Is INDIAN media the worst on earth? Well, judge for yourself!
THOROUGHLY CORRUPT, DESPICABLE AND BEYOND LAW: THE "RASCALS & SWINE" WHO MISRULE THE "LARGEST (BOGUS) DEMOCRACY" ON EARTH need their media to speak highly of them, to praise them day and night.
It is unbelievable but true!
The corrupt have a lot to fear from the media. Indian media "killed off" the REAL patriot, Nathuram Godse while raising the profile of TRAITOR Nehru sky high. That media made TREASON look like "DESH SEWA" AND "DESH BHAKTI". That was the power of media. Hitler and NEHRU had one thing in common: use of media through intimidation and INDUCEMENTS to project black as white. Many would recall the sealing of newspaper offices that dared to opporse one of the Dynastic gangsters. Editors were arrested, threatened with assassination, their electric supply cut off, whole editions confiscated and put through the shredders. An INTIMIDATED AND TERRORISED Hindu nation watched helplessly how freedom of speech, even thought was murdered.
Invariably they "bought" the media, sometimes, however, they lashed out in full fury. Many gentle Indians dare NOT recall that EMERGENCY even in their dreams.
We must administer some brain tonic to the half dead Hindu nation to remind us all of the total BLACKOUT AND CENSORSHIP ON NEWS FROM EAST PUNJAB in that week in 1984 when the Indian Army (MERCENARY "EUNUCHS IN UNIFORM") invaded our own territory of EAST Punjab and attacked Godlen Temple in Amritsar.
We rememmber how media raised Nehru's profile from a Bandit to a Hero. We recall how media turned the political "WITCH" Indira into "Indira is INDIA"!
We know how the media has defied all laws of decency to praise and praise the BOFORS CHOR. No aspersion was ever cast on his foreign contacts. No accusing finger on his military expedition to Sri Lanka to kill the Tamils of INDIAN origin.
We know the media overlooking or simply glossing over Supreme Court rulings given like the DOGS of the ruling party. "Gandhis can kill thousands (Indira's attack on Golden Temple and "S.o.B" Rajiv encouraging the massacre of thousands of innocent Sikhs in Delhi) but if THE PEOPLE kill one, they run the risk of being HANGED TO DEATH.
We know the media in India putting all the killings in South Kashmir in small print on the back page or not reporting at all.
We know how they covered up the MOHAMMEDAN Feroze who, in his MOHAMMEDAN way, eloped with Indira, but portrayed him as a Parsi by Faith and Gandhi by kinship.
We know how they ignore the background and loyalty of ITALIAN BORN Sonia MAINO.
Not one INDIAN journalist has been despatched by any editor to go to Italy to look at Sonia's family background and publish her family's connections with MUSSOLINI. Not one editor has published the family tree of Indira's MUSLIM husband FEROZE KHAN. Thanks to their timid, compromising and unscrupulous journalists and editors, the Indians are the most ignorant people on earth, real MORONS.
That is the verdict on the media of Hindustan. "Despicable rats, vermin, coolies and serfs" of the RULING establishment of India which is programmed to WIPE OUT THE HINDUS and raise ISLAM and ITALY, instead.
We also know the Silence of CRIMINALS (by media) to go along with the line, "India became independent on August 15, 1947," instead of reporting, "INDIA SUFFERED HER WORST EVER DEFEAT IN HISTORY when she signed the UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER OF FIVE PROVINCES TO ISLAM and also retained all the Muslims back."
So, how was the Indian COOLIE media "bought" or intimidated by the government?
Just as one would make a dog follow him, by throwing crumbs. Now please read on to see these crumbs that have made the Indian media the WORST ON EARTH. (Very few honourable exceptions!)
To those who think the rest of the world is the same, we say, "Read the BRITISH press and see how they have torn billionaire LAKSHMI MITTAL to bits, and chased the millionaire HINDUJA BROTHERS to the bitter end. They could not "buy" or intimidate the media into silence. (By the way, the British media do not hunt, chase, pursue and disembowel only the corrupt and devious INDIANS!)
