This was origionally posted by me on 13 June 2012. Nothing has changed from then to now. What you watch in piecemeal seems plausible but when you view all this at one go you realize what is dished out is not “NEWS” http://ioretradingindia.blogspot.in/2012/06/when-horizontal-became-new-vertical-for.html
Kangaroo Court is a term we have heard many a times before, lately it is being used with greater frequency. Doubt if we have ever seen one function anywhere other than our Television sets. Outstanding performer of this is Justice Doornob Gussami of TimesNow @TheNewshour Monday through Friday 9PM. Let’s move on and see for ourselves what this is all about.
About two years back one evening before getting up from the computer I tweeted “All Rise Court of Arnab Goswami is in session now.” Little realizing, this would become a standard call sign and lead us to this article.
This is not a baseless claim, nor a fashion statement of media bashing. I am going to place before all of you videos from Times Now on various issues and will leave it to you to judge for yourself, if what is stated by me is indeed correct? Surely many of you must have heard, “Nation wants to know?”, “Nation is asking.”, “Don’t politicize the issue.”, “India First.”, “Your Channel”, “Exclusive and Times Now is the 1st Channel to access this.” These clichés have left many wondering what exactly do they mean and what should a political party do? Further how should we as viewers react when we are convinced its deceit of the highest order being practiced by the anchor and channel?
Now please watch how Times Now treats a Lokayukt report on mining involving B.S Yeddurappa
Goa mining scam.
Other means employed are not permitting BJP spokesperson to complete their point. Speak along while BJP spokespersons are making their statement. Start all so called debate by questioning BJP as if it was the party whose government was in office. Demanding BJP to support Congress government as a national duty but not question the Congress government for their failings.
Arnab Goswami has even tried to reinvent civic by declaring opposition parties to be second class citizens of India. Mandate to govern is with the party in majority in Lok Sabha, mandate of the party in opposition is to ensure that Government is alert and awake or the rug be pulled from under its feet. Arnab Goswami believes this is unfair as opposition is slave to the party in majority.
This channel and its horde of breathless reporters will relentlessly pursue the top rung personnel of all political parties except Congress; one can actually hear their knees knock when name of Sonia Gandhi is mentioned. Has this person or the channel ever conducted a free wheeling interview with this individual who is president of Congress for over a decade and a half? The answer is NO.
Here is further evidence of what has been stated in this article.
Home Minister has his petition in election case dismissed by the High Court 29 charges in all have been leveled against the Home Minister 2 were dismissed 27 upheld. Timesnow only focus is on the 2 dismissed and not 27 that were upheld. Also questions BJP on their track record. Was it needed?
Debate: Chidambaram case continues –
The screen shots speak for themselves.
Before I conclude this post please do watch these videos of the so called debate on The News Hour to all the aspiring and existing newscaster, if you are convinced that this is how news should be broadcast and is in the best interest of the consumer then do emulate the channel and the man. Let me assure you just as we can predict the topic and line of thinking for the two of them. Same fate awaits those of you who do follow in his foot step.
This is not all that this channel does it also puts out distorted news.
The National Investigating Agency (NIA) brought up the remark in apex court and Supreme Court judges called the statement ‘unnecessary’.The apex court said such remarks should not be made as they are derogatory.
Hope you enjoyed reading and watching this
