimp. This incestuous Fiberal club is deeply in love with their Paki counterparts too and that’s why they whine so much for Pakistan. Their scotch circuit extends beyond India. And their job is to paint the Hindus or RightWingers as evil monsters who are bent on destroying democracy. What these “SM Jihadis” are destroying is the lies and HATO club. Simple! Nobody wants free speech to be curbed or anyone silenced and no one is being silenced. This fake victimhood is because they see their grave. If they wish, people will honour their graves as they recently did in Maharashtra and Haryana. That is what is causing them pain not some SM Jihadis.
PS: It is ironical that it took a Paki-American writer to call the trash of Commie Fiberals like Pankaj Mishra and Arundhati Roy. Our HATO club will continue protecting criminals.
