The Newslaundry noodle cook-off: Nestle’s Maggi noodles versus Patanjali’s Atta noodles
November 24, 2015
This is one of the 4 “Bharat Nirman” full-length video advertisements (of the Congress party and the Nehru-Gandhi royal dynasty) made by the Directorate of Advertising and Visual Publicity (DAVP), that comes under Ambika “Sonia’s favourite pet” Soni’s Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, at the expense of the taxpayer’s money. DAVP is the strong arm of the govt when it comes to controlling the media houses. It comes up with the govt’s advertisement rate card and placements in various media houses (which is the money lever through which the Congress party and Nehru-Gandhi royal dynasty exercises editorial control over all mainstream media houses in India).
And no wonder the entire mainstream media absolutely LOVES the Congress party and the Nehru-Gandhi royal dynasty. Because it is only the Congress that uses (errr… *wastes*) the taxpayer’s 1000s of crores every year on placing ads with media houses, to celebrate the birth (or mourn the death) anniversaries of the deceased-and-living icons of the Congress party and the Nehru-Gandhi royal dynasty.
Ahhh … the city of Delhi and its degenerate culture of cronies … the incestuous but happy marriage between politics and media … it’s all such a big and cozy gravy train. Please, let it never be disturbed by inconvenient outsiders like Anna Hazare or Narendra Modi …
