Barkha Dutt Go Back

Padma Shri Barkha Dutt met some common men at the India Gate. But the utterly shocked hi-fi TV journalist had to face a strong protest then and there. Reason: They were agitating-celebrating during activist Anna Hazare-led protests against corruption, and the ordinary people didn’t want anybody like Barkha to kill their high.

NDTV star journalist Barkha has been accused of political leanings in the 2G scam, a charge she vehemently denies. Here is the first tweet dated 9th April, 2011 in which Barkha shared that she was going to report on Anna Hazare from India Gate.

Her another tweet after being hooted by the people, as seen in the video below, termed the people as ‘lumpens’.

And here’s the video showing people’s outburst against the TV journalist.

And what about the show she did for NDTV? Watch it here wherein she asks the people if the Lokpal Bill is the best way to weed out corruption?

Well, I had earlier reported as to how Barkha had got Vanity Fair to update its website, presumably because one of its stories portrayed her in poor light vis-à-vis her reporting on Mumbai terror attack. But how do you justify such an attack on a journalist? And how do you justify such methods against corruption? And what do you think… how corrupt are We, The People of India?

  1. Is she awarded Padma Shree? If it is true, then it indicates how corrupt is the system at the top! Padma Shree will lose its very value. It could have been better awarded to a rickshaw puller who sincerely works for himself and his family. Persons like this corrupt pseudo-secular paparazzi are another curse to the Indian poor classes. God help India

  2. Hi Neeraj,

    Thank you for calling a spade a spade. There is a very severe shortage of honest media persons.

    I am not sure if you would have read my post “From heights of Kargil to despairing depths of oblivion.” on this tainted individual from NDTV.

    Percieved corrupt people from the media can & will not be tolerated by us anymore. What happened at India Gate is just a small step more is to follow.

    We have many who need to be pushed out from Media.

    A robust neutral media is a must for healthy democracy.

    Sincerely
    Anil Kohli
