Horrible reporting from India on Wikileaks

Percentage of time devoted to rural news on TVPercentage of time devoted to rural news on TV. These figures don't show more than 7% of the time for over 2/3 of India's population and YET are deceptive, because this time shown too is rarely about rural issues and more likely to be other selling news from rural locations.

Short post. Let me summarize that too.

  1. A vast majority of newspapers from India are running Wikileaks stories with inaccurate facts – particularly related with Pakistan.
  2. There is more sensationalism and no insight.
  3. Most of the newspapers are not linking to the original cables, so readers have no way of verifying what is being spoken about.

Indian media is now a nationalism flavored branch of Bollywood.
