‘The Hindu’ – Biased Reporting Continues

published on May 8, 2013

I would want you to bring to your attention both these reports. Its about the damages what media can do if you remain silent.

(REF LINK1 – PUBLISHED ON April 30, 2013 10:16 IST) http://www.rediff.com/news/slide-show/slide-show-1-karnataka-polls-2013-681-crorepatis-220-criminals/20130430.htm#4

Here it clearly shows that “55 out of the 217 (25 per cent) Congress candidates have declared criminal cases against them followed by 48 out of 215 (22 per cent) JD-S candidates, 44 out of 197 (22 per cent) KJP candidates, 45 out of 218 (21 per cent) BJP candidates, 21 out of 171 (12 per cent) BSRC candidates and 2 out of 22 (9 per cent) Loksatta Party candidates. Out of the 11 independent candidates analysed, 4 candidates have declared criminal cases against themselves.”

(REF LINK2 – PUBLISHED ON April 13, 2013) Then you visit THE HINDU’s coverage. “10 BJP, 6 Congress candidates are facing criminal charges “. http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/karnataka/10-bjp-6-congress-candidates-are-facing-criminal-charges/article4611486.ece

The headline title combined with the reach the paper has does the damage. And no one questions. Secondly, why does a paper like THE HINDU needs another agency like KEW to to do its research? Doesn’t it boast of having one of the finest set of professionals working under it?  Shouldn’t papers like THE HINDU pay for such reporting?
