Something is terribly wrong with our national broadcaster, and other government channels.
No, I am not referring to their content and technology – which is obviously from our grandpa’s time.
When PM Narendra Modi was addressing the parliament in his motion of thanks to the President, the ticker that ran below read this:
Earlier, a news anchor with Doordarshan had committed an “unforgivable” (by Chinese standards) error of pronouncing their President’s name incorrectly.
She made him a Roman!
In November last year, a DD News anchor goofed up her coverage of the 45th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) at Goa.
Okay, it was not her mistake – she may have been the wrong person to cover a film festival.
Which might compel you to wonder:
Who is inspiring the people behind such productions?
Hey, if you note, each of the above faux pas followed that ‘knowledgeable’ show of hers with KJo.
