Erm...

The Naval Chief had a presser today before the start of Navy Week. That in itself wasn't surprising nor was the public admonishment of two TV channel reporters for breaking an embargo (CNN-IBN and Headlines Today) but the way heNavy Chief recounted events surrounding a senior female journalist in Kargil.
No really! The man recounted the incident blow-by-blow, and if anyone of you attended please send in details. And some channels carried this live. This is the same reporter who is facing hell for her pro-Jihadi reportage in Mumbai. I'm sure the print guys will be a bit circumspect with the news, but then again, I didn't say anything, Admiral Mehta did.
In other news, Rajeev Chandrashekhar has been offered the Mukerjea stake in News X, and this is only supposed news. What is also 'supposed' is that he refused to buy at the price quoted, which apparently was Rs 200 crore for half the channel. Athere might be some details regarding UndieTV disposing some of its entertainment channels very soon, despite a convoluted ownership structure. Watch this space.

Yes. I perfectly agree with what you wrote. In fact there is probably more to it.

By the way Barkha Ji's overtures and Naval chiefs press conference is not covered by NDTV? I like your blog. Screw the anti-national English Indian media artificial demons like the NDTV biggies..They are actually piggies...

The Hindu carried the story where the Naval chief criticised Barkha's actions in Kargil.

The DNA also carried the story but they were pro media and anti navy chief. Also there was a rejoinder from Barkha which is a of course a bag of lies.
