    This “rolled out of the bed” look that Srinivasan is carrying is so aanoying I can’t watch it beyond 2 minutes. The discussion isn’t gripping either. The other “Can You Take It?” episodes were much better.

  • Subhash

    Srinivasan seems to defend NDTV’s policies when it appears that most of the programs on Profit are advotorial. Questions asked are revealing but answers by Srinivasn insipid and far away from truth.

  • Bhaskar

    Well done Madhu. Enjoyed the piece.

  • Ashish Khushu

    Good interview, always felt he is underrated. One of the better folks on NDTV.

    Voting percentage is not low in Bombay, in-fact election to election we had 20% more voters in 2012. The voter rolls in Bombay are inflated by at least 30%.

    Why is Madhu checking her phone?Find that quite annoying and disrespectful

    • Alankar

      I absolutely agree. It defies basic etiquette. Coming that from somebody like Madhu Trehan is surprising.

      • Chiruvolu Ravikiran

        It looks like the mobile is a prompter/note pad of some sort (Madhu looks at it at a later point asking Srinivasan about ) – so, I am not sure about bad manners.

    • Ankur Saxena

      Its kind of a notepad where she writes points to be discussed … she should have used a Tablet to avoid controversy

  • Anand

    The name of Srinivasan’s show, ‘Truth vs. Hype’, betrays something quite interesting. One would think that’s what media’s job was in the first place; to separate truth from hype. Naming the show in that way suggests that the rest of the coverage contains substantial hype.

  • ARMAAN NAYAR

    the only journalist who hasn’t given me a chance to distrust him is srinivasan jain. i hope he ll maintain that.

  • Sharada Annamaraju

    Why is Trehan constantly interrupting Sreenivasan and speaking more than him? Isn’t that what interviewers are NOT supposed to be doing? 2) Does everyone on Newslaundry write like they write on their blogs and rant without any depth and analysis? The more i read this site, the more it seems so. It really makes it more difficult for public to appreciate newmedia.

  • Pallavi

    Madhu, can you please learn when to shut up in your interviews? Lady, grow out of your hubris, nobody is interested in listening to your voice all the time. The interviews and site are not about you. There are some good writers writing for the site, let those people bring quality and perspectives to the site. I am a fan of Anand Vardhan’s excellent articles on Newslaundry and Indrazit Hazra is also nice to read.

  • Deepak Bajpai

    Seriously, this man is very optimistic, dude sometimes viewers just need to hear someone like you even if you are defending something deeply rigged.

  • Sai Deepak B

    I hope Ms Trehan soon understands the concept of generation gap. This is with respect to the “sermonize” comment.
