The moves from print to telly continue unabated. The latest, according to a Bihari birdy, is a man known to be part of the core editorial team.
No names till we get independent confirmation as usual, but the gentlemen in question was heavily involved with ToI's op-ed (?) offerings.
Jokes apart, I think ToI's lost a great writer.
He is going to NDTV -- a channel in dire need of editorial direction. Ever since the big man has left to form his own channel, the PYTs at ND are all at sea.
It brings to mind the famous question asked by a newbie pyt send to cover a crime story -- she asked the suspect how he felt after committing murder.
Things like that normally didn't happen at ND because people like the big man, but especially the big man, would often tell reporters what the story was in a language that they understood:
1. go there
2. check if your mike is working
3. ask the following questions
4. come back to THIS office WITH the tape and try not to leave the cameraman behind this time
It is hope the edit man from ToI will plug the editorial hole left behind by the big man.
He is reportedly serving his last few days with Team Toy
There has been a request for me to be far more explicit ... so here goes nothing ... fuck ... $#% ` ... *^$@ ....
k and kars ... please do keep in mind that k doesn't always drive sober ... which means a straight drive starts to feel like an infinite turning radius ...
