Underachiever Indian Media Asleep At The Wheel
Why do we need a foreign media publication to take on our governments or any dispensation for that matter, every time, like the TIME magazine’s recent criticism of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh or The Washington Post’s description of Singh as a silent premier and a tragic figure!
How much time the Indian media needs to stand on its own feet and call a spade a spade? We have just seen our Parliament’s latest Monsoon Session being totally washed out because of the tiff over the motionlessly non-speaking prime minister Singh’s acts.
But if Manmohan Singh’s non speaking proves his guilt, the Indian media houses not speaking proves their guilt as well. If the prime minister and his cabinet are inefficient, I dare say the Indian media owners and their team of editors are also equally inefficient.
