NDTV Milking Fake Tweets!

My opinion that NDTV shows are not impartial still holds because their anchors (English and Hindi) continue being predictable by following the same strategy:

    * Dominate and browbeat guests who disagree, or belong to NDA. The way Nidhi Razdan ill-treated Rajiv Pratap Rudy of BJP in a March 2011 show, is a perfectly good example.
    * Politely allow excessive time to guests who are saying “the right thing”. Usually, Congressmen and Communists get sufficient time to blow their trumpet.
    * Selectively edit sound bytes from the person they target. This ALWAYS happens when NDTV is forced to show Narendra Modi (as in the case of Anna Hazare praising him recently)

To this list I can now add:

    * Shameless, blatant manipulation of social media such as Twitter to support their viewpoint by padding their shows with favourable tweets
    * Misleading viewers into thinking that selective social media extracts telecast on NDTV are a truthful representation of public opinion
