Has Aam Aadmi Party Won or The Media Failed?
February 10th, 2015
While the entire media is busy decoding the mythical reasons behind AAP winning by such a huge margin, everyone is surprised by the fact that how such a villainous party which was written off and tagged as Anti-National, AK49, Bhagoda, Naxals, Communist, etc. has secured a resounding majority.
Dear Media, the answer lies within yourself! Today’s Delhi Election results came as a shocker to many who are not residents of Delhi as their perception for AAP and Arvind Kejriwal was being built by the media since over a year. But apparently the results were very obvious to the people of Delhi as they had built their perception about AAP and Arvind Kejriwal by witnessing AAP’s 49 Days performance a year ago.
The image of AAP to the rest of India is made by Media, while the image of AAP to Delhi’s voters is made by the work of AAP itself.
It is time we question the way media portrayed AAP, because the way they questioned AAP’s 49 days rule, it seemed like those were the worst days in the history of Indian democracy, while Delhi evidently disagrees.
Media is the fourth pillar of democracy. The Logical Indian urges all our leading media houses to be more responsible, unbiased, independent and stay out of any external influences as media is a critical and powerful tool to manipulate and build the perception of the masses.
