Nalin Mehta’s impressive knowledge of the television industry is evident in his latest book but bias and inconsistencies mar it.

Sometimes a TV anchor's ignorance grates. On July 31, on CNN IBN anchor Ananya, while reeling out  reactions to  the FTII students strike, said that a critic had questioned U R Ananthmurthy's appointment as FTII chairman in an earlier term, since he had nothing to do with the world of films . This is completely untrue.  The anchor repeated this falsehood as if it was true!  U R Ananthmurthy was a writer who won the Sahitya academy Jnanpith award and was nominated for the Man Booker.  He was also awarded over the years  for his film-related writing:   Best Story Writer for Ghatashraddha (1977)  and  Best Dialogue Writer  for Avasthe (1987) apart from awards for Samskara and Mouni.
