These turds in Indian English media will never reform themselves, will they? Even after Barkhagate, they are up to their same old tricks of manipulating public opinion by fudging facts — this shows they treat their viewers and readers as contemptible guinea pigs.
IBN – Using Twitter ID’s which dont exists
CNN-IBN MEDIA MANIPULATION: CAUGHT RED HANDED WITH INCRIMENATING EVIDENCE
I was watching the programme ‘Should Lobbying be Legalised’ a debate chaired and moderated by Rajdeep Sardesai in CNN-IBN’s website. The Programme was aired on 16/12/2010 and was available in the CNN-IBN website. Customarily in such programmes they run Twitter comments to reflect from social media supposedly to show what the public believe and say. I was appalled to find that these comments were manipulated, i.e. ghost created and run by IBN’s own team, all those dubious comments seem to reflect the sentiments and to show and thrust the fact that people are for ‘LOBBYING’ and they support ‘LEGALISING LOBBYING’. Please see and read the comments yourself from screenshots of the programme. On suspicion, I crossed checked the twitter handles that were shown in the programme and none were authentic or existing.

Turd-Desai of IBN apologises after he was caught with his pants down.
An apology for an error
On its ‘India at 9’ programme last night (December 16, 2010) CNN-IBN had posted viewer feedback in course of its debate on whether lobbying should be legalised. This viewer feedback was wrongly attributed to Twitter accounts. We deeply regret the error and apologise for the same.We will take all steps to ensure that this is not repeated.
So what kind of error was it by which CNN-IBN team created fake twitter IDs?
Only one newspaper — the Hindu — has carried this news. The rest have suppressed it. Chor Chor, Mausere Bhai!
