Barkha Dutt and NDTV: A Terrorist’s DREAM COME TRUE

RelatedPosts

Note: According to latest understanding, intelligence based on media reports were fed to the terrorists by “field officers” so they stayed a step ahead of the Indian forces.

Barkha Dutt and NDTV is a terrorist’s DREAM COME TRUE!! They must really love having Barkha Dutt cover every strike they do.. hoping that she will help them by facilitating more KILLINGS and slayings. She has ABSOLUTELY NO journalistic ethics or common sense. There are others on that channel like Sagarika… who is another joker! But here are two actions and indiscretions that could have (WOULD have!!) put many lives in GRAVE danger during the height of Mumbai carnage and hostage drama.. I am sure ONE of the special preparation by the terrorists have been subscription to NDTV’s live news coverage.. maybe they their masters have been running a live audio cast on the satellite phone for them from Pakistan or something!!

– In one instance she asks a husband about his wife being stuck, or held as a hostage. The poor guy adds in the end about where she was last hiding. Aired! My dear friends with AK-47s, our national news is helping you. Go get those still in. And be sure to thank NDTV for not censoring this bit of information.

– In another instance, a General sort of suggests that there were no hostages in Oberoi Trident. (Clever.) Then, our herione of revelations calls the head of Oberoi, and the idiot confirms a possibility of 100 or more people still in the building. Hello! Guys with guns, you’ve got more goats to slay. But before you do, you’ve got to love NDTV and more precisely Ms. Dutt. She’s your official intelligence from Ground zero

Can you share other ” screw ups” by these over-zealous, forever shouting and utterly IDIOTIC jokers with Journalists ID cards speaking on TV?

    I certainly agree with your standpoint. Its not just Barkha Dutt but our main stream media not is washed with milk and it is a joke if someone thinks that they are only airing which is true. The fact lies only a few would acknowledge that there were Indian soldiers killed while trying to save Barkha Dutt during the Kargil war.

    Theres a whole dump of high level conspiracy going on and the news channel is airing the story which ofcourse suits the course and plans of our existing govt. Nobody looks into the other side of the story cuz its far more dirty and dangerous.

    The whole coverage was amateurish.. a mad rush for TRPs and exclusive coverage. What would have made sense are confirmed reports/sources.. a discussion on how to improve security conditions and perhaps other news stories also. Its not just NDTV but CNN IBN, Times Now.. all of them responsible channels.. losing their minds and getting high on getting most words on T.V per sec. Sic

    Great post, we need to send this feedback to all the major newspapers on how exactly these “news” pushers made a mockery of tragedy and provided “breaks” to come back with better suits and dumb guests(bollywood-alyque padamsee …) or right/left wing nut.

    They added music to event where silence would have worked, pushed camera angles to experimental extreme with absolutely no script or useful information san discussion. They put on live running ars (on for 34 hrs) and slogans like “ladega india” and were ecstatic when commandos came down rappling. Folks on NDTV/CNN-IBN actually blurted out – hey look at that – that happens in movies of hollywood – what a dramatic shot, capture it. Get the angle – find out if we can go little ahead.

    Many times through the night – they focused on the various rooms giving away the position of the folks or kept replaying the shooting van video for desensitizing the whole generation.

    Barkha dutt is complete fool. She has no idea about journalism and I am pretty sure she failed jounalism exams with at least 32 back papers. She does not know the difference between her brains and her boobs and NDTV is all praises for her. NDTV itself seems to have become indian counterpart of PTV and is licking pakistani asses white.

    Who is Barkha Dutt married to? is it a kashmiri terrorist? that would explain why she is ever so sympathetic to the enemy. can someone ban her and her likes? and by the way, it is high time the media were told that to change their style of coverage, which at present only helps the terrorists to succeed.

    There is substance in Desh’s blog. There is a clear need to keep the media totally out of any situation endangering the people, the society and the nation. Only the bulletins put out by responsible Government agencies should be aired.

    However, today Barkha Dutt on live NDTV appeared dangerously close to a physical breakdown due to the overstrain of continuous coverage of terrorism at Mumbai. She has to retire from the scene,take rest and see a doctor. After all, we do not want to lose her lively coverage of other events.

