The Hindi press’ writing on pollution has been good but if it were more sustained and went deeper into the causes, the result would be terrific.
How state governments, politicians, and indirect corporate interests have wormed their way into community radio stations, violating the spirit of the original intention.
His journalism apart, he was a connoisseur of the arts a bon vivant, who enjoyed the good things of life, and a fun loving soul who was a good mimic.

The Indian Express reports   that the Amicus Curate to the HC  submitted before the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Saturday that the Delhi-based journalist Tariq Anwar  who filed a report for Firstpost on the alleged cases of gangrape in Murthal, Haryana, had produced false and fabricated evidence, and should be prosecuted for doing so.  He  made the submission on the basis of a report by a special investigation team (SIT) which found that the voice in the audio recording submitted by the reporter was not that of the victim.  This Hoot report in February this year had found other reporting of this case also problematic.

 

The BJP is transparent about its media dislikes.  In a programme "Ground Zero- Cash crunch" that Rajdeep Sardesai was doing on India Today on December 1, pay day, he asked Smriti Irani on the steps of Parliament for her reaction. Her reply was "Rajdeep the whole world knows that I do not speak to you much and I am surprised that Rajdeep Sardesai is stalking a woman!"  A journalist asking questions is  a stalker?  Unfazed, Rajdeep replied : "But Ma'am I am just asking you a question". The next person to react to him was Kiron Kher who said "We know your biases Mr Sardesai...why don't you go and find one ATM where they are giving money". Then came Ravi Shankar Prasad "Mr Sardesai you are very critical of Mr Modi we know but try to be positive sometimes..."  What a brigade.
