You are running out of time: Why Rajdeep Sardesai cuts short guests in the panel?

Cutting short the guests has become Rajdeep Sardesai's forte. And it is now very very irritating.

Everyday these CNN IBN guys collect the guests for their views and never let them finish.

The audience want to listen, the person wants to speak and here Mr Rajdeep just shuts him up. The voice is cut. What kind of uncultured journalism is this?

If you are always running out of time, then don't go for so many programmes. The channel doesnot have so many advertisements until now and still such madness.

I feel irritated everyday when Rajdeep does that. Not only the guest is humiliated, I as a general audience feel hurt at this behaviour. I never see this kind of treatment in foreign channels.

Let the guest speak, if you can't do that then increase the duration of your programme or just make it your one-man show. I like you as a journalist but the noise should be less and every person should at least be given a few minutes to speak.

All are not political spokespersons ready to blurt out sharp comments timely. Who will teach these simple things to the pioneers of Indian television news?

True.This seems to be the fashion with almost all anchors.Guests should outsmart the anchors like Amir did with Sudha Sadanand while NBA coverage.

Its true. But sometime see the RKB show on Sahara Mumbai. I think he is the best anchor we have in India.

CNN IBN is desperate for viewership. They should see how NDTV has been built professionally. NDTV's anchors do not behave like the IBN's crew. They are more calm and composed. No wonder there are many court cases against CNN IBN. But the media is also hand in glove. These court cases are never given publicity by fellow media people. Long live freedom of expression and long live free speech.

NDTV is too elitist. They invite celebrities to discuss India's foreign policy. Their anchors ensure the participants are asked emotional questions - for the channel's own benefit.

CNN-IBN is the most irritating thing on TV these days. Its the loudest. The anchors are the brutest.

Its unfortunate that if any visitor listens to Indian news channels for about an hour, he'll get an impression of Indians fighting and shouting everywhere.
