Ravish Kumar USED to be a genuine reporter. Or maybe he was not and we kept thinking that he is honest one available.
The style of reporting of Ravish Kumar is second to none. Probably he is the best Hindi presenter who delivers quality content in his reports. But upon watching his shows for a few months, I realized that he has quality of “words” and presentation but lack facts or at least lack the content of the other side of the story.
Like most NDTV journalists, he has been trolled by a lot of people in social media. He thinks (rather propagates) that all this trolling is done by Modi. Modi has won election with a h-u-g-e mandate and there is no need for him to troll A FEW JOURNALISTS.
The so called “trolls” are the ones who got disappointed about the kind of journalism that was ongoing during UPA. There was a news of SCAM every few days and the media showed silent. Even when they spoke, they blamed the minister NOT Sonia Gandhi or Manmohan Singh.
Most of Indians (people like Ravish call us trolls) were disappointed to learn about Radia Tapes. This tapes showed us how UPA government (under Madame Sonia Gandhi), media reporters, businessmen, bureaucrats and agents worked in tandem to loot people.
There were many such instances where we saw that the main stream media is biased against the BJP and is pro Congress/Left.
NDTV in general and Ravish in particular are loosing viewership because of their apparent biased reporting. Ravish has come with a good way to tackle- Be unique. Blame Modi for everything.
Probably he learned this trick from Arvind Kejriwal. His day to day criticizing of Modi government on every issue shows his true color that he is simply against the government. Whenever there is an issue in a BJP ruled state, Ravish Kumar and media comes up with a communal angle whereas they are silent on issues in other states. Unfortunately, we have just two types of journalists in India:
- Blind supporters
- Blind opponents.
This should stop. India is missing a genuine journalism.
An ardent observer of life’s visual rhythms & curious on the SOEs that take place in the cosmos, I jot down my mind occasionally on yet another universe of the Internet.
An Engineer by profession and nationalist by heart, I write my heart and mind on anything and everything that comes to my way. I put my ideas on politics, religion, technical, green energy, stock markets, spirituality, open source, business and anything under the God’s green earth and above that too 😉
Being a Jack of all trades, I have my say on varied subjects 🙂
