The Hindu Runs Out Of News

Shilpa Shetty visits a dentist and that makes it to the news. I think The Hindu is building strong barriers of entry for ToI in the Chennai market.

  • Some days back they were running a series on 'Date with Namitha' :))

  • Exactly. The TOI factor must be weighing heavily on their minds and they are going to end up screwing themselves due to imagined market demands, before the other newspapers do them in. Lack of imagination seems to be a huge problem at the Hindu.

  • Just adding some flavour to this.. Dr.Ganapathy's wife is none other than Actor Jayaram's sister. This alliace seemed to be the result of closeness to the film industry...

  • I really agree with you. The Hindu maintains its own content in Bangalore but in Chennai (been to Chennai recently) where it is going to a level where TOI would never imagine. TOI makes shilpa shetty piece creatively but The Hindu gives as NEWS. Sad!

  • The Hindu is well on its way to become a "Red" or Leftist Version of ToI, just a matter of time, because they know that the older generation readers are already a fading minority..... . A blend of Brinda Karat and Bipasha Basu would what Hindu would eventually want to represent to its readers.

  • Can't you guess.. this one is a news-vertisement for "JGHR Total Dental Care Clinic". Hindu has done this several times. Usually they will appear on Page 2. They have done this on a grander scale for DishTV (Complete with the contact number for signing up).

  • Yes, Ram C ur right. Jayram's sister is married to pathy and Hari is married to a Big Businessman's daughter from Bombay. N.Ram and co are out of ideas and last I heard from my aunt was that somebody in Janakiraman's family is related to the extended "The Hindu" family.
