Fabricated Quotes and Bad media reporting – A summary July 4, 2009

Posted by qmediawatch in Biased/Homophobic.
1 comment so far

The reporting of the Pride events in the Indian media has been overwhelmingly positive. However we note that there are some exceptions.

  • The Tamil media in general and Dinakaran reporting in particular

The Tamil media other than progressive magazines like Kalachuvadu chose to be largely silent on the issue. Among these the reporting in Dinakaran has been particularly bad and the reporter chose to focus on how the marchers dressed and used words irrelevant to the pride event.

Other Media reports:
