Media In India/elsewhere -3
The atrocious secular media is totally anti-national and anti-Hindu. They completely blocked the message of Advani's rath yathra but drives clevage within the BJP

[url="http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/bangalore/Advani-rebukes-BSY-in-public/articleshow/10548529.cms"][size="4"]Advani rebukes BSY in public[/size][/url]
.I beg to differ. Not only the print media but also the electronic media has given substantial coverage to the Rath Yatra. I have no information about the private TV Channels of South India, but up in the North there are a number of TV channels which are pro BJP.

Ms.Shaviti may be aware that BJP is quite a resourceful political outfit of India. It can finance any number of TV Channels and newspapers, just like other All India Political parties.I do agree that a number of supporters of the party are feeling uncomfortable with the present developments in Karnataka. Let us face the truth; corruption is not confined to any particular political party. It is today present in every sphere of public activity, of course with varying degree. So the anti corruption drive has to be directed against all, irrespective of party affiliation.

With regard to the in fights within the BJP, it is a known fact that there is ego clash between top leaders and this has given rise to groups and sub groups within the party. This aspect is nothing specific to the BJP; it is present in all political parties in different forms.

Of all parties the CPM lost the elections in West Bengal due to rampant corruption in its ranks. We Have to accept that power and corruption goes side by side.
Here is something about Pankaj Mishra.

From the current [url="http://www.outlookindia.com/article.aspx?279166"]Outlook Bibliofile Gossip column[/url]

Quote:Pankaj Mishra has put himself on the firing line before with his reviews—remember Salman Rushdie, and more recently, Patrick French, who reacted to his review in Outlook of his India: A Portrait by pointing out how the Allahabad boy has climbed to his “present position at the heart of the British establishment, married to the cousin of the Prime Minister, David Cameron”

[url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pankaj_Mishra"]Wiki[/url] says that

Quote:He is married to Mary Mount, a cousin of British Prime Minister David Cameron and he divides his time between Delhi, Shimla and London.[8] His father-in-law is Sir William Robert Ferdinand Mount, 3rd Baronet, and Eton-educated Conservative Party politician and former head of Margaret Thatcher's policy unit.

Looks like he has travelled quite far.

Media is a social phenomenon and is part of the communications branch. We need to understand how to crititique it from a sociology point of view and then from an Indian interests point of view for the language of criticism is developed from Western view point.

For starters read the works of a Ducth scientist Van Dijk on Newspapers.

Extraordinary lecture by P. Sainath. Till now I just knew him through his articles.

Thank rhytha!

Not sure how is this going to turn out; already Network18 has a recorded and substantial anti-Hindu stance (even the movies funded by them have crypto-christian elements). Now, they've acquired the very nationalistic regional channel network of ETV which broadcasts responsible content (not sure about AP but at least in the Hindi belt that seems to be the case). Apparently the last few bastions of nationalistic media houses are also going to be sold out to cryptos. The fact that its backed by Reliance makes it no better;as such Reliance only favors what appears profitable to them. So apparently only internet would be left for independent opinion.

Quote:Here’s how: Broadcaster Network 18 on Tuesday announced plans to acquire various channels (some fully, some partially) of ETV for Rs2,100 crore, using money lent by Independent Media Trust, which is promoted by Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL).

ETV, promoted by Hyderabad-based media baron Ramoji Rao, is also substantially owned by RIL through its investment vehicles.

Network18, with a market cap of Rs1,881 crore as of Tuesday, will make a rights issue of Rs5,400 crore (Rs2,700 crore each in group companies TV18 Broadcast and Network18 Media & Investments).
There is nothig to worry. There are several channels fully devoted to Hindu religious and cultural affairs.In the present day world, we cannot insulate children from western ideas and ways of life. One has to move with time and in the process old values will give way to the new ones. Many of us from the older generation will be able to absorb to some extent the new and foreign ways and ideas, while some will remain mute spectators.

In Delhi on this ne year eve this change in our social values were very much evident outside the pubs in the Malls of Gurgaon and Noida. While in Gurgaon, the Police had to resort to Lathi charge to bring the situation under control and prevent molastation of a youngt lady out for a celebration with her boyfirend, in Noida Sec-18 market there was a brief exchange of fire between two groups of youngsters.This is just a glimps of modern and contemporary India.
The english media in India is a roit, the spin they put is depressing.

If there was a "christomedia double standards/More signs that the media is christo" thread, this would go there.

1. Note how it all becomes magically understandable, acceptable, deserved (even heroic?) when christo mob lynches muslim rapist.

No bleeding hearts presenting this christian lynching as "innocent muslims victimised by communal mob" (but O Wee=NL expression if Hindoos meted out summary justice to christoislamaniac criminals for attacking Hindoo kind):


Quote:Mob Lynches Rape Suspect After Storming Jail

Protesters break into a jail, drag the suspect to a clock tower and beat him to death while taking photos on their phones.

09:18, UK, Friday 06 March 2015


The crowd filmed and took photos of the killing on their phones

A rape suspect was kidnapped from jail, strung up and beaten to death by a mob in northeastern India.

The man was accused of raping a female student multiple times - but had yet to stand trial.

He had reportedly been held at the Dimapur Central Prison in Nagaland since 24 February.

The Hindustan Times newspaper said the crowd "tore down two gates and took custody".

The suspect was then dragged to Dimapur's clock tower, where he was stripped, beaten and pelted with stones.

Photographs show the apparently gleeful mob capturing the incident on their phones.

They had reportedly marched four miles to the prison as part of a protest against the high rate of sexual violence in the country.

"The situation is very tense," said Superintendent Meren Jamir. "We are trying our very best to restore order."

The suspect, reportedly a 35-year-old car dealer, was also accused of being an illegal immigrant from Bangladesh.

The Indian government recently sparked outrage by banning a British-made documentary about the gang-rape of a student in 2012.

Officials even asked YouTube to block access to the film - but more than 100,000 people have managed to watch it online.

Promoted Stories

(Amazing how blame is insinuated onto the current Indian non-christian govt - not yet christian at any rate - for the christian mob lynching of the islamaniac.)

Of course the Indian christomedia won't report on the above let alone moralise.

But if, instead of a bloodthirsty christomob lynching an innocent muslim for alleged rape, it had been a Hindu group who took understandable revenge on a christoislamaniac rapist at last (after the incessant christoislamic rapes of native heathen women), then the Indian christomedia would be all over the incident, bleeding tears for the "poor innocent christoislamaniac rapist". And if it had been an illegal Bangladeshi to boot, christomedia and christocommunits would have demanded instant naturalisation for the islamaniac rapist's family, and used the faux-sympathy of christomedia's blitzkrieg to emotionally blackmail Hindus into total tolerance for all BD islamaniac violence and criminality against Hindus and Hindu women specially hereafter. Not to mention christomedia and christo parties would have ensured that the rapist's family would receive a Bharatratna or Padmashri or something (forgot which prize the spontaneously-combusted missionary Staines' wife bagged), been gifted land and dollops of taxpayers' money and more free rations for all illegal BD islamaniacs.

But this happened in Nagaland instead, which is almost entirely christian, having bloodily ethnically cleansed and outright-genocided the native heathens of the place. Any mob in Nagaland is likewise entirely christian (well, duh). So Indian christomedia won't report on the above, and certainly won't condemn it.

Rather, like UK SkyNews was careful enough to do, *if* at all the Indian christomedia were to report it as a major headline, it would not remotely call into question the morality of the mob in lynching a man suspected of a crime or to linger on the fact that he was one of the alleged "minorities" that christomedia always champions (doubly so if it committed violent crimes against Hindus). And the fact that he is an islamaniac only invites christian sympathy for the criminal when victims are Hindu and when the retaliating mob is Hindu, not when mobs are christist.

Actually, were the christomedia to dwell on this particular incident, it would sooner present the christian mob as heroes and that christianism is therefore better for women on account of it avenging the islamaniac jihad against christian women, and contrast this with dhimmi secular/progressive or deheathenised Hindus who are famous for doing nothing (except whenever heathen Hindus do take revenge, the christomedia is out in full force demanding that Hindus be restrained from "rioting" against the poor "innocent" islamaniac terrorists. I.e. if Hindoos avenge Hindoo women, they are labelled "anti-minority/communal" and punished by the christian inquisition, if they don't do anything for their women, because their hands are so tied, they're labelled anti-women and christianism is held up as the protector or at least avenger of women's honour. Cheap mind trick).

Like the christian genocide of heathens in India's northeast has been completely and carefully silenced by the christomedia, so too will the full import and the between-lines details of the above news be.

More proof that Indian christomedia is a powerful PR machine for christianism esp catholicism: Indian christomedia does pro-christian PR and silences christian atrocities and genocides against heathens (and even lynchings of christians' own dear brothers in monotheism), whereas the same christomedia is virulently anti-Hindu.

Same double-handedness in christomedia where "freedom of expression" is concerned: christoislamics have free reign to abuse Hindus and their heathenism, but Hindus may not say a word against christoislamoronism, or will get the police set upon them:

- e.g. islamics got a Hindu lawyer arrested for alleged blasphemy against islamania on facebook. Christomedia carefully avoided reporting on this altogether. Compare with the staged melodrama over evangelist's daughter Doniger's anti-Hindu book being pulped by its own publisher to incite false sympathy with their christo cause.

- e.g. christomedia and christo cinema censor Leela Samson went all out to promote the anti-heathen and pro-islamaniac-monotheism dawaganda of PK, but christos are all frantically preparing to gang up to get banned the western (British?) play exposing the christian murder of the catholic nun Abhaya (and exposing christian genocide of heathenism all over the world). The Rajeev2004 blog had some tweets on this last news some time before my holidays.

- e.g. christomedia champions Teesta Seetalvad despite her criminality but silences Taslima Nasreen for being an ex-muslim critical of islam

- e.g. the christian convert "Perumal Murugan's" compulsive lying against Hindus and their heathenism, his own choice to withdraw his obvious crap - clearly fearing exposure of his twaddle as twaddle so that gullibles don't fall for his output again - followed by the christomedia's championing of his lies and libel under the christian ruse of "freedom of expression". Compare that with the very recent news of churches in Bangalore setting the cops on a Bangalorean who allegedly questioned the nonsense of christianity on facebook. The church wants him disappeared for his "blasphemy". More proof that christianism=islam.


Quote:City Police arrest Bengaluru based former telecom executive for hate comments

Jaideep Shenoy,TNN | Mar 4, 2015, 09.22 PM IST

MANGALURU: Mangaluru City Police on Tuesday have arrested Sriram Yadapadithaya, 27, a former telecom company executive and resident of Balaji Nagar, Uttarahalli in Bengaluru on charges of posting objectionable message on social media networking site against a particular religious community. Sriram arrested in Bengaluru was brought to the city and produced before the jurisdictional court on Wednesday, which remanded him in to judicial custody.

Fr William Menezes, public relations officer of Mangaluru Catholic Diocese had lodged complaint with Mangaluru City Police against Sriram based on his comments on Facebook. The complaint alleged that the comments questioned the basic tenets of Christianity. The comments, Fr William said were also an affront to the Indian Constitution which upheld secularism and also created a situation of creating a rift between two communities and causing law and order problem.

Apparently, it's not just christians in medieval christian Europe who were banned (on pain of death, but at least on threat of incarceration) from questioning christianism. Seems the same christo-blasphemy laws are in effect in unchristian India: non-christians in majority-unchristian India have no right to question the tenets of christianism.

But then, what else can one expect from a state where the KryptoKrystoKangress still rules. Whether islamic sharia is in force in Karnataka or not, *christian* sharia clearly is.

And then there's this ex-christian atheist often mentioned by the Rajeev2004 blog, whom the church also attacked (again using the christo blasphemy laws) for exposing its fraud:



Quote:By Cory Doctorow at 9:12 am Fri, Apr 13, 2012


Sanal Edamaruku, an Indian skeptic, went to Mumbai and revealed that a "miraculous" weeping cross was really just a bit of statuary located near a leaky drain whose liquid reached it by way of capillary action. The local Catholic Church demanded that he retract his statements, and when he refused, they had him arrested for blasphemy.

The christomedia is very silent on all this too. (More proof of how much of christomedia is catholic is in point 2 below.)

2. Much of the christomedia must be catholic media besides: Recently the Vatican released a statement condemning plastic surgery by comparing it with the burqa. (See the UK's Independent paper's "Plastic surgery is a 'burqa made of flesh', says Vatican document".) That is, the Vatican very clearly attached a negative connotation to the burkha. Not that I care, except the Indian christomedia maintained dead silence on that news as far as I'm aware.

Meanwhile it attacked the BJP - Modi in particular I believe - when he earlier made mention of a Burqa:


'Shashi Tharoor, loyal courtier at the durbar, a burqa is simply a veil !'

15/07/2013 23:40:24 Dr. Vijaya Rajiva


Shashi Tharoor, as usual betrays his class prejudice against Narendra Modi who used the word 'burqa' to describe the veil that the Congress has drawn over its corruption and misgovernance.


Christo congress and esp christomedia's silence on the Vatican's *clearly* negative statement on burqa - let's just call it an outright catholic attack on islam - versus christocongress and christomedia's hysteria over the relatively connotation-less use of burqa in ultra-secular Modi's usage of the term indicates that much of India's christomedia is Catholic Q.E.D. (and catholic Sonia's congressi govt is obviously catholic).
