The Hypocrisy of Mid Day Tabloid...





Mid Day : The “fearless” journalists who write against "barbaric" censorship...are the most hypocritical news organisation of India...

Came out with a supremely insensitive coverage of this sad story...of a British girl who died of a rarest of rare disease...

With their more than pathetic readerbase commenting frivolously. I (Sumantra Maitra, in the photos) commented on their link pointing out the insensitive nature of their coverage. They justified saying that they are giving people an “off beat” news. I said, please check the coverage of this “offbeat” news in British media, and please don’t lecture me on journalism as I am a journalist myself.

They “censored” my comment, deleted my comments, and blocked me from their community. But morons, as they are, they didn’t delete their own comment, which was addressing me.

The screenshots of both are below, of the great tabloid, who are so democratic that they can’t keep a simple criticism in their FB community for long.

I have one request...who ever sees this post, please share this...this hypocrisy shouldn't go un reported...its a duty to society, I did my part, and I expect others to do that too...

A journalist is a bad guy to mess with...


That's all folks...
