    Ethics of journalism is to report the truth with out any prejudice, but what we see in Indian media is completely opposite - we can see this every day, best example is the recent episode of sex scandal by the congress spokes person - why our media kept mum when it's very apparent the hero of the CD is Congress Leader & Spokesperson, Senior Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi...but some time back in the episode of porn watching in Karnataka and Gujarat the entire media came to road dancing naked and gunning for the head of BJP legislators, I am not supporting the BJP legislators for watching porn in assembly house, if they did so then they should have no right to represent their assembly - but did the media gave chance for the accused MLAs to tell their view what happened??, in-fact the forensic lab gave report on the Gujarat assembly episode as doctored and gave clean chit to the Gujarat accused MLAs, but the media was abusing all sort of things against the BJP MLAs even before any thing proved against them, how many of us receive so many unwanted forwards from friends on our mobile and some are very explicit and we may have opened them unintentionally in public places...

    Below is another classic example of unethical journalism by a senior journalist Soutik Biswas (BBC Delhi correspondent), he wrote the below article few days back in BBC with total hate and prejudice, he saw some uncooked article against Modi and thought he has got an great opportunity to defame the credibility of Modi, and Soutik Biswas cheep mentality didn't even allow him to do some basic research on the authenticity of economic growth data mentioned in the article, he simply copied the uncooked original article from the Buisness-standard.com and posted in BBC with a heading

    "Is Gujarat's red hot economy a myth?"


    Now today the same cheep journalist Soutik Biswas is made to eat his own words because of the real growth story of Gujarat, we all know when Modi took over the leader ship of Gujarat he faced one of the biggest catastrophe the earth quake - but Modi shown his administrative capability in the earth quake rehabilitation work and even the UN praised the Gujarat government that time for their excellent rehabilitation work, also unlike other Indian high growth states Gujarat doesn't have any natural resource or suitable climate for agricultural growth but still the state is able to achieve the highest agriculture growth among all leading states...Below is the latest back-tracked article by the unethical journalist Soutik Biswas..

    "Gujarat IS a red hot economy"

    BBC News - Gujarat IS a red hot economy

    Shame on you Soutik Biswas (BBC Delhi correspondent)

    Well, Karnataka MLAs were watching a porn clip in the Assembly and were suspended the same day. One fact that was conveniently ignored is that Congress MLAs were also watching the same clip as reported on local channels. On this incident NDTV had a program titled `Should porn be legalised`. Should they also have had a discussion such as `Should prostitution be legalised` when veteran leader and Andhra Governor ND Tiwari was caught fornicating in Raj Bhavan. Abhishek Manu Singhvi sex CD was ignored by MSM until it went viral on social media and ignoring it would have looked odd.

    It is not prejudice it is business sense

    Congress being at the power in Delhi ; it makes more business sense to do boot licking
    of the Congress party for these journalists

    Prejudices are what fools use for reason and think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.

    Even when Congress was not in power, during the NDA time, these media houses were hardly different. Some answers may be found in Yoginder Sikand's article posted the other day.

    Actually, there is more than prejudice at play here -

    a] Through paid media an `honest mistake` was sought to be made and perhaps perpetuated when the GDP growth figure of Jharkhand was replaced in an article for Gujarat.

    b] This was corrected when social media noted and commented upon.

    No wonder social media is sought to be controlled. Social media played a big part in the Arab Spring and seems like it will be a force in India too where the MSM is as corrupt as the powers that be.

    Modi is an excellent administrator and far more deserving of a national role than Mulayam/Akhilesh/Rahul/Mamata and other idiots. Gujarat has shown double digit growth in agriculture as well as industry - a rare achievement considering this is an arid state with few water resources. Gujarat is a power surplus state selling power to other states. These achievements are hard to digest for left liberals jholawalla types, hence their constant attacks on this man.

    Why cry? Use legal options to sue those who are spreading false data.
