Your weekly dose of all the insanity that passes off as news on TV.

For too long, some of our dear TV news anchors were confused how to make the coronavirus pandemic about Muslims. Enter Tablighi Jamaat. Thanks to the dangerously negligent actions of this group, TV news anchors found an excuse to tarnish all Muslims as “Corona jihadis” and indulge in some good old dog-whistling.

Arnab Goswami held two straight debates on the issue. First, he communalised the debate, and then he wondered why people were communalising the debate. Then there was Sudhir Chaudhary who did what he does best. I mean, we don’t even have to spell it out anymore.

Bonus: We participate in Aaj Tak’s antakshari.

Complaining about the media is easy and often justified. But hey, it’s the model that’s flawed.
