    Subramaniam Swamy, the torchbearer of justice in 2G case, had his house attacked. Did any media covered it? Some food for thought.

    Mainstream media are hand in glove with political parties.

    Anyone who believes otherwise is naive.

    Mainstream media to a large extent have to toe the Govt line because their biggest source of revenue for classifieds and ads is the Govt. itself. so you cannot afford to rub your customer the wrong way. Compare the size of Govt. ads and classifieds in Hindustan Times Delhi with any news paper and then you read their news, the slant is very clearly in favour of their customer. Obviously it also helps that their owner Late Shri.K.K.Birla was a Congress Rajya Sabha M.P.

    Aha! Another bunch of skeletons fall out of UPA's cupboard! Good work CAG! And hats off to Subramaniam Swamy. He had the courage and the raw guts to strip these scumbags naked. We need more people like him to lead the country. :india:

    Why am I not surprised that these channels NEVER cover anything serious including the complaint we gave about our monasteries in Arunachal being threatened.

    HT and NDTV are totally sold to the Govt.

    There political editor Sharma is their biggest PR machine!

    He comes on Times Now debates when the Congress chaps decline to come for these debates.
