Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

Thursday, November 10, 2005

It happens only in (Times of) India

ToI reporter poses as wannabe blogger and attends the Delhi Bloggers Meet. He then comes up with a report in Delhi Times trashing the Blogosphere.

TTG, the organizer of the meet explains it here. Did the ToI scribe think that Bloggers are like terrorists and hence he needs to hide his identity so as to get maximum mileage out of the event?

Looks like we need to have high entry barriers to these blog meets. Otherwise there will be more undercover journalists than bloggers and it will end up as a Journalist meet with bloggers doing the reporting.


  • Tht's a fine piece of "Investigative" journalism from TOI. When was the last time a TOI bring a real "breaking news" that involved some risk, some news that really had an impact? I can't recollect any.

  • was following the story after you blogged it...its rapidly becoming a squabble between bloggers now. ridiculous!
    abt TOI, i think it should give blogdom a break from its stories...where were they during the IIPM thingy? the less said about them, the better.
