“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that is power(….)”-Malcolm X. However, news media have excelled in the art of abusing this power with Times Of India securing the top spot. They cite dead people as being alive and make the alive dead, it’s almost like a funny Bon Jovi ‘Dead or Alive’ game.
Here are the top 5 errors made by the Indian media in less than two months….
1. RIP Sachin Tendulkar! – TOI
Talk about killing two birds with one stone.
2. Messi Joins Rahul as Top Scorer – TOI
When autocorrect is involved, things can get a little Messi.
3. Dumb to Dumber – DD anchor
We don’t know which is worse; that she is allowed to be a news anchor or that no one has uploaded a dubstepped remix of this yet.
4. Everton in ISL – HT
Yes, of course, and Morgan Freeman ate vada pav with us last night!
5. Same article under two different headings – TOI
Plagiarism at it’s best. Another scoop of double trouble for Times of India.