PRESS COUNCIL OF INDIA'S REPORT ON 'FAVOR'S TO JOURNALISTS
The Press Council of India has held that government accommodation, confessional land, free air tickets and company shares-- being given to journalists, news agencies and newspaper establishments and owners, were 'undue favor's. (That means utterly disgraceful, shameful and despicable!)
The information received from various sources reveals that the press persons/newspaper establishments are enjoying the following amenities:
1. Accommodation Government Housing/Flats/Land
2. Allotment of Shares in Companies.
3. Bus Travel/Rail Travel/Transport
4. Foreign Travel
5. Free Air Tickets
6. Cash Disbursement from Chief Ministers Discretionary Fund
7. Financial Assistance
8. Funds for Media Center and the like
9. Grants to journalists associations
10. Gift Cheque by advertisement agencies for publication of press notes of their clients.
11. Other gifts
12. Free Parking
13. Guest Hospitality
14. Import of duty free cameras and computers
15. Insurance Premium
16. Jobs to relatives
18. Nomination on Committees
20. Pensionary benefits
21. Donation of funds to Press Clubs
25. Government and public authority advertisements
26. Election facilities
27. Meeting expenses for journalists' conventions, seminars, etc.
28. Inviting press parties
29. Publication material (issued) during press conferences
30. Training (Based on a circular by AINEF) "
The Council, which undertook a comprehensive study of the subject between 1985 and 1995, concluded that free and concessional bus, rail and other transport facilities given to journalists also fell in the category of favours.
It observed that free air travel provided by companies, corporations and airlines was an inducement to write favourably about their products and services, and hence, marred independent reporting.
The Council noted that proprietors of newspapers, instead of journalists and editors, were accompanying the President, Vice-President, Prime Minister and the External Affairs Ministry officials, on their foreign trips.
Newspapers, it recommended, should take care to nominate eligible persons for such trips.
The Commission also observed that indiscriminate disbursement of money from the discretionary funds of the Chief Ministers encouraged unfaithfulness to the mission of journalism and promoted corrupt practices.
The following are the recommendations:
The Committee (of the Council on undue favors to journalists) came to the conclusion that the following facilities so far being extended by the government and the authorities, companies and corporations would amount to favours subject to the observations made here under.
1. ACCOMMODATION: GOVERNMENT HOUSING/FLATS/LAND
The Committee is of the view that it is the responsibility of the newspaper establishments to provide accommodation to its employees. The Committee noted that the Punjab and Haryana High Court in its judgement has held that journalists are not entitled to government accommodation as they are not employees of the government. The Court has said that there were no rules, regulations or guidelines governing such allotment with the Chandigarh administration. The Court observed that the existing rules were only meant for government servants and there was no question of bringing the journalists in its ambit. The Committee further noted that the Central Government in its action taken report on the suggestions of the Second Press Commission to the effect that: no further housing facility should be provided to the journalists and the existing allotments of the government accommodation in the National Capital and the States should be charged for at non-subsidised rates and phased out as the present occupants leave-- had recorded that no further housing facility would be provided to journalists and in respect of the existing allotments, rent would be charged at non-subsidised rates. This decision was taken nearly a decade ago. However, the allotments continued.
The Committee also noted that the governments were giving prime land to the newspaper owners at nominal price. Some of the newspaper establishments had either rented out the entire premises after retaining a small portion for their own use or had converted the premises into a commercial complex thereby earning huge profits. In some of the cases, it was found that the newspapers with a view to get another allotment at some other place after renting out the entire building, were not even reporting on attacks on their own scribes for the simple reason that they wanted to remain in the good books of the government. Such newspapers were compromising with the fascist forces and the freedom of the press.
2. ALLOTMENT OF SHARES IN COMPANIES
The Committee was of the opinion that if shares were allotted at a special prices or were given under any quota, this would amount to favour. The Press Council of India has already issued guidelines for the financial journalists.
3. BUS TRAVEL/RAIL TRAVEL/TRANSPORT
The Committee was of the opinion that this was favour so for as big and medium newspapers are concerned. The journalists attached to newspapers which are in profit have no justification for availing free or concessional bus/rail/air transport facility. However, in case of small newspapers this constituted a facility as the Committee felt that there was justification for extending such facility. The media persons work at the grass root level, and work for small newspapers are paid the bare minimum recommended under the Wage Board Awards. The financial condition of most of the small newspapers is precarious and without such a facility they would be unable to cover all news which is necessary to be communicated to their readers. Most of the news of the local level which appears in these newspapers were most times picked up by the medium and big newspapers. The reporters of the small newspapers and accredited freelance journalists, who cannot afford it, must have the facility to travel as much as possible.