    If you ever watch/hear programs on CNN or on NPR and then compare them to the ones from Indian media you know HOW amateurish and downright idiotic they are! There is NO research no idea of the reality and yet they go on.

    Watch Karan Thappar’s interviews and then Larry King Live.. and you know exactly why Larry King Live is what it is!! IN Karan Thappar’s program he speaks MORE than the guest!! Whereas the interviewer’s job is EXACTLY the opposite! Larry King asks a one-two line question and the question is so well asked that the guest ends up speaking for 10 mins!

    Watch the news in India now and you looooong for the erstwhile Doordarshan news that was telecast by people like Rini Simon, Neethi Ravindran and Ramu Damodaran!

    In a terror attack or in an emergency.. the military and security agencies should put barricades and BAR the journalists to even come close to that area.

    The trouble is that the journalists act as goondas and hooligans and expect themselves to be ABOVE LAW!! We need some laws NOW to save the nation and the victims FROM THE MEDIA!!

    Some of the journalist need to be slapped while on air.
    Barkha thinks she is the mother India and she runs the country.

    In another instance the Tines now anchor was asking the reporter on the ground why the Army helicopter dropping the NSGs was not shot down yet by the terrorists.

    The media should be taken off air during such excercise.

    you know apart from the way they holler at the top of their voices as if we are all deaf or near deaf, and even if look away painfully when Barkha lovingly shoves the mike under a grieving father’s nose to ask him how he felt when he could not identify the body of his son which was torn apart by the bomb blast in Gujarat, one cannot ignore the sheer stupidity at times. I mean imagine telling simi grewal on We the People yesterday why ‘carpet bombing NWFP in Pak’ was a bad idea, ‘ because it cost President Bush his presidency’!!! I mean is that the reason that we should not go to war, that some neta will lose his Kursi? Not that Bush lost anything, he was re elected after his immoral and indefensible war against afghanistan and iraq(???). What was she talking about?

    And all even the best of them actually do is relay information as fast as they can as if this is a race for which one covers what is in any case going to blaring in a minute or two from every other channel as well without really verifying, cross question or looking deeper for what more there could be than what meets the eye. Imagine the news that the terrorists faces were deformed beyond recognition not being analysed… why? Surely the fact that even the captain of the trawler was beheaded and not recognizable hence and also the same fate of the terrorists would lead to something being amiss..?

    I am no bigger a fan of CNN or CNN-IBN or any other news channel than anyone else out here. I do not praise any of these for any of their reporting for all they are trying to achieve is sensationalism. I mean these reporters (and by standers) were standing so close to the Taj hotel during the seige that in fact one by stander also got shot. I mean you do a good job, but you are no use to us dead, right?

    Also why was so much of Taj, Oberoi and Nariman House was being covered, when there were attacks at other places like the hospital and railway station. Was it just because it took a longer time to control them, because there were foreigners with links to US, UK and Israel, or just because big and “important” people with a lot of money go to Taj/Oberoi? What happened to the hundereds of other people who lost their lives? Just because they were not staying at the Taj/Oberoi??

    CNN covered the whole news for all the 3 days non-stop. CNN – the one who does not cover anything apart from US until they have their own agenda in it. They covered this horrific act, NON STOP, only because there were their own people invloved. Yes there is one point where they did act responsibly as in the case of the CNN reporter who was in contact with the couple from Chicago, and managed not to reveal their position on air. But otherwise their single point agenda was to show that Indian authorities cannot contain the seige and elevate the issue with our neighbour(s).

    Barkha Dutt – in January this year I had managed to see her waiting in line to catch a flight at the Delhi airport. Man on man, what a tantrum she threw when there was no ticketing agent at the airline counter. And I do not know why she was allowed to go through the “Employees Only” door and not the regular security check. Priviledges, I call it a security breach. She may be doing some good reporting by going to Kargil during the war etc etc. But you bet she is totally irresponsible, which also has a lot to blame the TV channel which does not know what to edit and when.

    Very true, Govind…

    I especially hated the part where they added “music” and sirens and… to the reportage, animated bombs going off in the studio background, bomb-like sounds, etc… This is completely immoral and unethical. The fact that these amoral people run the fourth estate is a dangerous thing for our very survival as a “human” race.

    Truly Barkha Dutt was the worst of the lot. Showcasing lousy timing and double standards throughout. Unlike the “prissy-miss-brave-heart” she tries to project.

