Shourie’s Thappads to Thapar

Devil’s Advoate: It is hilarious how Arun Shourie keeps showing Karan Thapar his place. “Keep your hands down!” he thunders at Thapar while the latter can only manage a sheepish grin.

    What an ill-mannered goon. If I were in Shourie’s place, I don’t know if I’d agree to be interviewed with this ill-behaved, interrupting, manipulative sly character. The EL media in India is probably the worst that exists.

    * Adding to my previous comment which I typed while watching the interview… the last part where Thappar asks whether Mr Shourie suspects the Gandhi family to have money stashed in tax havens, he sounds almost like he’s challenging him, to pounce like a hawk to spice up the next day’s headlines with anti-BJP rhetoric … I don’t watch these channels much, so I’m seriously apalled by this kind of interviewing. It is shameful the number of times that he interrupted Mr Shourie, a man who is far more knowledgeable and who he’s interviewing. He got slapped in return when his repeated attempts at blocking, interrupting and cutting Shourie off back-fired and he had to be told about 5 times to put his hand down.

    Well done Mr Shourie! Thats the way to treat the filthy media.

  4. I totally loved it when Shourie tells Thapar to put his hands down.

    It was also nice to see him catch and mock Thapar’s “Law of Assumption”.

    The reputation of these media jokers has to be destroyed so they can never open their mouths on Tv again.

    Why is not there a 24/7 news channel that will bat for the BJP and the majority Hindus ?! If and when there is one, it will be like Fox news in my opinion and the TRPs’ of that channel will rise sky high and squash these pseudo-medias under its feet. It’s about time we had one.

    Yes! We need an Indian Fox News. Now’s the time…

  8. and speaking of ARUN SHOURIE …

    what happened to any write up about arun shourie’s (g)ripping 4 part series fully exposing the bigotry at the helm in the bjp ?

    would it be far from the truth to say that bjp backing bloggers like sandeep ,bhavananda , shantanu and the like have conspicuously stayed away from arun shourie , esp after the elections? is there a story behind this looking the otherway?
