ET’s Non-stop Bakwaas

The screenshot says it all. Should I say more?




Luckily, the real article had a different headline. Why can’t they put the same headline in the main page also? I don’t think we need to bear with ET forever. Hindustan Times has announced its plans to start a financial daily in the year 2007. I’m sure this will cause jitters in the ET camp. (via Content Sutra)


Harish suggests a new name for ToI…..it’s called ToILET. The name makes lot of sense after what ToI reported about the Air France mishap in Toronto airport (via DesiPundit).

  • Kaps, thanks for copying the image! It seems that I cannot access the rootshell page where I put that original image. Can I borrow yours?

    Thanks, Vishnu

  • @Monu,
    Even dumbos should stay away from such crap

    @Ganesh,
    In the alternate medium (blogs) there is no single place where people can go and get all info. Further the audience may not whether the info in the blog is credible or no. hence it might be difficult to displace MSM. further MSM has lot of money. I expect MSM to become more responsible after the explosion of blogs.

    @CM,
    Point noted.....this will be the last post (atleast for the time being) on this issue

    @Vishnu,
    pls go ahead.

    @Shashikant,
    Thanks 4 dropping by.
    I'll take a look soon.

  • "IT stocks do a pamela, sexy returns go bust"

    Such headlines should be encouraged I say. In fact, I scanned through ten other punny headlines from other newspapers to see if any matched the above headline. No pun in ten did.

  • "200 feared killed" ... baapre! thats as worse as worse it can get. That careless ... really bad!

  • I used to be a ET regular 6-7 yrs back..It was far better then. As I said earlier , they know their audience and are catering to them.

  • AirFrance news is a good joke!! It seems their objective is exactly like that of SUN TV.. make it sensational and sexy

    By Blogger Ram.C, at 4:18 PM  

  • @Seven Times Six,
    Thanks for dropping by. If there are more people like you ToI and ET will continue with such reporting / headlines.

    @Gayathri,
    That's a big blunder. I heard that they changed it later on.

    @Cogito,
    Your logic seems to be true.

    @Ram C,
    Both SUN TV and ToI try to sensationalize the news. People who have seen SUN TV's coverage during the Tsunami crisis can relate to it.
