Barkha Dutt @Bdutt has been indiscreet and doing foolish things : Dr @swamy39

In expose media on November 11, 2011 at 10:59 am

Do you suspect the roles of some journalists and editors including Hindustan Times columnist Vir Sanghvi and NDTV’s Barkha Dutt in this scam?

Most people are relying on corporate lobbyist Nira Radia tapes. But I know from personal experience that journalists do a lot of hack jobs. If wanted, they character assassinate you at the behest of the ruling party. In my case, the media cannot say anything except that I’m a troublemaker, which doesn’t sell very well. They don’t publish anything I say unless it becomes impossible like now, because the telecom scam has become a big issue. They’ve been doing it systematically. When elections take place, many journalists come and ask for money, saying they’ll give favourable coverage in return.

In the case of Vir Sanghvi, I know he used to visit Phuket [in Thailand] almost every weekend and the Tamil Tigers used to finance his trips. Because of his lifestyle, I knew he was amenable and a real fixer. He’s been writing articles depending on who’s in power. As for Barkha Dutt, she’s been indiscreet and doing foolish things.
