The Wire founders Siddharth Varadarajan and M K Venu become butt of all jokes

The Internet is unforgiving. Recently, the leftist propaganda website, The Wire, which seems to be on a mission to spread innuendoesliespropagandamisrepresentations, and other such canards, has reduced itself to a joke. After the recent ‘exposé‘ by abusive troll Swati Chaturvedi masquerading as a journalist, twitterati donned their creative cap and brought us some entertainment on an otherwise sleepy Sunday.

It all started when it was brought to people’s notice that under the UPA, Rajya Sabha TV, which came under the control of former vice president Hamid Ansari, was allegedly used to spread agenda and pay the ‘loyalists’ handsomely.

Both, M K Venu and Siddharth Varadarajan, founding editors of The Wire, were paid handsomely, Rs. 15,000 per appearance, totalling to Rs. 33 lakh and Rs. 14.70 lakh respectively, of the tax payers’ money in last few years. Varadarajan, who hosted a show discontinued it from April, while Venu was told not to host the shows he was hosting since August. It is only after August that the hit-jobs by The Wire have gone up.

People didn’t take too long to connect the dots and reduce them to a joke. Here are some of the funniest reactions.

As a Twitter user pointed out, perhaps the change of guard and fear of probable scams being unearthed could be the reason some people might have felt ‘unease’.

Perhaps it is time for The Wire to pay heed to this tweet.
