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.
