.Gossips and thrill seekers!

There was a time when the Times of India had a sterling reputation as a purveyor of news, which was cutting edge and what the public was looking for. Unfortunately, now the Times of India has deteriorated into a newspaper which does not seem to have the courage of its convictions and that can be seen quite clearly, because it cannot even do a little bit of straightforward reporting of the facts right in front of you, without telling you that it is not quite sure about whether the news is true or not!

Now, how is that, you might ask? Well, it allegedly *implies, insinuates, and talks to you about the *alleged reports, which you are seeing right in front of your eyes, because hey, it does not really know whether it is true or not, and that is why it needs to make all these allegations.

Not onlydoes this italicized misuse of the word allege, * smack of coy archness, but it also shows a patronizing attitude of "listen, we have made these *allegations and whether you believe them or not, is your problem. By the way, we have managed to protect ourselves from any sort of libel, because after all we can say that we wrote "*Alleged" *in front of the statements we made."

Now, take for example the reporting of the Queen of Sheba's visit to the court of Solomon.

The Hindustan Times is going to report it in this manner - the Queen of Sheba, the head of state of Sabah was a visitor in the court of Solomon, where she and her husband were warmly welcomed by the reigning monarch of Judaea…

The Times of India is going to report this event in this manner - the Queen of Shebathealleged head of state of Sabah was a visitor in the court of Solomon, where she and her husband were allegedly warmly welcomed by…

Saw the difference? Not only have they managed to make the report provocative, but they have also managed to insinuate that perhaps Solomon did not welcome them warmly. And they have also made you feel suspicious about whether the Queen of Sheba is really *the head of the state of Sabah or not? This sort of conjecture, we can do without, when we are interested in straightforward reporting. So anybody who is interested in coy insinuation, arch hints and implications can get his thrills from the Times of India. I intend to stick to Hindustan Times, which gives me *Seedhi Baat, no bakwaas!

Now, my criticism was going to be reported in the Times of India in such a manner – Dueep Jyot Singh allegedly wrote on Mouthshut that the Times of India was not reporting the news in a professional manner, but was hinting at the news. She also *alleged *that many of the pictures, as well as some news items seen in the times of India, were picked straight from the Hindustan Times previous day's issue.

I am not alleging, guys, I am telling you!
