Unfortunately, the media, which is expected to hold @TelanganaCMO accountable has become servile and subservient to the government-for advertisements and administrative favors for other business interests of media owners. #Journalism #India…
No longer a blurry line between "information" and "entertainment." It's all entertainment. #media #India #TV…
Precisely why foundational course in intercultural communication and global communication must be made mandatory in journalism education. International media can’t literally translate words, terms, and phrases without providing context and nuance!…
Walmart has offered its employees a 15 percent store discount instead of holiday pay this year. Meanwhile, the company is saving an estimated $2,200,000,000 a year thanks to the Trump tax cuts. America has socialism for the rich, cold, harsh capitalism for everyone else.

Why does India’s media cover some rapes extensively and ignore others? | Convenience, proximity, and scale of crime—could be the criteria for media coverage, argues @newslaundry…
This won’t solve security and safety concerns of women in India. Instead, she should use her privileged position to initiate a much needed discussion on judicial and police reforms.…
We are quick to forget that police refused to file a case when the victim’s parents had approached them. Short-term memories don’t lead to long-term reforms.…
People rejoicing extra-judicial killings just goes on to highlight their lack of faith in due-process and judiciary. Judicial and police reforms are needed to restore that faith.…
The perpetrators of such heinous crimes deserve the harshest punishment, but by swift due process in a court of law. The police were obviously under unbearable pressure; but extra-Judicial killings will only make innocent people victims over time. Due process protects all of us.…

While we must welcome Bollywood and Tollywood actors condemning #PriyankaReddyMurder, their role in perpetuating stereotypes of women can’t be ignored. Most Indian movies include lurid dialogues and vulgar song lyrics that objectify women and normalize harassment. #Hypocrisy
American tragedy: Gun violence is so endemic that one has to think twice before going anywhere. Not very different from a war zone.…
The #PriyankaReddyMurderCase is a grim testament of how the savagery of atrocities against women remains unchanged despite India’s pretensions of being a human rights & gender- respecting nation! This sordid reality punctures all tall talk of modernity!…

Only boats can run on these Hyderabad roads. Govt: It’s Rain God’s fault. Cars are flying off the bridge with pathetic design. Govt: It’s drivers fault. Woman raped and murdered. Govt: It’s the woman’s fault to not call 100. Citizen: I know whose fault it is now !

Read several reports about insensitive response from @TelanganaPolice when Dr Reddy’s parents approached them about their missing daughter. If true, exemplary action must be taken on concerned police officials @TelanganaCMO #Priyankareddy…

#AatishTaseer If a Pakistani father disqualifies someone from being an Indian citizen, what kind of law it is which ignores that the mother is an Indian? Doesn’t the mother have as much claim as the father — in fact, more if she raised the child, not the father | Bad law | 2/2
Retweeted by Prashanth Bhat, Ph.D.
#AatishTaseer Two comments | If you can’t be an overseas citizen of India, should your father be a Pakistani, it is notable that this lapse was discovered only after the Time article critical of Modi was published, not when Aatish wrote so much about his father | 1/2

Enlightening: "Current research estimates that at least 60 percent of news stories shared online have not even been read by the person sharing them"
There are 3 billion fewer birds winging across the U.S. and Canada than there were 50 years ago -- a 29 percent decline overall. "This is the loss of nature."

Wish there was political consensus at least on this issue. Stringent traffic laws are certainly needed to reduce the number of accidents and make Indian roads safer.…