    Besides the previously describes gaffes by her, here are some more:

    1. Against the backdrop of the smouldering Taj, Barkha speaks(tearfully) of dear friend Sabina Sehgal who is trapped inside…

    2. Then she cuts to an interview with Alex Kuruvilla of Conde Naste who speaks of all the parties he has had and will miss having in the Taj…

    3. Then she cuts to a telephonic interview with Krishna Kumar, Vice-Chairman of Taj Hotels, and asks about the bravery of his staff. As he speaks about the bravery of his people, especially GM Karambir Kang who lost his family, we see Barkha get visibly impatient (perhaps she has urgent breaking news…?). The moment he is done she quickly (and eagerly) cuts to ~ an interview with some Bollywood mini-celebrity on her take of the situation!

    4. And when the security forces finally announce the end of the operation the next day, Barkha-on-the-spot forgets about the fate of people inside (including her dear friend Sabina), and breaks security cordons to try and rush inside to show us “Live Breaking News” footage of broken glass and last meals of people inside the Taj, rambling non-stop like an idiot, and descibing every little thing, as if viewers are either blind, or she’s suddenly turned radio-reporter…

    During all this, she also has the “audacity to complain on air” that she is being asked by security forces “to leave the scene”.

    Well what better can we expect from an ageing eyeball vulture with a bad haircut, who’s clearly reached the menopause of her career.

    I strongly that TV channels should act more responsible in such situation and should make all efforts not to glamorize such incidents/acts. Terrorists or their act should not be projected as heroic. Only official comments/reports should be telecast and actions already taken has to be discussed/show. No future plan of action or any other interview should be telecasted.
    The government too needs to make sure and speak to the the media community that situation such as this is very delicate and needs to be handled with responsibility – keeping the interest of the nations before anything else(TRP).

Terrorists or their act should not be projected as heroic. Only official comments/reports should be telecast and actions already taken has to be discussed/show. No future plan of action or any other interview should be telecasted.
    The government too needs to make sure and speak to the the media community that situation such as this is very delicate and needs to be handled with responsibility – keeping the interest of the nations before anything else(TRP).

    Watching the Mumbai bombing, throughout, one comes to the conclusion,that Miss was least concerned about the safety and security of the people but was instrumental providing all the information to the terrorists when it was made obvious that they are being fed all the news via sattelite navigator. Would not be least surprised, if she receives the BHARAT RATAN by Miss Sonia Ghandhi.

    it is absolutely true that at such times these media guys like barkha dutt, rajdeep sardesai, karan thapar are kept in stron police jails tile TIHAR or the ARTHUR ROAD in isolation without any communication with the outside World. Actually they are the people responsible for the loss of lives of many of the guests and the officers during this attack at Mumbai by giving the details of the location and the tactical strategies of the security forces I wish someone files a case against such media organisations for helping/ ABETTING the terrorists in the massacare that happenend in Mumbai TAJ, OBEROI, CST, CAMA, NARIMAN HOUSE, ETC

    i have been a long time of B.Dutt, but it seems that She is the most stupid self protraying bitch. its very clear that she helped terrorist and played with the emotions of victims where she was consistingly insisting the Wife of a trapped husband about what she was feeling over and over again and finally when she didnt get any answer she derived her own meaning that Oh i understand what u must be feeling. she was even gathering the people to pose for camera.

    this is really disgusting. she cant play with peoples feeling. she didnt even move when policeman literally pushed her out saying “”chalo jao..” she loves HER fame more than anything else. plus i would like to add whats written above,

    I especially hated the part where they added “music” and sirens and… to the reportage, animated bombs going off in the studio background, bomb-like sounds, etc… This is completely immoral and unethical. The fact that these amoral people run the fourth estate is a dangerous thing for our very survival as a “human” race.

    i hate arrogant Burkha Dutt who consider herself too authoritative and give her senseless openions.

    This is not the first time when Barkha DUMB soul has done something so foolish. She has given various examples of irresponsible journalism like Arushi’s murder case, white crash and Navy Admiral Sureesh Mehta. Somebody must tell her that journalism is not about unfolding just anything with that hyperactive attitude. ‘Breathe-think-use mind’ and then speak woman!!….
