NDTV journalist once again caught on the wrong foot on social media

Maybe it is the pressure of falling TRPs that prompts NDTV journalists to make a fool of themselves online. Last week we saw how Sunetra Choudhury was caught in a web of lies when she misreported a statement by Minister Maneka Gandhi. Now she has done it again.

There was a time when things like Narendra Modi contracting potentially fatal diseases would excite this journalist:

But a lot of water has flown under the bridge, and now, she gets exited by the prospect of the PM being in “her town”:

And as anyone would, she hoped that Modi delivered to her something which was not done during decades of Gandhi parivar raj: a wide road to reach from Guwahati. But can you ask for something you already have? Social media users (whom NDTV honcho Prannoy Roy might call trolls for some very obvious reasons) pointed out to her that the road already existed:

The four laned highway was indeed completed 4 months back and was operational, after a prolonged and delayed construction period. One kind soul even alerted her that Shillong was now also accessible by air due to an operational airport:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsAnd that point the 1st goal-post shift was effected by Sunetra. From “where is my road” to “that airport is not commercial”:

Again Sunetra was rebutted by the user:

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsBut madam was adamant:

And here another social media user brought up flight records and showed her flights operated by Air India to Shillong:

But the ever so sharp Sunetra hit back:

Only to be given an even better reply:

At this point, the second goal-post shift was undertaken, from “no commercial airport” to “OMG so expensive ya”

And again that awkward thing called logic cropped up:

And finally, after multiple screenshots of multiple flights to Shillong, social media trolls had silenced another honest NDTV journalist and forced her to apologise:

Of course it was amazing how “narrow road” became “no commercial airport” became “expensive flights”. Maybe she should have just used this line at some point and finished the debate:
