Since the Radia tapes broke in November 2010 NDTV has more or less banned Vinod Mehta from its channel. You can agree or disagree with Mehta but NDTV knows who the imps and pimps they want are. It stands to reason that a channel for Congi pimps has nurtured another Congi maid like Shekhar Gupta through the years. Over three years ago, in 2011, I wrote a post “Shekhar Gupta - Doctoring & Nursing The Congress”. It doesn’t take Einstein to have recognised this Congress “doctor” who parades as an editor. Was I wrong in calling this joker a Congi pimp who has constantly battled to save the corrupt Congress and Sonia? Well, don’t trust my words; but read this little blast after LS2014 and other election losses after that for the Congress:
“If the Congress high command had read Shekhar Gupta's National Interest column regularly, the party would not have suffered the disaster it has. But either because of smugness or arrogance, complacence or callousness, the party leadership, at all levels, thought that it does not require any analysis or advice… Did the Congress high command, or at least Rahul and flamboyant leaders like Kapil Sibal or Jairam Ramesh or Digvijaya Singh read this column seven years ago? If they did, how did they react? Did they even introspect or just choose to reject the futuristic projection made by Shekhar Gupta?”
If you are wondering who is paying that tribute to Gupta, you won’t entirely be shocked when you learn it is none other than another Congi pimp; Kumar Ketkar. Please read the above paras carefully. If the media were advising the govt on how to run the country better that would be perfectly acceptable and appreciated. Is that what they were doing? No! They were both advising the Congress party on how to rotate cabinet posts, how to structure the party and how to win elections despite being corrupt non-performers. They were both doctoring and nursing the Congress and not “national interest” as they deceptively claim. It is laughable that KK imagines Congress wasn’t getting advice from media. The media in any country is often the last to recognise public mood. When SG realised his Congress-cause is lost he did what asslickers do. They try to suck up to future leaders as this pic will show you:
I was a little surprised that Narendra Modi even allowed this snake to share a seat with him at a public rally. At an individual level Modi has been very sharp in the way he associates with the media. This is one of his rare mistakes. But as a party, BJP is not really very smart when it comes to media-skills or dealing with the media. They pay a price for their foolishness every single day. But still, I believe SG has realised that post LS2014 Modi doesn’t breed doormats, so the obvious course would be for him to return to his anti-BJP pursuits and pimping for any party that is opposed to BJP; in the Delhi’s case currently the AAP.
Every pig deserves a pigsty or a pig-farm. Naturally, SG pursues his normal anti-BJP career with the anti-Modi, anti-BJP, anti-Hindu, anti-India pig-farm called NDTV. The story of NDTV can best be described as three little pigs at different times. Post Delhi elections 3 little ones from the farm gathered to thrash a BJP spokie. SG is not very different from Vadra, except that he claims to be from Haryana. Like Vadra, SG too learned how to mount the right horses and enrich himself. And they both have DLF as a common friend. Sometime back Caravan magazine explained how this Lutyens Scotch-circuit “wheeler dealer” enriched himself and is an Ambani stooge. It just took someone to call him for the scoundrel that he is. Parties win and lose elections but panellists and self-proclaimed experts need to be careful in how they choose to express their hatred for BJP. Here’s what happened on NDTV after the recent thrashing of BJP in Delhi (Video 5.40 mins):
I have shortened the video from its original length which is on Youtube. Shazia Ilmi joined BJP just before the Delhi elections. Is she the first politician to ever switch sides? But for this joker SG to unleash extreme hatred and personal attacks against her and calling her names shows you the pig he really is. Shazia slammed him with her own choice of words, being the feisty politician she is and rightly called SG a “Wheeler Dealer” and Ambani stooge in as many words. I would say she was actually decent in not taking it any further. At 3.47 in the video, someone goes to the extent of saying “CHOP HER”; that is Shazia (SG later stated it was Roy who said it and it’s not really important who said it). Because that whisper can be missed on Youtube I have enhanced the volume at that part so it is absolutely audible to the listener. Of course, while conceding we can’t be sure who whispered that, the comment spread across Twitter. After 2 days of pondering how to explain his criminal behaviour, SG came up with this tweet:
That is as lame as it gets. So SG says it was Prannoy and he was whispering “Shopon” (for Swapan). It sure doesn’t sound like that to me and people can decide what they hear. It is also amusing that in the middle of an attempt to trash Shazia Ilmi and the BJP why would the 3 stooges think of “Swapan”? That’s another mystery and I leave that for Einstein. The man was not just trashing Shazia but his language and tone bordered on outright “abuse”. As far as I am concerned, if Roy was the one who said “Chop her” then the sequence of the discussion shows SG followed the command to perfection and attempted to “Chop her” with his wild abusive behaviour and name calling. But Shazia delivered the most severe slap this “Wheeler Dealer” editorialist has ever received in public on TV. That itself should give him sleepless nights for a long time.
This is how our Commies in media have been manipulating and promoting anti-BJP hatred. It is not a secret anymore. This is hardly the first time SG himself has been involved in such hate-spewing in recent times. Sometime back he peddled the fraud by the “Anti-Hindu” newspaper against Baba Ramdev which claimed BRD had created an Ebola-curing medicine:
A newspaper which peddles a fraudulent article without as much as cross checking with BRD about a site claiming to represent him is the kind of reporting that must now be legally punished. And the guy who claims to be an editor and re-peddles that lie should also be prosecuted. LIE BIG, retract small must be made a legally punishable offence. But the BJP too is a bunch of cowards who will not act on serious issues in the media. NDTV itself is house of frauds that needs to be prosecuted for multiple crimes. The BJP is failing on this because it is failing to “visibly” act on media corruption. Big economic results can take time but crimes that are already known deserve action. Arun Jaitley is not only a media manipulator (as other politicians and media folks call him that) but also a sucker for NDTV. He is little bothered about his party’s interests and more bothered about keeping his pyjama clean with the media.
It has been a practice for years – all the channels assemble anywhere between 3 to 9 panellists and thrash the lone BJP spokie and the party. In raucous debates where the dice is heavily loaded against the BJP and its allies, the tide must turn. Deliberate mischief must be punished legally. Where illogical abuse is hurled the BJP spokies too must start slapping the concerned panellist in strong terms. Shazia Ilmi has shown how to shut up an abusive panellist. The brutal slap she delivered to Shekhar Gupta will be remembered by him for a long time. Other anti-BJP stooges in the media pretty much deserve the same.
