Theu Just Don't Get It!!

First Rajdeep Sardesai showed how spectacularly he missed the point. And now it's the turn of Barkha Dutt to rant and self-congratulate cluelessly. But she hits the nail right on the head when she writes -

This is not to say, that we made no mistakes- I am sure we inadvertently made a few- as did every department of government, when faced with a situation that India has never dealt with before.

The government screwed up and so did the media. The media is now rightly going hammer and tongs after the government. But the question is, who will watch the watchmen?

All these news channels need to have ombudsmen if they do not already.
