‘Journalist sitting in a political party’s lap is calling others godi media’, Aaj Tak’s Rohit Sardana hits out at NDTV’s Ravish Kumar

Ravish Kumar is doing journalism from the lap of someone else for the last several years, but people didn’t realise it as people didn’t analyse him closely.

After two journalists at Aaj Tak, Anjana Om Kashyap and Shweta Singh, made sly comments rebutting their colleague and India Today anchor Rajdeep Sardesai without naming him, another Aaj Tak journalist has hit out at journalists that bat for opposition parties like Congress and AAP. In a live TV program answering questions asked by viewers, senior journalist and Aaj Tak anchor Rohit Sardana made several scathing remarks on such journalists, mostly on NDTV India’s Ravish Kumar as several people had asked about him.

Replying to a person who said that the ‘kala screen wala patrakar (black screen journalist, referring to Ravish Kumar)’ is very angry over ECI and exit polls, Rohit Sardana said he remains angry all the time. He said, ‘today he says that some media anchors should be made ministers, media owners should be made ministers, why? Didn’t media anchors become ministers when they were deciding the composition of ministry sitting in the news room. They used to tell over phone, make this person minister as someone has asked so, don’t make that person minister.’ Rohit says there are problems with some people, and it is waste of time to comment much on such people.

Another viewer commented that Ravish Kumar’s face was looking gloom after seeing the exit polls, Rohit answered that if any person does the campaigning for a specific party in the name of journalism, this is bound of happen with such people. He also said, ‘I am not alleging, I am saying with full certainty that he is running the agenda of a political party for last several years. And whenever that party losses elections, his face will become gloom’. He also said that if Aam Aadmi Party wins 5-7 seats then he will feel happy also and will smile a bit.

Another viewer asked Rohit to expose the journalist who is calling Aaj Tak as ‘godi media’ (laddog media). Last month the NDTV journalist had said that 99.999% media has become slave, godi media of PM Modi. To this Rohit told him to leave this and not spend time on that journalist. ‘Anyway nobody watches him, and he keeps on and on with his monologue, and says other channels are godi media to satisfy himself’, Rohit said. ‘If you look carefully you will see that he himself sitting in a lap, and he is transferring his own low feeling about himself to others by calling other media godi media’. He also added that Ravish Kumar is doing journalism from the lap of someone else for the last several years, but people didn’t realise it as people didn’t analyse him closely.

One viewer asked about Rajdeep Sardesai calling Anjana Om Kashyap a pliant journalist, to this Rohit said that this is a matter between two journalist and Anjana has already replied to the same in her tweet, so he would not comment on the same. But he added that he disagrees there is any pliant journalist in his team, and if anyone think so, that person is wrong.

In another interesting moment in the program when a viewer named Nagender Kumar said that he will watch the results on NDTV, as it will be fun to see sad faces, anguished Congress leaders, the disappointed eyes, Sardana said that it is called sadistic pleasure.
