      He was just trying to show the body language of Barkha which was full of attitude and arrogance. Here also she was trying to dominate the situation. It is not necessary that u have to be loud every time. It just shows that u r not ready to take any criticism.

    I think MT has gone a bit too soft with Burkha….

  • nandita ( LSR)

    Barkha is the ultimate women power and on the same time a sneaky reporter who knows how to get her feet in the circus inside the crowd!! she said it all by giving each thrown question a strong answer which offcourse carried a lot of weight in it. She does the way she wants to do…we still have to dig out the tabloid journalism…as i was taught how things make it upto the front page.

    what on whoever’s name…camera? shooting?

    Me thinks, yeh tho Nira Radia ki bhi Amma hai…

    if she really has nothing to hide, then barkha dutt should submit to an independent audit of assets held in her and her family’s name?

    that she only blocks those followers who are abusive is a blatant lie; ms.dutt blocked me for daring to query her on the assets and bank accounts she controls, and asking her why, as an independent journalist, she was was demanding the media “respect sonia gandhi’s privacy” during the time ms.gandhi was undergoing medical treatment in america, paid for by the indian tax payer.
    it is our right to inquire about the well being, and mental capacity, of the person who is india’s most powerful person, and has influence over the lives of 1.3 billion indians.
    for daring to raise such questions on twitter, i was blocked by the “fair” ms.dutt.

    Barkha….. please speak slowly and calmly….
    There should be some difference between politicians and journalists.

  • Abhishek kumar

    Better learn from Madhu or Talveen. You sound very arrogant. I am sorry to say ….

  • T

    Sack the camera guy

    Madhu, I appreciate your and Anand’s work the most on Newslaundry. But in your interview with Barkha Dutt I think you were too soft. You let her go easy especially on the Radia tapes…

  • Human

    She is not a journalist.. she uses gossip to get her stories!? Journalists should investigate & ask direct questions to get information.. not gossip with Nira Radia types…

    No wonder she is hysterical now… wrong choices made at the start of her career & she believed all the accolades… the sand foundation not strong enough…

  • Ni Vas

    Barkha is the best example of how a journalist cannot be.
