"New Delhi" TV aka NDTV. Stirring the Pot from.. the USA?

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:

Barkha Dutt and NDTV: A Terrorist's DREAM COME TRUE

Mumbai attacks ! Shoddy Journalism .for example our star person Ms. Barkha Datt

and just for comedy's sake:

Barkha Dutt's " c*cks..." blooper on NDTV

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:

   Administrative Contact:
      Bedi, Kawaljit  
      NDTV Convergence
      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:

   Technical Contact:
      Hostmaster, Comcat               
      7109 Timberlake Road
      Suite 201
      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".

Sometimes merely registering a domain name through certain providers will result in an admin contact in VA if no contact is specified. For example if you sign up at NS and use their default domain & hosting service but specify no tech contact, then the tech contact on the whois record defaults to NS itself. So, many of these addresses end up in VA since so many of the ISPs are tied through SpookCom(tm). Just a few cents, rupees, rubles, or yuan......

Curry & Dvorak ponder that POOFTUS may be in 'conflict' wit da company? I'll have to think about that one...
What sort of *conflict*? Defined as being pissed off for not being allowed to have Kal Penn over anymore for sleepovers?

Nah, more likely the two powerful entities are in the same sheets circles as opposed to conflicting agendas, at least not officially - although that script would make for a *plausible* sideshow in this war on the U.S. middle class. Who knows?
