I hope you've been reading and seeing the news over the last few years. If you have, then you'd know that the Internet is on its way (if not already) the most popular medium of sharing information now. I hope you've not forgotten the fact that it is 'We the People' who made you who you are. I hope you remember that it is when we watch TV - that you get paid your salary.
What you have today is what was given by us. So don't let it get into your head - but then it was bound to happen. At your lofty pedestal, any barb would hurt - any criticism would rankle isn't it? After all, how dare a puny little blogger with no credentials criticise the great Barkha Dutt?
But I am sure you never feel so before shoving your mike in anyone's face and demanding an explanation for his acts. He is duty bound to answer you right? Because you are the press, you have the right to know. You can brand anyone a murderer , a criminal long before anything is proven in the courts simply because you - have the freedom of expression. No one can challenge you right?
Wrong !! Two can play this game ma'am - in fact anyone can join. Lets see who wins? Today, you and your company's lawyers may have been able to bully one blogger into submission? Do you think you'd be able to do that to a few hundred, leave alone thousands if we decide to take you on? You may have won this round, but the battle has just begun. Join it here