4. FOREIGN TRAVEL
The companies, corporations and airlines extend the facility of air travel to journalists not only within the country but also abroad. The journalists avail of this happily. This is an inducement to write favourably about their products/airlines. A propaganda is undertaken through such devices to commercially promote the products/ airlines. This certainly interferes with independent reporting.
Before 1986, the President, Vice-President, Prime Minister and External Affairs Minister were accompanied by journalists during their foreign trips on the basis of pick and choose policy. But in 1987, Press Council of India framed guidelines on selection of journalists on PM's entourage and this was being generally followed. The Committee, however, noted that often the proprietors of the newspapers were accompanying the President/Prime Minister on foreign tours in place of journalists and editors.
The Committee recommended that the newspapers should take care to nominate eligible persons for the purpose.
5. FREE AIR TICKETS
The Committee was of the opinion that this practice constituted an undue favour as it enticed journalists to write favourable reports to commercially promote the airline.
6. CASH DISBURSEMENT FROM CM'S DISCRETIONARY FUND
The Committee noted that there are guidelines as to how the discretionary fund at the disposal of Chief Minister or any other functionary has to be spent. The guidelines should be followed strictly. Indiscriminate disbursement of money from the discretionary fund of the Chief Ministers encourages unfaithfulness to the mission of journalism and promotes corrupt practices.
7. FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
The Committee was of the opinion that if financial assistance is given for medical treatment purposes, it still constitutes a favour, unless, medical aid is being given under the clear cut policy uniformly applicable to all those destitutes or sick persons who cannot afford the medical treatment in case the journalist incidentally happens to be one of those personal there is nothing wrong in it. In Delhi, all the journalists accredited to PIB are entitled to CGHS facility. The Committee feels that extending the CGHS facility to journalists is illogical since CGHS facility is available to the government servants only. The provision of medical facilities to its employees is the responsibility of the newspaper establishments.
8-9. FUNDS FOR MEDIA CENTRE AND GRANTS TO JOURNALISTS ASSOCIATIONS The Committee was of the opinion that this was a favour, unless it was given for promoting the journalistic skills.
10. GIFT CHEQUE BY ADVT. AGENCIES FOR PUBLICATION OF PRESS NOTE OF THEIR CLIENTS
The Committee was of the opinion that this was a favour and deserved outright condemnation.
11. OTHER GIFTS
The Committee was of the opinion that gifts in any form, irrespective of their value, are to be condemned.
12. FREE PARKING
The Committee was of the opinion that this was a favour if a journalist uses this facility for purposes other than his professional work.
13. GUEST HOSPITALITY
The Committee was of the opinion that working journalists as a rule should not be treated as State Guests. In case an individual is treated as State Guest he ipso facto becomes entitled to many facilities without any payment thereof. However, when press teams are invited in discharge of their professional duties, making due arrangements for them should be an exception. The committee further noted that the stay in government guest houses by accredited journalists, is permissible if it is for discharging professional duties.
14. IMPORT OF DUTY-FREE CAMERAS AND COMPUTERS
The Committee was of the opinion it is the duty of the newspaper establishment to, provide cameras/computers to its personnel. An individual employee journalist is not required to buy camera/computer for his work. In the recent past, the Central Government had allowed import of duty free cameras and computers to the journalists. the Committee felt that this concession amounted to a However, the Committee was of the opinion that this facility. should be permissible forth accredited freelance journalists, provided it is not misused.
15. INSURANCE PREMIUM
The Committee was of the opinion that it is not for the government to pay for the premium towards the insurance of journalists. It is the duty of the newspaper establishments or the individual concerned to make such payment towards annual dues once the scheme has been introduced.
16. JOB TO RELATIVES
Giving jobs to journalist's relative not on merits, is an outright attempt at inducement.
