Media makes mountain out of molehill

The media in Andhra Pradesh, which is following an out and out anti-government policy, has found an excellent opportunity to deride Chief Minister Dr Y S Rajasekhar Reddy by making a mountain out of mole hill in the Monday's unsavoury episode in the Assembly.

Right from the time the incident happened in the Assembly till late in the night, Eenadu television carried an opinion poll on whether it was justified on the part of the Chief Minister to use foul language against Naidu and as expected, it was a sort of mobilising the public opinion against the government and YSR in particular. So was the case with TV, though on a lessor scale. The channels continuously aired the scenes in the Assembly to create a negative impression about the Chief Minister and played down his clarifications.

As expected, the two newspapers – Eenadu and Andhra Jyothi – carried banner stories against YSR and wrote editorials. And the Telugu Desam made use of every opportunity to take advantage of the media support. The Congress leaders are now lamenting for not having a publication or channel to give the otherside of the story!
