Rahul Gandhi doesn’t need to defend himself, loyal journalists would do that for him

Shehzad Poonawallah, the ousted Congress member has been accusing Rahul Gandhi of meeting Nirav Modi after the PNB bank fraud came to light. Though BJP or any party has not politicised it so far, he has questioned the Congress president regarding the matter.

However, Rahul Gandhi doesn’t even have to lift a finger to defend himself. There are many in the media who are willing to do that on the Congress president’s behalf.

Pallavi Ghosh, a journalist from Network18, asked fellow journalists to “ignore” Shehzad:

Pallavi Ghosh’s defence of Congress party president was criticised by Twitter users. The journalist was asked if she was a spokesperson of the Congress party and wondered where this loyalty comes from.

Former Congress member Shehzad Poonawallah likened the journalist to a Kaurava dynasty’s generals. He had also commented that he was boycotted by the media houses that had good contact with the dynasty in an interview to OpIndia.

These instances raise serious doubts not only on the independence of the Media but also on the fact that the ones who bat for political leaders, especially the Congress Shehzada the most, are also the loudest when it comes to propagating principles of “speaking the truth to power”. It is no secret that Pallavi Ghosh is close to the dynasty, but to display such bias in the event of serious questions of political propriety is unbecoming, even for her.

Perhaps for Pallavi Ghosh, real journalism means asking Rahul Gandhi about Pidi.
