double standards

I was wondering whether human beings have double standards by nature. How we break the law, pay bribes or do the morally unenforceable and how we criticize the entire system of governance for its corruption and inefficiency.

biased media

We believe what we read in the newspapers and see on the television. Being a part of the anti-reservation group I could not help but notice the difference in the coverage of the protests by NDTV where it was a small thing when compared to CNN-IBN which gave it lot of importance. Even the presenters of CNN-IBN looked like anti-reservations. Is it because Prannay Roy is a close pal of Brinda Karat (cpi) or is it because CNN-IBN is earning the loyalty of the educated and the so called elite of this country cause its only they who are targeted (till now) by marketers , its they who invest in stock markets (mostly).

I remember that when the Yoga guru Ramdev controversy broke out NDTV came out as anti-Ramdev (Brinda Karat angle) where as India TV ( Rajat Sharma) supported him and is still promoting him.
