Newspaper reporting: Mathrubhumi following Manorama? I was wondering how bad newspaper reporting was getting having seen this piece which came on The Mathrubhumi website. Totally uncalled for, whatever be the reasons.

What will happen when he eats Biryani??? Now that is what I call ‘investigative journalism’ rofl :)) LikeLike vellithira February 8, 2006 Well the difference between Manorama and Mathrubhoomis is : Manorama would have illustrated, with an artist’s help, CM eating Puttu and Kadala. LikeLike Sreejith Kumar February 9, 2006 Re: SilverineIt is! It is the ultimate investigative journalism. You can call it ‘Mallu paparazi’ also! ROFL! LikeLike Sreejith Kumar February 9, 2006 Re: VellithiraVoila! Surely, Manorama would have used graphics to illustrate it! Now I see Mathrubhumi getting closer to them. The next time something like this happens, I expect Artist Madanan to make a sketch of it! LOL LikeLike White Forest February 10, 2006 well could you tranlsate wat that means ? I don understand/read malayalam 🙂 LikeLike Mallu_outlaw February 10, 2006 ha…they have nothing else to talk about.. LikeLike White Forest February 10, 2006 ….can you translate wat that means? I dont understand/know how to read malayalam?LOL’z… LikeLike Sreejith Kumar February 10, 2006 Re: White ForestPuttu and Kadala is Mallu breakfast combination! Puttu is prepared by steaming rice flour and Kadala curry is nothing but a curry prepared using chickpeas! 🙂Re: Mallu_OutlawIt gives everyone a thought that they have nothing else to talk about! 🙂 LikeLike Sreejith Narayanan February 14, 2006 yeah man.. very true.. mathrubhumi has come down in its level really these days (I am making a simple assumption here that you also follow mathrubhumi :)).. especially the varanthappathippu and editorial. and there is nothing to read in the full newspaper, as most of the news are some obituary (I am not saying its irrelevant, but somewhere u have to draw the line), then some cheap political gimmicks of our illustrated politicians. at the expense of many good articles/news.Same is the state, I believe of Mathrubhumi Aazhchappathuippu LikeLike Sreejith Kumar February 14, 2006 Re: Sreejith NarayananYes, I do follow Mathrubhumi. But I read other papers too including Manorama. I think only one page is reserved for obituary as is the case with all the papers. The illustration of cheap politics is the thing we really don’t want to see. But I guess that also is the case with all the papers. The level of politics is going down constantly these days and so does the reporting. I become huffy whenever I see pictures of boasted political progenies in these papers, which really is a shame. These days, papers give the impression that they need to satisfy somebody so badly. LikeLike Sreejith Narayanan February 14, 2006 Abt the cheap politics,is it because people really like such kind of articles that they are fond of publishing them?Or is it the political pressure (or bias) which is forcing them to print them? I am confused. What I can say is, in both the cases,kerala needs some good politicians, seriously! someone who can work for the benefit of the state leaving their personal priorities and hatredness to colleagues. Congress and commies are screwed big time because of their in fights and BJP is yet to plant its foot in the state. LikeLike Sreejith Kumar February 15, 2006 Re: Sreejith NarayananThere is no doubt that the people are interested in such stuff. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have published these cheap stuffs on paper. There are biased papers, but I don’t think Mathrubhumi shows any such inclinations, even though their MD is a strong JD-ist.About the other point made by you; I totally agree with you. Both Kerala and India need brilliant politicians rather than those with vested interests. LikeLike Sreejith Narayanan February 16, 2006 I am just shocked by the news tht is below the umman chandi one.. a person died in icu in such a manner? is it tvm medical college?

LikeLike rocksea February 21, 2006 i dont see anything bad with such a statement. it is good to see our own chief minister healthy and eating his favorite food. it also means that a malayali is a malayalai wherever he goes. it is a pleasant news than lot of unnecessary “karunakaran said this..” “the other guys said this..” which only adds rubbish to every day newspapers..ohh.. we even have a blog on putt.. http://puttans.blogspot.com/ LikeLike Sreejith Kumar February 21, 2006 Re: RockseaWell, I can’t agree to your comment here. “Chief Minister recovers”, “CM’s health improved” all could have been titles suitable for such news. But something relating to what he ate was totally uncalled for. It could have been included in the detailed news. But I suppose there should be something relevant about titles everywhere. Afterall, he wasn’t in a position being not able to eat anything! 🙂 LikeLike Sreejith Kumar February 21, 2006 Re: RockseaBy the way; there is nothing wrong in Puttu! 🙂 It is a Mallu dish and I too like it.
