What is revealing is in fact that even a day after Sagarika Ghose ( Associate Editor of CNN-IBN channel ) tweeted her apology that she had misunderstood RSS Sarsanghachalak, Mohan Bhagwat’s comments, her TV channel continued to spread the mis-information. Rajdeep Sardesai (her husband and Editor – In- Chief IBN network ) ran a show with an interview with Abu Azmi’s son,Farhan Azmi on Jan 8th at 9 pm where the scrolls still showed Mohanji Bhagwat as having made the same comments.
Therefore it seems that while they apologize on twitter probably to save their face on the internet, they run the TV program “India @ 9 ” and carry on the same lies. How low can they fall?
The TV Clips are below which are of 8th Jan 2013 were the same mis-information was continued is below . Refer http://ibnlive.in.com/shows/India+At+9/314626.html ( time 56 mins onwards )
In fact channels like the Even the P7 News 24*7 have gone to the extent of deliberately telecasting only the portions out of context ( where Mohanji had quoted Western theory of contract ) as if they were his comments. They have then hosted debates on the doctored videos. What low standards of journalism !
At least ANI had the decency to take some action but the others are incorrigible in their lies it seems.
Are TRP ratings the only reason why the TV channels exist ? At a time when the nation is dealing with one voice about how to protect the dignity of women, these cheap antics by some sections in the English media who are at the helm of affairs is disgusting.
On the RSS :The RSS ( Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is one of the few organisations in the country which is working towards building patriotism and values among the Indian youth. In fact in 2008, the RSS passed a resolution indicating its concern on the attacks on the dignity of women in India and urged its cadre to spread awareness and work for protection of the dignity of women.

Also hear what RSS Sarsanghachalak said on the two occasions and the media has twisted his comments on both the occasions.
