While The Economic Times has turned up the volume about ET Now, including carrying stories by their reporters more frequently, today mornings piece about the edit team and anchors was surprising. Not because of the way people got billing but because Rahul Joshi's name was nowhere in the piece. C'mon, everybody and their uncle knows that Rahul is the brains behind the channel (and recently that has come at the expense of the paper) - I can understand if he wants to be the anti-Arnab, but please. People do like names once in a while y'know.
I do have a lengthy prose piece planned out, but currently I'm stuck between Twitter and a hard place, so that will have to wait for a while. I'll keep posting on lunatic layoffs and other crazy stories, but for now I have to find a decent Espresso and type out one hell of a lot of stuff on MS Word. By the way, MS Word is 25 years old this year, after browsers it is my most used piece of software and given that I keep on swapping browsers, Word is possibly my highest used piece of software ever. I've argued that Google has become the journalists best friend, but for better of for worse (I like Office 2007 for some reason) Microsoft Word has pretty much become the spouse.
PS: This Shiney Ahuja case is very surprising. Didn't know he would take after Bollywood baddies of note!
