Journalist slammed on Social Media for calling massive political violence merely a ‘mess’

Faye DSouza, Editor of Mirror Now, took to Twitter to describe the series of violence which has ensued in West Bengal as a ‘mess’.

The journalist, who has found herself mired in controversy in the past as well for peddling fake news in the Ryan school murder case, was slammed by people on the social media for offering soft words in condemnation of the vicious political violence that is being perpetuated in Bengal.

People also observed the stark contrast in the words of the journalists to condemn acts of violence based on the political inclination and affiliation of those involved.

Some also observed that journalists appeared to be more concerned with less than smart statements made by Tripura Chief Minister than the wholesale violence that is allegedly being perpetrated by TMC goons during the Panchayat elections being held in West Bengal.

West Bengal is witnessing a very bloody Panchayat election this time around as reports of a potential ‘Saffron Surge’ has gripped the state. TMC cadres are alleged to have been repeatedly attacking BJP workers and candidates. However, the mainstream media has conspicuously given Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee a free pass thus far.
