Sagarika Ghosh's Interview with Sunanda Pushkar

I managed to come home early and got the chance to watch Face The Nation on CNN IBN anchored by Sagarika Ghose.

It was Shashi Tharoor’s wife Sunanda replying to Modi’s remarks which he made while campaigning in Himanchal Pradesh.

You know what, the first question Sagarika asked made me laugh and after the series of question that followed.

  1. How did you feel after Modi made that comment on you?
  2. Did you feel hurt?
  3. Do you feel quite sympathetic about your husband that he stood by you?
1. Now sometimes I wonder don’t they dig up in the dictionary to use something different rather than asking same question over and over again, whether its politicians, sports persons or actors.

2. Do they really need to waste their precious time in interviewing someone which has no relevance rather than bringing up something which change things for good. Yup she is entitled to react but then there is no point making all the hue and cry.

Media is also busy in the race, who digs the story first, who interviews whom first so that it keeps flashing on the bottom of the TV screen.  They seem to never act like a fourth pillar of democracy. What ever happens the whole day, it’s the politics that has to make the headline. Whether it’s the hurricane, gang rape or illegal property deal but at the end of the day it matters what Modi said in his campaign.

I hope the better sense prevails in media and they don’t follow the light camera action every where.

Good Night!
