News Channels Being Stupid?

This guy/ Guys/ gal/gals is /are simply amazing. I admire the way he/she/they really makes/make an effort to write and before writing, does/do some actual research. After reading his/her/their post, it seems that news channels are still living in some fools paradise. They still have to feel the impact of internet how they can’t fool the common public (netzians) now.
Here is what, Padma Vidushak, Rajdeep Sardesai’s channel, CNN-IBN, felt about Madame President’s birthday celebration:

It was the first Presidential birthday in many years to be celebrated outside the grandeur of the Raisina Hill. First Lady Pratibha Patil celebrated her 73rd birthday with the destitute and the mentally challenged in their homes, in complete contrast to her predecessor Kalam, whose birthday celebrations looked more like Children’s Day celebrations inside Raisina Hill.[link]

Now what barbarindians did? He/she/they posted five links. Each links describes where and how ex-president Kalam celebrated his birthday. And surprisingly none of his birthday was celebrated in Raisina Hill!
I am just copying and pasting his work.

If you try posting all these links on CNN-IBN’s site they will “moderate” it. 🙂
