Speaking about the factors that led to Telecom minister A Raja’s quitting, ND TV’s Barkha Dutt, enumerates the following reasons :

1. CAG report indictment
2. former DoT secretary Mathur coming out against Raja
3. the relentless opposition pressure.

She deliberately leaves out AIADMK leader Jayalalitha’s offer to the Cong-I to support the UPA government in case the DMK withdraws the support of its 28 MPs over action against Raja. This did play a crucial role in bringing the Raja case to a head.

DID Barkha leave out this important factor because Jayalalalitha made her offer over ND TV rival Times Now?

Should media competition make journalists hide facts?
