This is the third week since Newslaundry has been locked out of its YouTube channel. So if you’re reading this, chances are you’re reading it on our website or our Dailymotion channel. Our reach has been severely affected because of Aaj Tak’s strikes, so please do share this link with friends and family before you read on.
This week, we look at some of the Bollywood naach-gaana that is used to add some tadka to India Today’s “news offerings”. We also look at how the continuing Aryan Khan bail saga was top priority even as floods ravaged Uttarakhand and Kerala. We waited in vain for a discussion on climate change. On CNN-News18, the silly Fabindia controversy was a point of discussion for Anand Narasimhan. No points for guessing how that went. Meanwhile, on Anjana Om Kashyap’s debate show, BJP and Congress spokies achieved new lows.
