Appalling Indian Media

Post by Sparchi » Sun Feb 27, 2011 1:04 pm

Once again the irresponsible Indian media are firing up the Indian public by blowing things out of all proportion.

Ricky Ponting was run out in the match against Indian media and was understandably frustrated by the situation. When he returned to the locker room he threw his box into his sports bag and it ricocheted out and hit a TV. The TV was damaged, it lost picture in that portion of the screen.

Now here's how the Indian media report it: Ponting threw his bat at the screen and smashed it and the TV had to be replaced.

There's nothing the media in India prefer that firing up racial tensions and once again they have excelled. Shame, Indian media, shame on you. Just how much more backwards can you be?

They're at it again Sparch. They are now reporting that Brad Haddin is being investigated for "Slow Batting" as an act of spot fixing, which is probably not true but if it is, it's totally ludicrous. The fact of the matter is Australians don't cheat, but I guess it's like politics over there, if you throw enough mud maybe some of it will stick.

If the media were like that in Australia, we'd be up in arms. I guess when you have a class system that enforces by birthright decadence to some and a life in the gutter to others, a backwards media is a natural outcome.