The Committee was of the opinion that the grant of loans within the ambit of policy already laid down for all citizens is permissible. But when the loan is give only to the journalists or at reduced rate of interest or when the interest due or the principal amount is waived/written off/ condoned, such a practice would amount to undue favour.
18. NOMINATION ON COMMITTEES
The Committee was of the opinion that in some states, the journalists are nominated on some organisations and institutions like Public Service Commission and are also given the status of State Minister or Cabinet Minister, which was a wrong practice. Except for the nomination by the professional organisations on Committees which have a quota to represent the various professionals, this practice constitutes favour.
19. PCO/FAX/PHONE BOOTH OR CENTRE
The Committee was of the opinion that this is obviously a favour, if gifted. The fax and the phone facility given to all journalists is, however, to be distinguished from the allotment of such booths.
20. PENSIONARY BENEFITS
The Committee Was of the opinion that since the Fourth Estate was not a part of the government, this benefit constituted a favour if the pensionary benefits were extended by the government. The role of the authorities should be limited to ensuring that the newspaper establishments implement the awards of the Wage Boards.
21. PRESS CLUBS - DONATION OF FUNDS
The Committee noted that this practice is prevalent all over the Country and fund are being donated lavishly by Chief Ministers/Ministers/Leaders not only to genuine press clubs but also to the press clubs of dubious nature. It, therefore, constituted an attempt to induce the journalists to give favourable reports about the donors.
The Committee felt that the practice of giving spurious awards has to be curbed. There were instances, not worth mentioning, of sale of awards and prizes by racketeers making money out of it. Not only the racketeers but awardees also were often contributing towards the value of the prizes.
Allotment of shops in their capacity as journalists is a clear cut favour.
The Committee was of the opinion that the following constituted facilities, subject to the remarks given:
The pattern of the formation of the Central Press Accreditation Committee should be followed in all states and union territories. The CPAC at present has a good composition of representatives of journalists, owners, editors and non editors' organisations headed by Principal Information Officer of the Press Information Bureau, Government of India. Another officer, Director of External Publicity is also called to attend the meeting whenever the issue of foreign accreditation is considered. However. it be made mandatory that the accreditation committee should be constituted within a month of the expiry of the term of the earlier committee and committee should hold its meetings quarterly. A provisional accreditation, if given, must come up before the accreditation committee in its first meeting thereafter.
2. GOVERNMENT AND PUBLIC AUTHORITY ADVERTISEMENTS
It is a mutually beneficial transaction when conducted in keeping with the parameters defined in an already laid down policy. However, when given to individual newspapers on ad hoc basis or for extraneous considerations or when they are not routed through centralised agency, they constitute favour.
In addition, governments and public authorities, including the Railways, must publish in their Annual Reports etc., the information regarding advertisements and facilities given by them to journalists and their organisations etc., to ensure greater transparency in their working.
3. ELECTION FACILITIES
The Committee was of the opinion that this was a must, so that journalists are able to cover the events relating to the most important electoral process. Access to all the places of information must be given to them, subject to reasonable restrictions imposed by the Election Commission of India.
4. MEETING EXPENSES FOR JOURNALISTIC CONVENTIONS, SEMINARS etc.
The Committee was of the opinion that this was permissible so long as under its garb, cash grants are not given by the governments and public authorities and others.
5. PRESS ROOMS
They are a facility required to be provided for due discharge of the professional duties by the journalists.
6. INVITING PRESS PARTIES
The Committee was of the opinion that as stated earlier, this was a facility extended by the authorities to provide the necessary information on matters of public interest to the public.
7. PUBLICATION MATERIAL DURING PRESS CONFERENCE
The Committee was of the opinion that this was a facility.
The Committee was of the opinion that this was a facility and should be encouraged as this will improve the knowledge and efficiency of all those engaged in the profession of journalism.
The Press Council of India further stated:
The State governments/UTs which have not provided complete information on further queries of the Council are Andhra Pradesh, Chandigarh Administration, Gujarat, Haryana, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh. ...
The Council's Committee on undue favours to journalists (hereinafter referred to as Committee) also sought public co-operation by issuing press releases, from time to time in all the States and Union Territories, inviting organisations, institutions and members of the public to provide any such information to the Committee as may be in their possession or knowledge, which was relevant to the issue".
