The Truth behind Face the Nation – CNN-IBN fakes live debate with Sri Sri ‘s recorded interview!

published on November 14, 2011

Airing a fabricated and totally biased cut-and-paste panel discussion as a desperate attempt to silence and tarnish some one of high standing who may disagree with you ideologically… this is the pathetic and highly deplorable tactics some of the media houses are resorting to in our country.

A very serious ethical issue here is that the defendant does not have any chance to defend herself/himself against any of the (probably false) allegations leveled against her/him. A clear attempt to malign the image of a responsible citizen by influential vested interests.

This is exactly what Ms. Sagarika Ghose and the CNN-IBN crew did to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a leading light in the fight against corruption!

What was a one-on-one interview at around 3 PM was aired on the same day at 10 PM as a live panel discussion!!

Ms. Ghose acted as if Sri Sri was on the line and was speaking to her. She shamelessly even posed questions to him and even invited his response to the live panel discussions!! A close look at the video shows that he was actually not wording any of the statements correctly. Hence the video was made at another time and the interview taken at another!!

To think that the public or the rival networks are foolish and will not hit out at this cut and paste job shows the arrogance and naivette of the broadcasters. To think that Sri Sri’s followers will not catch on to it is also foolish.

Lets hope that Ms. Ghose and the CNN-IBN crew pay the price of this misdemeanor. CNN-IBN has opened itself to law suits that may run into multi-million dollar damages for such a blatant abuse of power just in case Sri Sri’s office decides so!!

Will the channel axe her or will it let her hang around like Ms. Barkha Dutt just to resurrect her another day? A small prize for their loyalty and political clout!
