Cobra post Sting Reinforce Doubts About Media Fairness

It was, of course, expected that the major sections of the media will ignore the findings of a Cobrapost sting operation because it shows them in poor light as paddlers in prejudice and pelf. It has hardly been a secret that the media’s advocacy of honesty and fair play is, with few exceptions, a sham, rather a shame.

Arvind Kejriwal may be wrong in imagining that his dharna with three other ministerial colleagues in the office of the Lieutenant Governor wins him sympathy and support from the people of Delhi. In a Tweet he has told the people of Delhi that he is taking the step to serve them!

The Supreme Court order asking former chief ministers in UP to vacate the official bungalows allotted to them for life has been widely hailed. But rejoice only if you know nothing about the guiles and cunnings of our VIPs. In fact, the crafty politicians who may be expected to suffer on account of the May 7 court order had already anticipated the judicial eviction order.

Letter From America: Back in Bangladesh – the face of endemic corruption

I arrived in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka last week via the Emirates Airlines. The flight from Newark to Dubai was delayed by an hour and the in-flight service crew were poorly prepared to do their task satisfactorily. Upon arrival in Dhaka airport, I waited for another hour and a half before I could collect all my baggage. One of the bags missed a lock; the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) agents had removed the lock in Newark airport to check the bag. Nothing fortunately was missing from the bag.
