Tonight on The Buck Stops Here:
#ShootingTheMessenger: Arvind Kejriwal vs Media
In a direct attack on the media, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said that "a large section of media has taken a supari to finish Aam Aadmi Party". On The Buck Stops Here, we ask: why is Kejriwal shooting the messenger? In media-driven politics, are politicians becoming more hostile to journalists? And should a party that many say is a direct by-product of a media age be complaining about journalists?
Did media jingoism undermine military's efforts in Nepal: #OpMaitriTurnsUnfriendly?
Nepal has denied reports that India's rescue contingent has been singled out for de-induction. Nepalese government says it has asked 34 international search and rescue teams to begin the process of withdrawal since relief and not rescue was the priority now. But the decision has come a day after #GoHomeIndianMedia was trending on social media. On The Buck Stops Here, we debate: has Operation 'Maitri' turned unfriendly? Has Indian media played any role in it? Are geo-political faultlines creating tremors in Nepal?
