Amitabh Bachchan on his blog: "Why, just the other day I had a message from Rajdeep Sardesai of CNN IBN asking me if I could mention one of his programmes on my site on twitter !!! So . yes .. my numbers are large on Twitter . 1.88 million followers .. largest in India and fourth largest in Asia .. an attractive reach out to prospectives !!! But they are not large to put out your matter. I shall decide what I wish to and what I do not."

MORE MEDIA WATCH BRIEFS

Some sixty  well-known directors, actors, screenwriters, editors, producers, lyricists and others have put out an appeal to "vote secular". No party names mentioned, of course. The list includes Vishal Bhardwaj, Govind Nihalani, Saeed Mirza, Zoya Akhtar, Nandita Das, Anand Patwardhan, Rakesh Sharma, Hansal Mehta, Saket Chaudhary, Mahesh Bhatt, Shubha Mudgal, and Kundan Shah.

Loksatta today (April 18) reported EC serving notices to 146 Lok Sabha candidates in Maharashtra, including Praful Patel, for "paid news" use in the poll campaign but no media organisation receiving payments was identified.

A TV viewer writes: 'A BJP ad across TV channels, shows Narendra Modi telling viewers in India that all they have to do is press a particular button on the EVM, and the vote would go directly to him. This is false as the vote goes to the candidate in the constituency where the voter is enrolled. Surely the channels have a duty to check the content they are broadcasting, even if it is a paid advertisement?' Maybe Mr Modi has really begun to believe that this is a presidential election.

Narendra Modi's celebratory interview on India TV which had an audience which chanted 'Modi, Modi' has claimed a resignation. Q W Naqvi, Editorial Director of India TV resigned the morning after the episode was aired obviously discomfited by the tone of the programme. See the Hoot blog.
