The minister, the prime minister & the advisor


Was the information and broadcasting minister Ambika Soni invited to the prime minister’s inquisition on television? Or not?

Depends on which paper you read.

If you read The Indian Express (top) on Monday, for instance, she was informed by the PMO about the interaction but then told about the space crunch and asked to stay away. If you read the Hindustan Times (below) on Tuesday, it was all the handiwork of the PM’s media advisor Harish Khare.

How well is Harish Khare advising the prime minister?

Never believe anything until it’s officially denied

    If you read a single newspaper, you are ill-informed or misinformed. If you read more, you remain not only ill- and misinformed but also confused.
