    I surf channels during new prime time to get a holistic view and observe how news gets manipulated.

    I am seeing a general despondency settling in with the Congress spokesman including quasi-spokesman like that Sharmaji of HT.

    And Rekuka Choudry is getting more and more of being the theatre queen she is, with waggling her head, quivering her voice, eyes bulging out as if it will detach from its muscular retention and fall on the floor and total irrelevant tangential claptrap!

    Even Mani Shankar Aiyer is stone sobre and very tired looking as if he has come from a huge trek and has not had the good fortune of having a bath!

    Congress was a good political party, but of late, they have totally failed in governance (even that is forgivable) but when blatant untruths are pandered or visible and perceivable obfuscation is trotted out with elan, then one realises that the Congress has lost its compass and is floundering rudderless with the Captain at sleep at the ship's Wheel!

    Prime Time news is such a circus that I get time on the TV since those in my family who used to grumble find it more exciting and ludicrous than their soap of Saas Kanhi Badboo thi!

    Don't know about US, but Nielsen is going to be kicked out from India.

    Ray Sir, perhaps if we had had a strong opposition party from the beginning, Congress would not be the pathetic shadow it is today. Part of the problem is Indian democracy has been one party rule pratically with Congress having been in power around 80% of the time.

    Look at your own state - for whatever reason the people voted communists for 34 long years and they practically destroyed the industry as well as the work ethic in WB.

    Politicians need to be kept away from the teats of power periodically to keep them sane and normal!

    Nielsen is crap anyways. They randomly place some monitering device in few setop boxes and pass of the data. Only 1% would be monitered what channel they watched so you see its bs.

    I watch times now :)
