The Hindu, A Lefty?

August 4, 2007

the hindu news paper

It doesn’t suprise me that much, to see New York Times labelling “The Hindu” as left wing,  it just comes as a mild shock.  I was reading about Dr.Ron Paul’s Times front page article, when i came across this line

Paul is surely the only congressman who would cite the assertion of the left-leaning Chennai-based daily The Hindu that “the world is being asked today, in reality, to side with the U.S. as it seeks to strengthen its economic hegemony.”

Wow, now this is the Times man, branded by some as Left-Wing elitist paper, calling our Hindu, left leaning. Certainly things will never be the same from tomorrow morning. I guess the ads and the obituary column (my favorite, as always) are the only sections i’m gonna be going through. I should’ve known when they let that socialist/Maoist Keshav do all the caricature cartoons, and how their OP-Eds sometimes greatly supported that moron Chavez even when he is proclaiming himself as the emperor of Venezuela. I regret that,  it dint even strike me when N.Ram got Chomsky and Stigltz to give their famous anti-Globalisation talks here in Chennai. Bad Bad Editor! But I guess its my fault too, i failed to see the big statutory warning right on the front page.

Jus Kidding!  I always knew they were leaning left, and the other paper i read , ET,  is at the opposite of the spectrum. I believe the human mind should be wooed by both wings, and left alone for sometime to ponder which one is idiotic and which one is practical. I just thought getting mentioned in the NY Times is worth blogging
