No facts but shout the loudest: Deepak Chaurasia makes a fool of himself once again


Aaj Tak's Deepak Chaurasia was enlightening all of us with his special comments the morning BJP leader Pramod Mahajan was shot.

Chaurasia revealed his 'closeness' with the family, like "I know his brother, sister, son, daughter....almost everybody....".

Then, he went on to describe his relations with the family for over a decade and categorically denied that there was any brother by the name Praveen.

It was shocking to see the journalist on one hand claiming that he knew Mahajan well and on the other hand, saying that he Mahajan had no brother.

'He seems to be a cousin of Pramod', said Chorasia. The Ajtak made a fool of itself as it banked upon Deepak for the special comments.

It was quite later that the channel retracted and corrected itself. Dipak...o....Dipak....the Laughter Challenge fame is only adding up to his 'reputation'.

Any idea why NDTV is suddenly quite on Volcker and CNN-IBN is dishing out exclusives on it.

It was not Chaurasia alone who was showing off his closeness to Mahajan Family. Following is from The Hoot Site:

NDTV, more specifically,
Sreenivasan Jain, took the occasion to flaunt its closeness to the Mahajan family. Jain, who was at the Hinduja hospital, was asked what the family was going through. Jain first prefaced his answer with a long-winded spiel about how on some occasions the dividing line between the personal and the professional got blurred and how he had developed a close, personal rapport with Mahajan and his family, especially his children, and that is why he got the kind of access he did, to go right up to the family where no one else is being allowed. Do viewers really care? All we wanted was for him to tell us what was happening.

I wonder how this Commie too became so close to Mahajan. If only some honest journos can expose the dirty connections of Mahajan with the media ppl.

They think they will earn points in public but it doesn't happen and rather this shows the shallowness of these journos. They are exposed how they are bedazzled with the politicians.

एक बात बताउं भैये. पैसे का खेल है. पर्सनल रेपो जैसी बातें तभी होती है जब कोई पत्रकारों की खातिरदारी जमकर करता है. हम लोग पहुंच जाते हैं दरबारों में हाज़िरी देने. अमर सिंह और प्रमोद महाजन जैसे नेता अच्छे प्रबंधक भी तो हैं. अपन तो ज़ेबें भरने में भरोसा रखते हैं. आप लोग सिद्धांतों की बात करें तो करें.

As a student of Indian history, I find those like Mr Promod Mahajan are being targeted for assassination by islamic gangs. Didnt his brother manipulated by drugs and alcohol from an islamic gangster?!!!
