    BJP has always been socialist on most of the issues. But neither right winger nor lefties would like to admit it for different reasons.

    Feminazi will backstab them at the last minute. Even News18 article gives credit to UPA not NDA. His right winger base will get roiled up and may not turn up to vote. All this hankering is probably just posturing. Unless I hear from a BJP spokesperson about this I don't believe it.

    NDTV might be changing its allegiances soon. BJP man at helm if Indian express is to be believed.

    http://indianexpress.com/article/in...ntrol-of-ndtv-prannoy-roy-radhika-roy-4855381/

    SpiceJet’s Ajay Singh set to take control of NDTV

    According to the source, Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director for SpiceJet, will have controlling stake in NDTV of around 40 per cent and the promoters Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy will hold around 20 per cent in the company.

    With its founders Prannoy Roy, Radhika Roy and promoter firm RRPR Holding Pvt Ltd facing a CBI probe for allegedly concealing a share transaction, NDTV is set to change hands, it is learnt. Sources confirmed to The Indian Express that Ajay Singh, co-founder and owner of SpiceJet who was part of the BJP’s 2014 poll campaign, has picked up majority holding in the news channel. When asked if NDTV has been sold to SpiceJet’s Ajay Singh, the source said, “Yes, the deal has been finalised and Ajay Singh will take control of NDTV along with editorial rights.”

    On June 5, the CBI conducted searches at the residences of the Roys. Calling the raids a “blatant attack on the freedom of the press,” NDTV, in a statement, said that the CBI had filed its FIR based on a “shoddy complaint” by a “disgruntled” former NDTV consultant who has not obtained a “single order from the courts.”
    According to the source, Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director for SpiceJet, will have controlling stake in NDTV of around 40 per cent and the promoters Prannoy Roy and Radhika Roy will hold around 20 per cent in the company.

    According to the data available with BSE, the promoter holding in NDTV as of June 2017 stood at 61.45 per cent. Public shareholding in the company stands at 38.55 per cent. The source said that Ajay Singh will also pick up NDTV’s debt of over Rs 400 crore and the total deal is valued at around Rs 600 crore.

    A part of the cash (up to Rs 100 crore) will also go to the Roys.

    When asked about the NDTV deal, a SpiceJet official said “it’s absolutely false and baseless.” Messages and emails sent to NDTV officials did not elicit any response.

    A first-generation entrepreneur, Singh acquired SpiceJet in January 2015 and has turned it around. Having coined BJP’s 2014 campaign slogan “abki baar Modi Sarkar,” Singh served as OSD to Pramod Mahajan during the first NDA government. It was in this period that he played an active role in the launch of DD Sports and was also behind the planning of DD News. Singh played a role in 2014 Lok Sabha campaign of the BJP as part of the core advertising/campaigning team.

    The leftists have already started investing in online platforms (scroll, wire, altnews, quint etc.), TV news is a dying industry and they can lie without supervision online.

    I agree with you partly. TV news infact TV is a dyeing industry. But it's not happening soon. May be 20 to 30 years down the line it's power would be reduced to what radio has today. But it won't die any time soon. TV news still has considerable audience especially Hindi news channels like NDTV Hindi has wide reach.

    Tabloidesque Hindi "news" channels blow NDTV Hindi etc. out of the water, and most of their viewership comes for sensationalised Bollywood stories rather than journalism. People are relying on social media and "free" platforms for their news and the definition of free-media is extremely loose (Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter ... ). Left is investing heavily in this domain whereas the right is loosing ground.

    Check out how many "comics" have their Twitter feed dedicated to right-bashing. While the right is busy doing gaali-galoch on two-bit activists' home page and giving them victim cred., the left is steadily creating an infrastructure of curtailed speech and pretty soon will have a similar monopoly on social media as it had on the traditional media for years.

    Such sh!tty TV channels will survive because TV subscription is package based. Selecting individual tv channels is costly, so we have to buy package.

    The left though less in numbers have dominated the narrative for a very long period. I guess they may be innovative. I have seen this since the Orkut days. You are talking sense when you say that they are building infrastructure to take the ideological battle to the next level.
    My previous observation was about TV news channels. I see there influence slowly diminishing but not going away any time soon. We still have considerable audience of radio and print media. So I assume TV will follow the same pattern and continue to exist. But right wing needs to prep itself for the battle of social media narrative before it's too late.. again.

    Trouble with online sites is the very visible lack of general support from public. People generally don't like negative stories of doom and gloom.
    The page ranking and all will give true story of how well received a site is and that will trouble them.
    With TV, the platform gives a much better stage than a website.

    Succeeding with an online newspaper is much more tough and can run them to irrelevance more quickly.
