Gujarat’s Chief Minister Narendra Modi gave two speeches in Delhi on Monday. Both were packed with content and the reaction of the usual suspects was on predictable lines. In the morning, he spoke at a FICCI event and addressed women entrepreneurs. In the evening, he spoke at a Network 18 event, Think India.

Since the reactions of the ‘national media’were along predictable lines, I thought there was no point deriding their illogical arguments. But they upped the ante this time.

The Deputy Editor of CNN-IBN, whose parent company Network 18 organised the Think India event, tweeted this:

Why didn’t Modi stay and take any questions? Was he afraid of another India Today conclave situation? Not fair, Modiji! #thinkindia

 

Sagarika Ghose caught lying on Twitter about Narendra Modi

This is shocking beyond belief. She is resorting to blatant lies in this day and age. And she holds the position of Deputy Editor on the channel!

Modi spoke at the event for half-an-hour. He took multiple questions for 35 minutes. He took questions on a range of topics – Centre-State relations; FDI; foreign trade; privatisation of PSUs; labour reforms; land acquisition; defence equipment manufacturing; his message to the youth – and answered each of them in detail. He took several questions from Raghav Bahl,host and Managing Director of Network18. He took some questions from the audience too.

All this was shown and seen on live TV, even on CNN-IBN. And yet the deputy editor of CNN-IBN blatantly decided to lie on social media by asking:

“Why didn’t Modi stay and take any questions?” Those who did not watch the event on TV would assume she is telling the truth – which is far from the truth!

And what does she mean by “Was he afraid of another India Today conclave situation?”

Editor-in-Chief on CNN-IBN Rajdeep Sardesai had this to say (among other things):

#thinkIndiaModi did speak well on the subject given: ‘Less govt, more governance’. But shld have been ready to take more qs.

These folks are never happy I guess! There has to be a ‘but’ just for the sake of it. Anyway, while that is a matter of opinion on whether he “should have taken more questions” despite having a flight to catch, the open and blatant misinformation by the deputy editor is shameful to say the least. The worst part is that none of the CNN-IBN journalists even felt it right to correct her. I guess the hatred runs very deep.

I asked Rajdeep Sardesai for a clarification on this and he replied.

@ssudhirkumar would have been more accurate to say: should have taken more questions.

Sagarika Ghose is yet to make any attempt to correct her tweet.

On a side note, while Modi was busy detailing many ideas, news anchors were busy deriding what they called the “war of hashtags” on Twitter. It speaks volumes about their priorities.

    For IBN, the only real questions are Gujarat riot related. Everything else is irrelevant. So unless he takes those, they will not be satisfied. Ofcourse, no tweets from Sagarika on how many questions Rahul answered at all. Someday, the amount of money earned from political parties by these channels will come out. I am eagerly waiting for the day.

    Looks like even the journalists are polarizing viewers , Shame on you Sagarika Ghose

  • Malini

    There is no accountability in the media. They can tell anything and get away with it. They don’t apologise when they say something that is not factual, much like the politicians. Unless they are made accountable, they wont change.

  • Ravi

    I guess they were concerned about the TRP which would have gone up with more questions !!!.

  • K

    Should be no surprise if coming from Sagarika Ghose. http://www.mediacrooks.com/ has been analyzing Media Crooks (more than one). There are detailed articles there with facts and reasoned opinions.

  • http://Hello jumbo

    Now I wonder, at the end who is feku…?

  • Rajeev

    I have been observing her for the past few years on her programs. She seems like so much biased against Modi.

    Thanks,
    Rajeev

  • Abhishek Mittal

    Nobody takes Sagarika Ghose seriously.Her deep hatred for Hindus is documented & also her dumbness for that matter. If in future,corruption in media is exposed,her channel CNNIBN will have a lot to answer.

  • Rajalakshmi

    Why give any importance at all to utterances by such consummate IDIOTS like sagarika ghoses , barkha dutts & rajdeep sardesais in the first place ?

    We need to burnish our intellect at least now. Often Indians get swayed by empty vain speeches , smattering of English words thus never getting the CONTENT more precisely the LACK of content. How did DMK cast its spell on people of Tamil Nadu ? By sheer florid bluster. DMK’s Karunanidhi might be able to recite Thirukkural. BUT even ONE Thirukkural has not been internalised by him & his supporters.

    In many fiery debates held in Tamil Nadu time passes well for all. At the end of it one wonders “what did I gain…nothing at all save some silly jokes , some veiled political satire …fluent Tamil replete with quotations of atheists , agnostics & rationalists”. A few SANE eventually gave up such debates to dedicate themselves entirely to Spirituality.

    For years we had no other choice other than prannoy roys , yechurys , jayanthi natarajans turning us all into somnolent IDIOTS.

    Thanks to INTERNET we realized what cheap tawdry trinkets they all are.
    Americans , people of ISRAEL , Australia , Europe , China etc are far far ahead full of vibrant clear thinking.Pakistan also one step ahead as Indian congress establishment being narcissistic kept us all in the dark.

    Right from the beginning I have noticed Narendra Modi NEVER put up with inane inquisition from rajdeep sardesais & karan thapars. I wish we SPURN sagarika ghoses even when they make conciliatory noises. This is where we get derailed. We should SUSTAIN our legitimate ANGER. Not forgive & accommodate barkha dutts & sagarika ghoses.

