The media has in LARGE part stayed silent on this issue – possibly one of the worst scandals to hit India in the recent past — where the respected field of journalism and popular/admired reporters have been exposed as nothing better than the same politicians they often criticize. Apart from the issue surfacing on a few blogs, only The Hindu has been a fair observer, as the media is supposed to be!
Here is an excellent opinion piece on this scam: http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/lead/article939979.ece?homepage=true
The GreatBong has a very nice satire on this issue: http://greatbong.net/2010/12/01/raktha-hoon-main-khulla/
Finally, a video for some context on the issue: http://tinyurl.com/2wua5t7 – notice how Barkha Dutt avoids answering any question in a straight-forward manner!
Well, now all my hopes cling to the pro-China Hindu….that is life!
