Media men manhandled at Amir Khan's marriage

Don't cry when you don't have guts to say 'piss off' to a celebrity who misbehaves:
So once again the journalists faced the embarrassment, trying to gatecrash the party of Amir Khan. The entire media fraternity was red-faced seeing the news alerts 'Patrakar pite' or 'media se marpeet'.
Who is at fault now? Of course, everyone has the right to privacy and if Khan's men behaved badly journalists too sometimes become a nuisance and they did make a fool of themselves. The mad race for TRP forces them to rush to every event.
But isn't it time for channels to draw a line. The bureau chiefs must stop dashing their reporter at such odd places. Amir could have given the task of informing media to a person but he didn't and we can't complain. Even none of the television channels let alone all of them together have the guts to black out him or any celebrity who misbehaves. Because the next time a reporter gets a chance of Amir speaking to him/her, the reporter would not let it go and the channel will forget all the humiliation to journalism and journalists and telecast the story.
So don't cry when you don't have the guts to say "piss off'' to a celebrity until he says sorry. You will fall at the feet of the star to get a few damn bytes and then cry that he didn' let you in. Come on, don't shed tears and make a mockery of yourself. Even sms polls indicate that overwhelming majority of Indians said that it is a star's right to guard his privacy and those who said against were mostly being courteous to you on camera. If you have the guts, don't go overboard the next time when Amir Khan's upcoming film would be ready for screening and he will be needing you help to make it hit.
