Media Wars

A very good looking birdie has been telling me horror tales from Bridal Asia and other fashion events. Stories about reporters from across the media divide fighting over who goes first. Stories about reporters almost clawing each others eyes out. About shouting matches where everybody from parents to organisation owners have been roundly abused. Bruised and battered, most of these reporters also manage to put stories out ... not bad eh?

The best one has to be between a reporter from the Birla paper and reporter from the fastest Hindi channel around during a movie thingy on Friday - the two went at each other, each other's owners and everyone within a ten feet radius hammer and tongs. Their bone of contention, who got to shoot a couple of starlets first .. everybody was screaming me first .. nobody said me last .. or even me second ...

Oh, and it's not only women fighting ...

The best fight however was a fight between two burly old fat telecom correspondents from the two #1 business channels at the Bharti Results presser. The best was when they ended up manhandling Sunil Mittal. Hahaha. But why is TV and Print fighting, most bewildering!

Perhaps the stakes are higher for fashion reporters, aka better freebies?
