So, as almost everyone knows, the stories about Pasha Barry's Fabulous World Slavery 2.0 Tour and its "move a 0 million, move a 0 billion" originated from NDTV and MAYBE 1-2 other media sources.
From just a little bit of digging, it turns out that NDTV has as much success in 'embedding reporters' as CNN does, this taken from blogs reacting to coverage of Mumbai's "26/11" fiasco:
and just for comedy's sake:
Judging by the above posts you'd almost think Barkha was on the other side. In fact NDTV looks like a curried-up version of CNN or FOX, right down to the somewhat interesting Desi "Rupert" character that owns it.
So NDTV has a history of spilling the beans & gaffery. But fabrication? I guess no more than CNN or FOX.
Hmm, let's do a whois on NDTV:
Bedi, Kawaljit email@example.com
207, Okhla Industrial Estate, Phase-3
New Delhi -110020
New Delhi, New Delhi 110020
Okay, that looks normal enough. There should be an Indian tech contact as well..let's look at their technical contact:
Hostmaster, Comcat hostmaster@COMCAT.COM
7109 Timberlake Road
Lynchburg, VA 24052
434-239-4272 fax: 215-489-8867
Yup that's right, Lynchburg, VIRGINIA, the Home of all Spooks(sm). Comcat, when it resolves, points to a web page that looks like it hasn't been touched since 1995. I guess they've been... uh, 'busy.' It may not even matter except that no other Indian media outlet (like TimesOfIndia) hosts in the USA. Why would they?
If you listen to 'No Agenda' sometimes you hear Curry & Dvorak floating the idea that sometimes the POTUS is in conflict with the CIA... Well. If you wanted to troll Emperor Barry, stir the pot, how would YOU do it? Probably using the media, and maybe a CIA/RAW connection.
Makes you wonder why Barry needs all that security if the 'threat' is akin to "10 men in inflatable speedboats".