  • Parvenu Jamasji

    Moronic Media is losing it’s credibility, IF any left

  • Raj Dharm

    I fully agree and enjoy exposures of crooks like Sagrika Ghosh, Burkha Dutt, Raj Deep Sardesai, Karan Thapar and hundreds of other paid moron so called, journalists. They are taking full advantage press protection in a democracy by twisting, manipulating, selling themselves. Indeed before internet we had no choice except these paid morons monopolizing That is not an accidentmedia space in a license raaj. The license raaj or these idiots have never changed as access to internet is yet heavily restricted compared to other countries. And it is not an accident.

    Nothing new ! This woman is a liar.

  • Sanjay Joseph

    She is mentally ill. Spare her. :D

  • Responsible Indian

    It stinks to see all the major TV News channels licking the feet of the Congress. Modi has proved what he is capable of in Gujarat and if given a chance he can attempt to put India on the right track. Development, Governance and Corruption are the key issues – Not Psuedo-secularism that Congress is trying to promote and divide the society. What moral grounds does the Congress have to talk about Secularism when it openly massacred sikhs in Delhi in 1984? Why are these news channels not questioning Congress on it? Why single out only Modi?

    I wish Sagarika, Barkha, Rajdeep, Rahul Kanwal and Arnab are put behind bars for misleading the public.

  • Gopal

    It is worth tracing calls or messages received by Sagarika from powerful sources to twist and present Modi’s speach content to reduce 100% impact which impressed every sincere Indian including opposition except a few dedicated “Shakunies” of Mahabharat notoriety!

  • Parvez Jamasji

    ALL NEWS CHANNELLS ARE GUILTY OF :
    1. CREATING & CHANNELING OPINION SUITABLE TO THEIR OWN “AGENDA” BY
    A)MANIPULATING THE TIME.
    MANUPILATING THE CACOPHONY – BUTTING IN & CONINUOUS BABLE, SO THAT THE FEW GEMS OF THE DEBATE ARE DROWNED IN THE “UPROAR”

    B)REPEATING Q TO EXTENT TIME TO THOSE WHO FULFILL THE CHANNEL’SAGENDA

    ALL IN ALL, THE NEW HAS LOST IT’S CREDIBILITY. . . . .

  • SANJEEVGOEL

    RIOTS RIOTS RIOTS ………they just go on with it forgetting the SIKH 84 RIOTS,COUNTLESS OTHERS SINCE OUR INDEPENDENCE,THEY HAVE NO TIME TO REPORT ON
    HINDUS KILLED.ITS JUST MODI MODI MODI.
    EVEN NOW ALL ILLS AFFECTING PEOPLE ,LIKE INFLATION,HIGH COSTS OF DAY TO DAY
    NEEDS ITEMS,COST OF FOOD,2 G,COMMON WEALTH,COAL & COUNTLESS OTHER LOOTS ARE ALL FORGOTTEN NOW.
    HE IS A CHOSEN LEADER OF GUJ PEOPLE,WHO ARE WE TO OVERLOOK THAT.
    WHEN ALL OTHER COMMUNAL RIOTS OF OTHER PARTIES CAN BE FORGOTTEN SO CAN THIS ONE BE.
    SPEAKING ABOUT MUSLIMS DOESNT MAKE ANY ONE SECULAR IN OTHER HINDUS EYES.REMMEBER.

  • dnesh

    it is high time she leaves ibn and join active politics like dig singh……

  • Pratap

    I was watching a new show by Sagarika Madam about the 1984 Sikh Genocide sponsored by Congress Party. She asks Mr Phoolka, that the Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi have apologized for the 1984 Sikh Genocide. Isnt that enough ? Disgusting irresponsible question . Again Sagarika Ghose asks 2002 is a state orchestrated riots whereas 1984 was a reaction to the decade long war with Sikh Terrorists. Again everybody even a child knows that the 1984 was a Genocide sponsored by Rajiv Gandhi led Congress party.

    We can safely ignore Sagarika and her random rants

  • Shashikant Sharma

    Now as the election will reach near, these paid nes makers, news channels and journilst will perform at their peak.
    In absence of any regulations, they are becoming the most dangerous and poisionus substance in today atmosphere in India.
    Sharm to inko hai nahi kynoki besharmee se to ye paida hote hain.

    I have to fall too low if i want to match words to describe their worth.

    TIme is coming they should be ready to repay their nuisance they have created in society. THey will find no place once wind change.

  • Murali

    this sagarika ghose and the likes of it are not women or anythng. They are sikhandis of india. Best way to destroy them is to dont repsond to their IDIOT TALKS and not to watch their channels and try to educate others about this.

  • kpkumar

    Haha. this Sagarika “Goose” is a paid sickular woman. she always eats mud to get her perks. better ignore her.

  • rbs

    It is simple. All the 30 years India was seeing a coalition weak government. Hence the media can dictate its norms. Now it is otherwise. So they are not able to tolerate. Anyway, IBNLive has started changing is tone after #NAMO took over. Further more, RIL is going to take over tv18 and hence there will be a complete change. Just give the media the time to change their mindset.

  • MS-India

    First priority for RIL should be to sack Rajdeep Sardesai and Sagarika Ghose for paid media and flaring hatred among the citizens of India. A blot in the name of media. They will not even get space in hell.

  • Ramesh

    Sagarika Ghose- Foot in the mouth. She just cannot speak sense at all

  • Raina

    Freedom of speech or rumor mongery ? What “The channels” are involved in? Shamless people did not relent after 6 crores slap , what after 125 Crore slap ?

  • sailor

    Sagarika and Rajdeep made no bones about their dislike for Modi and the BJP. In the process they threw away what ever values of journalism that they were supposed to practice. Add Burkha Dutt, Sanghavi, Ketkar etc.etc. and we have a veritable bunch of so called journos who acted as paid agents of Congress. Now all these people are forced to eat the humble pie.
